The Marvel Age Of Comics started here. Instructed by his publisher to create a superhero team to compete with DC's Justice League Of America, Stan Lee, on the verge of quitting the comics biz for good, decides he has nothing to lose by creating a superhero team that broke the mould: an egghead scientist who spoke in terms no-one else could understand, his fiancee who mysteriously would "un-become" his fiancee from the second issue so that Lee could unfold the story of their stop/start romance over the ensuing years, a hardnosed test pilot jock and an impetuous teenage tearaway.No secret identities or hideout for the FF; everyone knew who they were and their headquarters was a skyscraper in NYC (called Central City in the first issue) with their logo emblazoned on the side.The first 10 issues reprinted in this volume are classics thanks to the imagination of Lee and his collaborator, the legendary Jack Kirby, to many the true creative force behind the rise of Marvel Comics.Among the baddies introduced (or reintroduced) in these 10 comics are some of the biggies: the shapeshifting Skrulls, The Sub-Mariner, Dr Doom and the Puppet-Master. Described on the cover of issue 4 onwards as 'The World's Greatest Comic Magazine", it would not truly reach that status for another 3 years but all the ground work is laid here.
