These are the first superhero comics of the Marvel Age, and you can see the trademarks of the Stan Lee style evolving in front of your eyes: DC heroes at the time had secret identities they used when they were not in costume - the civilian identities were the disguise; Marvel characters put on costumes but were still the same characters, and here they don't even get costumes until the third issue, and the Thing keeps fiddling with his for several issues before he settles on the familiar one - though his rocky skin doesn't settle down until the next volume.
The team's adventures begin with a 'Challengers of the Unknown' style story (and see the Jack Kirby Challengers Omnibus / Archives from DC for a story that has an uncanny resemblance to this one!), and we meet some of the mainstays of the Marvel Universe in this first volume - the Mole Man, the Skrulls, the Sub-Mariner and Doctor Doom (and his time machine) the Puppet Master and Alicia Masters. We also get a Namor-Doom team up, ending with the duo falling out as usual, as well as two solo appearances each. A new Golden Age began here. Don't miss out.
