Doctor Doom loves to steal powers!
After touching on it in our last episode, we wanted to see more of his crazy schemes, so we went back to Fantastic Four 57-60 from the mid 1960s to watch him steal the Silver Surfer’s cosmic powers.
Ol’ Stan and Jack really had a good time with this one.
We also continued our read of Crisis on Infinite Earths with issue #3 which is getting slightly easier to understand. Slightly.
Next Time: FF (2012) #4-8 – “Fantastic Faux”
We heard that Black Panther was kind of a big deal (btw, check out last week’s spoilercast about the movie), so this week we’re looking at his short-lived stint as the leader of the Fantastic Four.
Written in 2007 by Dwayne McDuffie (Damage Control, Static Shock, much of the DC Animated Universe), Fantastic Four 544-550 finds the the titular team in disarray after Civil War. Reed and Sue take a break from the team, so the newly-married T’Challa and Storm join up with Johnny and Ben to fight classic foes like the Silver Surfer and the Frightful Four.
Doctor Strange, the Watchers, and Klaw also make guest appearances!
Next Time: Gotham by Gaslight
Time travel & alternate universes, robot Josef Stalins, and triceratopses — all the silly staples of any good Fantastic Four story.
On today’s SOMFRC, the gang reads Fantastic Four #343-346 – written and drawn by the great Walt Simonson (Thor, Detective Comics). But is this story as fantastic as our eponymous foursome??
