A rocket carrying four young people--scientific genius Reed Richards, his World War II buddy Ben Grimm, his wife Sue Richards and Sue's hot-headed brother Johnny Storm--is bombarded by cosmic rays while orbiting the Earth. The radiation gives them special powers: Richards can now stretch his limbs, Johnny can burst into flame, Sue can render herself invisible, while Ben has been physically transformed into a big orange rock and given super-strength. They decide to name themselves The Fantastic Four, and use their powers to battle world-dominating villains such as Doctor Doom and The Mole Man. Written by

This Fantastic 4 cartoon series nailed it. It ranks right up there with the "X-Men" and "Spiderman" series of the '90s. The art direction matched the comics, the choice of villains was on the money, and most of the stories were taken directly from the comics. How about that? A TV series that has respect/regard for the source material? What a novel concept. These are worth seeking out for any fan of the FF4 comics. AND SPEAKING OF WHICH. . .There are now two FF4 films and this series has yet to see the light of day on DVD! What's up with that? I'm sure there's that issue of ownership of the rights, but no DVD release tie-in? The other FF4 series don't hold a candle to this one! I mean, c'mon, Herbie the Robot(ouch!)? This FF4 kept it real. Unfortunately, the only way to see this is if you have the Boomerang network(which I don't) Let's hope that the folks at Time Warner get the led out and get this series on DVD soon!
