Black Bolt Responds To Galactus' Threat In The Latest FF #600 Teaser

It looks like there is a good chance Black Bolt and the Inhumans might team up with the FF to fight a common enemy...

Yesterday 's teaser revealed Galactus' message for the FF: soon, the world as they know it "will be broken." If you've been reading FF as of late then you already know that writer Jonathan Hickman has roped Black Bolt and the Inhumans into the story line. The latest teaser from Marvel is Black Bolt's response.

Somehow, I don't believe the FF and the Inhumans will take Galactus' threat lightly -- or sitting down, for that matter. What do you think this means?

Fantastic Four #600 hits store shelves on November 22nd, and FF #12 will be available on November 30th.

Wait. Is Black Bolt saying that? I is confuse. :/ I'm starting to think Ol' Grumpy Galactus aint the bad guy this time around. This'll surely be interesting.

FF confuses me a lot and is now starting to bore me.

Have to agree with this.

Can we give a bravo to Marvel's marketing department? I never know a damn thing about what I might see next month with DC, but I always know the cool new stuff going on at Marvel.

My advice is don't

Wait if Blackbolt said anything...wouldn't everyone around him be blasted to bits?

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Interesting...but yes I'm kinda with others here. Wouldn't what he said be fatal for all those around him?

Galactus? Again? Awesome...I'm going to get some sleep now.

It's kind of dumb.

Anyway it seemed to be only a political marriage. We wouldn't want any ones inner Femzilla to get upset. :p

Oh snap! :P Seriously though is that big poppa G behind him or what?

Posted by zombiejesusii

Yep, Galactus is a herald now for Super-Galactus, when this happens I'll say i told you all so...

Posted by Standurd

I hope FF gets better. Its the next one to get dropped from my pull list if it doesnt.

I agree, this makes it all look like a warning...but from Galactus?! An alliance maybe?

That'd be crazy! But possible. Just wondering who might be behind all this, a new galactic/universal sized villain.

Might throw me in a frenzy like reading to catch up all the major Marvel events that lead to these. =D

I think that is the KRee Supreme Intelligence behind Black Bolt. IN the FF book, there appears to be a looming civil war between the Inhumans and the Kree.

Nope, Future Foundation, if I'm not mistaken. I've read RoK and WoK and Emperor Vulcan and that never happened in any of those.

@The Dark Huntress:Ah, I see. I'm saving up for WoK, RoK and Emperor Vulcan, I'm sure they're good. Thanks.

Hopefully Ronan and the Kree will kick the Inhuman collective ass and get what they were promised when they seceded the Kree empire to the Inhumans; Terragenesis.

I'd recommend reading Hickman's F4 Prime Elements arc & FF issues 6/7 and the latest ones for some good Black Bolt/Inhumans stories.

I like Blackbolt & the Inhumans. *sigh* I am trying to drop books, not pick new ones up! hahah. I will wait to see what my favorite reviewers have to say. =)

Posted by nnotdead

FF isn't on Comixology, so i will have to skip all of this. unless i can get more storage space for physical books soon. Daredevil isn't on it either, so 3/4 of the Marvel books i was reading i can't pick up right now.

Black Bolt is amazing, and the only reason for the terribleness of his current FF stuff is because bloody DnA Bendis'd* the character into oblivion.

More Inhumans, woot! Always liked Black Bolt! Such a fun and different character from the usual~

Posted by jloneblackheart

I don't think this has anything to do with Galactus. It's between the Inhumans and the Kree. I hope the Kree win.

I thought DnA did a great job with Black Bolt and the Inhumans. I loved them leading the Kree, and the development of Crystal and Ronan's relationship. From their marriage being a necessity to them actually falling for each other has been quite lovely. Black Bolt "dying" was sad, but of course we knew you can't kill that guy..! If minor characters don't stay dead, there's no way you kill the King of the Inhumans, and such a big fan favorite...

I don't like the FF stuff as much because Black Bolt just comes back out of nowhere, and they abandon the Kree, and fly right back to the Moon... it was a little sudden and felt like Hickman just wanted to ignore DnA's stories and alter things to fit his plans. He's usually a pretty tight writer, but this bothered me. The multiple brides is just dumb to me personally. Totally doesn't seem like a Black Bolt kind of thing. He's a one-woman man. How can he have such a strong bond with Medusa to the point that she knows what his kingly orders are if he is dividing his loving up with all these other women.. and then for them all to have the tuning forks on their heads seems silly.. it's not a crown, just a Jack Kirby design choice. Medusa doesn't have one, but Lockjaw does... So does that make Lockjaw Black Bolt's wife...?

In the end, I trust Hickman will write a good story, but I don't like how he's pushed around my Inhumans thus far.

I was reading the whole secret invasion thing with the inhumans where they went to fnd a captive black bolt and when Medusa and Crystal went to the woman's warrior on roids camp and Crystal started talking about how blackager and medusa's love was unique and then a black bolt suddenly marries other women. When they give him a cane and a purple suit complete with Fedora and a few gold teeth, I will lose all faith in the inhumans

I'm just trying to figure out how he survived the fight with Vulcan with barely a scratch and went right into the 5 wives return to the moon story line

I just downloaded Fantastic Four # 600 . And that was not a threat from Galactus , its a warning . And it takes place in the last couple of pages of the issue . Black Bolt is not present in that conversation , only Reed and Sue are . Also this conversation ties in Mighty Thor series with FF # 600 , b/c Galactus is worried that the Kree invasion of Earth would release the Galactus Seed into the wilderness of space , out of his sight and prematurely release a new Galactus , who could end up destroying the universe . Galactus doesn't want that to happen thats why he is willing to interfere in Earth's matters.

It wasn't Black Bolt talking to Galactus. It was Medusa talking to Black Bolt.
