Previous Post

They're bringing back The Hulk
The Original Wolverine
Cap was supposedly going off to a Kamandi future to make way for someone else but now he's back in the latest Avengers in May
Thor's coming back with Mjolner (or something like it)
Jean Grey (the regular one, not the teen or a clone or a time displaced daughter) is back.
Why not toss in the FF in, too?

It really looks like Marvel couldn't wait for Legacy to get it's feet underneath it before they went for the NEXT BIG THING, again. This whole FRESH START, really seemed to come out of left field, whether it was a desperate move or a planned one we'll always hear it was planned. But I really wouldn't put it past them to toss the FF back togehter sooner than expected. The only negative is the image they have only depicts Ben, not even Johnny. But it could be only a partial image.

Yeah, the really telling detail in the CBR article is the heavy amount of FF related Omnibuses of old material being released (or re-released as the case may be) in May.

That having been said, if a new Fantastic Four launch is coming within the next 3-4 months, Marvel needs to give this title a real "fresh start" (to quote the tag line from their marketing campaign) by picking a new first rate creative team to what was once rightfully called "the World's Greatest Comic Magazine".

If Zdarsky is given the new Fantastic Four relaunch to keep going as has over the last couple issues of MTIO, there's very little chance it'll succeed long term.
