Ben and Reed (Mr. Fantastic) are in the lab at the Baxter Building, where once again Reed is trying to cure Ben. Once again he fails, this time with a twist. It seems Ben's system is adapting and evolving over time, and though Reed has a cure, it would only have worked back when Ben first became the Thing. It wouldn't work now.
Reed leaves, and Ben suddenly has an idea- since it would have worked earlier, why not drink it earlier? Ben hops into Dr. Doom's time machine, sets the controls for not long after the F.F. formed, and heads back in time, intending to have the earlier version of himself take the cure. He ends up in an empty Baxter Building, and slips out just as an earlier Reed and a realtor enter the building to have a look arouns.
Inside Ben's old apartment, the old, dinosaur-hided Thing sits and sulks. Outside, on the street, our Ben surprises a couple, and the woman shrieks and faints. While our Thing tries to help her, the old Ben emerges to see a 'monster' looming over the fallen woman. The fight is soon on...
