Descripton: 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.
Descripton: One of Marvel’s earliest teams of superheroes return in their first arc following “Civil War”. We follow the storylines of the four scientists that hone their powers for the greater good and don the blue costumes that gives them their identity and purpose. Their conception drew from the need to create a team whose dynamism extends not just to their allotted powers, but their relationships as well. As individual heroes they can’t be perfect, but together they form the ideal team. Writers maintained frail elements in each character, be it frustration, mislead priorities, or a sense of alienation, which counteracts their intellectual and supernatural capabilities.
