    Ultimately, this book has everything a Fantastic Four book should have. Wild sci-fi ideas, interesting characters that interact in believable ways, some fun action, and an ending that will leave you excited for the next issue. Future Foundationis shaping up to be as resonant a book as Gillen and McKelvies Young Avengers, and hopefully it will last at least as long. Read Full Review

    I brought up Power Pack at the start because that was the vibe I got from this book. A wish fulfillment book that puts a little wonder back into comics. I'm all for it. It reads a little bit differently than the usual Marvel book and I'd say fans of the Guardians of the Galaxy vibe will like this book, as well as Fantastic Four followers. A solid first issue that will hopefully build to new and better things. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Aug 7, 2019

    Future Foundation #1 is a solid start to a series and definitely has a tone and direction I wasn't expecting. To have a meta-story about Molecule Man and then adventures on the side, this should be a series that's a solid mix of Fantastic Four, Doctor Who, and just solid sci-fi. Add in a good dose of humor and you have a series that'll put a smile on your face. Read Full Review

    Future Foundation doesn’t introduce the team perfectly, but does a good job at showcasing what threats they will be going up against, and how they will be working as a unit to fight these encounters. The cliffhanger of the issue presents a very promising place to explore not just for the Fantastic Four, but the Marvel universe as a whole. Future Foundation #1 is a fun, high-energy premiere that has a lot of promise if it figures out what elements to focus upon. Read Full Review

    Underneath that weightiness is an exciting prison break story filled with unexpected turns of events, so perhaps the rest of Future Foundation will follow this path now that the introductions are taken care of. Read Full Review
