Notes

Continuity Notes

  • This story states that Reed moved into Marygay's home while Sue Storm was in her late teens. This refutes previous recountings in Fantastic Four #291 and Fantastic Four #543 that state that Sue was only 12 years old when she first met Reed. In the letter page from Fantastic Four Vol 4 #9, Tom Brevoort explains that they changed Sue's age because having a college-aged male falling in love with a pre-teen was inappropriate. However, this creates some issues with continuity, namely regarding Sue's physical age:
    • In 4 #1 Sue states that she was 21 years old when she first went into space in Fantastic Four #1 and (at the time of the story in 4 #1) she was thirty. Based on the measurement of time per the Sliding Timescale of Earth-616, Sue would be roughly 32 years old at the time of this story.
    • Meanwhile, per Fantastic Four #605, at the time of this story Reed is roughly 50 years old per the Sliding Timescale. This would make Reed about 38 years old around the time of Fantastic Four #1.
    • By the original version of Reed and Sue's first meeting, nine years had passed from the time that Reed and Sue first met, making Reed 29 at the time.
    • Sue's actual age is not mentioned in this story, but she appears to be a young woman who is at least 19 years old. This drastically ages Sue making her 28 at the time of the space flight and closer to 40 at the time of this story.
    • This drastically contradicts all of the events that Reed partook in after leaving State University. As such, readers could assume that while Reed did first meet Sue when she was 12, he didn't develop romantic feelings until they reconnected when she was older.
