As I mentioned in a reply to Fiasco below, can 3 or 4 panels ruin an otherwise fine issue? In this specific instance, at least for me, it dampened my overall enjoyment. I'm not the type to get caught up in debates like "character X could never do that to character Y", but I thought McDuffie was pumping up the Panther a bit too much.
I see your point-The Surfer most definitely could have just been allowing these things to happen in deference to his long-term relationship with the FF. Later on he showed a certain level of omniscience by knowing that Michael Collins was going to fire a weapon at him. At this point he seemed to be stating "enough is enough, no more games."
Still, my inner fanboy is a little bit upset with this scene. Otherwise I thought it was a fine issue and I am enjoying the next chapter in Gravity's story. The FF has always been a showcase for future stars, and I think Gravity has the potential to be one.
I too am looking forward to McDuffie's Frightful Four.
