Franklin Richards: World Be Warned

    (Marvel, 2007)
™ and © 2007 Marvel Characters, Inc.

Chris Eliopoulos’ exuberant art style combines perfectly with Mark Sumerak’s fun-loving scripts in Franklin Richards, Son of a Genius. Franklin Richards, son of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman, has access to the most amazing high-tech gear on the planet, all from his father's lab. Though his dutiful robot care-taker, H.E.R.B.I.E., usually tries to talk him out of his wild plans, Franklin never-the-less steals anything that looks at all fun or useful, from anti-gravity devices to allow him to imitate Spider-Man, to the frictionless force field to protect himself from the school bully. Of course, every one of his father’s inventions has a downside, and Franklin isn’t adept at predicting the trouble some of them may cause, leading to hilarious situations suitable for all ages.
