The first family of Marvel Comics has been suspiciously absent ever since the events of Secret Wars II. We are finally getting them back on the printed page in their own self titled comic book once again.
There is much speculation as to why we haven’t seen the Fantastic Four in such a long time. The conspiracy theory with the most gas is Marvel didn’t want to have characters in their comics that they didn’t own theatrical rights on. That seems to pass the truth test since they also killed off Wolverine.
Now with Disney acquiring 20th Century Fox, those characters are coming home to Marvel. The comic books are bringing back Wolverine and lo and behold…. The Fantastic Four are making their triumphant return.
Many great characters got their start in Fantastic Four comics. Galactus, Beholder, and all the Inhumans just to name a few. It’s not easy to write a comic with a team dynamic, but we have faith in Dan Slott to bring them back to prominence.
Fantastic Four #1 hit the shelves on August 8, 2018. They wasted no time as they introduced a new character, Eradikus. Run to your local comic shop and pick up your copy of Fantastic Four #1 before they sell out.
Marvel Comics decided to cancel the Fantastic Four back in 2015. As a result of the Secret Wars story-line Marvel’s first family is torn asunder. A phenomena known as incursions caused the Multiverse to come to an end.
Reed and Sue Richards are thought to be dead by most inhabitants of the Marvel Universe. Survivors believe they sacrificed themselves to stop the final cataclysmic incursion of another world into Earth-616.
Most of the heroes returned home to the remade Marvel Universe. Reed, Sue, Valeria, Franklin and other members of the Future Foundation stayed outside of the universe in order to help remake and bring order to the Multiverse.
Marvel Legacy showed Franklin and Valeria talking about returning home. A new volume for the Fantastic Four is currently planned for release in August 2018, as part of Marvel’s A Fresh Start event.
Having the Fantastic Four back on the shelves every month will be a welcome sight. We can’t wait to see how Marvel works them back into the main universe.
What do you think about the Fantastic Four coming back? Are you happy to see them again or do you think they should stay gone? Do you agree with Jack that Dr. Doom is the most menacing villain in comics? Let us know in the comments.
