Fifty years ago today, Fantastic Four #1 was released. To commemorate this anniversary, Marvel has released a teaser image for Fantastic Four #1…launching in November. This comes after Marvel killed off Johnny Storm and cancelled the long-running book just a few months ago.
While there’s nothing known about the new Fantastic Four, such as whether or not Johnny is coming back from the dead, does this seem insulting to anyone else? Cancelling the book, and then announcing the relaunch on the 50th Anniversary of the original series’ launch, almost comes off as a massive middle finger to readers of Fantastic Four.
