Writer: Paul Tobin
Artist: Dean Haspiel

Several Years Ago: Gil leaves Anya in the lobby of The Baxter Building as he goes for an interview to be The Fantastic Four’s reporter. The Thing comes in and invites her up with him. She nervously accepts.

Ten minutes later, Anya is busy playing with Sue whilst Gil recalls how he first met The Fantastic Four, saving Sue from The Mole Man. Gil gets the job as unofficial official reporter and is truly honoured.

Anya wonders down the corridor to find a bathroom but finds a room where Thing and Reed are battling a strange tentacle, weapon wielding monster! Thing tells Anya to press the red button, which shuts the portal the monster was coming from! Thing asks Anya to keep it a secret…!

General Comments

This nice little back story offers a bit of context for Gil and Anya’s relationship with The Fantastic Four but not much else.

Dean Haspiel's art is a little more cartoony than I usually like but it fits the innocent, playful nature of the content.

Overall Rating

A piece of character history filled in, nothing more really.
