However, the shock of seeing Johnny falling to his death causes The Thing to change back to Ben Grimm, freeing him from control. He rescues Johnny, then gets help from Reed. A specially-designed helmet worn by Ben causes psychic feedback. Reed hopes The Puppet Master, knowing they have a defense against him, will never strike at them again.
