FF Fridays: The Invisible Woman


I thought it was time to spotlight the FF's most-overlooked ( 'cos she's invisible, get it? ) member, Sue ( Storm ) Richards. When the fantastic foursome first appeared 50 years ago, Sue was often seen ( or not, get it? ) as the weakest member of the group, which was obviously a sign of the times. But, over the years, her character was more defined as a strong woman - a wife, a mother, and also an independent and resourceful team member and leader - someone who didn't faint / need to be rescued every ten minutes.

Incidentally, I just thought I'd mention how difficult it is to find decent pictures of the Invisible Woman on t'internet. By which I mean pics that aren't wholly exploitative, tits 'n' ass shots. If you're looking for that pic of Sue being spanked by a naked Wonder Woman, you'll have to look elsewhere...

I remember a story where she was being mind controlled by someone (The Hatemonger, maybe, I'm not sure)and she used her powers with great affect, such a creating a force bubble around someone's head (She Hulk I think) to suffocate them, and creating force spikes and so on. It showed that with some imagination she could be very, very powerful.

@Kid
I knew that Bruce Timm picture would gain the post some interest :-)

@Steve
Agreed, mate. Some recent FF writers, like Millar and Hickman, have definitely shown that Sue could be one of the most dangerous characters in the Marvel Universe...
