"Thunder in the Ruins!" Part 2 of 2. Script by Archie Goodwin. Pencils by John Buscema. Inks by Joe Mooney. Cover by John Buscema, John Romita (touch-ups), and John Verpoorten. With Crystal by his side, the Master of Alchemy has taken over a banana republic in Central America! When the Human Torch arrives in country, he finds himself fighting not only the national air force, but a brain-washed Crystal too! Can Johnny Storm wrest Crystal from Diablo's clutches? Fortunately, Reed, Sue, and Ben will help! Back up story: "What Mad World?" Script by Archie Goodwin. Pencils by John Buscema. Inks by Jim Mooney. To save Ben during the battle against Diablo, Lockjaw temporarily teleports the Thing to another world. But it's a strange world indeed as Reed Richards is the one that was transformed into the Thing; while Ben Grimm married Susan Storm. Perhaps Ben should get back to his own reality posthaste, before he sees too much! First appearance of the Reed Richards of Alternate Earth (Earth-A). (Notes: Diablo returns in Fantastic Four 193. Crystal appears next in Fantastic Four 130, but plays a prominent role behind the scenes in Avengers 104. The Thing (aka Reed Richards) of Earth-A returns in Fantastic Four 160. Alternate Earth would later be renamed Earth-721.) 32 pages Cover price $0.20.
