Spider-man to join The Fantastic Four
With the current death of The Human Torch, the surviving Fantastic Four members: Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman and The Thing join with Spider-man to create The Future Foundation. The team behind this new twist on The Fantastic Four is Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting."Future Foundation will alter the very fabric of the Marvel Universe," explained Tom Brevoort, Senior Vice President of Publishing. "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."
The Future Foundation will also have new costumes which oddly resemble storm troopers. Along with the new white costumes, new logos are in order for the group which is three hexagons as a reminder of their fallen hero.
Spider-man drops his old red and blue costume to a new white and black one to clash with his three sidekicks. Some speculate how Spider-man will be dealing with this new change after having his most popular comic book 'The Amazing Spider-man' come out three times a month and belong to another group called The Avengers.
This is not the first time Spider-man took part of a New Fantastic Four story. In the early 1990's during Walt Simonson's run, issues #347 thru #349 dealt with Spider-man, Ghost Rider, Wolverine and the Hulk teaming up to find the real Fantastic Four who have gone missing.
Like past super-hero deaths, it is hard to say if The Human Torch will stay dead and Spider-man will keep his role as the new member or will he make an unsurprising appearance back to the comic book pages.
Fans say, the addition of Spider-man is a marketing ploy to boost sales of a recent drop in sales for The Fantastic Four. The first issue arrives in March.
