Welcome back! Today we will be reviewing Future Foundation #1 which is written by Jeremy Whitley and features art from Will Robson.
Future Foundation acts as a spinoff to Dan Slott’s Fantastic Four and follows the Future Foundation and their travels through the multiverse. Their main goal appears to be to find the Molecule Man, who went missing at the start of Dan Slott’s run. So this book mostly acts as a spinoff with little connection to the main Fantastic Four story.
I did not enjoy this book. I didn’t care for the small story at the end of the last issue of Fantastic Four, but I decided to give this one a shot. However, I really didn’t care for the story or the characters. In my opinion, several of the characters were just a little too childish. I know that they are young, but they have traveled the multiverse with the Fantastic Four and are the smartest kids in the world. But they have grown up since the power pack days. heck, Julie’s in College, yet she still reads like she’s a kid in the Power Pack. I wanted to see some more growth to their characters, but clearly, this book isn’t going to present that. I like that the Maker is in this story, but he feels like Maker lite. He doesn’t feel like the real Maker. I’m sorry to the team behind the book, but I feel like it just ruins the characters and hurts the Fantastic Four story that Dan Slott is growing.
Overall, this book isn’t good and I don’t think I will be continuing it.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
Total: 4.5 / 20
