FF #13 (No. Just bananas Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Oct 25, 2013 1:32 pm

Another very fun issue of FF, Lee Allred has really brought a much bigger sense of goofiness to what was already (should that be ‘allred-y’?) a silly book, and for me, it’s really paying off.

In this issue, we see what happened when the portal exploded at the end of #12. Ant-Man shrunk everyone down to microscopic size, and they escaped to the Blue Area of the Moon on the Impossible Man’s pants. Yes, you read that right, it’s pretty darn hilarious, especially when She-Hulk realizes where they are. Scott Lang new about what Doom was having Alex Power do all along, and so he’s managed to outmaneuver Doom and give himself time to plan… on the Moon. Because the time-stream is in flux, Kid Immortus doesn’t even know where the FF are.

Ant-Man plans to stay in Uatu The Watcher’s house, but Uatu wants them gone, but, in a crazy scheme, Scott waves an Ultimate Nullifier in Uatu’s face, and ties him to a chair. It turns out that the reason Uatu wanted the FF out, was because he has a female Watcher around on a date, and they were planning on getting it on. I’m not sure I ever wanted to think about Watcher-sex (I’m sure there’s some porn of it on the Internet somewhere, Rule-42 or whatever) but it is funny, and it shows the irreverent tone the Allreds are bringing her so well.

So, the FF have free run of the Blue Area, and the kids proceed to run off and have some fun. I really liked the reveal of how the Blue Area adapts to however you personally breathe, which meant that the fish kids could take off their helmets and swim, as for them, it was water. Of course, playing on the Moon isn’t particularly safe, and the kids run across the Red Ghost and his Space Apes, although for some reason there are multiple versions of them, trapped in some kind of weird dimension, perhaps where Red Ghost goes when he becomes intangible? I dunno, it was weird, but like most things in this book, it was funny, especially when the Moloids started copying the Apes (and of course, the Cling Eastwood reference).

In the end, things get a little bit more serious, as Scott realizes he needs to change his approach to Doom, he shouldn’t be trying to kill him in revenge for Cassie’s death, he needs to teach these kids the way of peace. It was good to see that Lee Allred can do more than just comedy, and that he’ll be able to see the darker side of Fraction’s story through. This book is just consistently great, even when it gets a bit too silly, the art from Michael Allred carries it through, and there is that darker side to it. Just a unique, fun ride, I can’t wait to see what happens when the FF and Doom do finally collide.

This book just reads to me like some comics I myself made back in Junior High. Juvenile.

It's one thing to write kids this way, but when did She-Hulk regress to a 10 year old? And while nothing could be more embarrassing than Rulk punching the Watcher, this is a close second for Uatu. One of the greatest cosmic characters in comics history is nothing more than an incontinent horny dog now. :smt011

Sad.

I somewhat agree, but somewhat don't.

Yeah, normally I'd like to see these characters taken a little more seriously, but the humour this issue was so well done that I'm willing to forgive it this time.

It's nice having something that isn't so damn serious. I like having a variety of different comic books to dig into. I hope Marvel continues to have humorous comics after the FF comes to an end.
