    This should have been so much more! Slott re-imagines... the origin of the Fantastic Four!

I expected more from Slott after his Amazing and Superior Spider-man magic! 6 out of 12, for the innovative concept this story is built around.

    This was a really great story, one that could be up there with my favourite FF tales, that explores a side of the team’s origin that I’m absolutely amazed nobody has ever thought to deal with before but, MAN, this book is suffering from the lack of a regular artist! I totally understand the need to bring in a fill-in artist occasionally but when you have three different artists in the same issue, it really hurts the book. All the artists used here are very good but their styles clash and really This was a really great story, one that could be up there with my favourite FF tales, that explores a side of the team’s origin that I’m absolutely amazed nobody has ever thought to deal with before but, MAN, this book is suffering from the lack of a regular artist!

    We really don't need any more F4 origin retcons. We really don't. This one had potential, I'll admit, but it goes on for FAR too long, and doesn't go anywhere at all aside from dragging a new character along for the ride back to Earth. Splitting the Four seems like a way of tapping more of the story beats out of the world of Spyre, but it really just means we get more of characters we're not attached to and have no reason to get attached to because they're almost entirely unlikeable.

The artwork is also all over the shop. Sean Izaakse and Paco Medina do the heavy lifting, and both are fantastic, but there are also what feels like dozens of fill-ins, with sometimes five or six artists on one issue. F4 has struggled majorly with finding a consistent art team, and unfortunately this volume doesn't manage to get past this either. I've really enjoyed Dan Slott's F4 so far, but I really couldn't wait for this arc to be over with. A mega speed bump in the road.

    This could've been really special, but felt incredibly rushed, story and artwise. This could've been really special, but felt incredibly rushed, story and artwise.

    Somehow I missed reading Vol. 4. Not sure if anything important happened, but this volume seems to start off with a clean slate. It begins really well, revisiting the initial flight of the four that gave them their powers. It's one of those stories that keeps all the facts of the origin the same built adds a different perspective and layer to it. Two issues in I'm liking where it is headed. This is more what I expected from Slott who can be very creative and innovative at times. Unfortunately, the Somehow I missed reading Vol. 4.

Unfortunately, the story devolves into generic comic book drama, preset reactions from characters and standard fisticuffs. A few moments were nice: Reed and Sue, jokes about Johnny's previous love life. But it all just felt really rushed once it got started. The art changes dramatically and frequently which is a shame. So far, Slott's run has been less than fantastic.

    So yet again it was not a mistake that created Fantastic Four? But it was a mighty powerful being weaponizing cosmic rays. Ok.... we go with that now. So-so art companies the story that tries to sell me that. Loads of fighting, loads and loads of talking about it and about family values. Meh.

    The best of the Dan Slott series so far. Humor, heart, action and heroics - the four fantastic things that makes the FF one of my all=time favorite series.

    Malum

    A silly origin retcon, a bunch of bland enemies, and a new member of the team (who is also really bland). This whole story arc just felt really drawn out and unnecessary.

    Despise. Sky. Get. Her. Out. Of. This. Book. Johnny has had enough girlfriends, superpowered and otherwise, as it is. Throwing in some throwaway character without any connection to the Marvel universe at all? Whose powers aren't even that cool? (She could be summed up as, "bird-like") No. Just, no. Otherwise, the writers tried way too hard to hit us over the head with the idea that Reed wasn't really responsible for what happened to the Thing, in getting his powers.

    Marvel's First Family gets a slight retcon to their origin story when they decide to make the Marvel-2, which they will use to complete the first mission they undertook but never achieved. Arriving on the planet Spyre, we meet a society who saw the coming of the "Four-Told" as an invasion of their planet and their way of life. Their leader, called Overseer, helped create a team of superheroes called "The Unparalleled" to defend them. But Overseer has two other secrets: 1) The process used to cre Marvel's First Family gets a slight retcon to their origin story when they decide to make the Marvel-2, which they will use to complete the first mission they undertook but never achieved. Arriving on the planet Spyre, we meet a society who saw the coming of the "Four-Told" as an invasion of their planet and their way of life. Their leader, called Overseer, helped create a team of superheroes called "The Unparalleled" to defend them. But Overseer has two other secrets: 1) The process used to create Unparalleled also turned some of the members of their society into the monsters that now populate the underground. AND 2) Out of fear for the loss of power and control by the arrival of aliens, Overseer is the one who was able to manipulate the cosmic forces towards the Marvel-1, and is actually responsible for giving the Fantastic Four their powers (This is the slight retcon part.). After several battles and eventual teamwork, they work out a peace and a kind of cure. One other element of the Spyre society, is their adoption of soulmates via a cosmic scope. Obviously, it is shown that Reed and Sue are soulmates, but a surprise comes when Johnny finds his soulmate in Kaila, one of the Unparalleled, known as Sky due to her wings and powers related to talking to birds. Sky returns with the team when they come back to Earth. When arriving home, Johnny and Kaila head off to help Wyatt Wingfoot and the reservation he lives on. They are having trouble with Moloids and the arrival of MoleMan. Sky is able to communicate with the T-Rexes MoleMan is using (avian descent) and help achieve the peace. Overall a good Volume, but I wonder how long this thing with Sky will last and how the team will play into the upcoming Empyre. Recommend.

    I've had mixed feelings about the Dan Slott run for Fantastic Four since some of the stories have felt a little hit or miss, depending on where your interests slant.

But the man is great at nostalgia and celebrating the legacy stories of the titles he works on, as evidenced by his long run with Spider-Man. This book is a gem and starts with an effort to sort of commemorating the original mission that led to the Fantastic Four getting their strange powers to a far-flung adventure on a distant world that somehow fulfilled the original mission that had first set out to do. And what started as a strange encounter that was part misunderstanding and part dread prophecy evolved into a more complex story that changed the team's origin story to some degree, but potentially for the better. I really enjoyed this story from start to finish and they did a great job with keeping things sort of light, especially with the Reed and Sue banter and of course the sort of incredulous view everyone has as Johnny's latest "soulmate", given his colorful history with other women. Just a really fun adventure and a great addition to the overall series.

    This was fun but a little forced. Forced because we find out that this new planet the FF journey to (I am still not clear why they were headed for THAT planet and had never gone to it before now) had a hand in their origin story. It was revisionist history that didn't make a whole lot of sense. I liked the fact this planet had its own hero squad and some of the interactions between that squad and Johnny and Ben but the reason for the FF being there and the history of the planet - it was forced.

Also - there is a subplot of Wingfoot (I have never understood his character - he was introduced in the Kirby Lee days and I was always confused by him - why does he hang around the FF?) and the Mole Man which was just weird and over before any drama was built up. So - not my favorite Slott, FF or FF by Slott, but mildly enjoyable.

    When i started reading this it felt like the title was getting stale. I read up to the issue where the Unparalleled would appear and put it down for a week or so. I picked it back up to finish it today and figured I would be droping the title from my trade buying list. Instead i was really blown away from the rest of this trade. From the point the Unparalleled appear this book is top notch. Its rare a group of powered people are invented for a story that I enjoy this much.

If you have made it to volume 4 and are thinking of dropping this book I say "don't" and definitely grab this volume.

    I'm wanting to like this run. But this story was just pretty... terrible comes to mind. I'm also waiting to like Slott's post-Spider-Man work (FF and Iron Man). But it just feels like he can't find his footing with these other characters in the Marvel universe. I keep hoping THIS next issue will finally be the one. I'm wanting to like this run.

    *I’ve read a lot more than I’ve reviewed... so one sentence takeaways!* Solid FF story--nice action, nice attention given to the characters and their journey--a real callback to their origin while also giving readers something new and fun to enjoy.

    Started off very strong, but kept getting gradually worse with each issue. Ending was quite rushed but paved the ways for some future stories. Don't mind the retcon, but I really doubt it will stick after Slott is finished with this series. Started off very strong, but kept getting gradually worse with each issue.

    I have really wanted to like no love the Slott run. But I am really left wanting what was promised a family story about exploration. This volume left we frustrated as the four without family explored and an origin I saw no reason to retcon beyond what Stan and Jack gave us is tinkered with.

    Es dificil no comparar estos 4F con los de Hickman. Slott no me termina de convencer. Hasta ahora solo su arco con Dr Doom ha mostrado algo relevante.

    Story took way too long and the “twists” were obvious. Potentially an interesting addition to the new status quo. Not sure what the point of it all is.
