  1. Excellent review, mongo. In some ways this serves as a twin to both Fantastic Four #588 and FF #1. Gut twisting indeed, from me who is a Fantastic Four fan in general and a Johnny Storm fan in particular. Dan added depth to the story by having Johnny in his holo address Peter by his nickname “Pete” (as I tweeted Dan) and not as “Spider-Man”, because to him, he will always be Peter Parker as part of his family, the brother behind the mask, and Spider-Man second. Johnny’s final outstretched arm to form the famous FF hand-pile, with Peter adding his last with tears in his eyes, and signing off with a grinning “Ha. Gotcha.” is where I completely lost it and just cried. Because as Sue said, this is his parting gift. In a way, this issue is an epilogue not only to Dan’s excellent Spider-Man/Human Torch mini which Ty Templeton also drew, but to the body of work of nearly 50 years of Johnny Storm/Peter Parker friendship.

    I will agree with you on the seeming incongruence between the demeanor displayed by Ben (and to a lesser extent Sue) here and in FF #1. My only explanation is that, after reminiscing with Peter about the good old days and how it lifted their spirits to have that cathartic moment, they are brought back to Earth with the realization that there’s work to be done, pieces to pick up, and face the uncertainties of the future.
