Dan Slott Can't Count, Creates Fantastic Six

Marvel's new initiative is "Close Enough."

Seven billion people on the planet and Marvel hires Dan Slott to write Fantastic Four. Ahead of his first issue, Slott already proved his inability to count with a teaser image run alongside an interview he did with Marvel.com. The problem? There's six characters.

And don't think Slott is content to stop at six.

Marvel: Speaking of those humans, we're talking Reed, Sue, Ben, and Johnny, right?

Dan Slott: Ooh. Sorry. We're replacing Johnny with a robot. NO! Kidding. Just kidding. Of course it's going to be Reed, Sue, Johnny and the Ever-Lovin' Blue-Eyed Thing! And Franklin! And Val! And Alicia! And who knows? Maybe Willie Lumpkin and Aunt Petunia, too! Wait and see.

Fantastic Four comics have been away for the last three years, while Disney figured out the best way to publish the comics without giving Fox any money (hint: just buy the company). Marvel has had literal years to plan for this, which should've been plenty of time to teach Slott how to count.
