THE FABULOUS FF'S FIFTH MEMBER
All Crystal Issue!

Hello human. My name is Crystal. Unlike you, I am not human. In fact, I am SO not human that I am called "Inhuman." My claim to fame is that for a time, I was the official FIFTH member of the fabulous Fantastic Four! I filled in for Susan Storm after she gave birth to her first child, Franklin. I joined in Fantastic Four #81 by Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott, cover and first two pages pictured below.

Click the pages below for a bigger version. Don't miss the daring inter-racial kiss between myself and Johnny Storm on page two. Yes, I said inter-racial! Johnny, much as I loved him, was still human. And after all, am I not ... an INHUMAN?

BLACK BOLT AND COMPANY
Crystal's Crazy Relatives!

My first adventure with the fabulous Fantastic Four continued in FF #82 by Kirby/Sinnott. The FF accompanied me on a visit to my crazy family.

There's Black Bolt, who, if he says one word buildings fall down; Gorgon, who is forever throwing tantrums and stomping his feet; Triton, who's all green and scaly and shit; Karnak the Magnificent, a psychic karate expert, and Karnak's assistant Ed McMahon. Then there's... well ...

Reader, there's no easy way to say this. My fellow Inhuman, Maximus, is REALLY insane. I mean, look, it says MADMAN in huge red letters down there! Every other five minutes, he tries to take over the kingdom from Black Bolt, our silent but deadly ruler. Anyway, click the pages below for a bigger version.

Supermodel Kathy Ireland as
the Voice of Animated Crystal!

FF cartoons are now available on DVD. The second season has a three episodes guest-starring the Inhumans: Iona Morris as Medusa, Michael Dorn (Star Trek: TNG's Worf) as Gorgon, Clyde Kusatsu as Karnak, Rocky Carroll as Triton, and supermodel Kathy Ireland as me, Crystal!

These shows first aired October 14, 1995. In this story arc, Gorgon is searching for Medusa to return her to the mysterious Great Refuge. Johnny is forced to help her, but Gorgon captures her. In the next episode, the Fantastic Four discover his hideout and find the Inhumans. The Inhumans teleport back to the Great Refuge, but Johnny is teleported there too after jumping in after Crystal.

The rest of the team try to find him, while it is learned Black Bolt's evil brother, Maximus, has taken over. Like I said earlier, he does that alot. Yeah, whatever. Click the pic to see Kathy Ireland without a top on!
