The Birth of the Fantastic FourEdit

  • Please note that this will differentiate between the previously established continuity wherein the story is set squarely in the 1960's and the currently established continuity.

Genius Reed Richards had developed an experimental spacecraft with the intent to travel to other star systems.  For his own reasons, Reed decided to make an unauthorized test flight with his friends: his girlfriend Susan Storm, her brother Johnny Storm and Reed's childhood friend Benjamin Grimm.  In the original continuity, Reed decided to make the test flight due to being in a space race with communist Russia and Reed was determined to get his ship into space first.  In the current established continuity, it was to prove the legitimacy of the project to Reed's financiers, who were losing confidence in his project.
