FF:1 Review.

Posted by whiteshark 15 April 2011

The stories of the Fantastic Four as they were in the past have come to an end. The Future Foundation is the next step, and the future of the team that pretty much started the modern Marvel stories way back in the 60s.
Sure there were reformulations in the team in the past (As periods of time in which Crystal,She-Hulk,Black Panther and Storm replaced the original members of Fantastic Four).
But this time around it is not simple a change of members.
Johny Storm took on a whole Annihilation wave by himself to save the members of Fantastic Four,but died as a result of it. Spider-Man as asked by Human Torch himself in a old recording went to replace him which really makes sense considering the mutual history of Spidey and Fantastic Four.
Yet this is more of a new Fantastic Four title with new members.
The same ideas and mentality that kept the team together through the years has been pushed forward harder. The ambitions of the team also seem to be broader now.
entrance of the friendly Spider-Man in the team seems to diminish.
Reed and Sue are just trying to get their minds off the death of Johny by keeping themselves busy. The Thing is blaming himself for what happened to Johnny and is having the most grim characterization that I remember the character having.
Spider-Man is dealing with normal problems of self-adjusting in a team of super heroes, and replacing Johny.
Besides the challenges of making the ideas of Future Foundation work,there is a renegade team of members of A.I.M. that will surelly create lots of headaches to the FF and in this first issue recruit a very dangerous ally (Wizard).

So this first issue of FF is a well crafted story both in the plot and art,and makes this new ongoing title to me, one of the most interesting Marvel comic books.

Spider-Man costumes pt 2

Posted by bps

I once did a blog post on the different Spider-Man costumes worn by Spidey up to 2009. I may have missed a few, but I got most of them. Check out Spider-Man Costumes pt 1. Recently however, more specifically, since Big Time, Peter Parker has gotten a new job at Horizon Labs, giving him time and resources to create new Spider-Man Costumes.

Firstly, we have Spider-Man's invisible costume which he first wore in Amazing Spider-Man 650. Take note that this issue came out somewhere around the same time the remake the Tron Legacy- the movie was released.

In Amazing Spider-Man 651, we find out that this suit can also change from Invisibility mode, to "silence out every super sonic frequency" mode. This suit was designed to fight the new Hobgoblin - Phil Urich. 

Did I mention that this costume can also change to another mode where it emits florescent light! I really have no idea what this costume does, but yea. 

In Amazing Spider-Man 656, Spider-Man, after losing his Spider-sense, realizes that he can't dodge bullets anymore. As such, he creates a bullet proof costume. 

Just when you think there can't be any more costumes in such few issues, Spider-Man joins the FF - former Fantastic Four, and is given a new costume again. This costume can change its appearance at will power and is made of unstable molecules. The default mode is obviously the white one to match the rest of the team.

The image above takes place in FF#1. In Amazing Spider-Man 658 however, Spider-Man, apparently left his costume behind at the FF Headquarters. He then appears there on his first mission with the FF with another of his own costumes. 

So these are the new Spider-Man up to ASM 658. I post a Spider-Man Costumes pt 3 as soon as we see Spidey in another 5 costumes. 

Be sure to check out Spider-Man costumes pt 1
