A brilliant scientist - his best friend - the woman he loves - and her fiery-tempered kid brother! Together, they braved the unknown terrors of outer space, and were changed by cosmic rays into something more than merely human!





Now they are THE FANTASTIC FOUR - and the world will never be the same again!





Why should anyone care about a comic group of heroes? Well...I don't think that anyone who didn't read comic books as a kid can reallyunderstand...on the other hand, if you're still a kid at heart, you might, with some effort, be able to at least see the potentiality of such an interest. I grew up reading the FF, and for a while, they were myheroes, heroes in a fantastic world, with their own dreams and ambitions, doubts and fears, trials and tribulations. Reed who epitomized the brilliant, altruistic scientist, seeking knowledge for the sake of knowledge... his best friend, Ben, the tragic hero, disfigured by the accident that gave him his powers, proving without doubt that his courage and will to live were the true source of his indomitable strength... Sue whose fighting spirit slowly emerged over time to reassert her position as possibly the strongest member of the FF...and finally, Johnny Storm, her younger hot tempered brother, always in search of love, but never quite finding it. Above all they were a team that fought hard, and never gave up. The essence of their characters was the power of will and the boundless courage of the human soul. They showed, time and time again, that no matter what obstacles they faced, humanity would survive and that good would triumph over evil.
