Grown Up Franklin Richards

With those Storm Family genes, Franklin Richards is probably destined to grow up to be a stud like his Uncle Johnny. In Fantastic Four #245, we get a preview of what he may look like in the future when he is accidentally aged up and attacks his uncle. I gotta say, I'm not a fan of the long hair and the beard. Thank to DAN for pointing out this issue to us.

Franklin actually looks suspiciously like Godwulf here, Godwulf being a Deathlok supporting character in the 70's & 80's. I wonder if John Byrne was intentionally making a visual connection here between the two?

I don't like the beard, but I like the fact he did not inherit his dad's hairy chest and is more like Johnny in that regard (Johnny is hairless, even if he was portrayed with some chest hair in the final issues of Fantastic Four).

@DAN, I don't know how Godwulf looked back then, but seem to remember him sporting a mullet/mohawk hybrid type of hairstyle in the 80's or 90'
s.

@Cesar, you really like 'em smooth dontcha, buddy? :)

@pandesal - Check at about the middle of the below page to see the Franklin her\Godwulf resemblance, it's uncanny:
