I like Reed Richards' and Tony Stark's staunch atheism in the face of actual Gods.

Really, anyone who has ever met Thor -- and ESPECIALLY if they've gone to Asgard -- has no excuse...

I'm sure Richards and Stark rationalize them as being powerful beings, but not as being "gods" in the capital "G" sense of the word.

Yep, which is cool, I think comics exploring the ramifications of Gods (and not Christian Gods) being real in a realistic way is too problematic and would change the Marvel Universe too much from our own.

Because really, at this point in the Marvel Universe, there should be no Christianity or Islam or Judaism, everyone should worship either the Norse or Ancient Greek Gods.

You mean like Dan Jurgens attempted during his Thor run?

I agree with hab--FF was my last tie to Marvel comics, and Fraction cured me of that.

Why not just switch to Hickman's Avengers titles?

I get people griping about Fantastic Four, it's been OK at best, but FF with Allred has been amazing, how can you hate that?

I was just abbreviating Fantastic Four for speed, but FF the book itself looks okay but reads like poop.
