Here's a great shot of the High Evolutionary livid at the theft of his greatest creation.

Finally we are shown just how a planet is stolen.

At this point, Starhawk changes back to the male half.

Our heroes break into the planet stealer ship and these thieves are gigantic. I love what happens next.

The High Evolutionary increases in size to confront an alien

Increasing stature is NOT an issue with th High Evolutionary. I love it. The Thing is my favorite Marvel hero (together with the Beast) but Ben looks like an action figure in the panel above.
