Can Thing breathe underwater?

I know he can withstand the pressure of ocean depths, but can he breathe underwater too? Or does he need to breathe at all?

Though Reed's probably developed some doohickey that'll let him breathe underwater. He made one so Johnny could use his powers in space hasn't he?

No he can't, but back in an early issue of 'Marvel-Two-in-One", when Ben teamed-up with the Sub-Mariner, he took a pill that Mr. Fantastic had developed/invented to enable the user to breathe underwater for about an hour.

Does this answer your question,

and this is definitely not for an hour, remember hes casually fighting just like he does on land.
