Fantastic Four #18 (1961)


Synopsis: My all time favourite super villain starts in his first comic book outing in which the Skrulls after getting fed up of constantly getting beaten by the Fantastic Four find a way of replicating the teams powers into one Super Skrull how will the team ever defeat Kl'rt.
Writer: Stan "THE MAN" Lee
Penciler: Jack Kirby
Inking: Dick Ayers
         
Review: This comic is a true blast from the past. Around issue 18 is when i the Fantastic Four comics set themselves apart from all others. Lee and Kirby started taking more and more risks and properly developing each of the characters abilities and personality. Its one of the first examples in a comic of team of superheroes that are completely out matched by the villain and have no choice but to run. This adds  a nice feel to the comic we've all gotten so used to these completely unbeatable heroes that no matter how powerful the villain, would get defeated easily. I would definitely recommend this comic even if your not normally a fan of the Fantastic Four one of the great classics and one of Lee and Kirbys greatest work
Grade: A+
