This publication features a number of stories, including an 8-page Fantastic Four story which is interspersed with an 8-page Thunderbolts story on pages 9 through 25. The Fantastic Four and Thunderbolt stories were created by completely separate creative teams and are indexed here as separate stories, but many sources group these two as a single story.
