A classic Bronze Age splash drawn and inked by two legends!
Tigra has come to the Baxter Building in the middle of the night, rousing the Thing from his sleep. After explaining her origins, she tells the Thing that she has come to ask for help in obtaining the Null-Bands from the robot imposter of Tomazooma, which was obtained by Conklin Industries, a front for the criminal mastermind called The Cougar.
As she is in the process of filling him in, they are attacked and knocked out by agents hired by Conklin Industries. They awaken in the lab of the Cougar. The Cougar tries to use the Null-Bands to drain the Thing of his energy, but when his wife Sheila Conklin turns off the power, Thing and Tigra break free and counter-attack, forcing the Cougar to transform into his cat-man form. When the Cougar attempts to use a Positive-Charge Annihilator to destroy them, Shiela shoots him in the back, disgusted by the whole episode.
