As well as Fantastic Four #25 getting R.B. Silva as its new ongoing artist, fresh from Powers Of X and Empyre: Avengers, and Mark Brooks as its regular cover artist, Marvel is promising a permanent change to the status quo of the Fantastic Four in their October solicits. In the promotion for Empyre, Dan Slott promised big changes to the Fantastic Four, and this may well be where we are getting it.
- We notice that the Skrull kid survived Wolverine's attack in the recent Fantastic Four – could it have been whatever they saw in Alicia Masters, who was once impersonated by Lyja the Skrull and who married Johnny Storm? Could all that be retconned and Alicia revealed to have always been a Skrull after all?
- Or maybe, considering that Doctor Doom is guest-starring, that Doom and Richards swap brains, giving us a Superior Mister Fantastic? Would that make him a Mister Even More Fantastic?
- Could Ben Grimm and Johnny Storm somehow swap power sets on a permanent basis going forward?
- Maybe it could be revealed that Mister Fantastic is a clone and his mind has been stored as an AI in HERBIE all this time?
- Or that Susan Storm goes invisible permanently?
- The Human Torch finds God?
- The Thing runs for President of the United States and gets to run those orange monster jokes previously denied him?
Wait till October… or suggest some of your own possibilities in the comments below.
