I absolutely adore this panel, for a number of reasons.

First of all, it suggests that, when Reed and Sue get married, they won't be short of ways to spice up their love life. If Reed is a one-man restraining machine, then the idea of furry handcuffs seems rather tame by comparison.]

Secondly, this is a panel I'd love to see on the big screen. I want to see Reed's legs plait themselves as they extend across the room.

Thirdly, just where exactly are Reed's feet?
