    I love both Russell and the FF, but this is disappointing to me. It's an awkward format where each issue covers ten years where we're used to time passing more slowly for these characters. ...

    Occasionally rush hour subway cars were like that, particularly when one hadn't been by for a while. The most crowded I've even experienced were the subways cars at Kenmore in Boston after a Red Sox...

    FF 683 is getting a lot of crap it doesn't deserve. Granted, it's far from perfect, but it serves a couple of purposes. It's a light-hearted, almost JLIesque story bringing the team into a...

    There are differing opinions as to what the actual definition of "widely accepted, acclaimed, and successful" really is.

    And there's a question. Are we talking about a character, or a franchise overall? If we're talking about a single character, then Power Rangers and Doctor Who don't really fit as none of them...

    Yeah, it was used there. Hickman used it once when Ben was first given the ability. Fraction used it since his arc took an entire year. Now Slott has used it.

    Englehart Humperdinck 'cuz jumping a drawbridge, hanging out of an open door, and firing a gun is pretty cool.

    Ben's had a Bar Mitzvah like ceremony celebrating 13 years since his turning into the Thing. As to actual character time passing, I think Reed and Doom are the only ones who should keep their aging...

    Reed and Ben were WW2 vets originally. A rocket flight in the early sixties would have put them close to 40 at that time. But the FF and actual ages have always had a lot of wiggle room and...

    It's a very interesting direction to take with the "family" aspect of the FF and their supporting characters and villains.

    I think a lot of the criticism comes from our (USA) claims of freedom. Those other nations make no such claims of freedom and openness.

    We're off on a tangent from the thought of Sue looking younger than Reed in a movie. But this observation is one I think applies to all of the four. Ben doesn't age as long as he's in Thing state....

    I may have missed a detail but I am under the impression that that will be tied into the Reckoning War somehow.



    And that's a good point with an FF movie series (hopeful, ain't I?). Sue is...
