Meet the New Member of the Fantastic Four
Since Johnny Storm AKA Human Torch met his death, the Fantastic Four are already getting a new member, and a name change. Today Marvel announced that Spider-Man would be joining the ranks of Reed Richards, Sue Storm, and Ben Grimm, starting in FF #1, which comes out March 23 with the creative team of Jonathan Hickman (script) and Steve Epting (pencils):
After the death of the Human Torch, the surviving members of the Fantastic Four-Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman & Thing join with Spider-Man and some top secret members to form an unstoppable force: The Future Foundation. Their mission is simple: save the Marvel Universe from its greatest threats and prevent future dangers from arising.
What do you think of this turn of events? Are we going to get a resurrected Johnny Storm who’ll seek revenge on his former group? Only time will tell. All I know is that this now stinks of movie tie ins.
