With licensing snags and forgettable movies, Marvel has spent the last several years neglecting one of its most iconic properties, the Fantastic Four. However, earlier this year, Marvel announced that its First Family will be back in a big way, starting with appearances in various games (https://www.marvel.com/articles/games/marvel-games-welcomes-marvel-s-first-family-with-fantastic-four-world-s-greatest-week). These appearances have included everything from the team being announced as future DLC in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 (https://www.gameinformer.com/e3-2019/2019/06/11/marvel-ultimate-alliance-3-expansion-pass-features-fantastic-four-x-men-and) to the Bombastic Bag Man suit being added to Spider-Man on PS4 (https://www.gameinformer.com/dlc/2019/01/28/spider-man-receives-free-new-suit-dlc-today).
In Marvel Strike Force, that return came in the form of Raids that featured Doctor Doom as a non-playable character. While it was cool to see Doom in the game, it was disappointing that he wasn't playable and none of the Fantastic Four appeared. However, when I interviewed FoxNext VP and GM Amir Rahimi a couple months later, he told me the studio had acquired the rights to the Fantastic Four (https://www.gameinformer.com/interview/2019/03/23/foxnext-vp-on-marvel-strike-forces-first-year-the-disney-acquisition-and-the) and that fans should look forward to "some really cool stuff." The content Rahimi hinted at has finally been unveiled, as the Fantastic Four and their longtime ally/nemesis Namor are joining the roster soon.
