I don't know if any of you remember this... it was a long time ago... but it was once suggested that these 4 outcasts could take over as the F4. Anyone remember that?!
Ever since I was a kid I thought the Fantastic four were lame, but when these 4 became a potential, even if it was only a "what if?" scenario, it stayed with me as a very cool memory.
I thought I'd do up a simple little costume design for them. I tried to stay true to their original costumes but adding a unifying style to them. Except for Hulk of course, who's costume usually consists of just some ripped pants. I kept it really simple, but there you go. Hope you like!

  2. I totally have at least one of the comics where these guys took over for the Fantastic 4. I also thought it was the coolest thing ever.
    If I remember correctly, at the time Wolverine didn't wear spandex, just a leather jacket with jeans and a t-shirt. Also, I'm pretty sure it was the gray Hulk.

    Still, it was super fun. I think your costumes are great!

  14. You know, I had that mag and now it's gone. I totally forgot about it until now!

    Where, oh where did it go? It's probably in the same place as my Bernie Wrightson Spiderman and Thing/Hulk TPBs.

    And your costumes are perfect, btw.
