Re: Heroic Age/Avengers Ongoing Discussion Thread (Spoilers)

I've read Fantastic Four 605 a several times now, and it gets better with every read. I think that it compares favorably to Lee and Kirby's classic "This Man, This Monster", in that they are both touching stories that explore the man inside the Thing's rocky exterior and the friendship between Reed and Ben. In years to come when people look back on Hickman's run with the team, this will be the single issue used to define his run and its themes.

ETA: As soon as I posted that I thought about Franklin's birthday issue, which would probably a better representative issue, but this one would be a close second.
