Earlier in the week, ComicsAlliance announced that Marvel has provided us with an early look at the variant covers for issues 2-5
of the new 'FF' series from Matt Fraction and Mike Allred, launching in November
as part of the publisher's Marvel NOW initiative
. Each cover, drawn by Allred, showcases one of the new members of the FF. When put together, they form one image of the entire team. Monday we showed you the Ant-Man cover
, and yesterday the spotlight was on Medusa
. Today's variant, for issue #4, features a brand new character created by Fraction and Allred for the series: Miss Thing!
Check out the full image after the cut!
Unlike her teammates, Miss Thing is very
new to the superhero world. Each member of the Fantastic Four was tasked with picking someone to join the FF before they leave on a year-long trip, and Miss Thing was the Human Torch's choice. As Fraction put it in a recent interview with USA Today
, "Johnny spaces it because he's Johnny," so he chooses the "Lohan-esque celebutante blonde" he just happens to be with the night before he and his teammates leave. "She's the regular person, she's the human, she's the overwhelmed 'Whaaa?' of it all," says Fraction.
Come back tomorrow for a look the variant to issue #5, featuring the final member of the team, and to take a look at the full image of all four covers together.
