Origin

Four intrepid explorers lifted off in an experimental rocket ship to become the first humans to attempt interstellar travel.


A freak cosmic-radiation storm changed the rocket's creator Dr. Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic), the pilot Benjamin Grimm (Thing II), Sue Storm (Invisible Girl) and her brother Johnny Storm (Human Torch II) granting them each unique powers. The four have become a unique family that continues to challenge the unknown as the greatest team of adventures ever assembled - the Fantastic Four!
