The Thing had lesser popularity, so the analogous Marvel Two-in-One series didn't last as long. I think better storytelling may have added some longevity for that title.

Okay, MTU lasted 150 issues. Fine, but it's no shame that Ben's 2-in-1 'only' lasted a mere 100 issues. And It was only cancelled to make way for Ben's solo title.
