Seek shelter and cover head. Do not taunt the Robot Overlord.


  1. Why they look so damn happy? I thought this supposed death was supposed to be a traumatic and awful thing in their lives. Where is the emotion and pain? Marvel is poor and sad trying to pimp loves of comics out of their money for no quality.

  2. And the fact that The Thing has his leg posed like a hosiery model is probably why Stan was the colorist! ;-)

    As far as the characters smiling, what in the name of Jack Kirby do folks expect? Everybody reacting to a heroic “death” like Bruce Wayne’s years of dark brooding vengance over watching his parent’s slaughtered? No. It’s not always like that in the “Real World” where family ties sometimes get stronger when there’s a death of a loved one and you suck it up even more and remember the heroic qualities of the person you lost. The FF being a family, that’s what artists are aming for with the promos for the new series, especially since Peter Parker has been an “ad-hoc” member of their extended family from the beginning of the Silver Age. The Richards/Grimm clan has mourned, they have cried and they have had their guilt and anger. Don’t befault comic writers for using the real stages of grief for their characters, especially the always very “human” FF. The final state is acceptance.
