Notes from the script:

I’m thinking classic comics imagery for this one. Remember the bit where the newly formed Fantastic Four each put one hand out, stacking their hands on top of each other? I think we could do that here, for Keynes, Gravedust, Byron, and Syr’Nj. -T Campbell 4/11/10 8:38 PM

I like it. If people notice Frigg’s hand isn’t in the mound, it’ll spark questions. -Phil Kahn 4/12/10 10:36 AM

We weren’t really planning to make this a recurring cover motif, but at this point we thought we’d only be doing 24 covers.

[Sounds of Sue and Johnny’s hands splintering and Reed’s hand squishing as Ben lowers his 1,500-pound hand on top of theirs]
