Marvel Announces that Spiderman will be joining the Fantastic Four?

Fantastic Four #587 was released on January 26, 2011. This is the day Marvel Fans would learn that a famous character would be departing the Marvel Universe, "Johnny" Human Torch Storm who was part of the Fantastic Four. The issue came in a special black sealed bag with a Big "3" and we thought that the team would later be known as the Terrific 3. 

In a huge press release on February 9th, Marvel announced some very big news. Well, the Fantastic Four would be no more, right? Spider-Man has had a big part in helping the Fantastic Four in the past and what could be more of a surprise then Spider-Man joining the team to form a group known as the Future Foundation (FF). The FF #1 will go on sale in March, 2011 and will include a few covers. Below are two of the covers that released in Marvel's press release last week. 

Marvel has released another press release today that ties Spider-Man into the FF team. In issues Amazing Spider-Man #658 and #659, we will see how Spider-Man will tie into his new team.  Both covers are below with information on the prices and release dates of the FF#1, and the Amazing Spider-Man #658 and #659, which will be on sale in April 2011.

I will be honest about the press release last week,  I was not sure I liked the look of the new white costumes for the Fantastic Four or the new white Spider-Man suit. After today's Marvel press release and seeing the Amazing Spider-Man covers I feel a little more positive about seeing this change in the Marvel Universe.
