And the new member of the “FF” is…

WUT

WUT?

So, for those that don’t know: The world recently lost Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch.

Reed, Sue and the ever-loving blue-eyed Thing have decided to re-brand themselves in their mourning. No longer calling themselves the Fantastic Four, FF now stands for “Future Foundation” whose mission is to “Save the Marvel Universe from its greatest threats and prevent future dangers from arising”.  Isn’t that what they, and all superheros, did previously?

In a (brief) Q&A, Tom Brevoort,  Senior Vice President of Publishing for Marvel, says “FF will alter the very fabric of the Marvel Universe. Jonathan and Steve have crafted a unique, powerful new series that’s going to surprise a lot of fans with its combination of mind-blowing ideas and visuals.”

Well, Spider-Man joining the team certainly is a mind-blowing idea, and I actually kind of like the iTron costumes.

On the flip-side, Spider-Man must go to the Wolverine school of Time Management because in addition to his full-time job, he patrols New York solo in his various books WHILE juggling membership in the Avengers and now this.

I just imagine poor Peter’s wallet exploding with various membership cards for all the teams he’s been on over the years.

  1. He did try and join the FF in the first issue of amazing spider-man. I'm fairly sure he's been a temporary member before now as well.

    All superheroes have magical schedules that allow them to be in New York in one book and in a distant galaxy in another.

  2. Spider-Man’s white costume here kinda reminds me of an inverted version of his Venom suit.

    Really. Just swap the black and the white and tell me you don’t get the same feeling.

    • Ooo, ooh, and later it turns out the unstable molecules in Spidey's new costume reacts with Pete's radioactive spider blood to become a new symbiont — MONEV !!

  4. He has been a member of the FF a few times before. Many of the Marvel heroes have. How do you sell more copies of the FF? You put popular characters in there, lol.

  5. “Save the Marvel Universe from its greatest threats and prevent future dangers from arising”.

    So, they're gongi to take on the Marvel stoyline editing team with all their might and prowess then?

  6. Durr, silly me. Is the "death" of the Fantastic Four the reason why Marvel didn't allow Capcom to have them in Marvel vs Capcom 3 because they planned the death of the Human Torch over a year ahead?

  7. pretty cool that he's joined can't believe johnnys gone, wonder if he'll ever come back in later comics or if they have permanently killed him off

  8. I have a feeling Spider-Man will be leaving the Avengers for this. They've really played up the whole odd-man-out thing since Steve Rogers took over as head cop. He's the only one on the team with a secret identity now.
