History:
(Fantastic Four I Annual#13) - While mopping a floor, cleaning lady Agnes was kidnapped by the Mole Man's Moloid subterraneans. Taken to Mole Man's underground lair, Agnes remained among other kidnapped outcasts (as well as blind sculptress Alicia Masters), whom the Mole Man promised a world where they would be accepted, until the Fantastic Four arrived to rescue Alicia Masters. Recognizing the heroes, Agnes was told who they were just in time for the Fantastic Four to attack, unaware that the Mole Man merely wanted to provide acceptance and beauty to those captured. Upon realizing the Mole Man's intentions, the Fantastic Four stopped fighting and provided safe passage back to the surface for those wishing to return to their lives, though Agnes appeared to remain behind with the Mole Man and others.

Comments: Created by Bill Mantlo, Sal Buscema and Joe Sinnott.

    It wasn't 100% clear that Agnes stayed behind with the Mole Man or if she ultimately accompanied the Fantastic Four back to the surface. On the final page of Fantastic Four I Annual#13, we see several kidnapped people heading back up towards the surface but the one who resembles Agnes (can't be sure it's sure due to the shadowy coloring of the issue) is standing next to the FF and Mole Man, either because she decided to stay with the Mole Man or because she just had not yet starting heading towards the surface. Since Mole Man did say a few of the people had decided to stay, I'm thinking Agnes may have stayed behind with Mole Man.
