Say what you will about Grant Morrison, but ya gotta admit that he could make Reed Richards cool.  Following scans taken from Fantastic Four: 1 2 3 4, written by Morrison, art by Jae Lee(scaled to fit, via the magic of Photobucket).

Okay, here's the set-up; Doctor Doom has been using his Prime Mover computer(from back in the days of Jim Steranko's Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD) to manipulate Ben, Sue and Johnny, with a little help from Mole Man and Sub Mariner(who by the end of issue 3 changed sides, mainly out of anger at being partnered with Mole Man).  With the rest of the FF on the ropes(or so Doom thinks), Doom sent his giant economy-sized Doombot to attack the Baxter Building where Reed is literally inside his think-tank;

Turns out Reed had suspected Doom's plans from the beginning, and built his own Prime Mover machine to counter Doom's 4D chess stragedies, with the help of Johnny and Namor;

Check and mate!

There's also a cool Susan Richards moment at the very end of this mini where she really tells off Doom, but I'll let someone else post that scene.

So Reed, in order to best Doom, makes a device that enlarges his brain?

Yeah, badass. I seriously need to get this book.

Wouldn't that just lengthen his synaptic gaps, thus requiring more time for his neurotransmitters to cross said gap, and his neuron axons, requiring more time for ionization pulses to travel their length, both of which would slow down his mental processes?

If it's anything like the Marvel Manga Reed did, he actually grew new synapses. It was a stretched brain inside the same-sized skull, thus more densely packed.

Yes, you really should. For one thing, it's Jae Lee one of those times he has people doing more than pose moodily, looking graphically stark.

And the coloring is superb.

This, yes.

Jae Lee....he did the art in the original Sentry story, didn't he? Awesome.
