Excerpts

BELOW: Monsters regarded Mole Man as their god: The Mole Man tells the Fantastic Four that he was once a respected scientist, but everybody ridiculed him for his belief in the existence of Monster Island. Once he actually found the island, he discovered numerous strange and largely mindless creatures. He explained that they came to regard him as their god.
