Notorious tormentors of Ben Grimm, the Yancy Street Gang usually pulls innocuous pranks on Grimm. Despite their acrimonious relationship, the gang does not want anyone outside of Yancy Street imperiling the Thing or the Fantastic Four. Although Grimm has often threatened the gang with deadly force, their relationship normally involves good natured and light hearted banter and comedy.
