Marvel's Season One series takes classic origin stories of iconic characters and updates them to modern day. In the case of the Fantastic Four, the most beneficial modernization comes with the characterization of Susan Storm. Writer Roberto Aguire-Sacasa has stated that Susan is his favorite character (she is mine as well) which is clearly evident in this retelling. In the early 1960's, Susan was written very much as a somewhat helpless woman, tagging along with her older boyfriend Reed, and in constant need of reassurance and rescue. In Season One, she is already in possession of the more modern day personality the character has evolved into, and her power level is already such that they're calling her the most powerful member of the FF. It was a welcome change. Other updated elements, such as Reed's scientific colleague, Alyssa Moy, who was created in the last 10 years, have been incorporated into their story.

For new readers, and for fans of the Fantastic Four, this Season One entry is entertaining and well-drawn. I think Roberto Aguire-Sacasa is a wonderful choice to tell the story as well. His work with the team on the controversial 4 series was among the best for these characters, in my opinion.
