Collects Fantastic Four (1961) #33-51 And Annual #3.Stan Lee called it "the World's Greatest Comic Magazine," and he wasn't kidding. If Lee and Jack Kirby set the comics world on fire in 1961 with the debut of the Fantastic Four, in 1965 they burned it down. Letting loose an unmatched burst of rapid-fire creativity, they gave birth to the Frightful Four, the Inhumans, Galactus and the Silver Surfer — and even pulled off the first super-hero wedding! There are also monster menaces galore, including Dragon Man — and out-of-this-world villains, from the shape-shifting Skrulls to the undersea warlord Attuma. But it's not just the panel-bursting action that makes FANTASTIC FOUR great. It's the drama of a family, united to explore all the wonders of the Marvel Universe side by side!

From Doctor Strange's eerie Greenwich Village home, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created new dimensions and otherworldly terrors unlike anything seen before. These classic first stories remain as influential today as they were to 1960s counterculture. In this premiere volume, experience the debut of iconic characters including Baron Mordo, Eternity, Dormammu and the Mindless Ones — as well as Strange's faithful servant Wong and the mystic mistress Clea!

But the true heart of the story is young Peter Parker finding his way in the world.

In 1962, in the pages of a comic book slated for cancellation, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko gave birth to one of the most enduring icons in American popular culture: the Amazing Spider-Man! Turning the concept of a super hero on its head, they imbued the young, guilt-ridden Peter Parker with the fantastic powers of an arachnid and the fantastic pressures of an everyday teenager. The combination was pure magic. Now, you can leap into Spider-Man's web-slinging world from the very beginning, including the tragic origin that started it all; the first appearances of the Daily Bugle and J. Jonah Jameson; and the debut of classic villains including the Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, the Sandman, the Vulture and Electro! Collecting AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (1963) #1-17 and ANNUAL #1, and material from AMAZING FANTASY (1962) #15.
And there came a day, a day unlike any other when Earth's mightiest heroes joined forces to face the threats no single superhero could withstand! The Avengers where born!
An editorial Goof. The Marvel Bullpen gave comic fans a "No prize" whenever they would solve a problem or a mix up in one of the Marvel Comics, so that it wouldnt seem that the writer/artist had made a mistake. In tribute to this long legacy, Marvel Comics published the No-Prize Book in 1983, in witch the biggest mistakes made in Marvel Comics up until then where published. Think of, the X-men Angel calling his friend "Angel" , wrong colors on hero's, goofy sayings (some of them even racist by today's standards) or misspelled names on the same page.

What If? has become a corner staple in the Marvel Universe by spotlighting "the road not traveled" by many of its heroes & villains as well as the domino effect that the point of divergence creates. What If? 200 offers two titanic tales - the main story is one with a different POV on Siege, "What If Norman Osborn Won the Siege of Asgard?" What if the Sentry didn't lose control of the Void during battle, allowing for the Siege to ultimately decimate our heroes? With Osborn on top of the world, only one force stands in his way: Doom... and he's not alone as he rebuilds the Cabal with the X-Men?! The second tale is one that will be talked about amongst the multiverse: the murder of Galactus at the hands of... the WATCHER!?
