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
Anyone else ever been in a court room, representing a ghost or maybe Spider-Man, and just dying to change into She-Hulk?
But you can’t because your boss really wants you to stay regular old Jennifer Walters? But then he screws up by letting a bunch of miniaturized super-villains escape from a high-tech prison? Yeah, me neither.
Join us as we read She-Hulk 1-6 from 2004!
Next Time: Marvel Weddings (Fantastic Four Annual #3, Amazing Spider-Man Annual #21, X-Men #30)
It’s the mid-2000’s revival that nobody asked for! But hot damn was it amazing. It’s Squirrel Girl! And she joined the Great Lakes Avengers in a little miniseries called GLA: Misassembled.
But then they became the GLX (because X-Men, duh) and so then there was a GLX-Mas one-shot special and we just went ahead and read the whole damn thing.
There’s a death in every single issue, surely that will put you in the holiday spirit!
