Ben after his transformation

Benjamin J. Grimm, dubbed The Thing, was a security guard at the Baxter Building until Reed Richards and Franklin Storm's teleportation project went wrong, releasing radiation from the N-Zone. Ben was mutated by the radiation, and given orange, rock-covered skin as well as superhuman strength. With Reed, Susan Storm, and Johnny Storm, he was a member of the Fantastic Four, and fought the evil villains Doom and later on Mole Man.
