With the death of Johnny Storm a few weeks ago, and Fantastic Four set to end with the next issue, and be replaced with FF #1, with not much known about it….until now.
Written by Jonathan Hickman, FF is going to stand for Future Foundation, the group of super minds assembled by Reed earlier in Hickman’s Fantastic Four run, and will star The Thing, Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Woman, and the Amazing Spider-Man, as well as some “top secret team members” to save the Marvel Universe from some if its biggest threats!
A new title also brings new uniforms, featuring a very different color scheme for the traditionally blue Fantastic Four, going with a white and black look with the Future Foundation logo instead of the traditional “4”.

March’s FF #1 Launches Star Studded New Super Hero Team
New York, NY – February 9, 2011— There is no more Fantastic Four, so just what is the FF? This March, the superstar creative team of Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting present the over-sized FF #1, introducing the biggest new super hero team of the century! After the death of the Human Torch, the surviving members of the Fantastic Four—Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman & Thing—join with Spider-Man and some top secret members to form an unstoppable force: The Future Foundation. Their mission is simple: save the Marvel Universe from its greatest threats and prevent future dangers from arising. But even with knowledge of what’s to come and one of the most powerful teams ever assembled, just what villainous force could stand in their way?
“FF will alter the very fabric of the Marvel Universe,” explained Tom Brevoort, Senior Vice President of Publishing. “Jonathan and Steve have crafted a unique, powerful new series that’s going to surprise a lot of fans with its combination of mind-blowing ideas and visuals.”
