One thing Bleeding Cool seems to ignore is the fact that Rockin' Cool will be joining Ben and Johnny on their multiversal romp. Which means we have Ben and Johnny and a super-genius. Sound familiar? I predict we will quickly (in one or two issues) pick up a fourth character and this one will have some sort of parallel to Sue.


Your prediction record is good, but I'm not so sure. Is Rachna a "super-genius"? She's highly specialized in super-powers, but that doesn't put her in Doom or Reeds class of genius. So I am not sold on the Reed parallel yet. And what would Sue's parallel be in this instance? I just don't see that happening.

All we know at this point is that Rachna was misinformed on dimensional travel and her motivation for joining the team is to learn and experience it. That's not to say she won't be handy, but I don't see this as another incarnation of the Fantastic Four. I see it more as a recon team being formed. On member extorted their way onto the team.

I also agree with the BC review that while her snark was good for an issue, she will need to dial it down for future issues - otherwise we are looking at a grown-up version of Moongirl or Valeria -and that's annoying IMO.
