    You also recevied a vote from me, listed on page 3. Though I agree that discussion and comments during the voting phase is something that generally should be avoided, for ease of counting.

    Unless I missed it in review, I think he mentioned Capt's entry before voting began.

    I also counted four votes for CaptCleghorn.

    A new contest has been posted.

    Thanks again to ChadH, kjn, MRP, and nx01A for their votes. Also, thanks to Ray for the contest idea. As always, I have comments.

    I think it's very possible to think a cover would be a cinch to make it for a contest and not be willing to use it yourself. Personally, I ws surprised that none of the plethora of FF 1 homage covers were used. But that's part of the fun and enjoyment of this contest. One is never sure of the outcome.

    For those of you who may not be familiar with the origin of my "FF purist/snob" title, it comes from a comment made in a pre-reshuffling FF post talling about folks who enjoy the old days of that series considerably and may be less receptive to change. And I don't disagree with that description, but leave it to those seeing my posts in various threads to make that call. And I am going to once again compliment the participants of this weekly contest in being able to keep their opinions civil and relevant.

    An awesome cover, CC! Though I was a little disappointed by there being no frogs included.

    Yay, CaptCleghorn!

    For those of you who haven't read Planetary, you should.

    On Edit.
    Now I see it, you are suppose to put "Cover Contest" and the dates in the title.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Some final and late notes… I was hoping to see the two Marvel teams that are the closest homages to the Fantastic For without being affiliated to them (such as Fantastic Force):



    Introduced as the "evil" F.F. although they weren't the first foursome to go against the Fan 4, that honor goes to the Red Ghost and his Super-Apes.



    Although they never confronted the FF, the U-Foes are an even more direct counterpart to the FF. Millionaire with plans to go to space? Check. Pilot friend at the controls? Check. Girlfriend and her brother tag along? Check.

    And don't forget over at DC there was

    Hank Henshaw (who would become Cyborg Superman) and his fellow astronauts.

    Wow, Ravin' Ray. I really like that Frightful Four cover. If that is a variant I unfortunately missed it. I forgot about the U-Foes. Another good one

    Didn't the F4 also battle Four elementals?
    Can't remember their names or if they ever featured on a cover, Maybe created by Diablo?

    Another Forgotten Foursome:
    The Kid Commandos!

    Bucky - Torro - Golden Girl - The Top
