Interesting that in the midst of Grant Morrison, Jae Lee and José Villarubia’s 2001 Fantastic Four: 1234 miniseries–most of which is a jumbled thematic recapitulation of odd things from the FF’s history–we get this straight-up Jim Steranko tribute. I mean, arguably its source is one of the great ‘60s Dr. Doom moments (there’s another homage to it in a mid-'70s issue of Master of Kung Fu, of all places), but Morrison and Lee are clearly not working just from the Lee/Kirby canon here.
