Ben Grimm decided to join his friend Reed Richards, Sue Storm, her brother Johnny Storm and Victor von Doom in Reed's spacial project. When Ben got hit by the cosmic radiation that gave the rest of the team (Sue, Reed, Ben Grimm and Victor von Doom) super powers, Grimm became the stone-skinned orange Thing, and one of the Fantastic Four.
Powers and Abilities
Superhuman Strength: Ben has shown sufficient strength bend steel with his punches, to lift a firetruck (weighing about 100 tons), and when pushing himself, a large building structure (weighing about 1,000 tons) with Sue leveling it.
Superhuman Durability: Ben has easily survived being hit with bullets, a transport truck smashing into him on a bridge, falls from several stories high, Doctor Doom's punches and electric blasts.
Superhuman Speed: Ben can run faster than 30 mph.
- Superhuman Stamina: Ben can fully exert himself for far longer than a regular person can.
Can lift roughly 85 tons
- His large fingers make it hard to grasp small objects such as pins or rings. His large fingers and lack of skin friction also make it hard to pick up flat objects like paper and index cards or press small buttons such as cell phones or touch screens.
- His strength also makes it difficult for him to grab fragile objects without breaking them as he has less feedback to determine if the object is under stress. Even normal objects like phones, shot glasses, etc. could break under his grasp.
- Presumably his density and weight would make him incapable of remaining buoyant thus he would drown in a body of water.
Equipment: None known.
