    This may just surpass that horrible Benji Grimm "Thing" cartoon ("Thing Ring, do your thing!") as the least faithful FF adaptation ever.

    I don't understand the whole "end up being owned by the government and used as weapons" thing. That makes this FF sound like the Ultimates.

    With the improvements in the X-Men franchise of late, I was hoping Fox would likewise improve in their efforts regarding the FF, but this is looking dodgy.

    I think I'm about to vomit. When I read comics the Fantastic Four was one of the few Marvel titles I read. I just loved those characters but that rumored plot sounds like total shit.

    A deactivated HERBIE was in the extended cut of the first Fantastic Four.

    Electro-Doom doesn't seem so bad now, does he...?

    That...wasn't just some sort of delusion...?

    Wow. Just wow.

    Hear that sound? That's the Tim Story ones suddenly becoming not so bad after all.

    I have little love for the Ultimate Universe. :rommie:

    And that's a new character; and one that makes sense. Fury has been in his prime for about eighty years. There must be a million little Nicks running around by now-- except for the ones he outlived.

    Yes, indeed, they really should.

    Hey, it's a creative re-imagining, so it must be good. If we don't like it, we're close minded.

    I hope his cameo his played by Morgan Freeman. :rommie:

    All I can say is that I hope that report is total BS.

    I thought they were going for an Ultimate FF take on the property?
