From the Marvel Comics Database...

Dense Flesh: Due to the great malleability and elasticity of his molecular structure, Mister Fantastic is able to absorb the impact of any type of man-made ballistic projectile by deforming his body along the path of the projectile's trajectory at the point of initial impact.
Contain Explosions: Mister Fantastic may use his elastic form to contain explosions by enveloping them and allowing their force to expand him. He can enclose and absorb the energy of a large explosive, on the order of 8 to 12 pounds of TNT (excluding exotic, high density explosives). Such shocks to his system are physically exhausting.
Redirect Projectiles: After his body absorbs the kinetic energy of a ballistic projectile's impact, Mister Fantastic can expel the object back along its trajectory by flexing his body like a trampoline if he is adequately braced.


That's just incredibly stupid.

I'm digging this iteration of Fantastic Four so far (even though issue 1 & 2 should have been issue 1). I try to avoid actually reading the previews these days though, cause those 3 or 4 pages is like 1/4 of the book now.

@Magnus66 I think you need to read that recap page.
Magnus66 - 1/3/2013, 4:16 PM
@Marvel87... Okay, so he breaking down and THEN gets injured by the bite. Hmmmm, got it.

It won't take long for MARVEL to screw up this next as they have done with Spidey and pretty much all of their other books...
ATrueHero1987 - 1/3/2013, 4:35 PM
@Magnus66 I mean yea, why is that so hard to believe? O_o
Magnus66 - 1/3/2013, 5:44 PM
@Marvel87... Not hard at all. I just read it quick and thought the bite itself led to the injury. Considering his powers and abilities... that was what I was originally commenting on.

I re-read it, and like I said... "got it".
ATrueHero1987 - 1/3/2013, 6:34 PM
@Magnus66 Ok, cool! :)

I've left this and Ironmon on the shelf. Just not my cup If tea. Whenever Doom shows up, I'll be there.
