Fantastic Four #601

Huh. I'm kind of surprised no one's posted this yet. I know someone posted the preview page, but here's what's going on around the view in the sky. This was the second best moment in the book. But since I'm out of pages since this is the latest issue, go and pick it up. It's so worth it. Especially when you see Cap's face when he realizes the scope of what just happened. In any case, I picked the personal moment, because I've been waiting for this moment ever since the book went to its FF status. And it was worth the wait.

i THINK i read the Planetary arc where they were looking for...drummer? in gotham and they were going through the different permutations of Batman (THAT was AWESOME) something out of a Grant Morrison wetdream

His Excalibur run was excellent IMHO.

Er...no he didn't. The Thunderbolts during "Dark Reign" were a team of nondescripts written into dull adventures by (I think) Jason Aaron. Ellis' Thunderbolts were run by Osborn, yes, but only while he was director of the Thunderbolts alone, answerable to Tony Stark and SHIELD. In fact, Brian Bendis got te very idea of Dark Reign FROM Ellis' politically-charged social-behaviour-experiment Thunderbolts stories.

Apart from NEXTwave, Ellis' run on the T-Bolts remains my favourite of his Marvel work, and certainly some of the best comics Marvel has published. For one thing, having Venom, Penance and Bullseye on the team, along with the numerous crosses, double-crosses, and political allegories, made it the only time I was actually interested in the Thunderbolts...

His work on Doom 2099 looked pretty good from what I saw of it.

I think Marvel brings back people too fast.

Mind you, I don't *mind* Steve coming back after Bucky's got the slot for awhile, or what have you. But when you have a cool temporary status quo that's doing well, it'd be nice if they stayed a bit longer.

JMS has kinda disavowed that monstrosity. Kinda. That, and a few other things around the same time -- can't even remember -- put me off buying any comics first-run. Since then, I bought a couple of Thor collections, the Doc Savage omnibus, and not much else.

That was Sins Past, which was set before she or Norman died, IIRC. (I haven't read Spider-Man with anything resembling regularity since the Clone Saga, and never read Sins Past, but that's how I understand it.)

I recently read that in a TPB, yup, it wasn't a resurrection but supposedly set around the time Gwen was leaving for Europe?

It's the reason she left for Europe; she was pregnant.

Normally I'd agree with this but I totally make an exception for Johnny. XD

At the end of the day, I prefer to think of him as both.

Johnny being "dead" was part of the overall ongoing story though, so I'm actually ok with this one for a change! Really epic comeback as well, Hickman turned up the emotions to 11.

I think it was fairly clear that Johnny was coming back (especially since a. they're rebooting the movie series and b. there was no body) from the beginning. I have no problems with it. I love what Hickman has done, everything from his first issues onward and seemingly obscure plot points or character moments seem to be part of a larger picture. Johnny's "death" was part of that.

And if they can bring Bucky back - no one is off-limits (except maybe Uncle Ben). I fully expect Gwen to come back some day and we know Jean is coming back...again.

Oh, agreed. I just wish they spent some more time with Peter in his place before doing so.

Okay, but who is she? I rember that Marqui of Death guy killing her mother or was it Aunt Petunia?

[personal profile] bruinsfan 2011-12-23 04:01 am (UTC)(link)
It was supposedly Petunia, but I think subsequent writers are ignoring just about everything from Millar's run except the extra Galactus corpse it left laying around.

Yeah, like how Doom is now billions of years old and literally godlike in power by the end of the Marquis storyline.

I had trouble swallowing about then. And seeing clearly. And not smiling.

Say what you will about the Hickman's long and complicated setups, the man knows how to deliver a payoff.
