Love James Robinson and dat art! But I hope they don't go to "superhero" with the FF, they always work better as explorers and scientists

I just hope it's good personally. Ever since Hickman's awesome run finished, the FF haven't had the best creative team on them. I really haven't liked what Fraction's done to the FF at all. I want Robinson to do a good job but he's a very inconsistent writer. He can go from writing awesome books like Shade, Starman and Earth 2 to very mediocre titles like his Superman, Justice League of America and All New Invaders series. I hope his FF run falls in the former since Morrison does have a knack for old Golden Age heroes.

I really hope that this book lives up to my expectations and that it is even slightly close to Hickman's great run.But a person can never be sure with James Robinson,he has some great works up in his story but his most recent work has been pretty mediocre and inconsistent.

@lvenger: Invaders has only had 2 issues and has not even finished its first arc, You can not call it mediocre yet because by that logic then his earth 2 was horrible.

Red just isn't the Colour for the FF

Posted by HeraldofGanthet

Black and red costumes.....?

Edited by Jonny_Anonymous

@z3ro180: that was the idea, the editor wanted a colour that would look jarring on the F2F to signify that something wasn't right.

So with this costumes now they are called the Incredilbles?

Edited by AirDave817

Wow, hadn't thought that with the red uniforms they look like The Incredibles! HA! Wonder if there will be a grand Invaders, FF, Incredibles crossover with Robinson writing! Can't wait to see what he and Kirk are bringing.

Posted by Hawkguy

The art looks fantastic but Robinson has been disappointing on Invaders thus far, so I don't have the highest of expectations. Someone please save the F4!

Posted by Lvenger

@br_havoc: The first reviews haven't exactly been glowing and opinions haven't been blown away by Invaders but fair enough.

Posted by frogjitsu

WHAT?! Since when do the FF where RED?! They look like an alternate EVIL FF.

love the Art Adams cover

Like i saw on CBR, they're going to kill HT to make him comeback as an afro-american for the upcoming movie.

I like the costumes actually. Nice way to change it up. Gonna give the first issue a shot.

Considering how the Fantastic Four has ranked on the Diamond Sales Chart in recent months, somebody better save the F4! Let's hope Robinson and Kirk can do it....

@lvenger: All-New Invaders is not mediocre

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

looks FANTASTIC!

@micah: To some people it is, to some it isn't. Opinions on something as subjective as comics tend to get interpreted differently.

My opinion on this upcoming title keeps changing. Sometimes I like the new direction sometimes I don't. As of now, I'm not liking it. But only time will tell when the series finally comes out.

Miss the White uniforms. those were freaking cool. The red and black is over done. Deadpool pulls it off the best

Posted by Cloakx14

i love the art & cover, i can't wait to check it out.

Edited by 2cool4fun

FF is always changing their uniforms, sometimes it's white, sometimes it's blue, sometimes it's dark blue, and now it's red, what next Green? Yellow? Dark Green? All Black?

They are not the Fantasic Four, now they are called The Incredilbles

Posted by Mangakid1995

I'm honestly really bummed that the white Future Foundation costumes are gone. Also is the FF going to play a part in this book? I really love those FF kids and need to see them again soon.

Posted by BuNKiTZ

I'm excited for this book (though I don't like the new costumes... yet) but what's with the premise? The previous NOW! Fantastic Four book started with Reed dying or something and now it's going to be "The Fall of the First Family?" A little somber, if you ask me.

Posted by Barkley

I think it funny that people think marvel cares what its fans think.....the had doc ock in spiderman's body for a year....if you hate red costumes you think marvel gives a shit that you hate them?

Posted by M3th

MetH likes tHe new uniforms but I still tHink Grimm looks tHe best witH black sHorts. Aw, wHen T'CHalla was leading tHe FF, good times.

Only one who died before was the Human Torch.

I can't wait for this! I wish it was biweekly. I like how Sue and Ben have their own look, but I think its odd that Reed and Johnny have the same outfit. They should have made Reed's outfit mostly red and Johnny's mostly black or something so all four would look uniform AND unique.

Deadpools going to be pissed...

Edited by VibraniumSpork

@teerack: Sue died in the Millar/Hitch run. She was a 'Future Sue', but still ^_^

This is looking great though and from the preview pages available it appears to have some of that Waid/Weiringo zing to it; definitely can't wait to give it a go. And hey, it can't be much worse that Fraction's hacky treatment of the Fantastic Four (the FF title was a much better fit for him IMO).

Edited by MaccyD

@teerack: Reed was thought dead as well when Doom transported him to an alternate universe. Ben is the actual only member to truly die, they had to rescue him from heaven and persuade the TOAA.

Edited by VibraniumSpork

@maccyd: Hell yes, how'd I forget that! Jack Kirby as God was an awesome moment!

Seconded, the black and white costumes were fine because they symbolised adventurous explorers that the FF are. This just seems too edgy which goes with the solicits released thus far for this series. I still hope Robinson amazes me though.

Other characters dying don't count... so no "but still" for you. v_v
