John Carpenter's 1982 remake of the 1950's classic.
Set in the winter of 1982 at a research station in Antarctica where a 12-man team finds an alien being thats been frozen in the ice for over 100,000 years. Unfrozen, the creature unleashed havoc and terror as it changes into the form of whatever being it consumes, allowing it to get, undetected into the presence of it's next victim.

It is in every classroom. The thing.
Strange and different. The thing.
It silently watches you.

I will give the most mainstream definition now. Most people know The Thing as the comic character. He is orange with blue jeans and has super strength. Originally he was a WWII vet,Ben Grimes, who joined his friend Reed Richards on a space mission. During that mission, he Richards, Richards's wife and brother-in-law were exposed to radiation in space. This caused them to get super powers. In 2005, Michael Chiklis played The Thing and in 2015, Jamie Bell played The Thing. The Thing is loved among Marvel heroes. He gets positive reception for his portrayal as an outsider. He was ranked #18 on IGN's top 100 heroes list. Successful solo series of him was released.
This is the definition of The Thing which defines the comic version.
