The Fantastic Four has been around for 50 years, and over the course of that time, they’ve tweaked and changed their look to adapt to the times and reflect the state of the world that they are so instrumental in building. The team’s had so many iterations and compositions over the years that it’s important to remember that despite the Four’s status as the rock upon which Marvel was built, they’ve always been changing and adapting and growing.
The Fantastic Four has long been my favorite superhero team, and this article chronicling their costumes is great.
The Walt Simonson era of the FF is what I think of when I think of the comic book. The cover above is one that instantly transports me back to the Dragon’s Den on Central Avenue looking through the Mylar bagged books for a deal (which I was never going to find, but still it was all about the hunt!).
