Still bitter over losing his beloved Susan Storm to the Sub-Mariner, Mr. Fantastic brings the fight to Atlantis. Bill Mantlo serves up a decent sequel to What If? #1, with a little help from the art team of Gene Colan and Bill Wiacek.
In an alternate universe observed by the Watcher, a young Spider-Man becomes a paid member of the FF. The concept is stronger than the execution, with writer/editor Roy Thomas embracing his inner fanboy, aided by penciler Jim Craig.
Cosmic rays give birth to a team of heroes known as the Fantastic Four: Big Brain, Dragonfly, Mandroid and Ultra-Woman! Roy Thomas is at the helm of this excellent alternate-universe take on Marvel’s first family.
