July 10, 2012 - Back again
As much as I hate to
FF has come a long way lately. But still has a long way to go. Where is GALACTUS when we NEED him?
Back to all
Loved the last lead - and this one is good, but after Rai, and featuring the signature character of the line, this one disappointed.
So, all come together (of course) to help the future SOLAR send his energy back in time, and close off the power surge of the Chaos Effect.
So far, the line seems to have some pretty big holes - but has been relatively good.
I don't like the changing of Magnus from being drawn old to young and back again - and Torque is a bit of a wimp, certainly, but the book has about two more years - of from what I have heard - terribleness.
Yes, Medusa returns here. And she's changing, of course, into a character that will eventually be a much bigger part of the FF. That, I like. But this Gorgon cloven hoofed guy is terrible. TERRIBLE!
Bringing back Dragon Man, too. Who apparently is in love with Sue? Ugh. Drat.
Now, it is making serious steps toward leaving much of the Silver Age behind. It doesn't seem so cornballed every phrasing and wording I hear - or read - but it has the longest road to take.
Now, the honeymoon angle - with Ben and Johnny - okay.
Of course, I have to mention about Sue wearing the apron and maid outfit - very sixties - and not AT ALL what the honeymoon maid outfit might be thought. Just very sexist and off-putting.
