The thing render by bobhertley-d5roo6y

He was a friend of Reed Richards who was caught in the accident that created the Fantastic Four while the others remained relatively human he was mutated into a rock-like monster and he is very sensitive about that fact Reed has promised to find a cure for Ben but so far has been unsuccessful.

Despite the tragedy behind the Thing the man remains a hero - famous for his battle-cry of "It's Clobberin' Time!" and being the resident strongman of the team he is the one most likely tearing apart a Doom-Bot or holding up a bus to save some innocents, of course he has a softer side too, despite his appearance The Thing's speech patterns are loosely based on those of Jimmy Durante.
