Exclusive Preview: Fantastic Four #46

After four years, Dan Slott’s run with Marvel’s first family of superheroes is coming to an end with Fantastic Four #46. In his time with the book, Slott has expanded the family with the marriage of Ben Grimm/Thing and his longtime girlfriend, Alicia Masters. Ben and Alicia also adopted a Skrull girl named N’Kalla, and a Kree boy, Jo-Venn. However, there’s one addition to the Richards family readers haven’t met yet is Reed’s half-sister. But that’s about to change.

In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Fantastic Four #46, Slott and the artist known as Cafu formally introduce Joanna Jeffers, a prominent marine biologist who was apparently already aware of her familial connection to Reed. In the aftermath of the Reckoning War, it’s a quiet night for the FF in New York. But it remains to be seen if Joanna will embrace her newfound family.
