Repeating the images from the preview (now with words) as an assorted who's who of people with grudges against Reed Richards of the FF gather.

Doom, now in the COLORS and member of the FF, taunts Reed as members of the Future Foundation go drop off invites to scheming villains across the globe.

The meeting begins.

turns out Valeria went to visit the Council of Reeds as they were falling to the Celestials, and managed to save four of them and brought them to the 616.

In order for them to rebuild what was lost and return home, the surviving Council of Reeds need pieces of technology. Devices found in four different places:

THEY cause the War of the Four Cities.

Doom needs not to attend such futile FF discussions, in fact, this is merely another Doombot, with Power Point included.

So Reed agrees to host a group of super-villains in a discussion on how to destroy him?

Oh, that is cocky as hell. I love it. :D

technically it was Valeria's Idea.

and if i am guessing from these scans correctly, they have to defeat the four ALT Reeds, so get together all the villain who WANT to kill him...

I mean seriously though. I see her logic, and shes not actually lying, but they just invited all of Reed Richard's most intelligent enemies into their home, under the express pretense that they would be killing Reed Richards. I in no way see how that could backfire, in any shape or form.

The name of the symposium is killing me, even more than Reed's "I want you to end every sentence with, 'I'm just sayin'" speech. Awesome.

How hard do you think it was to talk Doom out of including the words "That Fool" before Reed's name on the invite?

I normally love Valeria but Hickman is beginning to use her as too much of a deus ex machina character now. So she not only knows everything, makes deals with super-villains on her lonesome but can save the lives of other Reeds when her dad could not? She's what - 4 or 5 at most? Meanwhile her brother aka the most powerful mutant in the world who can create who new universes at a whim, is still written (and drawn) like he's barely 10.

I confess I get no sense of her as a character beyond a plot device, a bit like Layla in the Forbidden Tome by He Who Shall Not be Posted.

Same here. She's basically like Rachel in X-Men. And I hated X-Men about when Rachel showed up partly for that reason. Future characters, immortal characters--insufferable know-it-alls. Valeria has yet to grab me as a personality.

(It's one reason I love how they keep humiliating Orlando in LOEG. ;) )

On the other hand they do manage here to make the Wizard look almost threatening.

Unless there's someone who ever thought he was anyway. I mean, "the Wingless Wizard?" So, there are wizards elsewhere WITH wings? Oh, and you can fly and you hang out with Paste-Pot Pete. Jesus, apart from Medusa? The Frightful Four made the Circus of Crime look cool. (Sandman was in more than one group so he doesn't really count much either)

Well, so far as Reed knew when he left them, they didn't seem to need any saving: he helped the Council to see off the original Celestial attack, and it looked like the battle was pretty much over by that point. Val just happened to show up after things had taken a turn for the worse, so the Reeds were able to use the portal she'd come through to escape.

Bill born of Bills died pretty darn easily. I don't see a lot of hope for him.

What's up with him and Kelda right now anyways? Did she go evil or bring him back yet?

Oh, I thought we were going by sheer awesomeness factor, not actual level of power.

And I don't know, I haven't picked up any Fear Itself yet, but I think she's getting involved in it. On the evil side, yes, because apparently she's a little clingier than is god for her.

See, Bill (born of Bills) got the dying part out of the way early, so he didn't need to worry about it cluttering up his schedule at inconvenient times, and now he's just ready to go kick some ass.

...That's my theory and I'm stickin' to it.

Give it time. If they ever shy away from being exactly like Secret Warriors, they'll head in this direction.

You say that now, but there is a part of me that thinks Secret Warriors is the other half of Batman, Inc., given that they both involve an evil, secretive group known as Leviathan. If it turns out Batman is fighting a war against a trans-dimensional Hydra insurgency, remember where you heard it first.

So Reed has a device that can constantly scan the signatures of all the human brains on the planet and locate whichever individual one he wants?

Why does that seem so much more sinister than Professor Xavier being able to do essentially the same thing?

Because Reed Richards has a habit of being completely irresponsible and arrogant with these things. Everything he makes is a potential threat to the universe.
