Synopsis for "Of Monsters and Men!"
When the wife of the late F. A. Schist, Vivian and her daughter Caroline travel to the site of his failed construction site to try and learn of his fate, they along with the Citrusville sheriff are attacked by the Man-Thing. Fleeing, Vivian believes that the Man-Thing had something to do with her husbands disappearance and vows to have the creature captured. She hires a team to capture the beast, led by Dane Gavin, they succeed in capturing the Man-Thing in an electrified sphere that incapacitates the muck-monster. They then decide to put it on display in New York as part of an exhibit.
There, the muck-monster breaks loose, and not even the intervention of Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic Four is able to stop the creatures rampage. When they find that the Man-Thing is dieing because it has been taken out of it's natural habitat, Caroline -- realizing that the Man-Thing is no killer -- convinces her mother to have the muck-monster returned to it's home. Returning it to the Florida, Everglades, Dane decides that he will unlock the secrets of the muck-monster, but will do so in it's natural habitat.
