STAY COOL, BEN
Check out Reed Richards’s eyebrow game. Man.
And that’s what you missed on Glee. Anyway, it seems like Ben might die if Reed stops the experiment, which makes the decision we all made last issue much harder. Oh well.
You guessed it: this month’s cover is a riff on FF #17’s famous “Doom’s Four-Way Death Trap" cover. While the layout of this one is a lot less interesting, there’s something to be said for death traps that aren’t "moving bars" or "room without a floor."
So here’s the MOST TERRIFYING DECISION: should Reed Richards interrupt his TURN-BEN-GRIMM-INTO-A-HUMAN-INATOR, which could prevent Ben from ever becoming a human again or cause him some sort of vague “not recovering from withdrawal” thing…or…save his wife and pal Zolten Rambow, who are being destroyed by a cosmic alien?
Now folks, when I asked you for a frightening answer, I said the answer to Reed’s dilemma was probably SUE. But what do you think? I guess I’d need to know more information about Ben first, but I’d say keeping him a rock monster forever is better than letting someone die.
I don’t know, folks. You can tell me, I guess.
Apparently, Ben Grimm has a thing for calling people Bela Lugosi.
So here we go. Our heroes literally stop in the middle of an action sequence to wonder what Reed Richards would do, and then leave in the middle of said action sequence to ask Reed Richards what to do.
I mean, I think Reed Richards needs to learn how to delegate some of this decision-making, because moments like this are just ridiculous.
