Freebase

  1. Thing

    The Thing is a fictional character, a superhero that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is a founding member of the Fantastic Four. His trademark orange rocky appearance, sense of humor, blue eyes, and his famous battle cry, "It's clobberin' time!", makes him a very recognizable comic book character. The Thing's speech patterns are loosely based on those of Jimmy Durante. Michael Chiklis portrayed The Thing in the 2005 film Fantastic Four, and its 2007 sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. In 2011, IGN ranked the Thing 18th in the Top 100 Comic Book Heroes.
