Just follow the Star Trek model, really (yes, I know the F4 debuted earlier). Or, in other words, take the title back to its roots. It ain't that hard a concept. But to go into more detail:

>No Earth Stories
Or at least keep them at a minimum. The F4 should be out there and exploring. This universe, parallel universes, whatever. No Earth-Plots.

>Rebrand the Alien Villains
Update Zarrko, Psycho-Man, Blastaar and the others. Give them some new goals, redesign them a bit, generally make them more fresh and alien.

>Retire Doom & Earth Villains
Distribute Doom, Red Ghost, Diablo, etc, etc to other IPs. Give Doom to Iron Man, Red Ghost to Captain America, Diablo to Doctor Strange, etc, etc. This sort of "ban" on Earth-related suff should force the writers to be more imaginative and forward thinking.

>Less villains, more exploration
You can see in early ST episodes that sometimes villains didn't even exist. It could've been a wounded animal or natural disaster. Make the F4 face such dangers as well (like they did back in the day, really).

>Focus on a proper, functional family
No more drama with Namor, please.

Essentially take them back to their roots, put a sort of an on Earth-Centdic stories, and you're good to go.

PS: Oh, and bring in Ult!Reed, High Evolutionary & Kang to make up for the loss of the Earth Villains.

you can't save the F4 until a) marvel gets the rights back and/or b) ike dies

that's it


they're not coming back anon, just face it
>>
Wow, some of those ideas are garbage.

>Distribute all the iconic villains to new characters
Are you Ike? lmao
>>
>>94148468
Fuck off. You want to know how to "save" the Fantastic Four? Give them back their book. There was nothing wrong with them and the only reason their book was cancelled was because of Ike's petty feud with Fox over the film rights. They don't need "re-invented."

Literally and figuratively kill yourself

>>94149060
THIS.
The book was selling decent enough and Marvel had the audacity to lie to the fans and say "It sold poorly"
>>
Honestly, just make the FF like the Green Lantern of Marvel.

You can still keep cosmic Marvel happening far off, but any time something gets close to the Solar System, FF deal with it.

Move them into a space station (Baxter Base?) and have them do a combination of "gee whiz, science!" type shit and maybe defend the solar system from an intergalactic threat once or twice a year.

Keeps them close enough to cameo in a book every now and then but far enough away that their stories can be independent from the MCU.

tldr: replace S.W.O.R.D. with the Fantastic Four
>>
To be absolutely fucking honest.

No one cares about Fantastic Four except for people who are into comics, or people who got into comics.

Incredibles is easily a more famous superhero family.
>>
>>94148468
>No Earth stories
Even though the vast majority of classic F4 stories take place somewhere on Earth?

Sounds like from what I'm reading you just want the F4 to be what you want them to be (which is little more than shitty fan-fiction).

Fox already did this.

Have you read the FF comics? At least the first hundred? They are not a proper family, drama with Namor was there since the beginning.

Also this
>>94149060
The books werent bad nor were cancelled because they had bad reception.
>>
>>94150540
Incredibles ARE the Fantastic 4.
>>
>>94148468
>LOL JUST GET RID OF THE VILLAINS
OP a gigantic faggot as usual
>>
>>94150846
No they are not. None of their characterizations are the same except the matronly attitude of Mrs. and Dash being the loveable hothead young gun
>>
>>94150460
>Fantastic S.W.O.R.D.
Sure, I'd buy it.
>>
>>94148468
>No more drama
there's your first red flag, I bet Marvel can even accept the rest but this is a no go, sorry anon you'll never work at Marvel
