The Greatest Team-up of all TIME!
In Fantastic Four #19 (October 1963) by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers, the FF traveled back to ancient Egypt to meet the villainous Rama Tut. Then, almost two decades later, in Doctor Strange #53 (June 1982), Doc ALSO traveled back in time -- to the very same place and era! The FF didn't see Doc's astral form, but Doc saw the FF, as recreated by Marshall Rogers and Terry Austin (story by Roger Stern). Reader, step into Dr. Doom's time machine, and we're off to ancient Egypt with the fabulous Fantastic Four and the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange!
