Hank Pym Rewrites The Physical Rules Of The Marvel Universe, As Explained By The Watcher

Today’s FF #16 is in part a whimsical superhero romp, in part a treatise on power and consequence, and in part a science lesson in Marvel Comics physics.

Let’s skip to that last part. We saw a glimpse of it in last week’s Fantastic Four #16, finishing Matt Fraction‘s run on the title with a little help from his friends, while he took time out not to write Inhuman.

But in his final issue, he rewrote some of the basic ways in which many superpowers work in the Marvel Universe, something that is likely to stick around for quite sometime.

And already it’s being used by characters to expand upon and explain all sorts of power sets and abilities in the Marvel Universe, as powered by the principles of Pym particles.

Will the XYZ axis of powers stand alongside the 616-nomeclatiure for the Marvel Universe? Only time and the creators on the new upcoming Ant Man series, will tell.
