There is a tendency within the world of comics to want to constantly ‘one-up’ the stories that have gone before, to get more cosmic/brutal/strange/horrific with each iteration of a given title. Nowhere is this more prominent than in the case of the Fantastic Four. Once the hub of all activity in the Marvel Universe, the Richards family and various hangers-on are often treated as a quaint relic of the Silver Age rather than as an awesome action-adventure series. (Of course, part of this comes from creators afraid or unable to one-up Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s original hundred-and-four issue FF canvas.) With Jonathan Hickman exiting the book, Matt Fraction takes up the writing reins of the Fantastic ones, with some big shoes to fill. How’s the debut issue? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!

As Jonathan Hickman wraps up his run on Fantastic Four, he’s been hunting down loose threads like a tailor with OCD. The Human Torch is back from the dead. Reed’s ex-girlfriend got blasted to the far side of the universe (cue 90’s stand-up comedian, “Am I right, guys?”). What about that super-villain clone that Reed invited into his house? Nothing could go wrong there, could it? We’ll begin to learn the answer to that question as we review Fantastic Four #610.
