I think the hatred ray must also have some sort of intelligence-reducing capacity, because for the next couple of pages, it’s the Fantastic Four vs the Keystone Kops. It’s pretty funny in its exaggerated silliness, and these panels have probably the best visual gag of the lot.

It also highlights an element of Reed’s powers that hasn’t been played up as much so far, his elasticity.
