Two Revelations In Fantastic Four #5AU

So you may consider skipping Fantastic Four #5AU. After all, it ties into a crossover you may not be reading, and it’s likely that any reality reset button from Age Of Ultron will wipe out the events in this issue anyway, as the Fantastic Four get contacted by the Black Panther and called back to Earth.

But there are two moments that stick out, one that may be a major revelation for Fantastic Four continuity and another that is a little… odd.

As the Four return to Earth, they leave their kids alone in deep space. Safe, apparently. And leave messages for them.
