In my previous post, you had a front row seat to the rip-roaring "Clobberin' Time" side of The Thing, the Fantastic Four's resident rock-encrusted curmudgeon. However, there's another side to Ben Grimm you may not be quite as familiar with.
Raised as a streetwise scrapper on New York's Lower East Side, Ben Grimm's tough-guy exterior became a literal reality following his cosmic accident. Ironically, Ben's rocky outer shell became the catalyst for a softer side to emerge, as the love of his Fantastic Four "family" and girlfriend Alicia gradually smoothed his jagged outlook.
Adding to Ben's joy was the arrival of Reed and Sue's baby boy, born in Fantastic Four Annual #6 (1968). Soon afterward in Fantastic Four #94 (1969), the proud parents bring the baby home to the Baxter Building. Let's join them as they announce what they've decided to name their son, a special day for Ben Grimm as well as an unforgettable scene for the Highlight Reel.
