To celebrate the 700th issue of Fantastic Four, writer Ryan North and artist Iban Coello are turning the team’s greatest villain, Doctor Doom, into their only hope. In this over-sized issue, Doom will attempt to undo the unknown catastrophe that caused the team to break up and become hated by the Marvel Universe. He will journey across time and space to achieve this feat, but Marvel teases that his possible failure could have disastrous consequences.
The upcoming anniversary issue will also reveal what exactly the team did that broke them up and destroyed the Baxter Building, which is set to be revealed in Fantastic Four #4 out on Feb. 15. Furthermore, the issue will give the reunited Fantastic Four a new home, one where Doom will be waiting for them. North explained, “Doom demands nothing less than the biggest issue of the year being dedicated to him, and I dare not defy Doom. 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…”
