Synopsis for "The Madness of the Mole Man"Edit

Blinded by devices implanted in their house by the Mole Man, the Fantastic Four try to stop him without their vision. As the clumsy battle rages on, Skrulls arrive on Earth, seeking to find a warrior which they can take from the planet for the Games.

Back at the Richards' home, the FF continue to struggle to fight the Mole Man, who reveals that his plot will eventually blind the entire world as revenge for being treated as an outcast. When Reed gets hold of the Mole Man, he takes a near fatal blast from Mole Man's staff. A stray blast from the same staff also damages the device that makes the FF blind. Enraged by what the Mole Man did to Reed, Sue lashes out at him.

The Mole Man manages to get away, however, but is soon caught by the Human Torch and brought back. The Torch berates the Mole Man for wallowing in his misery and not facing his problems like the Thing or Alicia Masters. With Ben's help, Reed revives and recovers from the attack. As the FF settle down after the fight, a Skrull craft touches down on Earth.

Continuity Notes

  • The Skrulls last clashed with the Fantastic Four back in Fantastic Four #37 when the FF travelled to the Skrull throneworld to avenge the death of Sue and Johnny's father Franklin. Chronologically, the Skrulls were last seen infiltrating the FBI with their operative "Agent Baker" in X-Men: First Class Giant-Size Special #1.

    Solicit Synopsis:
  • The return of the dreaded SKRULLS! But this time, it isn't merely earth that's in dire danger — the target for an unmentionable fate is—the unsuspecting THING!

  • No trivia.
