FANTASTIC FOUR MOVIE TOYS

Toy Biz has provided The Continuum with a rundown of its upcoming toys based on the Fantastic Four movie.

ALIAS' LETHAL INSTINCT

Alias Enterprises is launching Lethal Instint, from the Brazilian team Lynx Studios, in April with a 75-cent cover price as part of its "20-Year Rollback" promotion.

Here's how Alias describes the book:

"Lethal Instict is the story of a police officer who has the unfortunate burden of being a werewolf - a secret condition he can barely contain and rarely control. As the story begins, the officer finds himself investigating a savage mauling at the estate of one of the city's wealthiest families. Unfortunately, he also remembers that the night before, under the control of his more feral side, he attacked a group of innocent people. But what seems like an open-and-shut case becomes more complicated as he finds that there are other beast-men in town, and at least one of them seems to know his secret."

"I wanted to create a story where the main character was forced to fight with his abilities," said Romulo Soares, creator of the story and manager of Lynx Studio. "We've done stories involving werewolves in the past, but they were always horror stories. It was time to do something different."

Lethal Instinct is an ongoing series that will begin with a six-issue story arc. Soares hinted that a second story arc is planned to follow the final issue's shocking conclusion.

"One of the challenges of bringing Lethal Instinct to the American market is smoothing out the translation," said Sean J. Jordan, managing editor for Alias Comics. "Fortunately, we've assigned Mike S. Miller to the task, and he's done a great job of injecting the dialogue with some character."

FC9's GENIE

FC9 is launching Genie, by writer Jim Keplinger and artist Eliseu Gouveia, in June.

"I'm really excited about the artist/writer team on Genie," said FC9 president Tilman Goins. "It's as if they play off each other and the story just builds into a larger and larger epic everytime either of them put pen to paper. They're competing over who can add the most to the story, constantly trying to out-do each other.

"Both have been garnering a lot of attention in the comic world, and I'm proud to have them working with us."

Here's how the book is described:

"Jeffrey Allen, the focus of the story, is like many of us, average kid... teased by his peers, until he stumbles on his very own genie. The relationship between Jeffrey and his genie can be best compared to that of the boys who had their computer-generated girl in Weird Science. The difference is, Jim (Keplinger) has actually woven an historical element throughout the story, including playing off of many myths and misconceptions of the Djinn that we may or may not be familiar with."

The first issue will feature a cover by David Michael Beck and will cost $2.99.
