Eye of the beholder. Glad I like it, wish more folks did.
Yeah, the tether thing is odd. So, if they are all in the same Universe, would the REAL (cough, cough, cough) death of a member eventually lead to the loss of powers to the others? Or would real world death just change the transfer methodology. I like that they are trying to give a comic book logic answer to the impossibles of super hero physics. But at the same time, this can have a lot of questionable ramifications.
Either way, it needs to be fixed. Maybe it's a long way to explain any jobbing Ben has taken since Secret Wars, but from what I heard he was doing pretty well for himself in Guardians. Also, all of Ben's Billions and Johnny's Billions are locked up in the Avengers? Jeez, what're the entrance fees to the A club these days and how is Ms Marvel paying them?
I'm pretty happy with the Hydro-Man intro, the cover makes sense. All these weeks I thought they were gonna be in some new Pirate overboard adventure!
Oh, one last thing. Why are all these intelligent people such selfish jerks? From Moon Girl to this gal, what ever happened to appreciative geniuses? I have friends that're NASA scientists and they never treat anyone like that.
I have the same questions. If one FF member dies, than the rest will spend out like cheap batteries? The tether thing SUCKS! It will need to be retconned. Seriously? A group of heroes that travel dimensions independently and together. What about when Johnny was in the N-Zone for a long period of time? No power-down was noticed by Reed? It doesn't make sense.
Also, the whole "Johnny can't afford $250K-$750K for cosmic Viagra? He had inherited 3 billion and it's all tied up with the Avengers? Ridiculous!
