Notes

Continuity Notes

  • Reed refers to himself as a World War II veteran. In Fantastic Four #11 it was first stated that Reed fought in World War II. This has been retconned out of Reed Richard's history per the Sliding Timescale of Earth-616, as Reed fighting in World War II would drastically age the character. Any reference to Reed being in the military should be generalized.
  • The Counter-Earth Reed Richards refers to his version of Sue is in a coma. This happened in Warlock #6 during a similar space flight that created the Fantastic Four on Earth.
