FANTASTIC FOUR VOL. 2 HC

Written by MARK WAID

Penciled by HOWARD PORTER & MIKE WIERINGO

Cover by MIKE WIERINGO

It seemed like a simple enough idea at the time: Now that their arch-enemy, Doctor Doom, had seemingly perished, the Fantastic Four would journey into his nation of Latveria, disassemble its war machine and set its oppressed citizens free. But what appeared to be a black-and-white situation quickly turns a murky shade of gray, and Reed Richards and his family find themselves besieged on all sides – both by those they thought of as their allies, and by the very people they are trying to save. And in the awful aftermath of their authoritative action, three of the Four must contend with the defenses of the afterlife – and storm the gates of Heaven itself to rescue a fallen teammate. They’ve faced Galactus, the destroyer of everything. Now, they face the creator of everything, as the FF are reunited in the hereafter. Plus: The Fantastic Four have a lot to answer for – and when you’re trying to regain the trust of cynical New Yorkers, is associating with a certain misunderstood wall-crawler really a wise move? Collects FANTASTIC FOUR #503-513.

In NEW MUTANTS, the President of the United States decides in the face of growing racism and paranoia between man and mutant that Professor X – with his mysterious psychic powers and shrouded background – might be the bigger problem. The President’s solution: get the U.S. Government involved in the mutant-training business. With the help of Emma Frost, the President handpicks a class of “New Mutants” to serve his political agenda – including Dazzler, Karma, Havok and Polaris. But who is this mysterious Emma Frost and what is her connection to Xavier?
