A few days ago, Marvel brought us the news that Marvel’s “First Family” was coming back to monthly comics. When they first faded away back in 2015, I wrote a column that I was fine with them taking a break until the House of Ideas put together a concept that would be worth the time and money. I’m hoping they’ve made that happen.
Season 2 of ‘Agents Of SHIELD’ hit recently, and once again we’re getting references to The Inhumans, one of several hidden populations of super-types in the Marvel Universe. But what’s their deal and where do they come from? Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Fantastic Four #45 awaits!
The great philosopher Barnabus Stinson was once heard to remark: “Nothing suits me like a suit.” He would be proud to know how many supers appreciate this sage wisdom… Welcome to Ten Things!

With Daredevil poised to hit Netflix and Marvel poised to develop their streaming properties there are lot of exciting possibilities for characters and teams to come to the small screen that didn’t exist even two year ago. With that in mind, Major Spoilers humbly present you with Top 5 Comic Properties Marvel Needs to Develop for Netflix: #5. HEROES FOR HIRE “But, there’s going to be a Defenders series!” Sure, that’s awesomely well and good, but imagine this as the first team-up between Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones, very street level and using Jessica’s office they create
Or – “What’s The Deal With Medusa?” In the first five issues of this book, the makeshift Fantastic Four team has taken over the Future Foundation, crossed swords with the Mole Man, discovered the original team to be dead (or, at least, so says a maimed and aged Johnny Storm) and decided to take on Doctor Doom. Also, one of their members is acting shady as heck, and the cover this month has foreboding written all over it. What’s next? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “Is You Is, Or Is You Ain’t My Torchy?” Their tenure was only supposed to last for four minutes… At least, that was the plan. Weeks later, the interim FF team has been attacked by super-villains, lambasted by the media, and surprised to find that one member of their sister team HAS returned, albeit later than expected. Is his tale of the death of the original Fantastic Four true? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “I Love How This Book Feels Like A Lost Silver Age Marvel Comic…” No matter what you think about Mike Allred (and he is, apparently, more controversial than I thought as a penciler) the idea behind this book is kinda delightful. The hand-picked backup concept gives credence to the idea that a group of second-tier heroes (and one dilettante) could stand in for the Fantastic Four, and Fractions’s character work made issue #1 a must-read for me. What’s in store for the FF in #2, and will the original Four return on time? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “A Whole New Start…” I admit to being a little bit conflicted about this new FF #1. On the one hand, I’m totally psyched about the teaming of Fraction & Allred, about the characters at play here, and about a new wrinkle for the Future Foundation. On the other, I’m not sure that I think FF has run its course sufficiently to need a reboot or a relaunch… Either way, your Major Spoilers review awaits!
