As a West Wing fan I tend to relate a lot of character traits in
fiction to that show specifically. I love love love that Hickman writes
Reed as optimistic as Sam and as angry about the world as Tobey. It’s
an amazing contrast and it really speaks to the times we live in. And Reed is correct We should be looking toward the future in an open and engaging way. We should be prepared to take those big leaps in order to catapult our species into a brave new world.
This run has been solid throughout, sometimes amazing and sometimes just a good book but it’s felt like Marvel or the idea of Marvel all the way through. I’ve never read the FF a regular basis. I picked up first issues of new creative teams here and there but it never stuck with me. As a lifetime Marvel Zombie this book feels like coming home somehow, and for that, I love it.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 4 - Very Good

    I definitely got a Sam Seaborne vibe from Reed’s speech ("It’s what’s next!"). Good stuff. 

  2. Reed was a closed-minded prick.  What an insulting self-serving speech.  Can’t believe you people gobble that up.  "The future is going to be really great, and if you don’t agree, I quit!"…also, loved him shouting down the guy who was preaching sustained environmentalism with a limited human footprint to live in harmony with nature as a "old man" clutching to hold on to what he’s got.  Terrible.  Story was a 1.

  3. What do you mean "you people"?
