AN A.X.E. TIE-IN! Trapped alone inside the Baxter Building with no backup in sight, the Invisible Woman battles her way up 35 flights of death traps to stop the mad science of OUBLIETTE MIDAS! But with the clock running out on the Celestial's judgment, can Sue save her husband, Reed, from becoming the latest cog in the Exterminatrix's interdimensional war machine? Can the Thing and the Human Torch free themselves from Oubliette's twisted schemes, or will the hijacked Baxter Building prove to be the FF's ultimate undoing? It's Judgment Times Four, as the Fantastic Four don't plan to go down without a fight!

    Fantastic Four #48 is a strong issue but in a different way from the previous one. As Die Hard in the Baxter Building, Fantastic Four #47 is more fun. But ultimately the end of this issue is more satisfying than simply foiling a caper would have been. And as an added bonus Pepose wrote one of the most clearcut, understandable judgments of the event. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Oct 24, 2022

    Fantastic Four #48 closes out this two-issue story perfectly. Pepose gets the Fantastic Four and shows that with every page. He even does great character work with Oubliette. Cabal and Aburtov were a terrific choice to draw this issue, giving readers detailed art that pops off the page. This is peak FF, from start to finish. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Oct 12, 2022

    Fantastic Four #48isn't just a great Judgment Day tie-in but also a great Fantastic Four story, thanks to its creative team. Pepose is definitely proving that he's a perfect fit for the Marvel Universe, especially when paired with the right artists. And don't worry, Fantastic Four fans: Ryan North and Iban Coello are taking over the First Family's adventures with a new series later this year. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Oct 12, 2022

    Fantastic Four #48 concludes this Die Hard-style story with The invisible Woman and Oubliette battling it out in the Baxter Building. The Invisible Woman has some cool moments in the comic, but the resolution with Oubliette was very underwhelming. The reveal about the villain leaves some potential for her future, but it's not set in stone whether anyone will do anything good with it in the near future. Also, while it's technically a tie-in to the Judgment Day event, it ultimately contributes little to the wider event and felt like it could've been a standalone story. Read Full Review

    Reed's inner monologue is sincere and relatable, but it's the only thing interesting about the issue as a whole. Read Full Review
