Four scans from Fantastic Four #584.

Ben's human for a week a year, thanks to Val and the other nerd kids; the Thing reverting to his human form has been an occasional development that can never last, but I think this is a neat conceit.  Keeps him in his most recognizable form most of the time, but allows for you to do odd episodes of normalcy when you feel like it (though I forsee zealous fans keeping track of the number of times it happens and trying to game out based on that how many years have passed).

Anyway, Ben and Johnny hit the town:  walking around with nobody staring, going to see the Giants lose, dining with Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, and playing poker with other superheroes (it seems like that last one is something he could do any time, but whatever), etc.

And then the evening is ruined with Hickman's diabolical revamp of one of the Four's greatest foes:  the all-new, all-different Yancy Street Gang!

Later, Ben goes to Alicia's place to get laid.

Elsewhere, Sue, in her capacity as interlocutor between Regular Atlantis and Weird New Atlantis introduced a few issues ago, goes to accompany Namor to a meeting with the other kings.  So it's off to Utopia!

Ah, Namor, smooth as ever.

Also, we need more Sue/Emma interaction.

If you had asked me for a list of five artists to draw the Fantastic Four, Steve Epting wouldn't have been on it, but I'm really liking his stint so far.

Ah Sue, why do you resist Namor? And yes, Sue and Emma need have a scene where they both want the same cute blouse at a Macy's sale and are on their period.

Maybe I'm the only one who likes Reed and Sue (even when he's being a dick)? Namor has always seemed to me very douche-ish and (naturally given his position) entitled. For instance I think Fraction once said that one of the (but not only) reasons he's sticking around Utopia is to try to get into Emma's pants again despite her loyalty to Scott. And back a decade ago when Reed was "dead" (though Sue didn't believe it), Namor instantly attached himself to the FF to "help" the grieving widow (with even Ben and Johnny calling him out on it).

I like Reed/Sue due to the fact I have a 'thing' for married/canon couples (ironically a much harder fandom to keep than regular fanshipping). Buuut, Reed tends to be douchery, and I never really felt the relationship was a in a good spot. Maybe considering it was created in an era where well, Sue's power of invisibility had other connotations.

Hence why I really really really love Reed/Sue in Ultimate FF (before all the shit hit the giant fans so to speak, I can't read Ultimates anything any more, which is a huge pity). But yeah, I guess it was because Reed was such a cute sciency goofball, and Sue was more sexually aggressive and just as brilliant as he is but in a different field. And in Ultimates, Reed nearly smacks UltimatesNamor around with a giant subconscious giantess version of Sue's mom in her underwear. I mean, that's just a bizarre level of badassness.
