It’s a wonder that Spider-Man has time to menace poor ol’ Mr. Jameson when he has so many damn jobs. I mean, the guy’s on the Avengers, the New Avengers, he’s currently teamed up with the X-Men in their adjectiveless title and now he’s taking on full time status (I think) as the new member of the FF. Oh yeah, let’s not forget that Spidey also has a FULL TIME JOB at Modell Labs, where he designs all kinds of tech all day long.
The current run on Fantastic Four ends with issue #588, and the current creative team, Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting, will be moving on to FF #1 in March. Seems like they’re not really waiting till the body’s cold (and with the Human Torch, it might be a while…heh) before they ask Spidey to join the team. The new FF stands for Future Foundation, and, according to Marvel, “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?”
Coolest thing? Those snazzy costumes. Except that it’s only got three hexagons on it – kind of a slight to the fourth member, don’t you think? Just sayin’. Wouldn’t those costumes get dirty? And is Ben Grimm’s new costume going to be a pair of tighty whities, or some white boxers?
