Ben Grimm was a college football player and roommate of one Reed Richards and with Reed even took classes with Victor Von Doom (a.k.a. DOCTOR DOOM). He went with Reed, Sue Storm and Johnny Storm on that fateful flight and just when it seemed he gained no powers he suddenly began to change into a mass of rocks! and took on the name --- THE THING! His looks didn't bother BLIND Alicia the daughter of the PUPPET MASTER and for a long while they were seeing one another! Now single he hangs out at Chauncy Street in Manhattan and hangs with Johnny storm (the HUMAN TORCH). I am showing him with his original identity of Ben and replacing a fallen airplane landing light pole that fell over! I am also showing you him in his speedos and with lycra pants!
