FANTASTIC FOUR #299 (1987): Baxter Bldg becomes “Freedom Plaza”


Roger Stern preps for the big Human Torch-Alicia Masters (not–she’s a skrull) wedding.  It’s a character issue: Thing pouts until She-Hulk brawls with him to work out his depression (nice, big, John Buscema fight). 

Human Torch pouts because he feels guilty taking Ben’s girl (and he should) until he talks with Spider-Man.  And, of course, it ends with Thing being the bigger man and agreeing to be best man.

Also, the Baxter Building—having been destroyed and rebuilt—is rechristened “Four Freedoms Plaza.”  Not sure I understand the name.
