  How Good is Fantastic Four #642?  [wp-review]   Who Should Read Fantastic Four #642: Any long-time fan of the Fantastic Four, and/or anyone wanting to familiarize themselves with the team before the Fantastic Four movie reboot hits theaters in a few months.  Spider-Man and the Invaders also have appearances, so if you are collecting them, it may be worth picking up also.  Spidey's role in this story arc is pretty cool!

Quiet Man and the Wizard also have the children of the Future Foundation hostage, and are subjecting Franklin Richards to tortuous experiments. Franklin is saved by the actions of a surprise hero...(read the comic to see who.  It is good!) Meanwhile, back at the partially destroyed Baxter Building, Sue, Ben, and Johnny briefly battle the Invaders.  The battle breaks up with the appearance of Valeria Richards, who has been staying with Doctor Doom for a while (long story, that...) This issue ends with our heroes leaving the Baxter Building and seeking aid from Rick Sheridan, AKA the Sleepwalker.   Fantastic Four #642 Writer/Artist/Creators: Writer: James Robinson Pencils and Cover: Leonard Kirk Colors and Cover: Jesus Abatov Variant Cover (with the Thing): Jim Cheung & Shawn Yap Variant Cover: Michael Golden Previous Comic in Fantastic Four Series: Fantastic Four #14 (the numbering of the Fantastic Four series underwent a reboot back to the original numbering with the issue after Fantastic Four #14 (volume 5) in 2015.   Next Comic in Fantastic Four Series: Fantastic Four #643   Fantastic Four Story Arc: This is part of the "Back in Blue" story arc where the Fantastic Four get back together to face their problems.
