    I would chalk this up to a blunted supporting cast. We don't see the FF interact much with anyone outside the Fantastic Four and the kids. Occasionally, we'll have Wyatt, Alicia, and Johnny's...

    This is so in Strange's favor that it's not funny. Strange regularly goes up against demons who control fears and manipulate the mind. The giant space bug isn't going to be any different than, per...

    Empyre: FF #0 is just like this run. It's pathetic. Nothing of interest happened. No character building happened. The only aspect of world building could have been given one line last issue and would...

    I swear you can give this man something as wacky as Not Brand Echh and he will find a way to suck the life out of a book. Even Selene would be impressed.

    Alien and Predator vs. the Dire Wraiths

    Evil and Evil vs. Evil

    Make it happen, Marvel! You still own the Dire Wraiths, sorta, it's complicated.

    It's a reference to how the artist in FF always draws Franklin as a whitewashed Sam Alexander as shown here:

    Call me cynical, call me overtly pessimistic, but I would hate to see what Slott brings further to the table since his run has been nothing but failure in my eyes:

    Cosmic entity? Fail x2

    Because nothing challenges the characters on a personal level at all. It's not good. What makes Reed and Doom good foils is that Reed and Doom are geniuses. Reed overcompensates for his mistakes, see...

    The FF did pioneer a ton of concepts, but they were all expanded upon by later writers:

    Black Panther debuted in Fantastic Four #52.
    The Kree and Skrulls debuted in Fantastic Four #65 and...

    Do you know what the Fantastic Four need? They need a reinvigorated rogues gallery. We seriously cannot keep cycling through Doom, cosmic entity, alien, and Earth threat. It's gotten old since no...

    OMD contains a scene where an alternate version of Peter whines about how he can't be a hero and how nerds are losers. This is a comic book about men and women in spandex fighting villains. Really?

    Really, Evolution only has steps because we have the power of hindsight. We know the Great War happened in history class. How it unfolded can easily be seen in steps even though the people at the...

    I was looking for people who are a bit older. I'm sorry, but I find my idea mixed with Moon Girl or any genius under the age of 13 with a teenager to be outright malice on any parent's part. Curse...

    Imperfect parenting. Forget the superhero stuff and go back to what made the FF relatable in the first place. Superhumans had very human flaws. Have Sue make some common parental blunders like...

    If we're going to deal with this mutant as the next level of evolution nonsense, then at least give me the pleasure of seeing mutant society collapse by their own hands. I want to see a storyline,...

    If I was writing this, I would basically shape Wakandan culture off of Abyssinia. Seriously, Wakanda had a ton of similarities to Abyssinia, especially in Wakanda's earlier days.

    The idea that mutants are superior to humans is an idea I wish would just outright crawl in a ditch and die. Let's put aside the comic book evolution where everything is simply fated to escalate...

    The reason why she doesn't have any relatable flaws, besides the obvious lack of focus, is that the writers seem to be stuck in the shadow of Sue's early days where she was more or less the damsel in...

    If Val dies, can she come back colder and less feeling? I don't appreciate the current direction of the character.

    Marvel has killed lots of children before. The ones that come to mind are:

    Billy Connors - later revived sorta

    Gert - later revived

    Cassie Lang - later revived

    Relax, we all know that any death will be pure clickbait, shock value.

    Still, this run has tested my patience with Slott. He should have focused on the four characters we did not get to see for...

    Even if this scenario happened, he can probably resurrect her if she died. Then we'll get a long rant about how his powers are fading and how he won't be special anymore. Slott would take a tender...

    Zub and Ewing managed to salvage the character for me and for many others. Bendis' run felt so decompressed that there was no damn tension in it at all. I don't even mind not having a legacy...
