‘The Bride of Doom’ Storyline Kicks off a Wild Year for the Fantastic Four

Writer Dan Slott and artist R.B. Silva continue their memorable run on Fantastic Four with an unexpected wedding of the team’s arch-nemesis, Victor Von Doom!

The story begins in May’s Fantastic Four #32 and will not only include Doom’s wedding (and the identity of his mystery bride), but also a difficult choice for Johnny Storm, who must choose between his soulmate and his ex-wife, The Inhuman’s Crystal.

This story is just the start for Slott and Silva, who inch closer to the First Family of Marvel’s 60th Anniversary this August with plenty more surprises. Editor Tom Brevoort is excited for fans to see where the Fantastic Four are headed this year, as “Dan and RB are working to make the Fantastic Four’s 60th Anniversary a nonstop thrill ride for fans, one that touches on all aspects of the FF’s world and re-establishes them as the cornerstone players of the Marvel Universe. Expect some big surprises, status quo changes and shocking revelations in the months ahead—to say nothing of the return of some classic villains that readers have been asking for!”

If you want a hint, check out an all-new teaser piece by Valerio Schiti which foreshadows the Fantastic Four’s action-packed year as well as Mark Brooks’ cover to FF #32.
