Aloha CHUniverse and welcome back to Weekend Specs! This week we have more current tv/film keys for you to hunt down. Straight to the jungle with a new Legends of Tomorrow spec. Also the Fantastic Kids as promised, the rereboot of the Fantastic 4 franchise. Another Spider-verse rumor for coming films. Lastly, Jared Leto in talks to play Bloodshot. Let’s Jump In!!!
Fantastic Four vol 3 #15, #50, #54 1st appearance Valeria Von Doom, Valeria Richards
So rumor has it there will be a rereboot of F4 except it’s going to focus on Valeria and Franklin Richards not the F4. Valeria has more 1st appearances then almost any character, let me explain. Valeria is first conceived in F4 vol.1 #254 then miscarried in #267. Franklin Valeria’s older brother used his powers to transfer Valeria to an alternate dimension were she was Valeria Von Doom 1st appearance F4 vol.3 #15. Franklin’s powers became depleted while saving all reality and Valeria Von Doom is reverted to a child in Invisible Woman’s womb. We first see Valeria in the womb in F4 vol.3 #50 this is considered her 1st appearance as Valeria Richards. F4 vol.3 #54 is her first full out of the womb appearance not as Valeria Von Doom. Hopefully that makes some sense.
Fantastic Four Annual #6 1st appearance Franklin Richards, Annihilus
Have written this up in the past on Weekend Specs during a cheap villain write up, back when this book was cheap. Book goes for a pretty penny now and will continue to push up if this rereboot goes through. Franklin’s power level is top tier in the Marvel Universe so the Fantastic Two could make a good story if done right.
Marvel Spotlight #32 1st appearance Spider Woman Jessica Drew
Rumor is she will be appearing in the Spider-verse movies. This book has been silently moving and gaining steam this past month. Get it now looks like it might get pricey before we even have casting news.
Showcase #66 1st appearance B’Wana Beast
Trailer for the coming season of Legends of Tomorrow shows a clip of the beast. Don’t know how big of a role he will play on Legends but this is an old book that’s cheap in high grade, might pan out down the road.
Eternal Warrior #4 1st appearance cameo Bloodshot
Jared Leto in talks to play Bloodshot is pushing this and the other books listed below up in value as of recent. I’ve been prepared for Valiant movies for awhile now and its starting to pay off. Valiant’s Harbinger #1 has gone insane already, and these Bloodshot books are no longer sitting stagnant on the market and moving for higher prices.
Rai #0 1st full Bloodshot, 1st Rai
Both this and Eternal Warrior #4 are must haves before the movie hits. Both are still reasonably priced.
Bloodshot #1 1st solo series, 1st appearance Sinclaire, 1st Iwatsu
I like this book because it has an extremely unique accolade, it’s reportedly the first Chromium cover ever.
Bloodshot #6, #7 1st appearance Ninjak, 1st in uniform
Another Valiant key, Colin King is Ninjak, I believe he will make his way into the film. Very cheap spec, why not?
So there you have it friends this weeks list to hunt down on your weekend back issue safari. The Fantastic kid Specs have plenty of room to grow even more if they put out a half decent flick. Now is the time to get on Valiant if you haven’t yet, once the movies start rolling it will be too late. So there you have it, thanks for reading and until next time happy hunting!!!
