Comic book day came with a lot of new things happening in the Marvel universe this week. Luke Cage and family leaving the Avengers, DR. Stephen Strange becoming Sorcerer Supreme once again and last but not least The Fantastic Four or Future Foundation shuffling their roster once again. The new team of She Hulk, Ant-man “Scott lang”, Medusa and Miss Thing “Sharon Ventura”. She Hulk and Medusa and Miss Thing have all been part of the F.F. This new future family is not only stocked with a lot of girl power, Scott Lang one of the many men to call himself Ant-man is now stepping into the huge shoes of Reed Richard. The team behind the new look of Fantastic Four and FF are Matt Fraction teams up with Mark Bagley for “Fantastic Four number 1 and Mike Allred for “FF” number 1.”
Marvel.com had this to say.
“Marvel Now! shows you the future, and it’s fantastic! In the Fantastic Four’s absence, a hand-picked substitute squad—Ant-Man, Medusa, She-Hulk and Miss Thing—must guard Earth and the fledgling Future Foundation for four minutes. What could go wrong?”
The story so far has so many things for reader to get use to. Reed finds that he and his teams powers might be killing them, he intends to leave our universe to find a cure. Marvels first explorers are set into a new adventure which could lead to new places in the multiverse. Leaving Ant-man leader of a new first family of Marvel smartest “Val Richards” and powerful “Franklin Benjamin Richards” young hero’s. With F.F use of guest stars who knows who will show up next? How the new team will work together will give the writers a lot to work with, this new teams personality and history can make this a great mix.
IGN’s Joey Esposito had this to say.
“On top of that, the pairing of the F4 members to the new recruits – Susan/Medusa, Reed/Scott, Thing/She-Hulk – offer some great dynamics that give a logistical reason for why each of these members have been chosen and what their role within the new FF will be. The only exception to that notion is Miss Thing – who isn’t really Miss Thing yet – as she’s a side character that seems to be being positioned to gain her powers (or maybe a suit?) over the course of the coming issues. The lack of attention she gets in issue #1 is notable, but luckily the rest of the cast get their due.”
Well stay tuned for more from the team at F.F. and lets hope the new adventure for the future of the foundation is in good hands with the new team. Marvel Now is taking off, lets see who will be the break out comic?
