She’s Not There

One of my favourite tales involves a virus that can mutate super powers. The virus increases The Invisible Girl’s abilities until everything she touches becomes invisible. With the FF having vanished, she calls on Spidey for help. The virus ultimately threatens the visibility of the entire universe. Even the Watcher gets involved, because after all, there may soon be nothing left for him to watch… The Cosmic storyline have us an excuse to set up the story with this great Mike Collins picture of Galactus’s glove.

I think I was echoing a comic I had read as a child where Loki, the God of Mischief, was trapped in a tree and could only escape if someone wept for him. In this strip, the Surfer could only get out if another hero was unselfish enough to take his place…
