FF #2

The team is introduced to its newest member - Doctor Doom! Let's just say The Thing is less than pleased. And he's not the only one.

The FF travels to Latveria to restore their greatest enemy to full strength...because a young girl promised they would. Okay, the logic of that is more than a little iffy. There's really no reason for Reed and Sue to agree to this just to placate Valeria, no matter what she and Reed's father say needs to happen.

In any case, Doom is reborn and then immediately sets out to make good on his promise to Valeria. Let's just say the Future Foundation isn't going to like this much either.

There are some nice moments including the Moloids being taken aback by Spider-Man's intellect and an intriguing conversation between Sue and Ben over a couple of beers that has the word "foreshadowing" written all over it. Things are a little wonky for the FF these days, but at least they aren't boring. Worth a look.
