This is the variant cover. Two versions of this book exist, each with different cover art. On the credits page of both versions of the book, the Alex Ross painted cover is designated the "variant cover art". The only difference between the book's two versions is the artwork on the dust jacket's front cover -- the interior contents are the same in both. The Alex Ross painting was first published as a poster in 2003.

Notes

Marvel Masterworks Vol. 13, the 1st edition of the 3rd Fantastic Four Masterworks volume, reprinted Fantastic Four #21-30 and Annual #1, and the 2nd, or so-called "Re-Masterworked" edition, entitled Marvel Masterworks: Fantastic Four Vol. 3, reprinted FF #21-30 without the Annual. (The Annual was reprinted in the 2nd edition of Vol. 2.) Therefore, Stan Lee's introduction had to be revised for the 2nd edition to exclude his remarks about the Annual. The Omnibus reprints the revised introduction.

Notes

When the Hate-Monger, having been killed by his own men, is unmasked at the end of the story, he appears to be Adolf Hitler. But as Reed Richards notes, he may actually have been one of the many doubles Hitler was reported to have. Features Nick Fury in his post-WWII persona as a colonel in the CIA. Note his trademark eye-patch is not in this story. Job number from Tom Lammers and Ger Apeldoorn via the Atlas/Timely discussion group.
