    Seriously, aging is pretty slow from 30s to 40s, I wouldn't sweat it. In contrast, a kid at 12 vs 16 looks like 20+ years of growth. There's nothing linear about it.
    And even beyond the normal difference between adult aging and kids growing up, I guess Reed's skin is going to keep its elasticity better than most, and perhaps Sue can make just wrinkles invisible... ;-)

    Nice codenames. Franklin's codename Powerhouse is probably Alex's idea, as he was called that in New Warriors (he had all of the Power Pack's powers at the time). And Val is Brainstorm, an obvious reference to her intellect and Sue's maiden name.
    I instantly thought of the character Powerhouse from The Man Called Nova. Those characters wound up in a memorable Fantastic Four storyline, with Galactus battling the Sphinx.

    Me too, and I can think of one poster at least that won't be happy about that. But Val....I just can't get used to her looking more like a young woman yet.

    It would be funny to see him fumbling and losing his composure because he knows he CAN'T act all sketchy, and he's is overcome with modesty around her.
    I think it's too bad that the Hood/Demon messed up Victor's face again. Can you imagine Reed and Sue having to deal with Val having a crush on her Uncle Doom. That is probably too messed up for a PG comic.

    I dunno, they're super-powered and super-smart teenagers now. They might need more supervising .

    Wonder how Franklin's going to react to Kobik taking his job as the young reality warper who messes things up, Heroes Reborn for Franklin and Secret Empire for Kobik.

    I love pointing out slight differences we have in opinion as I know we both love the FF. But you are spot on with this observation.

    I like it. To be honest seeing Ribic every month as the main FF artist would be a dream come true, of course. But us it even possible? I mean such work need time. And so far I'm really pleased by the art by Sara Pichelli. The kittens in the first issue were amazing! And Alicia. And that last page too...

    Good for you. I hope you had a great time.

    Yeah, I was the second post was a bit dubious. But the part about Sue being aware of fanfic about herself and Namor reminded me of some fanfic I've stumbled across that would raise your eyebrows.

    I had some good time... but the long vacations come with the job you know and they were quite casual, at home, with nothing exotic. I just guess that I'm not a poster in the summer ...
