If they're not bringing Aunt Petunia back from the dead or rewriting Stan and Jack's original, Dan Slott, Aaron Kuder, Michael Allred, Adam Hughes and friends have been setting up the next big setup for the Fantastic Four – and Doctor Doom.
Classically the Fantastic Four's greatest foe, after the events of Secret Wars, Brian Bendis gave Doom a redemptive arc, becoming the Infamous Iron Man and keeping his altruistic nature – to a degree. Dan Slott's Fantastic Four has seen Doom hailed as a revolutionary hero in Latveria and it looks like with issue 6 of the Fantastic Four, he's going to save the world. As long as Latveria is in that world… and after all, he does have a kid on the way.
And some bragging to do as well in the process…
Galactus is back. The original Galactus. Remember, Fantastic Four #6 has the first of the polybagged mystery covers, and the first one retailers are getting for free... so there is something worth hiding.
So… does it feel really really natural in the near future for Doctor Doom and The Superior Spider-Man to team up as a superhero duo? And for Slott to feature them both in FF now?
