I still haven’t read the recent return of the Fantastic Four, but I’m one hundred percent on-board with the decision to return black uniforms.  For many years, the FF wore powder blue uniforms that looked okay, but the John Byrne-era retake of the same fifties-future jumpsuit with white-on-black unstable molecules rather than black-on-blue was a game-changer for me.  I know you can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can often judge a Fantastic Four reboot by it’s redesigns, leading to today’s coverall query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) still hates the James Robinson-era red uniforms completely, though, asking: How do you prefer the FF’s uniforms of unstable molecules: Black or Blue?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
