First Look At the Thing’s Wedding in Fantastic Four #5
2018 hasn’t exactly been a banner year for superhero weddings. Batman and Catwoman never even made it to the ceremony, and Kitty Pryde left Colossus at the altar. At least Rogue and Gambit managed to tie the knot! But next week, Fantastic Four #5 will supposedly buck the trend of superhero wedding disasters as the Thing and Alicia Masters finally get hitched.
Long time FF readers may recall that Alicia married the Human Torch all the way back in Fantastic Four #300. But Alicia turned out to be a Skrull, leaving the real Alicia free to rekindle her relationship with the Thing years later. Ahead of next week’s Fantastic Four #5, Marvel has dropped a few preview pages by Dan Slott and artist Mike Allred. which find the Thing in need of some pre-wedding help that only Susan Richards can provide. Adam Hughes, and Aaron Kuder will also contribute stories to the oversized issue.
Here’s the official description from Marvel: “The wedding that’s been years in the making…Ben and Alicia say “I do!” No bait. No switch. Not a dream. Not a hoax. And we swear, not a single Skrull around. This is really happening! From the book that brought you the first, best and longest running super hero marriage in comics, we give you…the wedding of Ben Grimm and Alicia Masters! Featuring an untold tale of the courtship of Ben and Alicia. A bachelor party that only Johnny Storm could throw. And a very special ceremony brought to you in the Mighty Marvel Manner.”
