    Well, at least he knocked up that lady Watcher in the latest FF, so he's got an heir on the way.

    I could've sworn they did a "Death of A Watcher" storyline not that long ago. Not Uatu, obviously, but I have a vague recollection of a murder mystery (mini-series?) surrounding the death of a Watcher. Any help?

    *peers through a potted plant and elongates her neck through the fronds* Hmm. Veeerry interesting.

    I'll just say that even though Uatu is a big player on/off on the Fantastic Four end of things, I am not too worried about this.

    BTW, is it wrong that the very first thing I thought upon seeing the above pic was "The F4 are getting their traditional blue and black duds back?! YES!!!!"?

    Dammit, Marvel, you folks really dont have any more ideas, do you.

    Well, I'm glad it's probably Jason Aaron doing the event, but "death of a guy who stands around and doesn't do anything" is not the most exciting premise on the face of it.

    I'm sure it's just a portent of what'll come after. First the Tribunal ....

    I don't understand what this means. Where did you think baby Watchers came from? And even if this was a bad idea (because???) it's one minor plot point in one comic among the dozens that Marvel publishes. Clearly Marvel's current publishing strategy does not hinge on a single page of one issue of a Fantastic Four spin-off comics.
