It’s going to be a while before Sue Richards returns to the big screen alongside her Fantastic Four teammates. But in the meantime, she is about to embark on her own solo adventures in Marvel’s comic book universe. Via ComicBook.com, Marvel has announced an Invisible Woman standalone 5 issue miniseries that will premiere in July.
Invisible Woman is written by Mark Waid. Previously, Waid had an acclaimed three-year run on Fantastic Four with the late artist Mike Wieringo. This time around, Waid is collaborating with artist Mattia De Iulis, who recently illustrated several Jessica Jones digital comics.

“In over fifty years, she’s never had her own title (or maybe she did and you just didn’t see it),” Marvel SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort said in a press release. “Waid and Iulis will be delving into what Sue Richards does—and even who she is—on her own time, apart from her famous family! It’s sure to surprise some—as will a few of the gestures-players who’ll be passing through the story!”
Marvel relaunched its Fantastic Four ongoing series last summer after a three-year absence. They didn’t provide a lot of info about the nature of the new Invisible Woman series. However, it’s worth noting that Waid penned an issue of Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. in 2015 that established Sue as a member of the spy organization. It’s possible that Waid and Iulis will have her following a similar path.
