    Fantastic Four #36 preview, double-page spread. So Franklin sometimes calls his uncle only by his first name, that's the thing with teen Franklin now?

    That's how it is in my family...I haven't called aunts or uncles that since I was a teenager.

    I can believe Franklin not using the Uncle when referring to Johnny. A little too familiar maybe, but there's still angsty rebellion in that kid. As for his idea, it didn't sound overly selfish to me as two people are being helped and not just Franklin. Sue's overreacting as it's her brother needing curing and her son's problem consists of giving an emotional teenage boy the power to create universes again. I actually kind of like seeing Franklin and family go through this as he appears to be slowly moved to the backburner without powers or a super-brain.
    Why yes, I do enjoy hearing myself talk. it is very kind of you to notice>

    I find myself doing that when there's more than one uncle. IIRC Franklin also call Ben "uncle" even though Ben's not related by blood.

    VAL saying teenagers are the worst? Well, that certainly proves she isn't one herself, doesn't it?

    Oh right... didn't her birth have a special quirk? IE she's a re-incarnation of an alternate future Valeria? IIRC 616 Valeria is actually dead. Does she remember being Marvel Girl?

    If she DOEs.... hmmm that could get interesting.....

    If she did it would certainly explain how she could talk like an adult aged only three!

    I like that picture of Valeria...is that a trading card or something?

    I don't think we've seen any indication that Valeria Richards has any of Valeria Von Doom's memories but we've definitely seen a connection between Val and her "Uncle Doom" that remains even as she grows older.




    Valeria's history is pretty complicated. It goes all the way back to the baby Sue lost back in John Byrne's Fantastic Four #267.

    Sue has always had difficulties when giving birth due the exposure to cosmic rays back in that fateful rocket trip. Sue's first child Franklin had a perilous birth. In Fantastic Four Annual #6, Reed, Ben and Johnny had to go into the Negative Zone and steal Annihilus's Cosmic Control Rod. It was used to bring the cosmic energy in her body under control. Later in John Byrne's Fantastic Four they take a trip into the Negative Zone (FF 251-253) We saw a different part of the Negative Zone in that story, and area that wasn't so hostile Sue and Reed stayed at an inn of some sort and had a second honeymoon. When Sue gets pregnant, she starts to have problems that make her suspect that something is terribly wrong. Reed enlists the help of some radiation experts Bruce Banner, Michael Morbius but has trouble convincing a suspicious Dr. Octopus to come with him to the hospital. When Reed finally succeeds in getting him to the hospital, it is too late.

    Fast forward to Chris Claremont's run and we get the introduction of Valeria von Doom, a teenager who "time dances" by mistake into the FF's HQ. She claims to be the Sue's daughter but in her reality, Doctor Doom is her father. Initially Sue is hostile to her and doesn't want to accept her story because she brings up the memory of the baby girl she lost. Eventually they come to accept her into the family.

    We don't learn Valeria's true origins until the multiverse is threatened by Abraxus in FF#49. It is revealed that a young Franklin was very upset by the apparent loss of Sue's stillborn child in FF #267 and without Reed and Sue knowing about it he secretly sent her soul to Roma who watched over the child in Otherworld.

    These pages from Fantastic Four #49 (vol 3) sums things up pretty well. Later, when Sue is about to deliver her child, Reed has been captured by an offshoot of the Inhumans called the Hidden Ones. With Reed missing and his sister in experiencing difficulties with the cosmic energies that are part of her powers, Johnny goes to the Latveria embassy and persuades Doom to assist. For payment, Doom asks to name the baby girl Valeria.

    I'm a casual FF reader , I read it now and then, and recently started when Doom was about to get married.
    One thing that I've always hoped for FF is to have Johnny aged up a few years, it's long overdue.

    There's a plot device with Johnny that "ages" the character a lot. his relationship with Lyja. In MC2 Lyja is his wife and they have at least one child together. Yeah Torus Storm has a somewhat limited version of Skrull shapeshifting, and energy powers.

    Um... I found it on Pinterest, I'd have to do a web search to try and figure it out. :/

    Yeah I read at least part of that.... starting with her appearance as Marvel Girl.

    We don't want to confuse TheKrytonMan too much but I just wanted to add that Johnny thought he was marrying Alicia at the time

    I am glad that the Fantastic Four is gaining new fans.

    As for Johnny, there have been times when he behaved in a more mature manner but he still likes to play pranks (I'm sure we all know someone like that!)

    If you want to read more of the Fantastic Four maybe you might want to try out Marvel Unlimited or maybe buy a few TPBs. IMO the last good run to check out is Jonathan Hickman's.
