Franklin Richards: Summer Smackdown!

IN THE cute opening yarn to this one-shot put together by Chris Eliopoulos and Marc Sumerak, The Thing has agreed to do a charity bout for the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation (as first seen in his own solo series from the 1980s).

He brings along Franklin and his pet robot H.E.R.B.I.E. Unfortunately, The Thing's opponent Thunder is actually a super-villain seeking revenge against the Fantastic Four.

Luckily, Franklin comes to the rescue with a secret weapon stolen from his dad's laboratory.

Problem solved.

This is a nice one-shot - I'd recommend it to any parent who has kids.
