Marvel’s presence at [email protected] continued tonight with the “Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes Exhibition–the Fantastic Four and Beyond!” panel.

  • The “Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes Exhibition–the Fantastic Four and Beyond!” panel featured:
    • Professor Benjamin Saunders (chief curator, Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes)
    • Tom Brevoort (VP, Executive Editor – Marvel Comics)
  • Saunders gave us a bit of a look at the blockbuster exhibition, which is currently located at the Museum of Science+Industry in Chicago.
  • Primarily though, the panel focused on both Saunders and Brevoort looking back at “Fantastic Four #1,” 60 years after the introduction of Marvel’s first family.
  • Brevoort talked about the original “Fantastic Four” run really being the first from Marvel that built a continuous story from one issue to the next.
  • Saunders referred to the Marvel Universe as “the world outside your window,” a term that has been connected to Marvel Comics for a long time. He uses that to show of a part of the exhibition that quite literally brings that idea to life, with a statue of Ben Grimm falling asleep on the couch and an animated window behind hi showcasing the action of the Marvel Universe.
  • We also got a look at some of the costumes from the Black Panther film, which are featured in a gallery within the exhibition.
