The Physics Of The Double-Punch

Hello, and welcome to episode 166 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

This week, we're taking a diversion into the world of Marvel Feature, which itself diverges into the first stages of Jim Starlin's Thanos tales. Marvel Feature #12, which guest-stars Iron Man, sees Starlin pick up threads from his Captain Marvel stories, tying The Thing and the Blood Brothers into a giant punch-up, with aid from scripter Mike Friedrich and inker Joe Sinnott.

Join us as we take a look at this titanic team-up, examining the logistics of superhero flight, the curious lack of definition for the Blood Brothers' powers, and more. We've also got some exciting Patreon news for you.
