In terms of the FF there's a scene with Ben and Johnny wondering if the FF are still relevant in today's world and they fire a flare in the air. At the end Franklin and Valeria and riding on space scooters or something and exploring a universe and there's a hint that they may be coming back to the "616" reality. Reed is mentioned but not shown.

The rest of the book is various threads that will lead into many of the Marvel Legacy books. The main plot centers around a Celestial in prehistoric times that was buried by early versions of the Iron Fist, Black Panther, Ghost Rider, a Phoenix, Starbrand, and Odin. I hate these types of revisions.

Is it worth it? I'd say no.

I've never cared for the revisionist crap, either. It always feels like instead of building on an existing legacy they are insulting same legacy. A cheap way of writing to get the latest WOW factor. Saw it constantly with Wolverine at the height of the character's popularity many years ago. Maybe a tiny little bit of that type of story telling can be okay, but, the comics seem to have done this way too much over the last few decades.
I am interested in seeing where some of this is going to lead at Marvel. Will it give us a return of the Fantastic Four and a return of honoring characters like Captain America and Thor and Wolverine and what they were truly all about originally? Or, is this just one more big event that's all flash and no substance? Marvel's track record does not fill me with any confidence.
In my haste and after my exhausting work day, I must have skimmed right past the two most important pages in my eyes Wednesday night. Thanks for the info, Jim.
