Marvel really does seem to be putting a promotional point of emphasis on new character appearances. The latest hype? “The Fantastix”
Says Tom Brevoort:
As we get back to things down on Earth, we introduce a new team of Super Heroes who are operating out of the Baxter Building who are surprised when the Fantastic Four show up on the doorstep, thinking that they still have the rent on the place.
Right now, they’re just releasing the cover as a teaser, so we’ll have to wait and see if this is a one-off appearance or something more. It’s entirely possible if the Fantastix catch on, someone might write a musical about them.
Todd Allen wears a lot of hats. At various times he’s been (alphabetically), a bouncer, college professor, humor columnist, Internet producer and an NBA/WNBA Beat Writer, among other things. He’s the author of Economics of Digital Comics. You should probably read it.
