The Marvel NOW! announcements continue as USA Today has the scoop on the new direction for Marvel’s first family. Writer Matt Fraction will move on from The Invincible Iron Man and The Mighty Thor to take over Fantastic Four and FF.
Artist Mark Bagley joins Fraction on Fantastic Four and Mike Allred brings his indie sensibilities to FF. The basic set-up? Reed takes the family away from Earth and an educational road trip that spans not only the galaxy but time as well. While they’re gone he doesn’t want to leave his home without a Fantastic Four to protect it so he enlists Ant-Man (Scott Lang), She-Hulk, Medusa and a new character (in the Thing costume) to act as the new Fantastic Four in their absence.
“This is the place to be wildly inventive, and I would like to put as many things down on the page as humanly possible,” Fraction said. “And offer up another dose next issue.”
