I'm delighted.  I've enjoyed Dan Slott's work on Spider-Man, Silver Surfer, and She-Hulk very much.  I'm onboard for any title he writes, which will mean this title and Iron Man: Tony Stark.  I'm not that familiar with Sara Pichelli's art, but I've just been looking at some of it online and I think she'll do great.  In short, I'm stoked for this.

You're right, of course. But tying them to WWII was only a good idea if the title only lasted a few years or was constantly losing and replacing readers. Once fandom became a constant (nit-picky) presence, the editors had to spend a lot of their time dealing with insoluble problems. I didn't read it, but I heard tell that Marvel tried to say that the Howling Commandos made their rep in the Grenada Invasion, which lasted a whole five days.

The younger figures in the teaser silhouette are presumably Franklin and Valeria, now teenagers. Reed has a beard in the final image.

I wouldn't mind the kids being older. How long has Franklin been in elementary school? Forty years? That story has been told.

My only complaint is that The Thing is drawn as if he's an ordinary (although big) fellow covered in orange Rocky Road. The best depictions of Thing for me are ones where he seems to be his own species. Kirby drew him that way, with the brick eyebrow and gigantic teeth. I loved Byrne's version, which he said once was based on the physiognomy of apes, with exaggerated arms and short legs. The depiction for the new series just looks too ordinary for me.
