Im 1995er Kevin Smith-Film „Mallrats“ fragte einer der Charaktere Stan Lee, ob der Penis von Ben „The Thing“ Grimm ebenfalls aus orangefarbenem Fels besteht. Damals verweigerte Lee die Antwort, welche er jetzt in einem Interview in der Vanity Fair gegeben hat und dabei auch noch offensichtliche Einblicke in das Sexleben von Mr. Fantastic und Sue Richards gewährte. Ihr wisst schon… a great asset in many areas.
In the Kevin Smith movie Mallrats, Jason Lee asked you a question that has crossed every serious comic fan’s mind at least once in his life. You dismissed it at the time, calling it a “superhero secret.” Are you finally ready to answer Lee’s question?
“Is the Thing’s dork made out of orange rock like the rest of his body?”
I never gave it a thought. I guess common sense would say it was made of orange rock too, but I always thought it was more interesting to think about Reed Richards. As you know, he had the ability to stretch, and sexually, that would seem to be a great asset in many areas.
