Ryan North and Iban Coello will help fans celebrate Fantastic Four #700 this May with a giant-sized brawl with their most frequent adversary Doctor Victor Von Doom.
The 700th legacy issue arrives on May 17 in the recently relaunched title’s 7th issue, and will see Doom try to drive an irreconcilable wedge between Marvel’s First Family.
The landmark issue will also see the FF set up a new secret base of operations as they contend with challenges that they haven’t faced in all of their history.
North feels “…privileged to be writing the Fantastic Four at any time, honestly, but getting to have a big milestone issue happen on my watch is certainly lucky—and it’s an opportunity I didn’t want to waste. A big anniversary issue like this demands a similarly big story, something meaningful, impactful, and memorable. And given that it’s a supersized issue with more room to play, everything aligned to do a story with the Fantastic Four’s most meaningful, impactful, memorable, and supersized villain: Doctor Doom.”
North also hinted at aspects of the new story arc, saying that “It’s a big twisty story that brings the Fantastic Four to their new home and views what’s happened to both families over the past year in a new light. The Fantastic Four are down, but not out, and Doom senses an opportunity…”
The 700th issue also comes with a stunning cover by Alex Ross, featuring Doom and the Four center stage, with many of their most powerful friends being kept at bay by a force field.
