Maybe, just maybe Doctor Doom has finally gotten things right. Issue #8 Dan Slott has conceived of a plot to harness Galactus himself and the power cosmic to power the earth. He’s also come up with a great way to contain the Fantastic Four in the process. You didn’t really think the FF were really disintegrated. Doom’s vanity wouldn’t allow it without a proper audience. It’s interesting that Slott has captured the tone of the FF in way that is comforting and just right. The book feels like a classic FF story and still has a nice progression to keep our attention. The moments with Franklin, Valeria and Alicia Grimm add further to the story’s family depth. This issue has multiple artists stepping in to take a shot at the first family. Aaron Kuder’s full work on the book will be slightly missed, but we get a little taste at the begining. The final page of the book shows us and the Marvel Universe something that probably can not be unseen. Next issue will surely give us Doom’s total wrath. We can’t wait.
