Fantastic Four #19: Reed's Stretchy Body 47

Fantastic Four #19, page 17, panel 5 Written by: Stan Lee

Drawn by: Jack Kirby

Inking: Dick Ayers

Lettering: S. Rosen

Way back in Fantastic Four #3, we saw Reed use himself to replace a burst tire on a car. Here, he goes one better, using his powers to turn himself into a giant wheel that can roll over water, to ensure he reunites with Ben and Sue as quickly as possible.

I'm not sure what I like more - the line detail that shows us his arms looping into the wheel, or the fact that once he reaches the shore, his face will repeatedly get mashed into the sand.

Check out our coverage of Fantastic Four #19 on our eighteenth episode: Pharoahs And Plants, Spiders And Soldiers
