"You look at Reed and he's about 40. You look at Sue and she looks about 30. And you think he's got a past – before he met Sue, when she was in school, he was at a university in Vienna, mixing it up with some of the most beautiful, richest, smartest girls in the world, you know? So kind of thinking about that, it's kind of interesting.

There are some women in Reed's life that no one talks about prior to Sue obviously. The minute I started thinking along those lines, and also that Reed and Sue are such an odd couple – they're both very attractive but she's a perfectly averagely smart woman and he's literally the world's smartest man. You can't really imagine a normal husband and wife really. So I thought maybe Reed got married on the rebound. You know, he loves Sue with all of his heart, but maybe there was a girl before her who was much more like Reed. So I've nicknamed her "Mrs. Fantastic" and she's a character Reed knew at the university. She's like two points smarter than him on the IQ test and he was just madly in love with her."

Okay, so... long story short, I, a lifelong DC fan, have spent the last several weeks trying to jump into Marvel. Partly for bragging rights, partly because I'm genuinely curious as to whether Marvel has told stories DC genuinely couldn't. I've tried several jumping-on points so far: the first couple issues of The Avengers, the issues of Daredevil leading up to the legendary Frank Miller run, and a couple of the earlier DC/Marvel crossover GNs. Each of them had their moments, but none were really things I'd willingly go back to.

Then a buddy suggested that maybe I should start where it all began: with Marvel's first family. Of course, he then immediately clarified that he meant a modern take on it - preferably by someone whose name begins with "H" and rhymes with "Rickman" - but by then I'd already went and gotten myself the first ten issues of the Lee/Kirby Fantastic Four. Having read through about six of them, I remain tentatively interested in seeing where the King and his faithful self-promoter sidekick is going with all this.

Wait, this was supposed to be a short story, wasn't it? Shit. Basically, I'm looking for suggestions - any suggestions - as to which parts of the MU I should try out next. In the meantime, have this activity I shamelessly ripped off film critic and all-around hilarious Internet reviewer Tim Callahan, in which I determine which page in each of the first four FF issues best sums up what I love about the issue as a whole.

In the final issue of Jonathan Hickman's Fantastic Four before it switched over to FF, the Thing is mourning the loss of a teammate. How does one of the world's strongest superheroes work out his anger?

Hopefully Mephisto isn't around when he gets to the bargaining stage )
