The Marquis of Death is an alternate reality version of Clyde Wyncham from the far-distant future. He is the one and only Mutant to have existed in his reality (as is recounted in the mini-series “1985”, I think…) and has spent countless centuries terrorizing and tearing apart The Multiverse.
The whole issue is about the ‘torture’ that the Marquis puts the Fantastic Four through. I have admit that I was expecting more, but then, this is Mark Millar’s story… not mine.
The physical battle was really short… and too gracious on the part of the Marquis. We will see the conclusion next month 🙂
