I was an original reader of the Fantastic Four (early to late sixties) as a child. Let it slide for 38 years, and picked it up again after the movie came out to see what had changed. I wanted to love it, cause I'd loved it as a kid, but the in-your-face occultism and insults to God were overwhelming. Galactus, for one thing, calling himself the alpha and the omega. Reed getting heavily involved in magic, etc. I thought, perhaps, things had changed over time, but when I checked out the very early versions (the ones I'd loved as a kid) the inclusion of and promotion of evolution was pretty strong. I was so disappointed because I remember many happy afternoons with the FF as a kid.
I finally think I'm getting it! All the adults around me used to shake their heads and warn about comic books when I was a kid.
