    Default The Fantastic Four Appreciation 2021

    NIST says it's midnight EST, now let's go!

    The all purpose thread to discuss all things related to the Fantastic Four and the Future Foundation, from fan art to actual art to fan fiction.


    From the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of existence itself, the Fantastic Four have touched it all. They've been superheroes, parents, teachers, explorers, and gods.

    They're the Fantastic Four.

    Fantastic Four #4 - the introduction of Namor the Sub-Mariner into the Silver Age
    Fantastic Four #5 - first appearance of Doctor Doom

    [QUOTE=Mike]Besides the Lee/Kirby/Romita/Buscema and the Byrne run.
    A very underappreciated run is the Thomas/Wein/Wolfman run from the late '70s.

    Happy New Year! Thank goodness!

    And a great year for FF fans with the 60th Anniversary! Can't wait to see what Marvel does for their Fantastic Family!





    I need to find this logo. Actually, I need a pin of this logo!

    Hoping for really big things this year for the team!

    An amazing animated show is at the top of the list for me.

    2021 and the FF.

    It does seem that Marvel is giving more pages to the four and that pleases me. One can certainly hope it's due to the upcoming 60th anniversary, but the upcoming movie is far more of a likely spark. Still, the FF were the first to give Marvel the different take they took on superheroing and it is 100% fact that much of the Marvel Universe itself was born from that original Lee/Kirby run.

    Indeed, next month marks the 50th anniversary of my FF collecting as the run I have been buying for issue 110 on continues. Let we who love these characters continue to share our thoughts about them and the multiverse they had a major role in creating (literally).

    Yes, indeed! Here's hoping we see Marvel appreciating that fact in their 60th Anniversary year.

    Such a great idea! Get the fans young, and appease us old timers with lots of QUALITY stories. TV shows just have so much more time to develop the characters and animation allows the imagination to run free without breaking the bank for special effects.

    Congrats! Time flies, doesn't it? I haven't been collecting quite as long, but almost.

    Oh, wait! You should make a logo for your anniversary!

    Has Slott been granted an advance preview of the Doctor Who episode that just aired? Because he accidentally copied it's ending last issue.

    This year marks the 60th anniversary of the greatest superhero family of all time(sorry Incredibles). May better times lay ahead for this great property.

    Holy cow. This sounds like a mess. I think the FF dodged a giant bullet on this one.

    I'd like to see an ongoing series as well as DTV cartoon movies based on past storylines. as far as TV outlets, they should consider Disney+, Freeform, Hulu, etc.

    If F4 gets another animation, it better be on par with Earth's Mightiest Heroes or Spectacular Spidey. The recent Disney stuff is crap.
