    This issue wasn't as much fun as the previous two chapters, mostly because it has to spend most of its attentions on wrapping up the crisis it was so busy building up in previous issues, and since Reed is the character who supplies the answer, the ending is a bit anticlimactic. Now the issue still has some clever ideas going for it, as Reed's invention is sure to have Christian scientists trembling with its ability to prove Darwin's Theory of Evolution, and it's put to an rather innovative use in this issue to provide the answer. The ending also does a bit of house cleaning as we see now see Val is the only element that is likely to survive into Mark Waid's run, as Ben loses the ability to turn back into his portly human form. In the end this was a fun, largely inconsequential romp, that made good use of its time, and made the wait for Mark Waid quite bearable. Plus, how can one not love the final words of the evil Things.
