First Appearance: Fantastic Four 1, November 1961
Brief History: The Fantastic Four and their powers were a direct result of a Space Shuttle being exposed to Cosmic Radiation on its descent from space.
The Fantastic Four are arguably considered the first family in comics. It is because of this that they have become increasingly popular over the years. Typically in comics, heroes can be seen as unrelatable. In the case of the Fantastic Four, this was not the case. What is more relatable than a family that lives, eats and associates with one another on a day to day basis?
Arguably, they are also the recipients of the 3 worst comic book movies to date.
It is the hope of this writer that one day this will be rectified.
