This December will mark another Marvel wedding event, and this time, Marvel fans can look forward to the happy couple saying "I do" by the end of the issue! FANTASTIC FOUR #5, which goes on sale Wednesday, December 26, will mark the official union of Ben Grimm and Alicia Masters in the very special 650th issue. The creative team, including writer Dan Slott and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort, have been assuring everyone that the Thing and his loving leading lady Alicia will not have their vows thwarted by Super Villains -- but that doesn't mean everything will go off without a hitch! Danger will be lurking in the background, but the wedding is still on!

In addition to Slott's story, an amazing team of artists will be bringing the nuptials to life: artists Adam Hughes and Michael Allred will be joined by Marvel Young Gun Aaron Kuder for interiors plus Esad Ribic providing the cover art for the 650th issue of FANTASTIC FOUR!

Brevoort said: “It’s been a long time in coming -- more than 55 years! -- but Ben and Alicia are finally tying the knot! And we’ve gone all-out to make this an extra-special event for fans, with the inclusion of not only the terrific Aaron Kuder (who’ll be illustrating the next storyline as well) but also Adam Hughes and Mike Allred for an all-star spectacular bash!”
