Empyre has not even started yet, but we’re already seeing how Marvel’s next big event will have some ramifications for Earth’s heroes. That includes the Fantastic Four, who will play a pivotal role in the next chapter of the Kree / Skrull War as it reaching our planet. The publisher has announced two one-shots spinning out of Empyre, the already teased Empyre: Aftermath Avengers #1 and the newly revealed Empyre: Fallout Fantastic Four #1.
The one-shot featuring Marvel’s first family is written by Dan Slott and illustrated by Sean Izaakse. It features a main cover by R.B. Silva. It promises two major turning points for the entire Marvel Universe as the fate of all future Kree / Skrull Wars is placed in the hands of Reed Richards and his family.
That sounds like Empyre is ending with a whimper before it even begins, but I’ll reserve judgement until the book debuts in July. I’m not sure when Fallout Fantastic Four is set for release just yet.
