Fantastic Four #301 (1987)


Roger Stern’s final plot.  Dude!  You’re leaving?  You just got here!


Mad Thinker, who is in prison and who just attacked (or failed to attack) the FF during Johnny and Alicia’s wedding last issue, telepathically animates more androids and joins up with The Wizard to attempt to exploit Franklin Richards.  They’ve figured out that he has dream precognition—and Mad Thinker decides he won’t mess with kids.

Interesting twist.

Wizard kidnaps Thing, and Franklin uses his powers to bring his family to his rescue.   So, this is basically the issue where Franklin reveals to his parents that he has powers.

Creators: Roger Stern (plot), Tom DeFalco (script), the Buscemas (art)
