January 29, 2012 - What was I saying?
Not even a little close
Magnus is about a billion times better.
What if the Malevs, too?
This was a great story. We see a few other sides of characters developing. I've always heard that so many books were never able to round out characters and motivations in TV or movies - especially sideline characters. Comics don't fall into that group or trap. This one is outstanding.
A Malev gains free will, and its reaction, as slightly different from both Earth free will robots and slightly parallel to a parent with the child is great.
I liked how all saw it as the now turning point in the war - and how the uneasy alliances shifted. It is a great story - perhaps best yet of the Malev War.
Versus a rich guy
This one has saps written all over it. Sadly painful to read. A rich guy - with TONS of wealth. He tricks the FF by writing something on a wall behind a chair. Go to battle by reading something nasty written about a brother on the wall.
This issue really has terrible written throughout it. Even with the little boy calling out for his father, running away, and then being trapped into springing a punishment - a time machine - that flings he and Thing back into the exact same time. Ugh.
