Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes

Posted by JonesDeini (3620 posts) - - Show Bio


I recently started watching this show again an it hit me just how great this show is. Honestly I'd rank it up amongst Marvel's best animated series as well as one of the best animated adaptations of a comic book period. The voice acting was overall excellent and the characterizations were likewise. They chose great villains to appear in the series and the show had a great balance of humor and action. Anybody else a fan of this show?

I never liked their uniforms in the show, but I do agree that it was a very good show.

I really liked this show. It's extremely underrated, IMO.

Yeah the suits was one of my problems my other was Doom's Origin mirroring the movie, but considering it came out shortly after I get that choice. This is minor but I didn't like their take on The Atlantians and Moloids either.

@JonesDeini: I didn't really mind the change that much since like you said, it came out shortly after the movie. But I never got to see the episode's with Namor. I did like the episode with the Skrull's though. Also I loved when other characters would make guest appearances, Ant-Man, She-Hulk, Iron Man were nice to see pop up....although I didn't like the design they went with for Hank Pym, looks too much like Scott Lang's Ant-Man look.

@War Killer
Yeah, they did a pretty good job with guest appearances. They NAILED Namor, I love the two episodes with him. 

@haydenclaireheroes
You can watch the whole series @ Marvel's site. 

@Gambit1024
Indeed, I especially love the way Sue was written. Yost really does a great job of adapting Marvel's characters to animated shows.

was really disappointed when it was cancelled thought that it was one of the better animated shows that were on at the time

@RedK
Likewise, man. I had heard rumors that it was coming back.

Whatever happen to it?

@Primmaster64
Erratic scheduling of episodes and an ever-shifting time slot. So it got pulled and never aired in full on tv. I've been watching the episodes on Marvel's site.

where did you hear that? don't suppose you have a link to where it was mentioned

@Primmaster64
Yup, but did air in full and was collected on DVD

@RedK
I was watching an ep. on Marvel's site and it said something about returning in October. I think it might be an old message now that I think about it. Since the newest vid was posted back in the summer of 09, right around the time it started being shown on Boomerang. I hope the success of Avengers convinces marvel to this series or another staring the Four a chance, once they get the rights back form Fox of course...

Well they did have a cameo on Avengers: EMH, so I'd keep my eyes open for a new FF show.

I was:).

I love the effect they gave for Sue's shield.

@Kimmy:  
Agree. I'm really glad they made sure Sue had her force field powers. She's probably my favorite character in the show, same as in the comics.

@mark5: Little ol' me? Nope never, bro. And yeah I love this theme song. Has a real Star Trek feel to it.
