origin of Fantastic Four; Spider-Man cover
Expanding the Marvel Universe bit by bit, this annual featured the retelling of the FF origin and the deepening of the tug-of-war between the imperious Prince Namor and our surface-dwelling heroes. Whether this appearance was meant to build interest in the Spider-Man title, or meant to draw Spider readers into the Fantastic Four orbit isn't certain, but it's one more example of Lee and Kirby's determination to create a bustling, big world for their new heroes to play in, and for readers to become addicted to.

Kirby cover/art; origin & 1st app. Fantastic Four; 1st Mole Man; the Marvel Age begins here! (11/61)
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.

Kirby cvr/art; 1st app. of the Skrulls; 2nd Fantastic Four
Who knew that the need for a faddish, sci-fi based villain would result in storylines and mythology spanning across decades? It wasn't as though Lee and Kirby were consciously creating a pop-culture world in the rocky days of early Silver Age Marvel, they were just trying to make fun comics that would sell and attract readers -- but, by following the hyperactive lead of their imaginative audience, they developed a language and style and mythos that carries on to this day, to the movies and beyond. This first appearance of the Skrulls hints at the grandeur and go-for-broke glee of the Marvel Universe to come. A 9.6 copy of Fantastic Four 2? The first appearance of the Skrulls? A classic cover illustration by Jack Kirby? Signed by one Mr. Stan Lee? What are you waiting for? This book is just screaming to be picked up and bought home and placed within the collection of some lucky Fantastic Four fan and marveled at for years to come. Just wait until the franchise is properly rebooted on the silver screen and watch the value skyrocket.

first costumes & established headquarters; Kirby cvr/art
The Hope Collection
This is not the first issue of the Fantastic Four, but it is an issue filled to the brim with firsts. This issue marks the first appearance of the FF's costumes, which can turn invisible, stretch to incredible lengths, resist powerful flames, and allow Ben Grimm a relaxing day at the beach. This issue also debuts the location of the super-team's headquarters, the design of their Fantasti-car, and even features the first time Stan Lee refers to the series as "The Greatest Comic Magazine in the World". Notably, this issue is also the first to feature an FF fan mail section, the first step in Lee's creation of the Mighty Marvel Fan Base. The vintage Jack Kirby cover design uses the sharp, stark grays of the New York City skyline to highlight the bright reds of Johnny Blaze's flames and the pristine white of the brand new Fantasti-car.

Kirby cvr/art; 1st SA Sub-Mariner
The Hope Collection
In the spirit of recycling, both DC and Marvel dusted off and rethought their classic Golden Age characters in the rough-and-tumble marketplace of the early Silver Age, including one of the most intriguing and unusual of all Timely creations, the fearsome Sub-Mariner. While the Golden Age Namor was a pulpy, tortured anti-hero, the Silver Age Namor was more aggressively antagonistic, with his antipathy the FF exacerbated by his longing for the fetching Sue Storm. In this first Silver Age appearance of this distinctive character, Lee and Kirby ratchet up the action and drama to a hyperbolic degree, firmly establishing this series as one of the most gloriously inventive of all Silver Age Marvel titles.

origin and 1st app. Doctor Doom; bondage cover
The Hope Collection
Doom, according to Jack "The King" Kirby, was modeled after the Middle Age's envisioning of Death, hence the hood. Kirby claims that Doom, a genius inventor, sorcerer, and leader of Latveria, is inherently evil. As a result of his facial disfigurement and hatred for Reed Richards, he lashes out against the world in perpetual vengeance. He is one of the greatest and most complex villains ever created in the world of comics and he first appears here in Fantastic Four # 5. Created by the team of Kirby and Stan "The Man" Lee, this character has been copied and imitated many times over the last fifty years, most notably as the inspiration for Darth Vader.

Kirby cover/art; 3rd SA Sub-Mariner app.
It's typical of the hard-bitten, cynical world of Silver Age Marvel to show the heroes right on the cover of their own book being turned out of their digs and jeered by crowds. It's also a sign of the clever way Stan Lee and Jack Kirby could turn everyday drabness into imaginative gold, almost as though they were thinking big by going small. It had certainly had never been tried before, so readers were turned on by the originality and audacity of Marvel's ideas, and stuck around for the strong storytelling and attention-grabbing art. This is only the third appearance of the Sub-Mariner in the Silver Age, and Lee and Kirby have already transformed him completely from a brooding romantic demigod into a snarling, almost completely adversarial despot. Readers loved it.

origin and 1st app. Impossible Man; FF origin retold
One of the first indicators that Lee and Kirby were pushing the FF book beyond the boundaries of standard hero comics was the appearance of the Impossible Man, a character intended largely as a comic foil and prankster. With the wry tone and increasingly bizarre style of the book already established, this flight of fancy allowed the bullpen boatloads of creative freedom for their next groundbreaking FF epics.

Kirby cvr/art; 1st Hulk vs Thing battle
A match made in adolescent boy heaven, it was only a matter of time before Lee and Kirby took their two most popular creations and set them against each other to see what would happen. The result, unsurprisingly, was a smash success, leading to nearly annual throwdowns between the two misunderstood behemoths. This first contretemps occured while the nascent Hulk was still in his initial, reasonably intelligent phase, making him an even more formidable opponent for the streetwise scrapping Thing. The reduction of the green goliath in later years to a monosyllabic brute made the recurring battles less and less challenging and more like a standard-issue monster mash, but this classic first meeting still retains its punch and excitement, and fans young and old still feel the old tingle when encountering this classic image.
