The Fourth Factor, my Version of the Fantastic Four

The Fourth Factor, my Version of the Fantastic Four

Fantastic FourΒ homage teamΒ Fan Art. I was watching the old FF cartoon, from the 60s when I had the idea to remake the team. Each is an almost an opposite of the original.

Professor Prism is hard and rigid. He’s inflexible yet has no problem expressing his thoughts and feelings.

Full Spectrum will blind her foes. Being blind herself, she is unharmed by her own powers. She also uses infrared light as an echo location ability.

Winter Storm… pretty self-explanatory.

The Goo is soft, invulnerable, and can envelop any threat.

Jack Kirby was the master if the dynamic action comic book cover. He usually had a primary subject with some smaller secondaries or interesting background elements. These are some of the most engaging covers that make you was to purchase the book as they demanded attention.

Fantastic Four Cover Homage & The Cover’s Possible Origin?

I went down the rabbit hole of cover homages to the first appearance of Marvel’s first family, Fantastic Four No. 1 (1961), by Jack Kirby. It was a fun romp full of exciting takes on the cover’s composition. There were many fan made homages to wade through, but I wanted to only include industry printed covers. I would say that John Byrne is the biggest fan of the cover, judging by how many homages he has rendered.

I was really hoping that DC would have done at least one homage to this cover but… wait, hold on… I may have found one…

So, yeah… I feel like this cover, featuring the first appearance of the Justic League of America is the origin to Jack’s Fantastic Four cover. It’s no wonder, since Atlas publisher Martin Goodman mentioned the team-up book to Stan Lee.

So, You Want an Epic Fantastic Four? We Got That!
FF 236 was my first JBFF and I read it over and over.

If you really want a good cinematic version of the Fantastic Four, you have to do yourself a huge favor and pick up the entire John Byrne run on the book. It spans issues #232 – #295, from July 1981 – October 1986. This is a real treat, and it cements Mr. Byrne’s legendary role as both an artist and writer of epic comics.

The Marvel Treasury Edition was an oversized comic book that usually contained one hundred pages of comic classic goodness. Often these were old stories reprinted in a larger format or new content. Either way, they were the biggest bang for your buck.
