    Fantastic Four #46 is a deeply-felt send-off for Dan Slott's run, perfectly encapsulating what makes the team so special. Sincerest tips of the hat to all concerned for making this run so fulfilling, and making the world remember what makes them so great in the first place. Read Full Review

    ‘Fantastic Four' #46 marks the end of Dan Slott's time on the FF. And, as a reminder, we are given an issue that not clears the decks, but also acts as a walk down memory lane and some of the concepts and characters Slott has introduced. An issue that resets the status quo rather than delivers anything more dramatic, but then we've had plenty of that with the recent Reckoning War saga. Read Full Review

    Fantastic Four #46 sees Dan Slott's debut of Mr. Fantastic's estranged half-sister, sadly, she doesn't leave a good lasting impression. She's not much of a compelling character and doesn't really add anything to the FF dynamic as a supporting character. The comic also ignores the recent history and relationship established between Reed and his father Nathaniel Richards in Jonathan Hickman's Fantastic Four series for this story. The best positive thing about this comic is the art from Cafu for both the cover and the interiors, making it a good looking comic. Overall, Reed's new half-sister doesn't seem like a welcome addition to the Fantastic Four or Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, Fantastic Four #46 arrives as a welcome farewell with the toy chest neatly packed away for whoever arrives next. Read Full Review

    This was not the place to introduce a new character, but Slott had to wrap his run up fast, I guess. It was a pretty good issue, all things considered. Slott's run had a lot of ups and downs, and I hope the next run manages to be unambiguously good.

    This issue was not the place to introduce a new player or maybe do it better. Slott had to tie loose ends way too quickly for the next writer but it was off for me. Overall the series had good moments but many bad ones too. Cafu and Aburtov were great on art.

    It's a hard one to rate. I think I'm being a little generous, but there's not much wrong with it. It's definitely not exciting, and kind of corny, but it had some charm and atleast entertained me.

    The art's terrific. The barrage of heartwarming moments works, though I think whether or not it's earned is highly debatable. The loose-end-wrapping-upping is mostly, not entirely, successful (Oy, like *this* you're resurrecting that guy?!).

    I love the *idea* of Reed Richards having a non-super scientist sibling. I *don't* love introducing her in this orbital role, where her whole narrative purpose is to be a sounding board for Reed to emote at. I love her being a WoC, too, but that just makes her passive role and spiky attitude problematic for a few more reasons.

    I would have rated this higher if not for Slott throwing in the half-sister with a terrible attitude. There's so many problems with this character that they are too numerous to list. She verbally attacks Reed the first time they meet, she attacks the children to the point where Franklin even says "give me a break." That tells me that Slott knew his character was too much and did it anyway. He wanted her to be unlikeable. In addition, her skin color is too dark to be a child of a mixed-coupling. She would be a malotto. Then there's the problem with the moon. If the moon is taken away, it would have destroyed the earth, due to the gravitational anomaly it would have caused. It wouldn't have simply changed the tide. Awful writing due to lack o more
