Synopsis for "Where Treads the Living Totem!"Edit
While Susan is still in the hospital, the FF get mail from Johnny's friend Wyatt Wingfoot who has been spending the summer back with his tribe. He asks for the FF's assistance in helping him solve the mystery of some hauntings that have been going on in the area.
Traveling to Wingfoot's tribe, the group learn that the tribes people are being terrorized by their god Tomazooma, the Living Totem. However, they soon learn that an oil company is interested in the land, are behind Tomazooma, using a robot built after the tribe's god of worship to scare them off the land.
With Reed, Johnny and Ben's help, Wyatt manages to destroy the false Tomazooma robot, and after the battle, the group is shocked to see that the real Tomazooma had come to destroy the impostor, but is now leaving seeing that they managed to destroy its fake without its help.
- The Fantastic Four next appear in Fantastic Four Annual #6
- Sue is absent here because she is in the advance stages of her pregnancy and has been hospitalized as seen in Fantastic Four #79. She discovered she was pregnant in Fantastic Four Annual #5 and took a leave from the team in Fantastic Four #72.
- Wyatt Wingfoot is using the Gyro-Cruiser given to him and Johnny by the Black Panther back in Fantastic Four #54.
- The Tomazooma seen here is actually a robot, a text story in Marvel: Year in Review #1992 states that the Tomazooma robot was rebuilt into a clock and put on display in one of the Bars with No Name. It is unclear if this is part of continuity or not. The robot was later recovered by the Reanimator who rebuilt the robot in Wolverine Vol 2 #149 and pitted it against Wolverine and the New Warriors.
- The real Tomazooma is identified as a member of the Manidoog pantheon of gods as stated in Thor & Hercules: Encyclopaedia Mythologica #1. He has only been glimpsed once after this story. He is one of the gods who attended a meeting of the Council of Godehads in Thor #300 to discuss how best to deal with the Celestials.
- After this story Wyatt Wingfoot is not seen again until Fantastic Four #135, as he returned to Metro College to continue focusing on his studies.
- The Keewazi people are next seen in Fantastic Four #138 when they are being terrorized by the Miracle Man.
- The plot carried out by the Red Star Oil Company was duplicated with even less success by the Roxxon Energy Corporation in Original Sin #0. The plan was thwarted by the Avengers.
