- Synopsis / Plot
- Scientist Reed Richards asks his old university roommate Victor Von Doom, now a billionaire industrialist, for funding to launch a mission to Von Doom’s space station to study the effects of a cosmic storm. Von Doom agrees but asks Reed to sign away 75% of the proceeds in return. The expedition launches with Reed, Von Doom, Von Doom’s chief geneticist Susan Storm (Reed’s old flame who is now wooed by Von Doom), her hotshot brother Johnny as pilot, and Reed’s friend Ben Grimm. But once on the station they discover that the storm is accelerating. Von Doom cold-bloodedly prepares to bring the shields down and abandon Ben outside the station. The others race to his rescue but are hit by a full blast of radiation. Back on Earth they soon discover that the radiation has left them with strange abilities – Reed finds that he can stretch and contort his body like elastic; Susan can become invisible and project a forcefield; Johnny has the ability to burst into flames and generate heat equal to the temperature of the sun; while Ben develops a massive rock-like orange outer skin. They gain media attention after using their abilities to save people at a crash on a bridge and are nicknamed The Fantastic Four. Meanwhile, due to the disaster on the station, Von Doom has been fired as CEO of his own company. He finds that he too is starting to mutate, developing a skin of metal and the ability to control electrical energy. Seething with revenge, he seeks to find a means of destroying The Fantastic Four.
