Last issue we saw the Fantastic Four at the beginning of the Universe, this issue they’re at the end of it. I love the scale and ambition of this story, but it didn’t really work for me as well as I had hoped it would. The weird aliens were kind of generic and they were surprisingly easy to fool. I did like that both Franklin and Valeria were famous even at the end of the Universe (Franklin likely for the right reasons and Val for the wrong ones), it’s a shame that Marvel will likely never let the kids actually grow up, all we ever get is teases about their future, but it never pays off except in alternate futures.

I’ve always been one to not really care about the logistics of time-travel stories, so can someone else explain to me how this one makes sense, if Blastaar is never sent back in time, then the FF never go forward in time, right? My brain hurts. It’s cool that Ben is now going through his annual 24 hours as a human, that’s a great concept from Hickman’s run and it’s cool to see Fraction use it, and have it be even more tragic due to the fact that he may not even be on Earth for his one day.

I like how the Doctor tricked the aliens at the end of the universe and that then got away with his companions in the TARDIS.

Yeah, this reminded of that second Eccleston episode.

I agree with this. I always prefer time travel stories where the time travel has some sort of logical internal consistency. Unfortunately, the time travel in this story didn't have any. There were some points I liked -- Ben Grimm in human form tricking the aliens and ending his charade by saying, "What a revolting development," had me chuckling, as one example. Having said that the overall plot of this issue really didn't make a while lot of sense and that's too bad. I've enjoyed every other issue of this series so far, so things should look up from this one anomaly I would think.
