“Susan, sit down, please. They’ll get here when they get here!”

But Susan kept pacing, “I know, Mom, but what if he’s not there? I don’t know what I’d do if he isn’t.”

Another woman took Susan’s hand. “Don’t worry about a thing, Susan; I’m sure everything will be alright.”

Susan sat down next to her. “Mary, how can you be so optimistic when he’s your son?”

Mary Bailey smiled. “It’s exactly because he is my son that I know everything will be alright. He was only missing in action, Susan, not killed in action.” Read more about A Wonderful Miracle

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to another Superhero Sunday. I am Ian Wilson, Fellowship and Fairydust’s comic book expert. This week we’re discussing one my favorite characters: Marvel Comics’ the Thing.

So when Reed Richards was in need of a pilot to help him win the Space Race, he looked no further than his best friend Ben.
