Fantastic Four 584Jonathan Hickman // Steve Epting
December 2010
****

For over a year, Hickman has been writing one- & two-issue arcs, which makes this multi-plot storyline all the more portentous. Reed parleys w/ Galactus while Sue escorts Namor to Old Atlantis. But the soul is Ben, who swigs his cure & clobbers the gentrified Yancy Gang, now hedge-fund financiers!

The Fantastic Four #15

April 12, 2010

Stan Lee // Jack Kirby
June 1963
****

When the Four take five for individual hobbies, they leave their HQ vulnerable to attack. A criminal mastermind nearly outwits them using their own Kirbytech weaponry & a blockheaded golem. Lee can’t quite make the villain’s super-IQ convincing, leaving Kirby’s creativity to carry the book again.
