A kid gets freaky with Molecule Man’s old wand, which Thing gave to one of her friends at the end of Marvel Two-in-One #1. The wand hade been depowered in that issue, but the chemicals in Man-Thing’s swamp trigger them again.
But over the course of the story, Man-Thing gets involved and the real Owen Reece re-materializes…
…After taking over the body of an alligator.
Iron Man’s in this story, but he’s not really necessary to it, which is kind of interesting because Man-Thing was often a side player in his own mag.
He spends most of his time trying to be effective against a walking pile of slime.
