    The costumes aren't horrible, they look like some pharma corp though.

    It is cool how on each costume, they each have different hexagons filled in.

    I like the costumes a lot, actually. They have a very NASA/Astronaut-classic Sci-Fi feel to them. [​IMG]

    What I really care for is the idea of Spider-Man (temporarily) joining the team. The character just works better working as a loner. I know he has a long history with the FF, but I wish they had gone another way.

    They should have put Wolverine instead of Spidey, he has the same rebelious, can't be controlled attitude as Storm. Spidey seems too much like Reed.

    I don't like the costume either, make the main color black to symbolize the mourning for Johnny would have been better.

    Yeah and it's not like Wolverine is overexposed or anything. The man could use a few more teams to join and comics to star in. Let's put him on the FF, why not? Maybe Marvel can license him to DC so he can join the JLA and team up with Batman, while they are at it. EDIT: I also have to ask, other then being smart how is Parker like Reed at all?

    FF doesn't need another powerhouse which Wolverine pretty much embodies. Spider-Man, while just as overexposed, seems a better fit for the team.

    Parker's overexposed, but he does not hold a candle to Wolverine. Logan is in every other Marvel book these days.

    Lol. I see your point (I actually made a thread on another forum discussing Logan's overexposure) but in terms of quantity of titles moved per month, Spider-Man takes the cake.

    You mean in terms of total comics sold that feature the character? If you leave out the Avengers books which sometimes feature them both, I'm not sure about that. You have Logan in several X-Books and he has his own title which sells fairly well. Would be curious to see the hard numbers.

    I don't read comic anymore so I really wouldn't know.
    I wouldn't say they are exactly the same but it seems like the two would get along too well. Their both great leaders and very smart. Do people really want to read a comic book bromance between the two? I'm just saying, someone who may clash with the team a bit would be better than someone who can easily blend in.

    Again I don't read comics anymore but in the mainstream media, Spider Man still seem more popular than Wolverine.

    I did a quick search and Spidey apparently appears in 6-7 titles (excluding Avengers books). I wouldn't be surprised if Wolverine matched or even exceeded these numbers but I still see Spider-Man as more exposed. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It's all good. I just had a laugh at the idea of suggesting Logan joins ANOTHER team. If you still read comics you would understand. It's kind of a meme to make fun of the fact that the guy must have no time to sleep with all the titles he appears in. [​IMG]

    As much as I think Parker is a little overexposed too and does better as a solo character, he does have a long history with the FF. It actually makes sense to be him in that regard. The only other character I could think of with similar history to the team is She-Huk. Of course she wouldn't work because they don't need two strength characters.

    Does anyone remember when they temporarily replaced the FF with Spider-Man, Hulk, Wolverine and Ghost-Rider? Everything that was wrong with comics in the 90's was wrapped up right there. [​IMG]
