Marvel Just Can't Stop Torturing The Fantastic Four, Can They? (Secret Wars Spoilers)


Time Runs Out and Secret Wars #1 are about the end of the world. The end of the Marvel Universe, and the Ultimate Universe as the Earths from each collide with the other, destroying both. You can see it begin to play out in these previews pages.


But in Secret Wars, for Mr Fantastic, he finally discovers what the end of the world actually means… it's not just the Fantastic Four licence being withdrawn, toys and posters cancelled, trading cards withdrawn and the comic being cancelled over a conflict between Marvel and Fox Studios. Now it gets very, very personal… with the rest of his family….

Groot can survive. Rocket? Not so much…
