FF's lineup is certainly the most surprising part of the story. Gone are the Richards kids and their freaky friends. Instead, the Future Foundation team will be lead by Ant-Man, with She-Hulk (Jen type), Medusa the queen of the Inhumans, and Miss Thing, a new human character wearing a Thing suit backing him up. The kids, Valeria and Franklin, will move into the main Fantastic Four book, where Fraction and Bagley will take them on "a journey through time and space," says USA Today's report. The two books will be intertwined, but not in a strict story sense. The main title will be heavy into the idea of this unit being much more than just a team. "It's the first family, and we're putting family first," Fraction told USA Today. He'll be taking the family, kids and all, on a field trip all over history for a one-year trip that lasts four minutes on Earth. "If they're studying ancient Rome, then by God let's go have lunch with Caesar on the Ides of March. If they're looking at the Big Bang, they're going to watch it from the front row," said Fraction. Thanks to the "trip" format, every issue will be a one-and-done adventure.
"If this could be the Pixar version of the Fantastic Four, something that everyone can enjoy, not just our medium 30-year-old white-dude reader, I'd be happy."More Marvel NOW!
