    So Xavin wasn't the prisoner. That's really sad.

    Onome with a big gun. It was something I didn't know I wanted, but I'm glad we got it.

    Valeria and Bentley, expectedly, had a thing because Alex mentioned how Bentley wouldn't be annoying since the two would flirt.

    The Maker is the Maker without an enlarged head. I don't know how Alex mistook him for Reed with that massive scar, lack of a beard, and lack of fatherhood stress lines.

    Overall, I liked this. This is the over-the-top bullshit science I sign up for when reading something related to the Fantastic Four.

    Worth the cover price just to see Warbird in prison, where her creepy stalker ass belongs. Two thumbs up, five stars.

    More seriously, I enjoyed the sheer zany insanity of the whole thing. Not sure if this is going to be a book I buy in singles or tradewait on, but I'll be keeping up with it one way or another.

    Unfortunately I don't think this is Aaron's Warbird.
    The one affiliated with the X-men was named Ava'Dara, this one was called At'li.
    Aaron's Warbird had white hair/feathers, this one has brown.
    And based on the preview art from the interview Snoop Dogg linked to last page, this one can grow wings.

    Also I've seen speculation that the girl Julie went into the prison to rescue is Rebecca "Rikki" Barnes (also known as Nomad) since she reacted to the mention of the Avengers Academy and Spider-Girl/Araña

    I really want to like this book, but I can't get past the art.

    Up until she said her name, I thought it was Cammi. Which would have made much more sense from the space prison point of view.

    If it is Rikki, I suppose that fits with her being from Franklin's alt. Earth, which the FF at least know about from Robinson's run. I assume she'll also become Julie's new love interest, just because everyone else is too young, and the book will need some sort of relationship drama.

    Didn't Rikki die during Onslaught Unleashed or am I thinking of another person?

    She did, but based on what Rebecca said in this issue she may have just been tossed out into the multiverse, travelling different realities.

    And somehow she wound up back at 616

    I could see that... except I also notice the 'lightning bolt' scars on her cheek -- reminiscent of the Molecule Man. While I suspect she MAY be a relation (maybe an unknown child with Volcana) - but she's at the very least been 'infused' with some bit of his power.

    Whitley mentioned that he was having a upcoming comic involving Onslaught. Today, he related that with the Maker. That leaves no doubts that this is Rikki Barnes!

    She did, but the by the end is revealed that Steve is having dreams, that could be interpreted as visions, about Onsluaght, heavily implying that it's still out there, and Rikki too by proxy.

    Also, I am completely pro-Julie's fresh cut. And Uncle Yondu.

    As for the art "error", where all four Moloids have bodies, clearly the team at some point developed a cybernetic body for Turg to occupy, but he doesn't like it and only occasionally uses it to make his friends feel that their work was not wasted. But not for long, as he loves the freedom of flight.

    The last Future Foundation with that tie-in to FF with that long story about the mad Celestials and all the sub-plots was EPIC!! My prediction, like with JOM the new series will not be anywhere close to the level of the last run.
    It's insane that JOM, FFoundation, Avengers and all the great specials were coming out so close to one another. Where is stuff like that now?

    A buff, brunette girl whose name is Rebecca and she reacted at the name Spider-Girl whose possessions were taken from her in order to leave her appearance inconspicuous... yes, it's Rikki.
