The Thing makes his decision

The last time I checked, Fantastic Four #539 was supposed to be released last month, on the month of July. It was just recently released last August 02, along with Agents of Atlas, which I also bought along with Fantastic Four #539.
Agents of Atlas: In the late 1950’s, The U.S. Government let FBI Special Agent Jimmy Woo forge a team of unlikely heroes: Together they stormed the fortress of a criminal mastermind to rescue President Eisenhower, and the group disbanded soon after. Now almost 50 years later, an unauthorized S.H.I.E.L.D. mission goes down in flames--and from the ashes arise forces from the GOLDEN AGE OF MARVEL!
Some of the things I will have to say here are spoilers so if you wanna keep the suspense alive in you, don't read this yet. What happened in Fantastic Four #539 happened simultaneously with Amazing Spider-Man #534. So Iron Man's troops are about to transfer a group of hero captives to a temporary prison. Captain America, on the other hand, are planning on a diversion to release the captives. While the two sides are making all the plans against each other, the Puppet master, one of the Fantastic Four's former foes, are planning on taking advantage of the feud on both sides.
The Puppet Master uses radioactive clay to make puppets of people that he can then control, attaching them to strings and moving them as puppets, presumably he has some sort of psionic ability that enables him to do this. He is the step-father of Alicia Masters, a blind girl who holds an attraction to Thing. He once tried to take over the world but was thwarted in this effort by the Fantastic Four.
The Puppet master along with The Thinker who created a Cerebral Enhancement System which will boost Puppet Masters mental powers, are in a hidden nearby base where all the clay pieces are in position. What Spider-Man sensed in Amazing Spider-Man #534 was the Puppet Master. So along Yancy Street (Correct me if I'm wrong), the chaos began. The Puppet master, taking control of weak beings, creates disaster none of the teams are both ready for. One of the Anti-Registration act supporter died from a blast. It was one of The Thing's friends. So Ben Grimm made his decision not to join either side but to go out of the country and never comeback. So the question now is, is the Fantastic Four going to break-up?
