Role in the StoryEdit
Thing grabs his opponent's head, snaps their neck about halfway, let's go so they can stumble backwards, but he then reaches down and grabs their ankle. He slams them down on the ground, and then once more on the other side. He then holds them up with one hand, let's go and jumps out of the way so they can hit the ground. He then jumps up and body slams them.
Some of Thing's rocks fall off of his body and he starts to glow. This causes all attack to barely do any damage.
- Intro: Thing is wearing a cloak and hat as he walks in. He takes the hat off and rips the cloak to shreds and exclaims "It's clobbering time!"
- Outro: Thing chuckles and exclaims "That's what happens when you mess with me." He then strikes a pose that shows off his muscles.
"After Thing and the rest of the remaining Fantastic Four had defeated the New Order, Thing did not know what to do with his best friend dead. He was offered to join the New Avengers, but he declined. He took a small group of metahumans out onto his old ship from his time as Blackbeard. If he wasn't going to be a superhero anymore, the Thing chose to be an explorer. The SS Yancy set off into the deep unknown, and many great adventures lay ahead for the Thing and his crew."
- Thing was the only Fantastic Four member to be in the original roster of confirmed characters.
- In the rough draft of Heroes Disassembled, the Thing being dead before the story was Mr. Fantastic's motive for joining the New Order, but that was later scrapped and the entire Fantastic Four joined the New Order, and his death was replaced with Mr. Fantastic.
