A Quick Tip by woopak_the_thrill

  • Dec 2, 2011
One thing that separates this fabulous foursome from the rest of the other super-teams is the fact that they are a FAMILY. They bicker, they argue, they become separated and have differences, but they will always be a family. The comic book became "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine" because of the way it introduced a lot of characters that became icons in the pages of comic books-villains and heroes alike. It wasn't so much as the team was powerful, but the comic was just filled with charming characters and well-executed stories that defined Marvel. Their Villains Gallery may not be as deep nor as wide as others, (I define a villains list as something that is personal to the hero or team) but each encounter serves as an excellent staging point. Reed and Sue Richards, and Ben Grimm on a separate occasion even became Avengers at certain points.

The Skrulls and The Kree, Galactus, the Watcher, The Stranger, the Inhumans and many other ones have been introduced or developed fully within the pages of their magazine. The Fantastic Four is all about a journey and the discovery of new worlds and realities.

Too bad the movies sucked.

The fantastic four was four people with distinct personalities and powers and managed to make them a team.

Marvel announced that one of the Fantastic Four will be 'permanently" killed off and the group will be reformed as something new.  My guess is that it will be Sue Storm.  What do you think?   Here is a link to the story:   http://www.cnn.com/2010/SHOWBIZ/12/22/ff/index.html?hpt=C2

About this book


The Fantastic Four is a fictional superhero team appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The group debuted in The Fantastic Four #1 (November 1961), which helped to usher in a new level of verisimilitude in the medium.

The Fantastic Four was the first superhero team created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist and co-plotter Jack Kirby, who developed a collaborative approach to creating comics with this title that they would use from then on.

As the first superhero team title produced by Marvel Comics, it formed a cornerstone of the company's rise from a small division of a publishing company to a pop-culture conglomerate.

The title would go on to showcase the talents of comics creators such as Roy Thomas, John Byrne, Steve Englehart, Walt Simonson, John Buscema, George Perez and Tom DeFalco, and is one of several Marvel titles still in publication since the Silver Age of Comic Books.

The four core individuals traditionally associated with the Fantastic Four, who gained superpowers after exposure to cosmic rays during a scientific mission to outer space, are: Mr. Fantastic (Reed Richards), a scientific genius and the leader of the group, who can stretch his body into incredible lengths and shapes; the Invisible Woman (Susan "Sue" Storm), Reed's wife, who can render herself and others invisible and project powerful force fields; the Human Torch (Johnny Storm), Sue's younger brother, who can generate flames, surround himself with them and...
