Aryan, Shmaryan! - or Ben Grimm Hits Stuff pt.3
When we meet our hero in Marvel Two-In-One #20, he' s been thrown back in time by an unusually zaftig Watcher to find a lost vibranium cylinder. This being a Roy Thomas story, it's 1942 and there're lots of Nazis to fight.
Taking a break from freaking people out in Times Square, Ben decides to check out that extra-crazy, giant metal swastika that's flying around lopping off the tops of skyscrapers.
Who does he find piloting the craft? Only the most arrogant, disembodied Nazi scientist brain this side of Ultra-Humanite - Brain Drain!
Exactly how many evil brains in jars are there anyway? I can think of at least ten or eleven.
Ben does the sensible thing and begins pounding the craft into little metal bits. Brain Drain, of course, flips out and demands to know what the hell is going on.
Like any good hero, Ben just loves flashbacks and expository dialogue. So after a few pages, Brain Drain's entirely caught up. Just in time for him to land his craft and let some of his super-powered Nazi friends jump the Thing. Ben gets smacked around for a few panels before he decides to let loose and bust some Aryan heads.
Maybe they should've called it Marvel Three-In-One. Ha!
So anyway, Ben gets a couple of more good punches in-
before the Liberty Legion arrives to mop up. He retrieves the vibranium cylinder and heads back to good ole' 1976. All is well.
and for no good reason whatsoever-
