"Bringdown at the Baxter Building."

I imagine Reed probably has to do a battery of scans every time the Fantastic Four returns from the Negative Zone or deep space or wherever, to make sure they haven't brought anything back, and that they're actually home. It's why I kind of liked the Four Freedoms Plaza building, with the big fours on it. Easier to find.

Alright Goo! Nice, nice topic that I don't think gets too much play. Although I admit I haven't read a shit-load of FF issues, I know they do this sort of thing every now and then, as you pointed out, once they get back from whatever dimension they went to.

You gotta' tell me what Ben said that you bleeped out. Gay? Fags? It was probably fags huh?:)

I wish I had those versions of Red and Sue, as I have the HR versions, but still very nice.

Where did you get the device Reed used to scan the building? It almost looks the same device that came w/ the Ultra-Humanite, but that can't be it.

And yes, finally more action figure-centric skits. Hey I know we all have to diverse and all, but I really enjoy the toy skits. It's what brought me here in the 1st place.

Finally, when are you going to resolve the Atom storyline you have going on? Not to mention the Doom Idol one. I know that last one seems destined go on awhile longer, and that's cool, but I'm actually interested in how the Atom one's going to end.

Well, the time the FF got "home" from saving the universe from the Dreaming Celestial, they managed a whole filler issue before they realized "Hey, we're in the universe where Stalin still runs the Soviet Union".

Simonson run, man. It's amazing.

I black out swears, for no apparent reason, since I swear like I'm getting paid for it. I do know I have a Doom Idol written and ready to shoot, and another Batman strip; but I don't know if I had a conclusion in mind for the Atom one. (Possibly 'cause I don't have a plain Atom!)

And Simonson' FF? Great! Man, I just wish he had stayed for longer.

Hey I like swearing:) Well you know that since we talk and all, but you? I don't know man, I don't really see you being a swear bear. Must be that mid-western charm thing or something.

I know you gotta' keep it clean for the kids, but an occasional damn or shit isn't all that far from what they hear and see on TV nowadays.

Simonson did have an awesome, and probably underrated run on FF, depending on who you ask. The time-continuum stuff was confusing, but at least it was a fun mess. And who didn't enjoy the FF's adventure on Dinosaur island? One of my earliest FF issues was that very one, and I loved the Thing suit, even though I was like, why's he wearing a suit? OH young me I do declare.....
