How Did the Fantastic Four ‘Bust’ Christmas’ Most Famous Ghost?

Today, we look at an adorable

It’s our yearly Comics Should Be Good Advent Calendar! Every day until Christmas Eve, you can click on the current day’s Advent Calendar post and it will show the Advent Calendar with the door for that given day opened and you can see what the “treat” for that day will be! You can click here to see the previous Advent Calendar entries. This year, the theme is a Very Dope 90s Christmas! Each day will be a Christmas comic book story from the 1990s, possibly ones that have a specific 1990s bent to it (depends on whether I can come up with 24 of them).

This year’s Advent Calendar, of Grunge Santa Claus giving out 90s present, like a Tamagotchi, while posing with four superheroes with the most-90s costumes around, is by Nick Perks.

And now, Day 16 will be opened (once opened, the door will feature a panel from the featured story)…

Today, we look at “Christmas Coda” from Marvel 1991 Holiday Special by Walter Simonson, Arthur Adams and Al Milgrom.

The Christmas adventure opens up with Franklin and Sue Richards looking for a present for Reed Richards, but Franklin was distracted by a Christmas ornament that he wanted (and his mother bought him)…

A distracted Franklin then discovers a ghost who is all chained up and fading out of existence…

Franklin then went to go find a key, but had to give up all of his money PLUS the ornament to get a key….

He then freed the ghost with the key….

On Christmas, when the Fantastic Four were all opening presents, we learn that that ghost was, in fact, Jacob Marley, from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol…
