Bringing Frightful Back to the Frightful Four

I've done a fair amount of hunting for a "rogues' gallery" version of the original Frightful Four as pencilled by Jack Kirby, but I don't recall ever seeing one in print (though a later FF annual included a portrait by another artist). The closest I've come to a pic that might make for a decent portrait was this group shot from Fantastic Four #94:

Unfortunately, the images are blocked by the other FF, and the Sandman is turned away (and he's also not wearing his original duds). So I ended up putting together some Kirby poses of the individual members, and making my own group portrait.

How did I do?

And isn't it time these four got back into harness?

Steve, it's appreciated, thanks very much.

Hiya, Sam--please, we're trying to put the "frightful" back into this group. Let's not make them a laughingstock! :)

It certainly is time that the original Frightful Four reunite and be made more powerful than ever! If Marvel doesn't want to make Medusa evil again, all they have to do is to have the Fantastic Four fight the original Frightful Four in an Ultimate Universe setting. Medusa was at her best when was allied with the Wizard and his pals. It is too bad that she ever left the dark side.
