That bit with Cap and horsey boy is really random...

I suspect George Washington's horse was named after Lord Nelson, official British Badass. But that didn't make the horse a badass.

Reads like someone who read a book about Washington and wanted to put a random fact into his story..

But if Cap wants to say "prove it", why doesn't Hickman just have him say "can you prove it", rather than random gibberish about Washington that makes it look like Cap's momentarily lost his mind.

How else can Hickman put in random facts about George Washington?

Cap's racist against horses.

So that's why Beta Ray Bill never joined the Avengers

How did Johnny lose the Cosmic Rod?
He just left it in his sock drawer didn't he?

I think he gave it back to Annihilus after the Negative Zone elected him back as their ruler.

Yep. He introduced democracy to the negative zone in Hickman's superlative extended epilogue.

I think the most frustrating thing about Johnny Storm is how he grows up, gets immature again. Grows up, grows immature. Over and over. It seems like every writer since Byrne loves to make him an adult, then he gets the reset button back down to an overgrown juvenile.

Oh, yes.
Oh gods yes.

I bet Franklin is to blame. He secretly wants the "fun" Uncle Johnny, just like he needs Uncle Ben as the Thing to provide strength and protection. So long as Franklin is capable of manipulating the universe when phenomenal cosmic power, he'll make sure the status quo never changes for long.

That's a pretty brilliant theory, B. I'd like to see a writer roll with that and have somebody outside the family point out Johnny's up-and-down behavior over the years.

Then again, I always wanted someone to point out to Dr. Doom that for a guy who's supposed to be the smartest man on the planet he sets up death traps that take months of preparation that Reed Richards dismantles in five minutes.

Liking how Johnny takes charge here.

And for once, digging the Inhuman involvement. "Hey, can we kill these guys?" "Oh, well since you asked..."
