I figure they'll just change it back to the Fantastic 4 instead of the future foundation

Seriously, I hear you say this all the time, yet no good FTBB rant to tell me why. Do you hate her just because she is portrayed as smarter than Reed? Her wacky origin? Dislike children super heroes? Girls have cooties? Please elaborate.

Because she's portrayed as smarter than Doom, and because FTBB gets like that when his bloodsugar gets low.

I wouldn't say bring Johnny back, more so let the members have a brief chat with him threw the help of the Silver Surfer or something.. or threw the help of hte ucrretn sorcerer Supream.

That's a filthy lie. I'm always like that =D 
 
She's a 5 year old that's smarter than Reed and Doom, that Doctor Doom has to ask for help. A five year old. Doom is asking a five year old for help. It's ridiculous and insulting. She's like a bad fan-fiction character. I have no problem with child heroes, I have a problem with children, for no reason, being portrayed as far more intelligent than acknowledged heavyweights. 
 
I'd hate Damian Wayne (a character I love) just as much if he was as smart as someone like Mr Terrific or Lex Luthor.

@FadeToBlackBolt: I don't think they've gone and said she is smarter than Doom. It has been alluded to that she is as smart or could become smarter than Reed, which arguably puts her at or above Doom's level of intelligence. Doom only needed her help because he was brain damaged in World War Hulks, something that happened just so the writers could boost the intelligence of Bruce Banner (as the whole time he could not become the Hulk, they had to show Bruce's worth). I can accept that since Doom was still mildly phased by Banner's intelligence sapping technology.

But as for Valeria, there are real life child geniuses. No super powers necessary. Also, if you look at Franklin, he is one of the most powerful people in the Marvel Universe, so much so that his powers needed to be "turned off" and now that they are back, Galactus actually "fears" his power. Galactus. FEAR? It seems Reed and Sue make some super awesome babies. I feel like both children are over the top and if you dislike one, you should dislike them both.

As for the topic at hand, I'd like just some good family stories. Those are always what I like the best about the team. We could bring Johnny in for some flashbacks and they could all reminisce a bit and tell some good heartwarming stories that show their strong bonds. A recent example I can think of is Fantastic Four in...Ataque del MODOK! It was just Reed and Sue and it told the story of how Reed came up with the name Mr. Fantastic. I loved it. Do something like that and include the entire family.

@jloneblackheart: If Valeria was a mutant like Franklin, I wouldn't mind, and I know there are child geniuses, but she's not smart. She's the smartest, or top three now. That's what annoys me. I don't like Franklin either, but his existence doesn't grate on me as much, because he's still a kid. Valeria holds discussions with Doctor Doom. I mean, what? 
 
Honestly, I just think it demeans Reed and Doom by having this four year old talk to them on even footing. It's just a case of personal taste, I suppose.

@FadeToBlackBolt:

She had powers before she was reverted back to childhood. She has been mystically powered before by Doom. Then Roma pretty much let her be reborn as a gift to Reed and Sue for stopping Abraxas through a magical means. I have always been under the impression that she some kind of a mutant as well. I mean, I guess if she isn't than that is kind of annoying and I can see your side of things.

And I totally respect your opinion, but up until now I'll I've ever seen you say is "Get rid of Valeria" and "Kill Valeria," so that's why I asked.

@jloneblackheart: No worries, mate. As you know, I respect the Hell out of you, so I'm always happy to answer any queries you have concerning my craziness :P 
 
Ah, so it is the same Valeria. I wasn't sure if she was just a natural birth like Franklin. That changes things. Thanks for the info :)

I'm joining the kill Valeria bandwagon if there are any openings!

#33 Posted by Uncas007 (56 posts) - - Show Bio

Let's just hope they don't "commemorate" their 50th anniversary by cancelling the title and killing off the rest of the team.

#34 Posted by Shadowdoggy (3815 posts) - - Show Bio

I dunno what will happen, but it's not nearly as exciting with just 3/4 attending the 50th anniversary


#35 Posted by PowerHerc (81458 posts) - - Show Bio

They'll amp the Thing's strength up to a level on par with the Hulk, Setnry, Hercules (classic), Thor, Gladiator, Juggernaut and Hyperion!

He'll be where he should be strngth-wise, instead of being the second-rater (strength-wise) Marvel has allowed him to become.

Well, obviously I'm being delusional; Marvel will never do this! I wish they would though.

We'll open the latest issue of FF and Mole Man will have taken Reed's place in their group and be married to Sue. None of the characters will say anything about where Reed is or what happened; they'll simply act like things have always been this way, and Marvel will NEVER reveal the answer or return Reed to the series, while continually promising to bring him back. Also, Johnny will eventually return and his powers will be retconned so that he feels pain from the fire. (Hey, The Venture Bros. are hilarious.)
