    I'm sure Barry will be on it for a review.

    I wonder if this means the live action version is in the works.

    From my collection.

    the.FF was the first comic of the Marvel age. It introduced many concepts that are now common in Comics. For example, the FF Started the concept of a family of superheroes which we also see in the X-Men. The concept that a monster can be your hero, which we see in the Hulk, started here. The fantastic four did not have secret identities. But Stan Lee and Jack Kirby elevated the reading levels of Comics starting with this collection. The fantastic four was stopped not because of bad sales but because fox now on the rights to the pictures and Disney wanted them back. Disney then was not going to promote Anything that FOX did. The comic book is probably coming back because there is no movie in progress.

    When Disney owns Fox, I'm sure this will get a full reboot.

    I guess "the incredibles" would be the successor for the Fantastic four.

    Are there other family super heroes?

    The. Incredibles borrowed and even satirized a great deal from the FF.
    The X-men had several family units. Batman and Robin, Green Arrow and Speedy, Aquaman snd Aqualad even Captain America and Bucky had family elements.

    Superman had his cousin, Supergirl.

    thor had Thor’s brother, Loki, his father , Odin and mother.

    the Sub-Mariner had cousins.

    But the Ff had not just a brother and sister, but a husband and wife and baby.

    I always liked the Jessica Alba Fantastic Four movie. Seemed to mostly get things right (tho I never read the comic) and was a fun, silly superhero movie. The shoddy costumes and FX make them even more fun for me.

    2nd one was OK.

    Barry, thoughts? Seems like those older FF movies never got much love. Curious what a true believer thinks-
