January 8-16, 2019, will see an eight-day celebration, in honor of Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch and Thing, with Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Week.

The event will launch on Jan. 8 with a special livestream, giving fans a sneak peek as to what’s next for Reed Richards, Susan Storm, her brother, Johnny Storm, and Ben Grimm. In conjunction with This Week in Marvel and Earth’s Mightiest Show, the week will cover everything Fan4 with special episodes, exclusive interviews, trivia, reading lists and much, much more!

Loyalists of the team will also have an opportunity to order limited-edition Fantastic Four apparel and, in celebration of over 50 years of Marvel’s ‘First Family’, the publisher will be releasing a series of variant covers highlighting some of the team’s most-memorable antiheroes, which will span over 20 select titles across the MU library.


The week will culminate on Jan. 16 with the release of the first (of four) ‘mystery variants’, which will launch with the release of Fantastic Four #6, ‘The Herald of Doom’.

In August, the publisher brought the Fantastic Four back with its critically-acclaimed Fantastic Four #1. Fans propelled the book to one of the top-selling comics of the year! So, it’s not just about Captain Marvel in 2019, as Marvel clearly has big plans for this legendary team.
