Visually, I'm not a fan of this panel. If I was battling Reed, I'd be looking to control his extremities, keeping his arms and legs restrained. His stomach is not that much of a threat. The depiction of the force-field also make me feel like the letterer forgot to fill in the 'speech' in a thought balloon.

What I do like is that this is the first time Sue has used her force-fields offensively against Reed. She protected him from Namor in Fantastic Four #27, but here, influenced by Doctor Doom and believing she's seen Reed snogging another woman, she really goes for him.
