This book is so absolutely frustrating, but in a good way. Both teams continue to be at odds with each other as the Fantastic Four search for their children, and the mutants search for their comrades and rescued mutants on the Marauder.
I love how Doctor Doom has stepped in and promised to help because we all know he usually has other motives. This book was fun but really frustrating as I said. One of the major elements of this story comes down to communication and the lack there of. Sue Richards seems hell bent on not listening to anyone, and Reed is not far behind. They make some very poor choices that before wouldn’t result in too bad of consequences, but now that the mutants are a nation, this could end very badly for the relationship between the Fantastic Four and the mutants. Again this is a strong social commentary on what we see in the real world. With the element of Doctor Doom though, it’s hard to say where this will go.
Overall this is a very exciting book. These two teams seem to not be able to communicate, or should I say be able to listen to the other at all. This is not going to go well, and Doctor Doom will certainly see to that. I highly recommend picking up this book.
