FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) (#1-416) (MARVEL) #24 - Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Fantastic Four (1961) #24
"The Infant Terrible" is written by Stan Lee with art by Jack Kirby and George Bell. The F.F. face off against their most cosmic foe yet and he's just a child. Our story begins with a photo shoot of the Fantastic Four arranged for Life Magazine. The reporters dutifully snap pictures and ask pictures of Mr. Fantastic, the Human Torch and the Thing. But it's the curvaceous Invisible Woman that really catches their attention. However, a new sensation just arrived in Times Square pulls the press away from Sue Storm and the rest of the F.F. Following in their Fantasticar, the super-team are shocked to find themselves suddenly swallowed by a huge floating bottle. Escaping that trap, the F.F. soon find Times Square has been transformed into a huge maze. Also, a spinning top menaces New Yorkers until the Human Torch explodes it with a white-hot fireball.

Next, an army of tin robot soldiers appear and when the Thing clobbers one, two more take its place. The source of all of this mayhem is quickly discovered. A green-skinned, bug-eyed alien is roaming through downtown Manhattan turning it into his own private playroom. All would be well except when frightened by press photographers' flash bulbs, the alien brings down a meteor storm from space. As Reed Richards puzzles about the alien's nature and origin, gangster Big Joe is hatching a plan to use the naive extraterrestrial to knock off some banks and get rich quick. The F.F. deal with the thugs easily enough and Mr. Fantastic figures out that what this "infant terrible" needs most is his parents! In a spaceship straight out of "The War of the Worlds" they answer Reed's call. But has he made a fatal error and doubled Earth's peril?
