Jonathan Hickman, and artists Barry Kitson and Steve Epting, take up what Stan Lee and Jack Kirby have passed on since 1961. We follow the storylines of the four most interesting scientists who were exposed to cosmic radiation, and then donned blue costumes to become the first Marvel team in the MCU. Hickman succeeds the "Civil War" arc, during which Spider-Man becomes an ally to the team. Spider-Man returns to fill in an empty post for the new black-and-white donning members of the FF. Our heroes come with an array of superpowers, but they also have insecurities, and a longing to be normal again. Ken Haeser's drawing of the Fantastic Four shows the personalities that strengthen the bonds between the team members.
