Marvel Announces Return of Fantastic Four Spinoff, Future Foundation

Marvel announced those adventures will be told in a relaunch of Future Foundation by writer Jeremy Whitley and artist Will Robson.

The publisher first teased the Future Foundation's return in April, with July's Fantastic Four #12 including a backup story by Whitley and Robson. The synopsis for Future Foundation #1 says the team will be off searching for the missing pieces of their friend, Molecule Man, who perished in Fantastic Four #2 by the Griever.

Created in 2010 by Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting, the Future Foundation is a gathering of Earth's greatest young minds that Reed Richards established to help find solutions to the world's biggest problems.

But with its close ties to the Fantastic Four, don't be surprised if the kids make their way back to the Marvel Prime Universe to work side by side with Marvel's First Family.
