Storyline

The Fantastic Four were originally just astronauts who were tasked with conducting a test flight on new space craft. The four astronauts were called; Ben Grimm, Johnny Storm, Susan Storm, and Reed Richards. During the operation in outer space their ship was hit by some strange cosmic rays; these rays caused huge changes to the astronauts inside the ship. When they landed back on Earth the group discovered that they now have superhuman abilities. It doesn’t take them long to decide that they can use these new abilities for the good of society.

Unlike other Superheroes the Fantastic Four have no interest in protecting their identities; they like the recognition and the publicity. The four each were left with their own unique abilities. Johnny Storm became the Human Torch and he now had the gift of being able to control fire. The Human Torch can use fire to protect his body and fly through the air. Reed Richards became Mr. Fantastic and he can reshape and stretch his body in almost any way he chooses. Susan storm is now the invisible woman. Ben Grimm was transformed into a monster with superhuman strength.

The Fantastic Four are soon off fighting the bad guys and they are joined by other superheroes from time to time. They begin to tackle super-villains like Doctor Doom, the Red Ghost, and Mole Man.

The Good Guys

Reed Richards became Mr. Fantastic after he became exposed to gamma rays while on a space mission; the other members of the fantastic four experienced the same thing. Mr. Fantastic now has an elastic body which he can use to great advantage; he also has super-intelligence.

Susan Richards became the Invisible Woman after her exposure to the cosmic rays. She now has the ability to become invisible and can also create special force fields which she can use for defense purposes. The invisible woman is also able to control objects with her mind.

The Thing’s name was originally Ben Grimm and he was the most affected by the cosmic rays. He was changed into a mutant with superhero strength. His skin is like rock and he is extremely difficult to beat in a fight.

Jonathan Storm is the Human Torch. He has the ability absorb heat energy and create fire as well as turn himself into fire. He is not to be messed with if you don’t want to become burnt.

Namor the Submariner is the mutant son of a submariner and has amphibious physiology. He also has superhuman strength and the ability to amazing things just with his mind. He sometimes helps out the Fantastic Four.

Alicia Masters is a blind sculptress who is a friend to the Fantastic Four and sometimes helps them.

The Bad Guys

Doctor Doom is a sorcerer as well as wizard at inventing things. Not only has he managed to get on the wrong side of the Fantastic Four but his evil shenanigans have annoyed many other superheroes as well. Doctor Doom always seems to have revenge in his heart but every time he sets a plan in motion it is usually him who ends up getting hurt.

The Puppet-Master is a scary character indeed. He uses special radioactive clay that he turns into dolls and this allows him to take control of people. His attempt to take over the world would seem unstoppable if it wasn’t for the likes of the Fantastic Four.

Hyperstorm is actually a descendant of the Fantastic Four but he is also their sworn enemy. The Fantastic Four came to Hyperstorm’s attention while they were time travelling. He has many amazing mental abilities including being able to create fire with his mind.

Mole Man is a nuclear engineer who people ignored because of his small size and abusive personality. He is now blind and lives underground where he plots nasty schemes that usually end up putting him on the wrong side of the Fantastic Four.
