Sneak Peek: Fantastic Four #600

Published on August 10th, 2011

After taking a little down time in the wake of  Comic Con, Marvel Comics has returned to the comic news cycle this week by teasing a new project involving the Fantastic Four. Starting this past Monday, the 50th anniversary of the first issue of the Fantastic Four, Marvel has been releasing a teaser image a day for a project known only as Four. Each image reveals the creative team of Hickman, Epting, Di Giandomenico, Yu, and Dairymple, as well as a glimpse of what could be the Future Foundation or The Fantastic Four. At this point little is known about what the project might be.

Some think it maybe a second title featuring Marvel’s first family. It may also indicate the return of Johnny Storm, the Human Torch, or it could be a combination of the two. Until Marvel confirms anything it is pure speculation. It is  important to note that November 2011 is when Fantastic Four #600 would have hit.  shelves if it had not been canceled, retitled, and renumbered with the  FF.

I have a feeling it may be a second title that takes place in the past, similar to how now we have Captain America and Captain America and Bucky. The second title would allow them to return to it’s original numbering and bring the Human Torch back, while still keeping him dead.  Stay tuned. I am sure we will be hearing a lot more about the project by the end of the week.
