Guest-Starring- Oh, No...
Hello, and welcome to episode 284 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.
This week, we're returning to T'Challa's apartment, visiting a remote airfield, and journey to, uh, Uganda to meet, uh, genocidal dictator Idi Amin. In one of the more baffling writing choices of the 1970s, Brother Voodoo and Black Panther are overshadowed by this real-world, very unwelcome guest appearance.
Roger Slifer, David Kraft, Ron Wilson, Pablo Marcos, Francoise Mouly, Joe Rosen, and Jim Shooter present Marvel Two-in-One #41, in which Brother Voodoo does very little despite being the named guest star. There's also a terrible FBI agent, a narratively-convenient urn, some really badly-structured flashbacks, a misunderstanding as to the meaning of the word 'resourceful', and... well... him.
For more on this unusual and unwelcome guest appearance, please spend some time with this article from The Middle Spaces. https://themiddlespaces.com/2016/05/24/marvel-five-in-one/
