9. THE HULK VS. THE THING IN FANTASTIC FOUR #25 (1964)

Who would win in a fight: an eight-foot-tall green engine of destruction capable of reducing an entire city to rubble in mere minutes or a walking, talking pile of rocks that spends his time whining about his grotesque appearance like a fat girl before prom?

While the Thing is certainly the most powerful member of the Fantastic Four, his encounters with the Hulk usually wind up pretty one sided. And that is pretty much how it went down during their most popular encounter in Fantastic Four #25.

It was evident early on in the fight that the Thing was clearly no match for the Hulk. But what this fight lacked in drama it made up for in incredible feats of strength by the Hulk and pure destruction, all portrayed with terrific art by the great Jack Kirby. This is one of the best examples of the over-the-top comic book action that made Marvel the premiere publisher during the '60s.
