Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four #3 Review

Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Well, this series ended up being a bit of a disappointment. I was expecting to read about the Fantastic Four, seeing as that's the name in the title and all, but what it ended up being was three issues of filler and some Human Torch / Lyja talking. No Skrulls, outside of Lyja, no Prison 42 break-ins or prisoner escapes, and no Reed or Sue.

In fact, this issue consisted of undoing everything that's happened to the Baxter Building after being sucked into the Negative Zone. Thing, Human Torch, the kids and Lyja go to Prison 42, ask Tinkerer, who's a prisoner there, to fix the Negative Zone portal, which he does, and then they warp back to New York, re-attached to the Baxter Building and no worse for the wear.

Verdict - Avoid It. It was a really disappointing end to what I was hoping would be a fun little mini-series tie-in spotlighting the Fantastic Four. All it did was piss me off at the fact I wasted money on it.
