Johnny Storm hits the town, heading to the stupefying Studio Infinity where he happens to meet the Dazzler. Back at the Baxter Building, H.E.R.B.I.E. launches a surprise attack on the Invisible Girl, defeating her and proceeding to ambush Mr. Fantastic and the Thing. The robot reveals that he has actually been taken over by the evil Dr. Sun who is bent on the destruction of the team. H.E.R.B.I.E. defeats the Thing and Mr. Fantastic sends up the Fantastic Four signal, interrupting Johnny Storm’s evening with the Dazzler as he rushes back to the Baxter Building. Mr. Fantastic manages to isolate Dr. Sun in the circuitry of the Baxter Building’s computer system, briefly freeing H.E.R.B.I.E. of his control, but the loyal robot sacrifices himself and destroys Dr. Sun in order to protect the team.
