Synopsis for "The Thing -- Enslaved!"Edit

On the planet Kral, a world whose culture is a mirror of the legendary 1930's. Mobster Machine Gun Martin who was captured and brought to the planet is the cause. Boss Barker makes a bet with his opponent Lippy Louie that his acquisition of the Thing will be able to defeat his best fighter, the Mekkan known as Torgo.

While the FF on Earth begin searching for their friend Ben, Ben himself is delivered into slavery at the hands of Boss Barker. Along the way Ben learns that the Skrulls of this planet adopted 1930's humanoid forms, inspired by Martin, and captured beings from other worlds to fight in their gladiator pits. After a few failed escape attempts, Ben is informed that he will have to fight Torgo. When meeting Torgo, Thing learns that the justification of the Mekkan's life will be the death of the Thing.

While back on Earth, Reed's deductions as to what happened to Ben, brings him to the conclusion that he was likely kidnapped by the Skrulls.
