All the strip content consisted of reprints of American Marvel material, including (to begin with) The Micronauts (which continued directly on from its previous runs in Star Wars Weekly and Star Heroes), Seeker 3000, Paladin and Warlock. The Micronauts continued to appear right up to the final monthly issue, but the other original strips were gradually replaced by others, including:
- Star Lord (no connection to the Fleetway title or character, for which see Star-Lord)
- Star Trek (beginning with Marvel's adaptation of Star Trek the Motion Picture and continuing with new stories)
- Rom (from Forces in Combat)
- Weirdworld and Conan (both from the pages of Valour)
- Captain Marvel
The cover of the first issue of Future Tense inexplicably featured Nick Fury in space, but he appears nowhere in the actual comic.
