BEN GRIMM

Occasionally, the Thing has been changed back to his human form or has been able to switch between forms. When this occurs, Ben’s STR and BODY are 5, he has no powers, and his Martial Artist is reduced to 5. He loses all of his Drawbacks except Public Identity, Minor Rage, and Unluck.

More coming soon.


These movies weren't as bad as they are accused of being. In fact, I thought they captured the spirit of the comics almost perfectly (Dr. Doom needed some work, but otherwise...).

But seriously, even this:

was a better FF movie than this:
This movie is the worst pile of crap I have ever seen. Literally. It has nothing- not acting, script, concept, cinematography, score, or special effects- nothing at all to recommend it. Batman and Robin was better. Sharknado was better. The most recent Alpo commercial is better.
Give the franchise back to Marvel.
