Love this Steve Gerber script! He services several characters (Thing, Namorita, Namor, Wundarr) and plays them off each other very well. All while telling a story/backstory. This is what all Marvel Comics should be like. 9/10

  The team up and two and one formats are leaving a lot to be desired. Subby and Namorita go through all that trouble to find Wundarr, only to leave him abandoned with the thing after they find him? Very lame, but not nearly as bad at Torch leaving Spiderman to save the world in Marvel Team up because he didn't want to face his ex-girl friend.

  I thought the art was pretty good. Wundarr is an obvious parody of Superman, pretty funny how his father turned out to be wrong about their home planet's imminent destruction.

  I laughed at the parody of Superman being an imbecile.

  Ooooh, such an advanced and deadly robot... that gets destroyed in about 20 seconds.
Is it just me or has Namorita gone through puberty between the last issue of Subby and this? Or is it just the power of the slave-Leia costume?

  It's awesome to see Gerber's satire talents used in a conventional superhero story. Wundarr is a great parody of Superman, and the "we kill for tranquility" aliens are nicely done. These stories have been so much more interesting than Marvel Team-Up.

  So... Nita is supposed to have the strength "of a Submariner", but she can't deal with two underpowered dudes? Yeah...

  I get a sense that Gerber would be even funnier with less editorial oversight.

  Nita's outfit reminded me of Leia's slave outfit from Star Wars.

  Fun issue. It was kind of cool to see Thing and Sub-Mariner on the same side for once. I'm getting a kick out of Wundarr's appearances; not just because of the blatantly obvious Superman parody he is, but his people's names sound like E. Nelson Bridwell came up with them.

Interesting to see Nita back from her Star Wars cosplay. The movie must've debuted 3 years earlier in the Marvel Universe than our world.

I do see a difference in the two team-up mags. Whereas Marvel Team-Up is just used as a Spider-Man showcase, Two-in-One is telling fairly coherent stories two issues in. I can't help but wonder if Namor and Nita leaving Wundarr with the Thing instead of taking him with them is Gerber's idea of a sardonic twist, given that the Atlanteans were so concerned about the man-child, even going so far as Namor saying that Wundarr was under his protection.

3 stars.

  I'm glad they've kept going with Wundarr, although I don't know that the Thing is the person I'd choose to have raise him.
