One of the reasons the The Thing is such a great character is the fact that you can insert him into any type of story. One issue can be full of dark, psychological topics and serious business, ans then the next issue he's dealing with a team of talking animals. I've always gotten a kick out of animal sidekicks to superheroes, being a pet lover myself. It's kind of cool to see things like the Krypto animated series and Marvel's Pet Avengers... these concepts can seem hokey but I think they serve as a great entry point for younger readers to the world of comics.
