    Έχει ενδιαφέρουσες ιδέες, αλλά βρήκα την υλοποίηση μέτρια. Πολύ περίεργος ρυθμός, πότε λίγο πιο αργός και λίγο πιο βιαστικός από όσο πρέπει, η ιδέα ότι ο Mr Fantastic αναγκάζεται να μάθει μαγεία για να νικήσει τον Doom είναι ενδιαφέρον concept αλλά η υλοποίηση... κλάφτα, το σχέδιο δε με τρέλανε. Μόνο στα δύο τελευταία τεύχη, όπου βλέπουμε τις συνέπειες των όσων έγιναν στην αρχή η ιστορία αποκτάει συναισθηματικό βάθος και αποδίδει με ενδιαφέροντα τρόπο τους χαρακτήρες

    Имаше няколко свежи момента в тази графична новела - хареса ми историята за миналото на Виктор фон Дуум, изкефих се и на появата на триото демони от ада - хазаретите, които нямаше как да не ме наведат до мисли за ценобитите на Клайв Баркър, но в края на краищата обичайният марвелски тюрлю-гювеч надделя. 3,5

While the fantastic four are being tortured with his black magic, Reed is locked in a special cellar that has Dr. Doom's books of magic and sorcery. But why would Dr. Doom lock Reed Richards away with the means to defeat him? To prove a point. He wants to prove that Reed is ignorant when it comes to magic and that he is his superior in this matter. Reed does succeed, but only with the help of the sorcerer supreme himself, Dr. Strange. In the end, Reed and his family are scarred forever by Dr. Doom's actions and Reed's face is scarred from Doom's magic. I would have given this the full five star rating if it had better art, but that was really the only thing I didn't like about it. I can see why Dr. Doom is widely considered to be the best Marvel villain! This is a great example of a science vs. magic story

Especially coming from Waid, who knows how to get to the heart of a character, unearthing their true nature out from under the constraints of their archetypes. It’s not the best Doom, but he’s certainly the equal of Reed and the rest of the FF, and that sure makes him scary. And even when he’s inevitably put back in the box, the family has to deal with some pretty serious aftermath. That’s some heartfelt and worthwhile words to read, images to soak in. Thanks Mark & co.

    This was Mark Waid's big, epic FF story where he did his Doctor Doom story and just blew the doors off things. Instead, it turns out to be one of the only stumbles in an otherwise brilliant run on the FAntastic Four. It just doesn't feel like Waid 'gets' Doctor Doom. All through this story, Doom doesn't sound right, his motivations seem off and a lot of his actions seem out of character.

All through this story, Doom doesn't sound right, his motivations seem off and a lot of his actions seem out of character. Yes, Doom started as a typical Lex Luthur mad scientist/arch foe, but over time he evolved and his meglomania was balanced with a kind of odd nobility and the idea that Doom would want to rule the world, mostly because he thought he could do a better job, but he also had a set of rules that made him a bit more then just another super villain. There's no sign of that. This Doom is vicious, scheming and is making deals with others to pull off his evil plan. Plus, I found the constant messing with the Reed and Sue's kids to be not just out of character for Doom, but unpleasant and over done. Call me old fashioned, but if you're going to be torturing kids in a story it had better be a great story and the torture had better be a rock solid, the story can't work without it element and in this one, it wasn't.It was forced melodrama. It's a shame, because the scenes of the FF trying to cope and stick together through all this are well written, and Waid does a great job of focusing on Reed and making him an interesting character.

Y realmente no decepciona, ya que logra mantener la atención del lector, con dosis justas de épica, acción y misterio. Lamentablemente Wieringo (no digo que sea mal dibujante), parecería que no es la mejor elección para ilustrar el trabajo de Waid, su estilo “acartoonado” con influencias del manga, creo le resta la solemnidad necesaria, para plasmar el tono buscado por el escritor. En los dos números finales “5th Wheel”, Waid junto con Casey Jones (ya no opino), nos muestran las consecuencias directas que sufre el pequeño Franklin, tras su visita al infierno. Si no fuera por los artistas, un “cuatro estrellas” sólido.

    No estuvo mal, pero no me cerro del todo. El conflicto que tiene con la magia Mr fantastico esta bien llevado, y el prologo es muy bueno.

Este comic es sobre Richards pos sobre todas las cosas, Doom con su eterna obsesión por demostrar su superioridad y como Reed siempre lo ha saboteando porque en su visión del mundo, este lo envidia. El nombre impensado viene de las muchas cosas impensadas que terminan ocurriendo, como la traición de Doom al amor de su vida, solo para satisfacer ese deseo megalómano que siempre ha tenido por dentro. Si la ciencia no pudo, tendrá que ser la magia y es ahí donde fue capaz de doblegar a los 4F, pues Richards no dominaba esta área y ni siquiera creía que fuese posible lo que se puede hacer. Finalmente, Victor termina siendo víctima de su propio ego que no lo deja ver que fue engañado por fuerzas que él no entiende pero se niega a aceptar, no así como Reed que es capaz de comprenderlo y justo cuando estaba por irse decide marcar a Richards a nivel físico, después de todo el daño emocional que lo hizo sobrepasar cuando atacó a sus hijos. Una de las partes más altas de este comic son las consecuencias del ataque de Doom, como la familia se fracciona, como Reed se niega a aceptar que odia como se ve su cuerpo, que no acepta todo lo que les hizo Victor y como Franklin ha quedado con estrés postraumático tras su paso al infierno. El sufrimiento de Sue por no poder hacer nada y como Ben, el amigo de la familia quien tuvo una infancia dura es capaz de enseñarle a Franklin que a pesar de todo lo malo, las cosas pasan y ya estará todo mejor.

    Este cómic me trajo muchas emociones encontradas. Por un lado, tengo que admitir que Impensado (y Acción Autoritaria) son de lo mejor que leí de los 4F hasta ahora. Sé que este grupo tiene mucho que ofrecer, pero nunca logré sentir empatía para con ellos más que con ciertos números de Civil War o Secret Invasion. En este número nos encontramos a los 4F frente a su enemigo más emblemático: Dr. Doom.

Por un lado, tengo que admitir que Impensado (y Acción Autoritaria) son de lo mejor que leí de los 4F hasta ahora. Sé que este grupo tiene mucho que ofrecer, pero nunca logré sentir empatía para con ellos más que con ciertos números de Civil War o Secret Invasion. En este número nos encontramos a los 4F frente a su enemigo más emblemático: Dr. Doom. Es interesante lo que hace Waid en ese sentido dado que nos da una introducción al personaje que hace permite que ningún lector quede afuera. Es una cortesía poco usual en este tipo de cómics, pero que verdaderamente se agradece. No porque lo necesitara particularmente, pero en una continuidad tan extensa, intrincada y contradictoria como la que el Universo Marvel nos ofrece, es un lindo gesto del escritor recordar que un lector no tiene por qué saberlo todo. La forma en que está contado permite una lectura rápida de la historia. Bien al estilo de Waid, no faltan elementos cómicos, pero tampoco es una historia vacía, sino que nos ofrece una reflexión sobre como aún el mayor genio del universo Marvel posee carencias y tiene disciplinas que le son ajenas. Si bien los agujeros argumentales que posee la historia (que van desde conveniencias de guion hasta errores de continuidad) empañan un poco el buen trabajo de Waid, lo cierto es que su propuesta fue osada y, de no haber ocurrido lo que ocurrió en Acción Autoritaria, hubiera sido interesante que esto se continuara en el tiempo. El universo Ultimate nos mostró un poco lo que este cómic insinua con el personaje de Reed Richards y su incipiente locura, pero lo que más pongo en valor de este cómic es que todo parece tener consecuencias. Todas las acciones pasadas convergen en el presente y las cosas que allí mismo ocurren no son borradas de una viñeta a la otra, sino que tienen una continuidad que da mayor cuerpo a los personajes. Me estoy excediendo ya, pero no quiero dejar de mencionar el trabajo de Mike Wieringo. Si bien ciertas caracterizaciones las sentí demasiado infantiloides y no fueron de mi agrado, tengo que reconocer que su trabajo tiene calidad y que es capaz de hacer unos poster impresionantes. El dibujo a doble página de la biblioteca y Reed Richards es hermoso, igual que la cicatriz de su rostro. Los contrastes que maneja en su arte que pasan desde lo infantil y ñoño a lo trágico y melancólico me encantaron. Con uno de los guionistas más reconocidos del medio, es normal que Wieringo no tuviera tanto espacio para narrar a través de sus dibujos, pero aún así su trabajo es bueno y no debe ser pasado por alto.

Serial animowany, potem takie sobie filmy. Było mi nie po drodze i troszkę szkoda, bo jak się okazuje F4 zasługuje na więcej uwagi. Na pierwszy plan w omawianym tomie dochodzi nie kto inny jak sam Dr. Doom. Wydaje się on być już zmęczony ciągłymi starciami z Reedem Richardsem i familią, więc tym razem sięga po coś, co zdecydowanie wykracza poza ramy logicznego rozumowania, w jakich operuje Pan Fantastyczny. Czarną magię. Początek to rzut okiem na przeszłość głównego antagonisty, a potem mamy wytoczenie najcięższych armat. Dr. Doom bowiem atakuje całą Fantastyczną Rodzinę, pozbywając się do tego samego Dr. Strange, tak aby nikt nie przeszkodził mu w planach. A te są okropne. W jakiś sposób "opętuje" Walerię, czyli najmłodsze dziecko Reeda i Susan, a ich pierworodnego syna zsyła do... piekła. Dostaje się tu praktycznie całej rodzinie, w taki sposób, że zostaną trwałe ślady i to nie tylko na psychice. Pan Fantastyczny stanie przed prawie niemożliwym. Nauką magii. Tak pokrótce jest nam prezentowana fabuła. Waid ma zaskakująco lekkie pióro, ale także sprowadza na tych bohaterów potężne baty. dodatkowo sprawiając, że nie sposób NIE kibicować tym charakterom. Relacje pomiędzy nimi są... fantastyczne. Ben i Johnny. Bomba. I to nie z wodą. Kreska. Nieżyjący już Mike Wieringo miał świetną kreską, co tutaj tylko potwierdza. Kojarzy mi się ona trochę z kunsztem Bagley, zwłaszcza przy Ultimate Spider-man, ale czuć tutaj jego powiązania z kreskówkami. Nadaje to całości swoistej lekkości, i choć nieco przeczy to poważnemu wydźwiękowi pewnych ukazanych tu wydarzeń, to i tak chcę poznać więcej jego prac, jak i dalsze losy F4. Sądząc po liczbie ocen seria wydaje mi się nieco zapomniana, a szkoda, bo bawiłem się tutaj naprawdę świetnie.

    Δεν είχα διαβάσει μέχρι τώρα πότε ιστορία για τους Fantastic Four γιατί λανθασμένα ήμουν προκατειλημμενος για το πόσο cliché θα ήταν μια οικογένεια υπερηρωων. Και όσα και να υπάρχουν σε αυτή, η ιστορία σε κερδίζει με πολύ όμορφο και διδακτικό τρόπο που μοιάζει παράλογα ταιριαστός. Η βασική ιδέα που αφορά στην ισορροπία και πάλη μεταξύ επιστήμης και μαγείας βοηθά και προωθεί την πλοκή με μοναδικό τρόπο.

    A really amazing beginning, a very weak middle and a warmth end. This was a very interesting entry with a nice premise that was lingering since the inital apparition of Dr Doom back in time: what happened with his wizardly skills, that deformed him, and were put aside for his scientific might? The weak part was what Dr. Richards and doctor Strange did to counter him (now you can guess what happened). Entertaining, but could be a lot better.

    Liked this volume substantially more than the first of this run, and it starts to use the family structure of the FF to give some real emotional stakes, but it still wasn't quite great. Doom was interesting and it was certainly a different take on him, which I liked. Currently enjoying the aftermath stories in the next volume more, though.

    Good Doom fun. He is always a thread and has a good dangerous feeling in him. Even if he wanks around with magic, which is a bit silly. But a good, solid, story. Also in this edition there is a sobby family type of story. I know, Fantastic Four is always about family, but remembering that, that is always a bore.

    Este cómic es de los que me hacen entender por qué la familia de Marvel tiene tanto éxito entre los fans de los superhéroes. Me gustó mucho todo el poder que demuestran en esta entrega, todos los planes para destruir a los cuatro fantásticos y el odio real que siente por ellos el Dr. Doom. De verdad, te deja con ganas de leer mucho más.

    THE BEST FANTASTIC FOUR STORY SINCE FF ANNUAL 3 UNTHINKABLE is where Doctor Doom finally gets the upper hand on The Fantastic Four by using magic. The steaks get higher-and-higher with each issue and no one knows what will happen next, not even Doctor Strange.

    Сносна история, но за съжаление - не особено интересна. Добре, че беше доктор Дуум, който дори и с простоватите похвати е страхотен и многопластов персонаж. Бонус-материалите в края са най-интересното в броя. 3,5*

I haven't seen the film myself, but from what I've noticed in trailers, clips, and reviews there seems to be one thing you can say about the film for sure: it misses the point. What is the point, then, of the Fantastic Four? This comic, for instance. Unthinkable reads like a classic Fantastic Four story that might as well have hailed from the early Lee and Kirby days. It hits all the right notes: the focus on the family aspect, the worlds-beyond-worlds explorer trope, and most of all, the perennial adversary, Doom. Nothing about that screams 'complicated', nothing about that screams 'dull'. Waid tells a familiar story, but one of the kind we know we like. How is it the films keep screwing this up? Take Doom. He is the most famous villain Marvel has, and one of the most simple ones to get right. His greatness lies in how straightforward, single-minded, and uncompromising he is. What's difficult about that? Metal mask, green cape, and KNEEL BEFORE DOOM. There, you're done. Now cast some charismatic actor, and start shooting. If you can swing it, adapt this storyline, because this is quintessential Doom at his finest. I love how every time we're on the brink of feeling sorry for Doom, he turns out to be an asshole after all. Doom is truly Marvel's best baddy. It's easy to get cynical about the Fantastic Four. Four badly received movies have come out, the comic series has been cancelled, and the popularity of the characters seems to be at an all-time low. Still it's runs like Waid's that remind you these characters are what made Marvel tick back in the sixties, and led to all they have given us up to this day. They're Marvel's first family, and so they will ever be. Not a million movies can destroy that.

    I'd heard so much about this storyline and it landed right around the point where I had to seriously cut back on my comic purchases and I quit buying the book on a monthly basis, so when I found it sitting at the library I couldn't resist picking it up. Now, let it be said that I really enjoyed the first story arc that Waid and Weiringo told, 'Sentient', as well as the few issues that came afterwards. The family dynamics were always just as important as the cosmic adventures, so seeing Johnny tak I'd heard so much about this storyline and it landed right around the point where I had to seriously cut back on my comic purchases and I quit buying the book on a monthly basis, so when I found it sitting at the library I couldn't resist picking it up. Now, let it be said that I really enjoyed the first story arc that Waid and Weiringo told, 'Sentient', as well as the few issues that came afterwards. The family dynamics were always just as important as the cosmic adventures, so seeing Johnny taking a job with the FF's company was just as enjoyable as watching Reed trying to outsmart a new lifeform. As far as 'Unthinkable' goes, though, I have to say that I was awfully disappointed with what I saw. It seemed out of character for the team, the series and the creative forces behind the book. Trying to make an FF story disturbing or scary is not an easy task and I don't think Waid was entirely up to the task. Weiringo's artwork was fantastic to look at and his storytelling ability is without peer but, again, the tone of his art is so diametrically opposed to telling this sort of story that the overall fit was awkward. Franklin trapped in Hell? The FF tortured by a sorcerous Doom? Doom wearing a new suit of armour fashioned from the DEAD SKIN OF HIS EX-LOVER? Some cool ideas there, sure, but it just didn't come off for me. When it comes to my FF or Spider-Man stories I get pretty particular and 'Unthinkable' just missed the mark.

Although I did not like the Fantastic Four, I always saw a lot of potential in Doctor Doom. I really liked him and he was one of the reasons I loved Jonathan Hickman's "Secret Wars". The things he does here are, as the title already spoils, UNTHINKABLE. It kept me reading non-stop until the end. Mark Waid really understood Von Doom and that was completely awesome. The Fantastic Four itself is completely amazing (not to say Fantastic) in here. We can relate to all of them, including little Franklin Richards. After this comic I started to be completely crazy about reading Fantastic Four, and that's why I'm giving this comic a 5 star rating. It made me become a Fantastic Four fan. Recommended for everyone.

Throw in some Stephen Strange to try and give Reed's scientific ego a wake up call as Doom has turned to sorcery to torture and humiliate the fantastic four, so Reed is forced to think outside the box into the un-scientific realms of magic, can he get past his stubborn mind to feel rather then think, to lose grip on logic and control to save his family. All are scarred and tormented by Doom's actions. Amazing.

    I was hoping for a great story, but I found it all to be a bit silly and not what I expected of a Fantastic Four story. Dr. Doom was nothing like I remember him which was a shame.

I felt like the writer was trying for a great story but in the end tried so hard that it just didn't work. As for the art - I hated the way Ben Grimm was drawn - for some reason he reminded me of Mr. Blobby in some pics - something about the way his brow was drawn just didn't work either compared to what I'm used to. Annoyingly the story ended on a cliffhanger, and sadly I just didn't care if it was continued or not. However I have the next volume in my possession so I will read it for that reason alone.
