    Synopsis for "The Way It Was!":
    With Reed's announcement that the Fantastic Four are going to split up, Ben has become morose. When his girlfriend Alicia Masters tries to cheer him up, he pulls out an old diary that he has kept over the years and goes over it with Alicia. He recounts the day that the Fantastic Four took their fateful rocket flight into space and were bombarded with the cosmic rays that gave them their powers. He then recounts how the team was on shaky ground from the start, with constant bickering between himself and the Human Torch. The first time the team suffered a break up, Ben recalls, was after their battle with the Miracle Man which ended with Johnny leaving the team. This led the young hero to the Bowery where he found and restored the memories of the Sub-Mariner. Ben recalls how this worked against them as Namor planned to wage war against humanity, but it was his sudden romantic interest in Sue that stopped him that time. When recalling that episode, Ben expresses his mixed feelings about Namor as they have since worked with and against him since then.
