Series continues with Vol. 1 #500 following issue #70

The Fantastic Four was created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee in 1961, and started Marvel’s line of super-hero comics. The Fantastic Four are Mister Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Human Torch, and the Thing, a group of super-powered adventurers who travel the world and the universe in high-tech, science-fiction-flavored adventures.

After over thirty years, the changing industry and severe upheavals in the stability of Marvel Comics, causing it to revamp its entire line of comics. In 1998, a new Fantastic Four series relaunched one of the most famous comics of the modern age, updated with an attitude and approach suited for modern sensibilities.
