fantastic four #39

That’s right.  Pacheco brings back the Baxter Building and gets the team off that horrible pier Chris Claremont had them living on.  He also introduced “Noah Baxter,” an engineer who apparently helped the FF design the first building and is a super-genius.  Masterful bit of retconning.  He seemed so familiar, but I was sure I’d never heard of him–and I’ve read every single FF issue ever written.  In fact, I had to check wikipedia and other resources several times to make sure this really was the first time I’d seen the character.

Absolutely brilliant.
