‘Empyre: Fallout Fantastic Four #1’ (review)

Published by Marvel Comics


Empyre: Fallout Fantastic Four attempts to give some closure while opening other doors. It feels messy and unsure of itself. If you are a completist, go for it.

But it just feels like a cynical dash for your wallet.

The Fantastic Four and Avengers are converged on the moon.

A question that lingers is how were the Cotati army provided arms that almost defeated the combined Kree/Skrull army.

Reed has called the Profiteer. In studying the arms she is unable to answer where the Cotati weapons originated. She makes an attempt to steal back the children that the Fantastic Four has rescued in previous issues of their regular title.

But Hulkling, as Emperor of the joint empire declares any previous dealings with the Profiteer null and void.

Several characters get a moment on the stage in wrapping up the less than exciting Marvel event. Spidey quips about being on the moon. Thor and Franklin Richards have a quiet Thunder God mentoring a teen moment.

Throughout the story, we get narration from The Unseen.

A replacement Uatu who has been watching. However, the story concludes with the return of Original Recipe Watcher, Uatu. His return bodes Ill.

So keep an eye out for the next Marvel event.

Dan Slott fills in some blanks from the end of the Empyre event. Sean Izaakse on art tries to bring the feel of Valerio Schiti’s work on the main Empyre issues. The art is capable.

But this Fallout issue never feels necessary.
