Synopsis for "A Stretch in Time..."Edit
Continued from last issue... Ben, Skull the Slayer, Ann Reynolds, Jeff Turner, and Raymond Corey have to fight off and flee a pack of brontosaurus on their way to find their airplane. Finding the craft, they find it flight worthy, but with only enough fuel to fly to were Ben's ruined jet is.
Flying it there, they cannibalize the plane to repair Ben's and they use the plane to escape through the vortex and back out of the Bermuda Triangle. However, the fugitives being spotted by the Jaguar Priest he and his followers go after them riding on their pterodactyls.
When Ben and the others arrive back at Cape Canaveral, they find Mr. Fantastic waiting there for them, having come when Ben didn't return to his flight. When the Jaguar Priest and his followers arrive, Reed helps battle them, and when Ann is captured by the Jaguar Priest himself, it's Ben that comes to her rescue. However in doing so, the Jaguar Priest is knocked from his pterodactyl and is send plummeting to his death. After the battle, Ben parts company with Scully and his friends. Scully is planning on turning himself over to the police, and the others will be acting as character witnesses to prove that his killing of his brother was in self defense. As they depart, they leave Reed and Ben to figure out what to do with the pterodactyl's.
- Raymond Corey calls Skully a murderer, this is because Jim was originally accused of murdering his brother. However as depicted in Skull The Slayer #1, Jim was forced to kill his brother in self-defense, a claim that nobody believed because Skully ran from the law and had to be extradited back to the United States, which is what led to Skully and his companions being trapped in the prehistoric past.
- Reed mentions that his powers are getting weaker, his powers began to fade in Fantastic Four #157. This is the first time he admits to this weakness to Ben. Eventually Reed completely loses his powers in Fantastic Four #178, but they are later restored to their peak in Fantastic Four #199.
- Reed mentions the Savage Land a number of times, while at this point in time Reed has yet to visit it, Ben was sent on a mission there in Marvel Two-In-One #16 establishing a connection with Ka-Zar, its ruler.
- No trivia.
