There are a lot of cool headquarters in comics Batman has his cave, Superman has his fortress and Doctor Strange has his Sanctum Sanctorum. Still there was always something I really liked about the Fantastic Four's Baxter Building, mainly because it has been effectively used as a plot point in some of the FF's best stories. Whether it was launched into outer space, used as a gateway to the negative zone, or being crashed by super villains, it has always been like another character. I think my favorite tale was during John Byrne's run, where The Trapster is thwarted in his invasion attempt solely by the Building's security system - great stuff!
