It's time to face facts, true believers – the '90s were awesome. The pouches were plentiful, the costumes were impractical, and Marvel Universe dentists made a fortune correcting damages caused by perpetually gritted teeth. Thanks to the power of nostalgia, though, what would once be considered extremely embarrassing can now be called extremely awesome!
With that in mind, we've pulled a Marvel comic from the not-so-modern era and broken it down, one righteous fact at a time! This week we're singling out FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) #375 by Tom DeFalco and Paul Ryan. Here's "It's Always Darkest Before the… DOOM!" by the numbers!
12 pouches on Mr. Fantastic’s costume, 3 jazzercise leotards posing as super hero costumes
12 spikes on Doom’s costume, but still nothing compared to Ghost Rider
4 fantastic laser guns
3 shout-outs to other Marvel characters
2 very '90's toys
Shockingly, only 1 question asked about the new jackets and guns
