Synopsis for "The Rampage of Reed Richards!" Part 2 of 2:
Ben, Johnny, Sue, and the Impossible Man face their leader, Reed, whose body has just been taken over by the Molecule Man. Bolts of energy crackle from the Molecule Man's wand as he addresses them from the platform of the psi-amplifier. Their foolish loyalty, he sneers, prevents them from harming him, but nothing will prevent him from destroying them. Then, he says, he will use the psi-amplifier to take permanent possession of Reed's body. However, the Molecule Man fails to reckon with his host's powerful mind, which suddenly communicates with him from within the wand, distracting him. Quickly, Ben destroys the psi-amplifier by hurling a chunk of apparatus at it. Seeing his chance of returning to human form forever lost, the Molecule Man angrily imprisons them all in a cube of solid adamantium, the most indestructible substance known, to hold them while he formulates his plans. After several minutes of pounding, the Thing realizes that it is fruitless to try to batter his way out. Then Johnny asks his sister to erect a fire-resistant force field around herself, Ben, and the Impossible Man. When she does, Johnny turns up his flame to nova intensity, super-heating the air in the cube. The sudden increase in air pressure blows the entire cube into the ceiling and frees them. Although Johnny's teammates are shaken, the Impossible Man thinks the whole incident was great fun and wants to do it again. Sue asks Johnny to flame on and fly out over the city to catch sight of the Molecule Man, but Johnny's power is exhausted. Suddenly the Watcher materializes in the room with them. Realizing that he appears only in limes of great crisis, they try to persuade him to speak, but he remains mute. The teammates angrily leave their uninvited guest and go to search for the Molecule Man. Although he wants very much to help them, the Watcher refuses to break his oath any more.
