This is a giant-sized 60th anniversary celebration issue
- Spoiler: show
As is often the case with stories like this, I'm not real sure this makes sense lol. But if you decide to just roll with it, this is a really fun idea for an anniversary issue from Slott. Not quite as inventive as his (and Allred's) legendary Silver Surfer #11 but still clever in the way he uses Kang to pull together Fantastic Four characters from all across the history of the book. (Also he clearly was writing this while watching Loki because the TVA and references to variants can't be a coincidence!) And while I thought the prize at the center of it all might just be a macguffin, it actually ends up propelling us into a very important next plot. So overall a good job by Slott and it was cool for them to let a veteran like Romita Jr do this special considering over his long career I don't believe he ever got to do Fantastic Four. Also kudos for Mark Waid in the back-up story because these revisits of the origin are something that has been done over and over but I feel like he actually framed it in a way to make it interesting all over again.
