I sometimes wonder if these guys even read the issue they're writing about. The Thing is NOT stronger than the Hulk, he just hung in there and survived, and got one final haymaker in that injured himself worse than it injured the Hulk, but it finally knocked the Hulk out, which is I presume what severed the control the Puppet Master had over him. It's a good issue. I've read the last four or five of the current series, and I think I'm adding FF to my pull list. Haven't been a fan in the past, but between the first omnibus and the last few issues of the current series, I'm liking these characters.
