    Still going I see. *shrugs and sighs* It's got to end sometime...


    Also, does anyone know how to draw Valeria as a young kid and not just as a clone of Sue with shorter hair?

    Yeah, and Maestro didn't do so hot either and that was his second chance at God Doom that ended badly.

    Seriously, really sad to see.

    There could have been some epic Cabal vs Illuminatti/Raft survivor stuff, but... Hickman kinda sorta just quickly killed off everyone.

    I've seen it happen. It's tough though. During Hickman's F4 run I remember some issues thinking the artists would nail it, and some thinking they'd just drawn a small Sue.

    Franklin has a similar problem though. His age is super tough to pin down depending on the artist.

    I don't know if I'd say that. Black Swan has maneuvered herself close to Doom. I'm convinced that isn't going to end well for Doom. Thanos has set Thing in motion towards Doom. The Maker and Reed are working towards Doom's downfall. Namor and Black Panther appear to have buried the hatchet and are heading towards a pretty cool moment.

    Yeah, Proximia and Corvus are captured, but they aren't dead and I'm not entirely convinced they didn't let themselves get captured to maneuver into position. Terax isn't likely dead from that. He's too tough to be just squashed even though that would be a hilarious end for him.

    But even if the Cabal are done impacting the story I wouldn't mind. The Thanos arc was welded onto Infinity by editorial fiat as I understand it. Thanos, Proxima, and Corvus have overstayed their welcome. I'd have been happiest if they'd been destroyed in the Incursion as the Illuminati planned.

    I actually think Proxima and Corvus should stick around post SW, truthfully I thought the Black Order (other than Black Dwarf) were all pretty cool. Hopefully they get reintroduced in MU-8 as Guardians of the Galaxy/Infinity foes.

    Between the new alternate cover with Sue and the kids, and the statue featured in Amazing Spider-Man 3 -- it looks like they've decided that Valeria is now older than Franklin. I realize she was first introduced as an alternate universe teenager, but making her a genius 3-year old only serves to make Franklin come across as 'challenged' all his life.

    My solution would be to just get it over with and make them both teenagers. Then they can have adventures and associations outside of just the Fantastic Four.

    Clearly you do enough to come to the boards and comment.

    Don't like it, don't buy it. Simple enough right?
