…is a letter in Fantastic Four #20, published when he was fifteen.

Dear Stan and Jack,
I was really excited to pick up Fantastic Four #17, “In The Clutches of Doctor Doom!”  This epic story, as exciting and spectacular as it was, could have been even better. After the Fantastic Four defeat Doctor Doom’s robots by destroying the control discs and then jet off to Doom’s flying laboratory to rescue poor, blind Alicia Masters, I think you could have put in a lot more emotion if they had gotten there to find Alicia dead in a pool of blood.  Then Doom could have surprised them by ripping the head off of the Thing, extinguishing Johnny, and forcing poor Reed to watch as Doom gets his triumph by repeatedly violating Sue Storm with his hideously scarred Doom-penis.
Seriously.  I think there’s a market for this kind of fiction.  Can I get a No-Prize?

    I’m confused, what you link to doesn’t match what you wrote.
    Is there some insider comic joke I wouldn’t get?
