And so begins a year-plus saga featuring Nova, Skrulls, Galactus, The Champions…Just about everyone. Thing isn’t impressed.
There’s a dude who made a computer out of the brains of a dead civilization, and that’s kinda weird in a “should have been in Superman” kind of way…But the real news here is that the F4 are taken to the Skrull High Court in issue #206 and put on trial for “treason against the Skrull empire.” (How can you be treasonous to a government you never belonged to?) This is a precursor to John Byrne’s absolutely brilliant “Reed Richards on Trial” issue, which comes in about 50 issues. Byrne wasn’t even on the series yet, but he’s coming soon.
