This post is like a painting.  Torch is showing off and reaching for the reporters, vainly, who have all turned their attention to Susan and her fashion plate hair.  Ben’s getting insulted by the press while he insults Johnny.  Ben and Johnny are always all about the insults.  And Reed is crooked, looking over at his girlfriend, realizing how far out of his league she is.

The rest of this issue….Not so poetic.

Stan Lee didn’t really know how to write women very well.  They all acted like a teenage boy would like girls to act.  It wasn’t until much later in the series that Sue became a strong female lead.

Sadly, this is one of the few duds in the first 100 issues of the FF.
