head shotHistory:  (Fantastic Four I#8) - When the Puppet Master forced the trustee to Warden Williams of State Prison to steal the Warden's keys, Joe and Charlie stood guard, not thinking twice when the hypnotized trustee walked past them with the Warden's keys. After the trustee broke out the prisoners of State Prison, Joe and Charlie joined the other security guards as they tried to get one of the escaped prisoners, Rocco, to release the captured Warden inside.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Dick Ayers.

If the page numbers are different in your copy of the original Fantastic Four I#8, it is most likely because I was using a reprint from the Marvel Collector's Edition Vol. 1 CD-Rom containing ten issues of many of Marvel's Silver Age books. -Proto-Man
