The Prisoners of the Pharoah! wiki last edited by fesak on 03/02/14 09:50AM View full history

After a day in the museum, Reed reads about a rare herb used during ancient Egyptian times which returned eyesight. Realising that this could cure Alicia Masters's blindness, he gets together the rest of the Fantastic Four. The four then go to Doctor Doom's castle, which they visited in Fantastic Four #5, and use the time machine still located there to go back to Egyptian times. However, all four are shot by a gun which takes away their powers. The wielder of the gun is a pharoah who calls himself Rama-Tut. He tells the Fantastic Four that he is from the year 3000, and that he travelled back in time in search of something to conquer. However, he was blinded, but the natives brought him a radioactive herb that restored his eyesight. He then makes the Thing row boats up and down the Nile, makes Mr. Fantastic a scout for enemies, makes the Human Torch his personal jester and plans to marry the Invisible Girl. However, the Thing changes back to Ben Grimm due to the intense heat, and frees the others. They then chase Rama-Tut back to his own century, and take the herb that restores eyesight. However, the time machine cannot transport radioactive materials from the past to the present or vice versa, so their trip was useless.

Thinking this can possibly cure Alicia, the FF travel to Doctor Doom's abandoned castle to use his still working time machine to travel to ancient Egypt. There they encounter Rama-Tut, a descendant of Doom's who traveled to the past in a time traveling sphinx to become...
