 The Mysterious MOLECULE MAN! 

1st Appearance "MOLECULE MAN" (Owen Reece)
After examining an asteroid with proof of organic life in space, the Fantastic Four investigate a strange fireball that has appeared in the streets. Sucked into it, they find it's a device belonging to the Watcher. Inside the Watcher tells the Fantastic Four of a man who was exposed to a nuclear accident which transformed him into the Molecule Man. Warning of the potential danger of the Molecule Man's molecule altering abilities, the Watcher sends out the FF to stop him.
In their initial conflict, the FF seem unable to defeat him and each attempt to stop the Molecule Man is met with failure. Fed up of the FF's interference, the Molecule Man erects a glass dome around Manhattan and demands that the people of the city help him capture the FF.
Reed eventually realizes that the Molecule Man's powers don't seem to have any effect on organic material and so they lay a trap in which they pose as statues in Alicia's apartment while Alicia alerts the Molecule Man of their location. When the Molecule Man's powers fail to effect the FF, they are able to knock his magic wand -- the focal point of his power -- out of his hands and keep it away from him long enough for the Watcher to arrive and take the Molecule Man away.
