Boring characters

This is a common problem with superheros, and all "shared" properties. The only FF comics really worth the read are issues 100-102 of the original run. The first 40 of these have a sort of goofy fun to them. They don't take themesleves at all seriously, From 40-102 the comic is more serious and continuity oriented, and is a ton of fun, if you can get past the dated references and the cheesy dialogue- keeping in mind that they were written for 8 year old boys helps a lot.
" When some wild-eyed, eight foot tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head against a bar room wall, and looks you crooked in the eye, and he asks you if you've payed your dues, well, you just stare that big suker right back in the eye, and you remember what old Jack Burton always says at a time like that, 'Have you paid your dues, Jack? Yes sir, the check is in the mail."

My fondest memories of the FF universe are the ones where the scope is really really big. Like saving the galaxy big rather than saving the city or even the planet. I never had much feeling for the characters; they were Marvel analogues to the flat scientist-heroes from pulp science fiction of the time.
