Daniel and I have been reading The Fantastic Four together. Specifically, we have been reading the issues directly leading up to the death of the Human Torch, which occurred a few months ago. There are alternate dimensions full of Reed Richards and there is a little girl (Val Richards, Reed’s daughter) who is smarter than Reed Richards. This is a big deal because Reed is the smartest man in the Marvel Universe. There is a boy (Franklin Richards, Reed’s son) who can create whole universes with his hands when his powers are not being suppressed. There’s some time travel/alternate dimension stuff that I don’t even fully understand. It’s pretty crazy. But I’m intrigued, and Daniel is very happy that I am reading the stories with him.
