The Gigantic Dragon Man flew of with Reed Richards Bride...really? Really Stan? You're not even saying her name, only calling her by her relation to another male character? See, this is a typical instance of #casual60essexism , not meant in bad spirit, but very devaluating, if you start thinking about it.

Well, and then we have the more blunt: "Stop sounding like a wife and find me that gun, lady!" from page 12.

We also have Johnny, noticing he hasn't called Dorrie in a few days, doing that and learning, she doesn't have time for him right now. This somehow makes him think it's all okay to stalk this one girl he saw, who clearly didn't want anything to do with him. This is getting worse by the panel.

By doing this, he stumbled upon the Inhumans...and Medusa, captured by them. Leaving the handling of women and romance aside, this story is amazing, in how they try to work with Dragon Man and simultaneously introduce this new group of people. They even managed to build up the menace of Black Bolt, without showing his powers once! We don't learn that much about them, but that will obviously remedied in the next few issues. And seeing over the next covers...this is an awesome line of stories for the Fantastic Four right now!

First appearance of the Inhumans!  Now that they have stated there will be an Inhumans movie, this issue will become even more of a classic than it already is.
