*But Not Necessarily in that Order.
Ben and Johnny are told by Reed and Sue that Storm and Black Panther will be taking their spots on the team as they work on their marriage and take a second honeymoon. The Wakandian Embassy was detroyed when Storm was fighting the clone of Thor (co-created by Reed). Storm and Black Panther need a place to stay. In the wreckage of the embassy, Reed and T'Challa discovered bombs that were to go off a few hours after they were accidentally discovered. Tony Stark was on scene to assure that S.H.I.E.L.D. would use its resources to discover who placed the bombs there. Stark was hoping Reed would try to talk T'Challa to head back to Wakanda but Reed says he doesn't agree with that decision.
The Fantastic Four hold a press conference announcing the temporary departure of Reed and Sue. Black Panther is asked if they are officially joining the team and he responds that the Fantastic Four are a family rather than a team and that there is no official roster. The Wakandian people begin moving their possessions into the Baxter Building.
The former Deathlok, Michael Collins, arrives wishing to speak to T'Challa. Apparently he's been cured and is back to being a human. There is still something going on with his body but T'Challa is cut off before he can voice it. At the gravesite of a young hero known as Gravity, there appears to have been a black hole that has distorted the site. Ben says it's too bad the Watcher isn't there so they could ask him what happened. Storm suggests that they pay him a visit.
On the moon, they arrive at Uatu's place. The Watcher appears but remains silent. Storm arrives after fetching the Ultimate Nullifier from Johnny's directions. Threats are not necessary. Uatu agrees to share information by allowing them to enter the Cyclopedia Universum. Ben is able to quickly get the information as to what happened to Gravity. It seems Gravity's body has been taken by the cosmic being Epoch.
In the aftermath of Civil War comes RECONSTRUCTION, the beginning of a stunning new era of fantastic adventure. The team has been rocked to its foundations by the controversial events of the last several months. Now Reed and Sue have announced their plans to take some time off to work out their marital problems, leaving Ben and Johnny to hold the fort. But they won't be doing it shorthanded. Two new members join the team, Black Panther and Storm. Epoch says that the events that occurred are beyond their comprehension. The Fantastic Four make to land on her but she begs them to leave. She says their energies she's releasing are detectible and she fears being discovered by the Herald. With that, the Silver Surfer arrives.
