Not just "worf Effect" but also everyone acting like complete unpleasant morons and just ebing unreasonable while the fan favorite is always right in the end.
    Honestly Hit and miss is best definition fo Slott work. And most of his hit are hardly memorable in the most dictionary definition of the word. (as without checking wikipedia i can't exactlty pinpoint what he has wrote not-memorable)

    That's a nice sentiment but different people might see a different number, depending on their forum settings. I don't recall if I tinkered with mine but it is set to display 20 posts per page so I see a page count of 75. But the thread did hit another milestone of over 100,000 views so congrats on that too!

    On the whole "playing favourites" thing. It's obvious that Ben is Slott's fave and that's ok but it's also obvious that Sue is the one he cares about the least. She hasn't done anything of note and is the only one with no story setup for her. She's just there.

    On the other hand maybe I should be thankful that he only does the bare minimum with her...

    It's 15 per page by default, and this is page 100 when it's set to that. We're now 10 posts away from 1500.

    Another new mini series by Neal Adams would be cool.

    Exactly! Right now I'm just glad Slott is using Sue as a supporting character. He has destroyed the FF cast's years of character development and made them bad copies of their former selves.

    The only way the FF can be saved is if a new writer takes the ongoing book and saves what can be saved.

    Franklin looks more like a 6 year old girl than usual with this art.

    It is interesting that we have the portrait heads of everyone, even Franklin, Valeria and Alicia - but not Torch's "Soulmate"

    Frank and Val are always there, it's only Alicia who's been added. It would get pretty crowded with her, Sky, Jo and Nikki on there!

    The reason Sky wasn't also added seems to be because she's not in this story.

    I think we all know Goodwill Hawkgirl is on her way out. The only question now is what comes next Johnny Storm has been in pretty much stasis for years he needs to grow.

    Lol, Slott's probably going to keep Sky around just to trigger people.

    Johnny was actually a grown man and acted like it in Hickman's run, he was even the leader of a society of aliens from the Negative Zone. Johnny's childish behaviour is just another of Slott's jabs at Hickman's work.

    It is annoying that his various 'doomed' romances seem to take center stage when a story is "about Johnny".

    I'm only interested in Johnny's relationships if they are one of the following, and "for good reason" (story/plot really fits with character and other developments)

    Johnny and Crystal: The gold standard

    Johnny and Frankie: (one, no more Nova, period, powers in relation to J's please) Almost Gold, Silver?

    Johnny and Namorita: It was pretty short duration, maybe dating mostly. What went wrong? Quite frankly, the irony of Sue and Namor's flirtations would be a constant but interesting part of their story. The classic fire and water thing.

    The argument with Skye could've been solved by just telling her Earth doesn't have that dumb soul crap and you just have to shoot your shot and hope nothing stupid, like your girl being allergic to New York's stank, doesn't happen.
