In a post at the Marvel Heroes forum, Gazillion, the company behind the game, announced that under their new licensing agreement, the Fantastic Four will no longer be included in the game, except for Doctor Doom, who plays a prominent role in the game. Only players who have purchased the characters before July 1 will be able to play them.

Starting on July 1, 2017, the following Heroes will no longer be available to purchase with Gs: Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Thing, Human Torch, and Silver Surfer. You will have until Wednesday (6/28) at 2:00PM PDT to purchase those heroes with Eternity Splinters. This change will also affect all costumes for those characters as well as Future Foundation costumes for other characters. See below for the full list. Please note that this upcoming change will not affect Doctor Doom, who will remain as a playable Villain and maintain his role in the game's story campaign.

Gazillion also announced the removal of every Fantastic Four related costume, of which there are a lot.

  • Spider-Man Future Foundation
  • Spider-Man Future Foundation Black
  • Spider-Man Bag Man
  • Ghost Rider – What if?
  • Doctor Doom Future Foundation
  • Mr. Fantastic Future Foundation

  • Human Torch Modern
  • Human Torch Original
