The Transparent Fox:
Fantastic Four #150
Issue(s): Fantastic Four #150
...is not enough to stop the giant Ultron/Omega combination...
...but Franklin Richards wakes up from his coma and uses his powers to disable the robot.
Reed says that after expending his energy, Franklin's powers are gone.
The second story is the actual wedding of Crystal and Quicksilver.
There's a nice moment between Thor and Iron Man talking about their messed up love lifes.
This issue and the Avengers story preceding it do a decent job in presenting these characters during some downtime moments and spending some time developing their characters a bit.
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: Continued directly from Avengers #127
Continuity Insert? N

This story, unfortunately, is a good example of Gerry Conway's cavalier attitude towards continuity. Too many panels and lines of dialogue don't seem to jibe with Steve Englehart's first story half, and the panel with Ultron's head seems lifted from the end of Avengers #58, skipping his 2nd appearance entirely. These types of inaccuracies throughout Gerry's 1970s comics career probably generate from his habit of lifting dialogue from TV cop shows and writing REALLY fast to make as much money as possible(according to an interview in a TwoMorrows fan magazine, his record was 90 scripted pages over a 3-day weekend).

Iron Man's nose came from Mike Friedrich after he misinterpreted a comment from Stan Lee.

Johnny Storm's reaction to Crystal marrying Quicksilver: "You want to be with that arrogant windbag instead of me? Fine! Just you wait! In another four decades I'm going to be dating your older, hotter sister! You know what she can do with that hair of hers, don't you?" :P
