A dream project for McDuffie

I talked today with Dwayne McDuffie, writer of Marvel’s “Fantastic Four.” It’s a dream project for him. Back when he was an assistant editor at Marvel in the 1980s, he says, the company published profiles of the staff that included their biggest unfilled ambitions. “Mine was to write ‘The Fantastic Four,’ so there’s nothing left for me,” he joked.

As FF readers know, Storm and Black Panther have been added to the team while Sue and Reed Richards patch up their marriage. I asked how long they’ll be with the team, but all McDuffie would reveal is, “They’ll be around for as long as it’s interesting, and maybe a bit longer.”
