Meanwhile, the Frightful Four launch a surprise attack with their newest member -- Thundra -- that pushes Reed and Sue to the breaking point. Once the dust settles, the FF will be one fewer -- because the Invisible Girl has quit! Of course, we wouldn't have the makings of an FF/Inhumans epic if Maximus the Mad didn't rear his head and make a power play for the Inhuman throne. By the time all is said and done, the Human Torch will be sporting a fiery new costume, and the Inhuman Queen Medusa will be the FF's newest member. And that's just for starters! Ahead of you are classic battles between the Thing and Thundra; the return of the towering Dragon Man and Gideon; the world's creepiest babysitter, Agatha Harkness; a bizarre trip back to the '50s courtesy of the Shaper of Worlds; and a reunion with Wyatt Wingfoot in a fight against one of the FF's oldest enemies, the Miracle Man! To top it off, we're also including a trip to the Negative Zone and the origin of its truly evil inhabitant, Annihilus. The villain's plan to harness the enormous powers in Franklin Richards will devastate the FF in a story that changed the Marvel Universe forevermore!
