Between the break in posting and the huge amount of content from Fantastic Four #12, it’s been quite a while since we saw an appearance from my favourite trope: Inexplicable usage of asbestos. Thankfully, today’s panel is an absolute classic.

Taking a leaf (and a visual) from Paste Pot Pete’s book, ZANTE extinguishes Johnny’s flame with a jet of liquid asbestos. Ignoring the fact that asbestos is a fibrous substance and liquidising it would be exceedingly difficult, if not impossible.

Ah, my favourite villain and my favourite trope. Life is good!

Check out our coverage of Strange Tales #106 in our tenth episode: Hulk? Smash!
