Clumsy storytelling. Jumps over, and ignores, important stuff. Just to get the story told. Result is annoying. 4/10

  -If the key will only work with Ben's brain waves, why not just hang it on the wall?
-The Cougar looks like Leonard Nimoy--Gastastic!
-More profound observations about humanity--Yuck!

  Even in a mediocre, contrived story like this, I could read the Thing and Tigra all day long. Their interaction is a lot of fun.

  Someone breaks into your room and Ben's first thought is to go for a workout?

  So.. the rule is Tigra has to be laying or standing as seductively as possible at all times right?

I'm Ok with this.

  Mr Grimm... Do you mind if I call you Ben? So Ben, a half naked woman creeps into your bedroom in the middle of the night, and you claim that it is shades of your Aunt Petunia. Ben, I feel there is more to that story that you may wish to share with a professional.
It's quite impressive that they were able to make Tigra and Thing both so useless in this issue that they needed to be saved by a human with a gun. I get that you need to do some stuff to make it seem more plausible that you need two heroes to fight some lone random cat-person, but maybe that means you just need a stronger villain, or at least more of them.

  Have to agree with @skalchemist on this one: The Thing/Tigra interactions were about all this one had going for it. Fairly weak plot, weak cookie-cutter type villain, and the Cougar never made a pass at any college-age guys. Oh wait....

2 stars. Not horrible, but it may help to consign this one to the litter box and make sure it's all covered up!
