The Justice League consisted of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and Aquaman, to name a few. There are a few dozen members who band together to fight crime.

Another quartet of heroes that will behaving their story hit the big screen in the summer of 2015 are The Fantastic Four. 

Who Are The Fantastic Four?

Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in the early 1960’s, this team published the first 100 editions of the series on their own. 

The genesis of this band of heroes began when Reed Richards, an aeronautical engineer who spent his inheritance trying to develop an aircraft that was capable of interstellar travel. One fateful day, Reed, his girlfriend Susan Storm, her brother Johnny, and Benjamin Grimm, Reed’s best friend, too a flight on the craft he had developed.

After taking off, a problem developed. The spaceship encountered cosmic radiation and the aircraft crashed. Although everyone aboard survived, their bodies had changed due to the radiation exposure. Everyone now had a new kind of power.

Reed could now stretch his limbs and body disproportionate amounts. He became Mr. Fantastic.

Johnny became the Human Torch because he could be engulfed in flames and not be harmed. He could also fly.

Susan became Invisible Woman due to the fact that she could just disappear into thin air.

Ben became the Thing because not only did he possess superhuman strength, he was disfigured.

Over the years, these four have been through all sorts of adventures. The new summer film that features the quarter will tell this tale in a very visual way.

The Movie's Plot

The movie begins when the team are young and in school. Over time, we see them grow up and eventually take a fateful trip on a rocket ship. During their trip, they change forms and turn to Earth to help fight crime.

Of course, every superhero story has to have a villain. In this movie, his name is Victor Domashev, aka, Doctor Doom. A computer programmer who was originally named Victor von Doom in comic books, his backstory has been changed a bit for dramatic license. The fantastic Four have to save the world from his evil genius.
