The Silent Partners in: "Monster in the Mix!"



I thought it was time to increase the ranks of the stealthiest team in the STF Universe - and without much discussion, Man-Thing has joined in! I mentioned in the comments to their last appearance that they would be adding a member next time out - did any of you guess correctly?

This is the third adventure of The Silent Partners - they last appeared in STF #1650, and made their debut in STF #764...

I remember the first time I saw Man-Thing. It was in an issue of The Incredible Hulk. I think both of them had been taken by The Collector. They both escaped. It was pretty cool to see Man-Thing just shift right through the ankle brace. He silently lumbered off into the sunset...

This would be a great group to take on Deadpool.

I guess his new motto is going to be...

"Those who feel fear scream loudly at the Man-Thing's touch!"

Aww- I was hoping it was Henry.

Maybe The Silent Partners could meet Pink Panther, Tom & Jerry, Henry, Wile E. Coyote & the Road Runner, and Oggy & the Cockroaches.

I totally would not have guessed Man-Thing as the addition, though now that it's happened he's a fitting addition.

I second Anon #1's suggestion -- this bunch versus Deadpool would be a hoot.

And given Cary's suggestion, I'd want to urge Black Bolt to stay well away from Man-Thing.

For Anon #2, technically Wile E. Coyote has spoken, but only when his foil is leporine rather than avian. (He even carries business cards: "Wile E. Coyote, Genius"!) And Road Runner isn't really silent either ("Meep meep!"). But Muzzle of the Road Rovers could potentially come in.

@Bob Greenwade: you ain't kidding. A burned Blackbolt would scream louder than Dinah Lance-Queen on her wedding night!

I had to laugh at your description, "and without much discussion..."

Great concept. First time I've seen The Silent Partners.
