FANTASTIC FOUR ROAST (1982) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Fantastic Four Roast #1
"When Titans Chuckle!," a send-up by Fred Hembeck to celebrate the Fantastic Four's 20th anniversary. "The World's Silliest Comic Magazine!" is reminiscent of Marvel's Not Brand Echh! and Crazy titles, featuring Forbush-Man. But here, just about every artist in the Marvel Bullpen joins Hembeck and editor Jim Shooter in sending up the FF. Guest-stars abound but the first presenter is Spider-Man, who hams it up with his frequent crime-fighting partner the Human Torch. Captain America takes the podium, followed by Iron Man and the Sub-Mariner.

The Hulk waxes poetic about his old sparring partners and Power Man and Iron Fist do more quarreling than quipping. The Avengers assemble to tip their hats to the companion super-hero team. And even the Watcher and the Silver Surfer get into the act. Daredevil, the X-Men and Doctor Strange round out the roasters. But there's one last guest to be heard from; Dr. Doom! But it's not the Latverian tyrant who is desperately trying to poison and/or trap the FF during their moment of celebration. No, the true villain of the piece turns out to be none other than ...aww, that would be telling!
