  1. I hadn't read this issue before, but it was a good coda to the FF series as well as prequel to Secret Wars. I agree that Valeria's opening speech needed to be an homage to "Everything dies". Ah well.

    It was great to hear your love of Power Pack. Both of your choices are excellent, while I edge Snark Wars slightly ahead. Another fave of mine is issue #36 featuring Franklin and Master Mold. Then in the All Ages version, PP: Day One issue #2 gets me every time. There's something about Whitey in that story now that I'm a parent.

    About the cover, I think I know which figure you thought was Infamous Iron Man, but that design didn't exist yet since that's a post-SW Doctor Doom. But I can't offer what it would be instead. Hmmm.

    See you on Battleworld, Beyondists!

  2. Have to do some research on which iron man version that is. Good catch though. You are definitely catching the art flubs in the group shots lately.

    1. And I'm the LAST person I'd expect to catch such things!
