When four friends - Reed Richards, Ben Grimm, Sue Storm and her brother Johnny - were exposed to intense radioactive rays during a voyage into space, they would never be the same again.
Each member of the ill-fated crew was genetically altered by the rays and developed a unique superhuman power. Armed with new identities, Mr Fantastic, The Invisible Woman, The Human Torch and The Thing formed the Fantastic Four, a phenomenal team dedicated to the advancement of mankind. When it debuted in 1961, the Fantastic Four broke every comic book rule - the characters had no secret identities, lived in a real city (NYC), and had problems, worries and arguments - just like real people. It was the first comic to feature characters that readers could really identify with.
In this definitive guide to the Fantastic Four you'll discover everything you need to know - the history, the adventures, the trials and tribulations - about this ground-breaking team of super heroes.
