I got a chance to talk with CBR about the upcoming Future Foundation series.
After starring in a special back-up story in this month’s Fantastic Four #12, the young super-geniuses of the Future Foundation will star in a new Marvel series. Written by Jeremy Whitley (Unstoppable Wasp) and illustrated by Will Robson (Spider-Man/Deadpool), who also team up for the backup story, the upcoming relaunch has the team of genius-level adolescents and teenagers scour the Marvel Universe for pieces of Molecule Man to put the powerful character back together.
While speaking with CBR at HeroesCon in Charlotte, Whitley shared details behind the eagerly anticipated relaunch and how Fantastic Four writer Dan Slott’s decision to keep Valeria and Franklin Richards with their parents allowed him to increase the focus on the young ensemble’s other characters.
I got to catch up once again with those War Rocket Ajaxboys – Matt Wilson (@TheMattDWilson)and Chris Sims (@theISB) – to talk about the finale of Wasp and the upcoming launch of Future Foundation. We also talk about whether or not Artie and Leech are trash teens. Are they? You’ll have to listen to find out!
Will Robson and I talked with Screen Rant about the upcoming Future Foundation series.
While originally introduced as Reed Richards and the Fantastic Four’s collection of bright young minds, the new incarnation of the Future Foundation has a more fantastic roster than ever. Alex Power remains as the team leader, with his sister (and fellow Power Pack teammate) Julie back in all her rainbow glory. Throw in a moody genius clone, one of Wakanda’s future stars, and a literal Dragon Man just to name a few, and it’s hard to imagine what stories writer Jeremy Whitley, artist Will Robson, and colorist Greg Menzie WON’T be telling. But first, the team will need an expert in breaking people out of prison… and who better than the Guardians of the Galaxy‘s own spiritual mentor, Yondu Udonta?
I’ve double checked to make sure that I added the appropriate number of Y’s to the end of Whitley. I think I have.
Though I’ve been on a few podcasts, it isn’t often that I get a chance to host one! Special thanks to The Comic Book Podcast from Talking Comics for giving me the chance to play host for “Issue 394”. In this issue, Bob, Steve, Joey and I get to talk about Future Foundation, Princeless, and more.
