      Mr. Fantastic; Human Torch; Invisible Girl

The Set Up:
      Ben Grimm is in Soho near Alicia Masters apartment. After an encounter with some neighborhood kids (and after we see the introduction of some mysterious lurking figures who are watching Alicia's apartment), Ben heads up to her apartment, and the two are reconciled. Ben has a solution to the difficulty of not being able to protect Alaicia- he asks her to move into the Baxter Building with him. The other members of the FF approve, and Ben and Alicia are soon packing her things and arranging to move her.
     Our mysterious watching figures are soon revealed to be trying to steal Alicia's statues, and take advantage of moving day. They knock out the movers, throw 'em in the back of the van, and drive off with the statues, ditching Ben in a rather embarassing way in the process.
     Ben is soon hot on their tails again, and after a quick take down of the truck with a frisbeeing manhole cover, Ben if facing off against the team of Livewire and Shellshock on the very familiar grounds of Yancy Street...

Clobberin' Time?:
      Not in this issue.

Petunia's Patch:
      No Aunt Petunia either.

Things of Interest:
      Shellshock and Livewire both first appeared in Fantastic Four Annual 5, as flunkies of the Psycho-Man. While Livewire had had some other appearances here and there, Shellshock only has one more appearance, in MTIO 97, before becoming yet another victim of the Scourge in Captain America 319.
