Black Cat #4

After making it out of Doctor Strange's home with her prize, Felicia Hardy pushes her luck as the next address on the list of targets turns out to be the home of the Fantastic Four. My favorite moments in Black Cat #4 are Black Cat's inner monologues involving the top two reasons no one in their right mind would ever break into 4 Yancy Street (while, of course doing just that).

It helps that Felicia manages to sweet-talk an invitation from Johnny Storm, hoping to make out with one of Reed Richard's books without the Human Torch noticing (and before the Invisible Woman returns). What doesn't help is, for the second job in a row, all hell breaking loose as first Sonny Ocampo shows up and then Blastaar opens a door from the Negative Zone into the FF's living room. Oh boy.

The latest issue also offers the end game for the Black Fox and the madness behind the insane break-ins which will not only lead to a lifetime score but also offers an added bonus of sticking it to the Thieves Guild. Worth a look.
