CGC G/VG: 3.0
Inspired by DC's top-selling smorgasbord of heroes, the Justice League of America, Stan Lee, and Jack Kirby decided to go one better when tasked with creating a copycat title for Marvel. Instead of a mashup of existing heroes, Lee and Kirby struck upon the novel concept of creating a super-family, allowing young readers to instantly identify with the day-to-day squabbles and growing pains of the protagonists while still enjoying liberal doses of heroism and derring-do. This dynamic and historic first issue hit the ground running with an action-packed cover and one of the most thrilling and engrossing origin stories of the era. Fox Studios has made sure to keep their rights to the Fantastic Four properties so expect another silver screen reboot in the coming years. Hopefully the third time will be the charm!˙ŭ˙ŭSilver Age Marvel keys like this one are always in high demand and there is no sign of abatement anytime soon.
