Spider-Man Joins The FF

But it's not the exact FF you might be thinking about.

No major surprise but Marvel has announced that Spider-Man will be joining the FF but it's not the FF you think it is. After the Fantastic Four lost a member, there will be no more Fantastic Four.  
 
In March, we will see the introduction of the biggest new super hero team of the century. The surviving members of the Fantastic Four join with Spider-Man and some top secret members to form an unstoppable force: The Future Foundation. Their mission is a simple one: save the Marvel Universe from its greatest threats and prevent future dangers from arising.  

 “ FF will alter the very fabric of the Marvel Universe,” explained Tom Brevoort, Senior Vice President of Publishing. “Jonathan and Steve have crafted a unique, powerful new series that’s going to surprise a lot of fans with its combination of mind-blowing ideas and visuals.”  

How secret will the team members be? What will the rest of the Marvel Universe think of this team? Was it really necessary to disband the Fantastic Four?  
 == TEASER == 
FF#1 is on sale March 23. It's written by Jonathan Hickman with pencils and cover by Steve Epting (Daniel Acuna, Stan Goldberg and Marko Djurdjevic provide a variant covers).
 
What are your thoughts on this new team? Who else do you think will become a member?

those costumes are awesome. I hope this arc rides out for at least a couple of years.

I sent them the link to this story!
And Sara replied to me! 
This must be what Beatlemania was like for all those crazy American girls!

Anti-Venom Jr?

Posted by Backflip

Wow, I love this team, and the concept. Okay, we've been banking on it for a while now, but yeah, the return of Alex Power and the fact that Franklin Richard's may actually have some action excites me greatly. Finally, the costumes. Could they look more slick?
 
My one worry though...
 
Spiderman is a solo hero. An Avenger, A New Avenger and A member of the Fantastic Four? How does this guy keep his job at Horizon's?

Spider-Man looks more like Fantomex than Anti-Venom.

They all look really happy for a family that just lost a close relative.

Spider-Man's legs make him look like a little person in the big group shot.
 
We all knew he'd be the replacement...I just wish they'd've considered Speedball/Penance. I think he would thrive with the FF.

100% agree. It's almost like they're GLAD he died.

It almost looks like its a parade celebrating his passing.

I think without Johnny it's appropriate to 'disband' the Fantastic Four. Over all these years they have replaced members, but it never felt right. There are only four members of the FF, and none are replaceable.

I think the Future Foundation is going to be great, or should I say fantastic? I don't think they will all be on the field together though...way to many brains there. I'm ready for some of these storylines that have been set up to start unfolding, and there are plenty of them going on.

As much as I don't care for overexposed characters like Spider-Man, I've always loved his interactions with the Four, especially Reed. He's as good a 'substitute' for the Torch as any.

@Caligula: I thought they made it kinda clear that this would last 1 year before Fantastic Four comes back for issue 600. Or was that just speculation?
Posted by G-Man

I worry about their dry cleaing bills. Those uniforms are going to be tough to keep clean. Unless Reed invented some non-stick coating on top of the unstable molecules.

I'm excited that Alex Power is getting some action time! 
It doesn't really make sense to have Spider-Man in there, but I like the team.

These are just covers and are unlikely to reflect what's actually going on in the book. This is going to be a new team, so they want to make it look good. Standard group poses.
Posted by ArtisticNeedham

Spider-Man is now on the Avengers, the New Avengers, the Fantastic Four, and his own solo adventures.  Not to mention trying to have a real life as Peter Parker when the burden of Spider-Man doesn't get in the way.  Am I missing any?
Meh, its a comic why not.  Cool, he is the perfect fit.

I like these white uniforms.
Posted by Icemizer

Worst costumes ever. Whats black and white and not read. The new FF book. Ok maybe a little harsh but while a new look may have been needed for the reboot this look is just wrong on lots of levels. Maybe they just needed to save money on blue ink.

@Backflip:
New Avenger time basically falls in "Avengers Time" and he seems to be an on call member for those anyway . im guessing he might get dropped from an Avengers team

Future Foundation?  That's a horrible name...

Posted by Mumbles

That's great, another spider man costume that you'll look back on in a few years, and say "Hey! wasn't he cool when he was in his white suit."  Everyone is real happy johnny died.

Posted by CrimsonAvenger

I really want this to last because I have to admit I never liked Johnny Storm very much. Did Marvel announce how this series will last because I'm totally buying this.

It's Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Spider-Man, Thing along with the Future Foundation that Reed started up which consists of: Franklin, Valeria, Dragon Man, Artie, Thirty-Two (a clone of the Wizard), Turg, Tong, Mik, Korr, Leech and Alex Power.

I can't stand those dumb white costumes.

Posted by queenfrost_

I thought Sue was Crystal for a sec xD cool if crystal was on the team tho...
and why is franklin there twice?

Edited by sonic5328

This looks insane! I don't know what to think of it. It's so just different. Just looking at the outfits is like WTF! I LOVE that Alex Power is going to be a part of this (hopefully a big part). Not sure how I feel about Spidey. He's already in a lot of stuff. He is starting to become a new Wolverine lol. Solo adventures, avengers, new avengers, and now this? I am incredibly excited for this though. BTW everyone looks way too happy in that second picture considering someone just died lol.

Posted by Duo_forbidden

Spidey's suit looks awesome! I might read a couple of issues of FF.

Posted by ARMIV

They kinda remind me of Tron...and speaking of which, Spidey gets another new costume...

Only thing interesting in this is the satanist.. I mean, Spidey

Maybe Phantomex and Eddie had a secret love child.
Posted by SuperXAsh

Wow... so Spidey's becoming like Wolverine now??? Future Foundation, Avengers AND his own (various) solo adventures?!? Christ, this is getting silly. 
 
It makes sense (to ME at least) for characters who don't have their own solo series, to possibly juggle being on two teams at once. Because you can fill in the "dots", when they're done with one adventure they go work on something else.
 
But Spidey??? Now he has to juggle being an Avenger, being on the Future Foundation, AND fighting his own rogues gallery. 
 
Still not as overloaded as Wolverine. He has to juggle being an X-Man, on X-Force, an Avenger AND his own solo on-going stories. Hell in one of them HE'S FRIKKIN' DEAD. That's one big flipping schedule he's got there.

I like it! I like the team symbol

@queenfrost_: 
Franklin isn't there twice. The blond boy near Dragon Man is Alex Power.

Spider-Man in white is criminal to my eyes somehow.

This is going to be awesome.
