But most of all nobody couldve played a better thing than Michael Chiklis. He featured all the distinguished characteristics of Ben Grimm. The Thing was more beliveable than that stupid CGI Hulk. Speaking of which in the Near future We have to see a Hulk vs. Thing movie in the near future....I mean we've seen Freddy vs. Jason, Alien vs. Predator and King Kong vs. Godzilla.
One thing was Michael really made u feel for the thing that he was a monster and an outsider to world we live in, but then he later realized he was happy with who he was cauz he was still Ben Grimm deep down inside and that he was The Thing for a reason.
But Joe if you wanna see a great story involving the human torch playing pranks on the Thing check out Marvel Fanfare #15 (especilally when the torch glues pieces of brown straws and the Thing thinks he's starting to grow stubble and whiskers on his rock body).
I am really looking foward to the Thing solo on-going series which written by She-Hulk wrtier Dan Slott which comes out in the fall. I missed the cover unveiling in Philly if anyone could find the picture of it please send it to me. Well as i sed the Thing is so cool he deserves his own series like he did in the 80's plus the prior series Marvel Two-in-One.
oh one last thing about my quote about the Hulk vs. Thing movie. My money is on ole blockhead cauz I would love to see a story where the Thing pounds the crap out of the Hulk (not much of a fan and he's an idiot). Rich Buckler even agreed with me on who he would want to win. But if this movie ever did happen I think Michael Chiklis would feel weird punching thin air if ya know what I'm saying.
