Synopsis for "At the Mercy of Torgo!"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Fantastic Four #93

Torgo punches Thing

As Reed, Johnny, and Crystal race to the planet where Thing has been taken prisoner, Thing enters the arena to battle Torgo. As the battle rages on, both combatants seem equally matched until weapons are brought into the event.

Meanwhile, Reed and the others arrive on the planet Kral and disguise themselves as locals, commandeering a vehicle. At that moment, Torgo has won the match, and the spectators are demanding that Torgo kill the Thing. Finding no honor in murdering such a worthy opponent, Torgo refuses. At that moment Reed and the others arrive to save Ben and free the other captives. Crystal shatters the planet-destroying device.

Free from their enslavers, the slaves revolt and attack their masters. The FF then manage to escape in the ensuing chaos and escape the planet in their ship, Ben remembering Torgo as a true friend.
