|With the Marvel line of comics suffering badly in the post-boom years of the mid-1990s, Marvel management took the unprecedented step of inviting the core Image creators to revamp the core Marvel titles for a new millennium.||Though the results were variable, the comics certainly garnered fan and media attention. Probably the most successful were Jim Lee's revisions of Fantastic Four and iron Man.||Rob Liefield continued to wrestle with the intricacies of the human figure and thus his revisions of Captain America and The Avengers sported some unique interpretations of what a superhero should look like.|
|Fantastic Four 1 (1996)
These reinventions of the mainstream Marvel characters were entertaining enough comics but there was a nagging feeling that the Image creators were simply going through the motions.
|Iron Man 1 (1996)
These reinterpretations lacked conviction and creativity and though they may have been a commercial success at the time, time has shown that creative success eluded these talented artists.
|Captain America 1 (1996)
The "Heroes Reborn" project lasted only a year and planted the seeds for a much more successful reinterpretation of the Marvel core heroes ... The Ultimates.
