  Narration-"and on the other side of the world, another female..." Does Stan know there are synonyms for female like oh, woman, lady, girl, gal, etc.

The kid hasn't got a name yet. Are they waiting for the next annual?

  jfpj1991 - Your comment is right on the target! If Sue gets so confused about naming the baby that she needs Reed's help, then how well can she think under pressure in a fight?

  Wait...Sue had the baby how long ago and they still haven't named it yet?

  The FF might as well have stayed in their cage. They didn't really do anything to save the day...

  I thought a chemical substance held Medusa's hair in check. Now, it was the hypno ray?

  I can at least take solace in the fact that they eventually do Sue justice by making her great in later years.

  Loved this issue mainly for Kirby's art. Nice conclusion to the story, too.

  What is it about baths with Stan? Second royal bath scene we've been treated too.

  Baby placed on it's stomach to sleep, with heavy blankets... times really change. Actually a decent issue though.

  3 stars for the Inhumans takin' over!!!

Continuity - Good to see that Stallior's ball & chain is still broken from Incredible Hulk Annual #1...

Rubber Ducky - @phogbear: Odin not only taught Maximus about fashion last issue, but it seems taking a bath as well...

Hanger On - I wonder if Nebulo was there...just in the shadows??

Kinky - It sounds like Medusa is used to being handcuff...

Humanize - The Alpha Primitives seem a little different from last issue...

Splash - Great image of the Royal Family on the move!!!

Changeup - This issue needs less Zorr, and more Lockjaw!!!

'Nuff Said - "And now...to the baths!"-Coach Maximus

  First scene of Sue in a while and what do we get? She can't make a decision without Reed. Also, he's not much of a husband or a father. He leaves without telling her while she's pregnant and seems to hardly spend any time with her now that they have a son.

  This was the Inhumans' show, no two ways about it. Black Bolt saves the day, and the Fantastic Three escape in time to share in the Royal Family's return to rule. And we're all saved from being turned into a reality-show version of the Walking Dead.

3 stars. It wasn't bad, it wasn't great. And we get get to see Sue, who should just pick a name just to show Reed she can make a decision!

  Jack really wanted an Inhumas comic he could write on his own

  This issue was worth it for the "to the baths" panel alone! Maximus and Odin would be total besties! Hanging around the bathhouse, trying on each other's furs, silencing minions, etc.

Seriously, we have to get them together.

  Third royal bathtime. Odin has tubby-time in Journey Into Mystery 116 and Thor 140.

...Please don't ask how I know this.

  I think Martin Goodman's instincts, when it came to the Inhumans, was correct. Let's face it, they're interesting in small doses like these last two issues, but there's only so much of their dialogue that anyone can take. Even Crystal becomes annoying after a while and you hope Ben will say something to break up the monotony. This isn't to say that they're bad characters, just slightly bland ones.

  Every issue that uses Black Bolts voice gets an extra star from me.

  I like how Ben makes meta-comments about other characters' speeches. It's like he's aware of some of the corny dialogue that Stan writes at times.
