THING: PROJECT PEGASUS (27 Mar 2018)
Marvel Comics
Excerpt:

Thing: Project Pegasus is a repackaging of a similarly titled collection form 2010 that includes MTIO #42-43, 53-58 and Avengers #236-237. Writer Ralph Macchio clearly had fun poking around the lesser known corners of the mythos, playing with characters no one else was paying attention to and his glee can be found throughout the pages. He’s aided and abetted in many of these stories co-written by Mark Gruenwald. It doesn’t hurt that the art is pretty stellar and consistent (rare for that era) from the hands of Sal Buscema, Alfredo Alcala, and Sam Grainger then followed by John Byrne and Joe Sinnott, who are, in turn, followed by George Pérez and the late, unforgotten Gene Day.

Early on in the series, the Thing became a Big Brother to Wundarr, first introduced in the Man-Thing series running in Fear. Rocketed to Earth from the seemingly doomed planet Dakkam, he possessed powers and abilities far beyond mortal men. He just needed someone to show him how to function on a world of humans and the Thing took him on. When Wundarr was captured by the newly opened Project Pegasus (Potential Energy Group/Alternate Sources/United States), it was to see if his powers could unlock the energies of the Cosmic Cube. The Thing tries to rescue him but is stopped by Captain America before they team up to retrieve the Cube, which had been stolen by Victorius of the Cult of Entropy.
