My Lord, man... You really captured the essence of the character in this. The fact that the Thing has always been the superhero with the saddest circumstances is what makes him the only real human character in the F4; you brought that out here. Very nice.
Poor ole' Thing, just like the big critter in the 2nd Neverending Story movie, when he was sad because he hadn't been able to hold onto his little friend, and his friend had been sucked away by.... what was it? 1st movie, it was the Darkness, I think, which was caused by people losing belief in imagination or something; 2nd one, it was the Emptiness that was destroying the Fantasy world (name...name...name... wossname). 3rd one, I think it was the Nasty Nasties or something, who were this group of bullies at Sebastians new school, who nicked his magic book.... blahblahblah, I talk too much. Picture much good, me like lots; there we go!
