Cryptic Title Derived From Minor Joke

Hello, and welcome to episode 129 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

The Thing - dead. The Hulk - missing. The Human Torch - angry. Mr Fantastic - prostrate. The Invisible Woman - inconsequential. The Over-Mind - Fourth World-ish. Stan Lee - not paying attention. Steve's microphone - faulty.

Andy and Steve it down to cover Fantastic Four #113, featuring the first appearance of the Over-Mind, the fate of Ben Grimm, and plenty of other things that escape me at the point I'm sitting down to write these notes. Some kind of note-pad to be used during the editing would seem to be in order...
