Flipping through Fantastic Four Essentials Vol. 1, the following panel perplexed me:
“Flame Off!”? Really? I mean, I get “Flame On!” It’s his catchphrase, the thing he says to pump himself up, to let people know he means business, and if you are some sort of evil science monster you are about to have your ass fried. But “Flame Off!”?
Maybe he was just pissed because The Thing had used the FF Emergency Flare™ to gather the team, who had the burn through some sort of nuclear door, so they could all marvel at Alicia Masters’ sculptures.
There’s nothing Ben Grimm wouldn’t do to impress some little blind girl.
