Comments: Talk about getting the action started! Reed Richards, Sue and The Thing are falling from a skyscraper. Sue flames on, it's funny to see Sue with her brother's powers. Sue tries to help the Thing, but only makes things worse when burning his arm, then Reed does the arm stretch and the Thing looks like he just got done bungee jumping in front of a crowd of people. That was hilarious. Can't believe Johnny Storm is the new herald for Galactus. Sue is not too happy with her new powers and she lets her hubby know about it. There is even humor on Galactus' ship as Johnny seeks a bathroom.

Karragan the Unforgiving comes across with anger and bitterness because he lost his world and when he faced down Johnny, I thought all hell was going to break loose, but Johnny now has the power cosmic and is able to defeat him with ease. Johnny is scared of that power and what else can he do with this kind of power? I enjoyed the flashback to the Thing's first date with Alicia and how Johnny coaxed the Thing on, to get him to kiss Alicia. If Quasar hadn't joined the FF on their quest for Johnny, I don't see how they could have went after Johnny in deep space. They are fortunate to have Quasar temporarilly on their team!
