(Hostess Twinkies ad "A Passion For Gold") - Mr. Fantastic found himself battling Goldigger. When Goldigger fired upon him, Mr. Fantastic bounced the projectiles back at his auric adversary, but Goldigger turned intangible and let the projectiles pass harmlessly through him. At an impasse, Richards gave Goldigger Hostess Twinkies, a treat that the gilded villain gladly turned solid to eat. Mr. Fantastic then used his own arm to ensnare Goldigger.



Comments: Created by an unknown writer and an unknown artist.

Goldigger was mentioned in the Appendix to the Fantastic Four Encyclopedia.

You can get the whole story, and some clever commentary from Seanbaby's The Hostess Page. It might not meet with the Comics Code Authority's approval, so kids, ask your parents before checking that out!
