Infinite Wars: Mr. Fantastic vs Sub-Mariner

Fantastic Four #412 When: May 1996
Why: Tom DeFalco How: Paul Ryan

Reed Richards has returned from the dead, but his sudden resurrection has not healed the wounds exposed in his absence. When his wife Susan, the Invisible Woman, sustains injury after exerting herself in battle against a hallucinating Black Bolt, the turmoil begins.
