PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I am editing this post over a number of weeks until they stop submitting new covers to the media, I will not add much to the mix since it would get me confused. I am glad they are doing this with a team such as the Fantastic Four as they truly deserve it and who knows. Perhaps one day we shall find the team back into the hands of the folks at Disney and joining the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Pipe dreams sure, but if they can work out something with Sony Pictures and use Spider-Man, can the Fantastic Four be too far behind. Since I never know when you readers will see these covers, I will simply ask which ones you think you will add to your collection. Depending on who we see might find me doing the same since it’s a first issue. Okay until next time.
