The super-elastic Mr. Fantastic, the force field-wielding Invisible Girl, the orange rock-covered Thing and the data-crammed robot Herbie make up a team of superheroes dedicated to thwarting would-be world-dominating villains.
When Reed Richards, Sue and Johnny Storm and pilot Ben Grimm take a premature space flight on a new shuttle, they find themselves massively bombarded with cosmic radiation. Barely managing to re-enter and land safely, the quartet find themselves forever transformed with superpowers. Deciding to use these new powers to help people, they form the Fantastic Four, a superhero team dedicated to the protection of Earth from menaces like the Latverian King Dr. Doom and Galactus, the planet consumer.

The vast majority of episodes in Season 1 consisted of fairly accurate re-tellings and re-interpretations of classic 1960s FF comic book stories by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. The Season 2 episodes also drew upon John Byrne's 1980s run on the Fantastic Four comic, in addition to further Lee and Kirby adventures. See more »

That's all. No more. Now *that's* grammatical!

The Fantastic Four are probably the most exciting superhero group in comics history. I have seen all their cartoon series and whilst this isn't the best it is still entertaining.
The animation is superb and the stories great. In this series the Fantastic Four only dealt with heavyweights such as Galactus (the guy who eats planets for breakfast,lunch and supper), the dangerous Dr. Doom and the devastating Super Skrull.
The theme tune was good as well. This, along with Iron Man, was one of the better mid-90's Marvel cartoons.
