How Marvel Comics Got Rid Of And Brought Back The Fantastic Four

The debut of the Fantastic Four - widely recognized as Marvel's first family - in 1961 marked the birth of the Marvel Universe as it exists today, which is why it was shocking when the publisher canceled the Fantastic Four comic book in 2015. The cancellation came on the heels of serious tension between Marvel and 21st Century Fox - the company that held the film rights to the characters. However, some comic fans believe Disney's impending purchase of Fox implies that a Fantastic Four/MCU crossover could be around the corner.

The time has come for the FF to return to the pages of Marvel Comics; the story of their comeback may contain important clues about their future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
