Marvel Reveals Second Teaser for Possible Fantastic Four Return

This image might make you change your thoughts from the first teaser.

Yesterday we saw the mysterious teaser image simply labeled FOUR with the Fantastic Four's logo set for a November release. Most assumed it meant either the return of the Human Torch. It feels too early for Johnny to make his return. Also the Future Foundation hasn't really had a chance to do much. Based on why they were created, there is so much more they have to do before just calling it quits and returning to being just the Fantastic Four.

Here's the latest teaser courtesy of Marvel.

What does this mean? We do see FOUR characters but they are clearly still in their Future Foundation costumes. It wouldn't be surprising if another group for four heroes (or even villains) took on the role as the Fantastic Four while the current Future Foundation members try to save the world.

Either way, as much as I'd like to see the return of the Human Torch, I would rather it not happen this soon. What are your thoughts over all this now that we've seen this second teaser?

Give me Epting or give me death!

with all the members of the FF maybe they split them into 4 different teams so that were not just following the one team the whole time

Posted by Scarlet_Rogue

I think this just teases that the Future Foundation is part of the Fantastic Four event. I think it would be better if the Fantastic Four turn out to be a new team affiliated with the Future Foundation, but completely new members.

I think this teaser follows on to a difrnt pic where there fighting four guys in the f4 costumes. Oh and does any one else think that the invisible woman's bum looks weird?

I would like to see Human Torch back, but not so soon... The Future Foundation should stick arround... Another possibility is that the new Fantastic Four is the part of Future Foundation....

I really still dont like SPider-Man as part of this team.   Him and Wolverine are in too many places. I'd like to see Crystal or Wingfoot be part of this group instead.

Maybe the FF will be fighting the Frightful Four or something.

I agree totally... 
 
And Im starting to hate their costumes... actually I never really liked them to begin with!! The white and black concept is cool but that stupid trio dot on the center of each costume is soooo dumb!! For Spiderman, it's just another costume in his closet but for the rest of the ex-four it looks retarded!! They should have each individual costumes, each explaining their personality and powers rather than look like a space adventure team!! IDK... Im ranting.

I kind of like the costumes..
 
But I also agree that.. maybe they should have individual costumes : )

now i am stumped to what this is about. cant wait though. i love the FF. and what are you guys talking about? spidey is on 2 teams. new avengers is stil avengers.

Posted by TDK_1997

If the Future Foundation will become the Fantastic Four again it will be really stupid and meaningless but let's hope to be a new team of villains or superheroes.

Posted by Darthtravis

I find the Fantastic Four to be the most boring superhero team in comics.  Maybe a new team will make them relevant again.

The art is pretty cool.

I have faith in Hickman, plus didnt he say that as long as he is writing Johnny would stay dead, which is a good thing. 

Also Marvel needs to stop releaseing a million "mysterious" ads that make no sense, they should release one or two semi-detailed ads that make sense and draw in new readers not drive them away with vague images that no one gets

Makes sense for the Four to be made in this way.  I do like that teaser, but you're right, way too early for Johnny to come back right now.

Isn't that basically what they are? That's their origin more or less, and they sure as heck fight a whole bunch of sci-fi villains and plot turns.

they were never supposed to be a superhero team...they're a team of explorers who sometimes get into a fight....plus I've got to say that nonmatching uniforms would be a terrible idea for them

Dat ass

I'm excited to see where they take this...and I love the future foundation suits...
Posted by leokearon

so it might be just a comic name change 
 
on the other hand, I have the feeling that we are only seeing half a pic here......
Posted by goldenkey

is this going to happen after Reed fixes all the worlds problems??

Never mind that, that artwork is incredible.

Maybe it's the great return of the best FF of 'em all!
The ones and only...
 THE NEW FANTASTIC FOUR!!

What? Nobody wants to see them back??
Awww... :(
Posted by Burnstar1230

Maybe make a replacement 'Human Torch' a.k.a. an android similar to the original Human Torch from the 1940's?
 
Then again, it looks like Sue is dealing with a blast of wind or water, like Hydro-Man, a member of the Frightful Four.

Posted by kennybaese

I might be the only one, but I love these costumes. Super clean and simple, and I dig the logos for Reed, Sue, and Ben and I really like Parker's uniform as well. All black and white with clean lines... some great design work, I think.

I've never really been a huge FF fan, but I think I'm going to have to start reading me some Hickman FF trades.

Posted by greenarrows

I think it will be a new generation of the four IE.  the younglings finally getting their first start.  They will become the new fantastic four!  They have showed some potential already in some current issues of Amazing Spider-man.  The sons and daughters will become the new  FANTASTIC FOUR!.  If you just toss a new team together...its just more fantasy bs that marvel is shoveling out and in the end has no essence and holds no water.  
 
Zing!

Posted by TheMess1428

Actually the idea of four villains taking the name sounds way cooler than them going back to their old team name or another four heroes taking the name. I could see Norman Osborn trying to get his own Fantastic Four now that he has already had the Thunderbolts, X-Men, and the Avengers. lol

Posted by UpUpAndAway

The next image is going to be the new F4 looking left and battling the FF in the same formation/pattern.

Edited by bigsoto74

I think the Fantastic Four should take 4 of the Young X-Men and teach them what they know and make a new team. You can have Thing teach Rockslide how to use his strength as the powerhouse of the team. He can also teach him how to deal with looking different. Reed Richards can teach Mercury how to use the her ability to form shapes and weapons to benefit the team. If (or when) the Torch comes back he can team Match to have better control of his fire powers without putting others in harms way. Last but not least, I think Invisible Woman can teach Armor how to use a force field as form of defense and as an offensive weapon.

Could be The New Fantastic Four, with younger members of the FF. Or a villainous FF.

"  It wouldn't be surprising if another group for four heroes (or even villains) took on the role as the Fantastic Four while the current Future Foundation members try to save the world."  
 
if that happened, wouldnt it have been during secret invasion? heh. but otherwise, it is interesting, but i am still not interested in the new FF revamp. 

Posted by iaconpoint

Any new Spider-Man costume is a win. I still don't read anything post Chapter One though.

Yeah but to be walking around like Star Trek with matching costumes is soooo 70s and corny and cheesy....

I prefer this team over the original fantastic four.

its very white 

Posted by _Zombie_

Eh.. still not looking forwards to this.  I'm on the side that this is too soon for the Fantastic Four to return.  Leave Johnny dead for awhile longer..

Posted by ghostfly70

The costumes, and a bit of a late start for me, are why i haven't picked up an issue of FF just yet. I think I am waiting for the TPB.

she has one painfully full on wedgie..
 
maybe we'll have some alternate reality Fantastic Four breaking through and being douche bags and this is the FF half of the fight..It seems like a very Fantastic Four storyline..they love their alternate realities..
