  • Reed realizes that the path he has been taking the FF down is the wrong one.
  • It’s time for a year long family vacation.
  • The focus will be on the family and the kids.
  • The family will travel in a Fantastebego.
  • The year long vacation ‘should’ only take 4 minutes in real world time so they ‘shouldn’t be missed’, we will get to that more  in a little bit.
  • Reed has a hidden agenda, we don’t know what it is. Reed has a hidden agenda though

FF – 11/12 written by Matt Fraction 11/12.

  • This will be like X-Force without the mutants (mostly).
  • A large focus will be on how they get along.
