I just read the new Irredeemable--Mark Waid is knocking it out of the park--and there is an idea in it that is sort of illustrative of what I want from Hickman:
[spoiler]There is a virus, an ultrasonic lifeform that spreads quickly using its victims screams as means of transmission.[/spoiler]
It's a brilliant idea I'd not have thought of myself. That's what I want from Hickman on the FF and didn't get in his Dark Reign or #570.
Also, no more worn and weary ideas like the "hey! let's switch opponents!" against the Wizard. Having that bit of stupidity as an opener (after Dark Reign) sure didn't put me in the mood to enjoy the rest of the issue.
I liked that bit, so often big picture thinkers can miss the little details, it was funny.
And I forgot to mention Johnny's heat-vision in my review and I was going to, that was a great touch.
