The Fantasticast Episode 3: Fantastic Four #4 & #5

The Fantasticast Episode 3

The Fantasticast Episode 3

Super-Villain Cavalcade

Welcome to the third episode of The Fantasticast, the fortnightly show where Steve Lacey and Andrew Leyland take a look at every issue of the Fantastic Four from the very beginning. This time out, we take a look at Fantastic Four #4 and #5, featuring the first appearances of two of the greatest antagonists for the team: Namor, the Sub-Mariner, and Doctor Doom.

Oh, and we reveal the truth about the hosts: Our well-crafted outer appearance of mature and responsible adults completely crumbles when faced with a story in which Namor's mighty horn features prominently.
