If they are actually doing found footage, I'm sure Reed has little floating cameras to record the scientific experiment he's doing that will result in them getting powers.

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

In Ultimate Fantastic Four they got there powers from trying to invent a matter transporter using the Negative Zone as a shuntspace... By the end Reed Richards had gone insane and tried to destroy/takeover the Earth, which is when Ben Grimm, no longer a massive orange Golem, made his move on Sue, and she went for it.

The coolest thing I took from Ultimate Fantastic Four, other than the Marvel Zombies Crossover obviously, was that Reeds intellect (Increased intellect after the event that gave them powers.) comes from his ability to stretch the meat of his brain, expending and contracting portions to increase the size of portions responsible for particular modes of thought, or decrease the distance between the neurons between his ears.

I was thinking that. Drones are trendy now.

You know, in a way this does seem a bit true to the roots of the team-that is, the first two Lee and Kirby issues where people sort of feared the FF and they were in plain clothes (Thing was also super lumpy, and the Human Torch was more 'flamy' without the human form outline). However issue #3-forward pretty much had them in the classic blue/black uniforms and established as heroes.

The beginnings of the so-called "Marvel Universe" displayed at least a cordial dislike for the old style of "long-john" superhero comics - the FF were grounded in the science fiction/monster comics of the 1950s (Byrne even did a wonderful pastiche of one of those, involving Reed, Sue and Ben in an old "monstrous space invader" story set before their rocket ride) and Spider-Man was an one-off joke about how kitschy such characters were.

Yeah-Amazing Fantasy #15 is actually quite a dark story, and even in his own title for a while Spider-Man is quite self-centered before becoming the hero we know.


Were there plans to launch Spider-Man into an ongoing anyway, or just based on the success of AF? There's a caption or something in that issue that says something about "The new Amazing".

Oh, by the time the story was ready to publish I'm sure that the potential of the character had become clear to them. I don't doubt its origins as a spoof, though - dark as it may be, it's pretty arch as well.

Re: Fantastic Four reboot-- Casting, Rumors, Pix, ect;

As Lee tells it, he wanted to make Spidey a regular character but the publisher didn't care for the idea because it was too off-beat...thus Lee put him in what he knew was the last issue of AF. When the sales figures and fan mail came in, the publisher was singing a different tune.

IIRC, the only reason Lee and Kirby invented the costumes was an attempt to boost sales after the first issue flopped.

I can only assume that it was a much smaller industry back then.

If half he comics you printed are returned and pulped, you'd find out about it quick.

But there is a time lag from when the book is made and when it hits the shelves. They could have been working on the third or fourth issue before the first issue hit the shelves
