Welcome to Mashed Up Origins! This is an experiment of mine that I was going to make into a group, but with the chaos that a group can bring I decided to go it alone. Feel free to do your own. It’s short, sweet and basically a quick origin, not an ongoing just something to make you go (hopefully) “I’d like to see that!” This is the third one I've done starting with Winter Soldier, Thor and now Fantastic Four. Enjoy

“You don’t have to come” said Reed Richards

“Big Brain” said Ben Grimm “You gonna fly that bucket of bolts yourself are you? You may be smart but you’re no pilot”

“And if you think I’m letting my sister go to the moon without me” said Johnny Storm “You are crazy!”

“If my boyfriend, my friend and my brother are all going to do something incredibly stupid like sneak onto an air force base to steal a rocket to prove or disprove a hypothesis then you’re going to need a beautiful blonde to smooth over the trouble we’re all going to be in” said Susan Storm adjusting her jacket “Shall we?”

Reed looked over at the woman he one day would make his wife and smiled.

Johnny fired up the jeep “Let’s go people, because if not I’ve got a date I can go on”

***

“Is that a jeep on the test range?” asked Dr Bruce Banner as he headed over to Dr Igor Starsky’s station

“Always on the ball” said Starsky “Why don’t you go fix that”

The two scientists locked eyes. Banner never really liked the former Russian scientist but his science was top-notch and that’s all that mattered.

“I’ll inform the MP’s” said Banner as he turned to leave when he caught a look of the timer “Oh my god! There’s only thirty seconds left!”

“Oh no!” cried Starsky in fake horror “We’ll have to abort the test”

“You idiot!” scolded Bruce “We’ve gone past the point of no return” Bruce grabbed some goggles and strapped them over his eyes and moved to the viewing area “May god have mercy on your soul Igor”

The gamma bomb exploded and tore Reed Richards, Benjamin Grimm, Susan Storm and Johnny Storm to pieces. The world seemed to stand still, trembling on the brink of infinity as four voices let out ear-splitting screams as gamma radiation permeated, infused and cooked them.

***

Reed Richards sat up in the sick bay “Where am I?”

“You’re in a medical hospital” said the doctor through his radiation suit “You’re lucky to be alive” The doctor's Geiger counter crackled.

“Where’s Ben! Johnny! SUSAN”

“Settle down son” said the doctor

“WHERE IS SUSAN?” yelled Reed, sweat beading on his forehead. The Geiger counter crackled louder “SUSAN!”

“I’m going to give you a sedative to clam you down” said the doctor. Reed backhanded the doctor across the room as his bones enlarged in his body, his skin began to stretch and turn green. The Geiger counter went critical.

“SUSAN!”

“Oh my god” gasped the doctor as a dramatic transformation began to take place.

Nice work, kinda works wit there similar origins too

#7 Posted by 4donkeyjohnson (1652 posts) - - Show Bio

Nice mashup. Question? What colour would Reed be? Green or Blue or Red or Grey?

#8 Posted by batkevin74 (10609 posts) - - Show Bio

@primepower53: Thanks for reading

@tomdickharry1984: That's why I chose them, Rick Jones was actually driving his car out on the testing range and Bruce went out to rescue him

@4donkeyjohnson: I think Reed is green but the others maybe they are other colours hint hint :)

Cool. Like I did Daredevils origin/Banes origin, maybe I could try a mashed-up origin again... hmm... Electro/Hulk!

Bruce Banner was an electrician working on a telepone wire on a rainy night. The pressure, the stress.... just then, a blast of lightning shot down to the telephone wire and sent a jolt of electricity through Bruce.

"Aaaah!" he screamed, as it exploded him. Suddenly, he realized... he wasn't dead.

He had became living electricity.

He was a huge green electric explosion with arms, a head, and legs.

He was out of control... he had become the vicious monster the world would soon know as.... ELECTRO!

Well if it is a mixed up origin as the title suggests and Bruce Banner and Reed Richards are very similar; father issues, rage issues, highly intelligent...I could see a "Reed Smash Puny Humans!"

Hm, I don't know about this one. Not the mash up, that's fine. But you only establish Reed as Hulking out, not all four of them. I suppose it's implied that all four of them will Hulk out from the title being Fantastic Four, but we don't know it for sure until we read it in the Ms Marvel chapter. Still, fun idea. I've never liked the cosmic radiation origin, because I don't like the idea that one source gave four different powers (five, if you count the phasing powers that the Red Ghost later gained from cosmic rays). It makes even less sense when you consider that another form of radiation- gamma rays- gives each person basically the same powers, if slightly different appearances (until the Hulked Out Heroes storyline, where different colors and such came into play). All in all though, yeah, I like the mash up. Added to my FF Long Box - Authors. :)

@cbishop: It's more like nine powers. You forgot the U-Foes

@batkevin74: What happens next? Oh do tell us.

#40 Posted by cbishop (7618 posts) - - Show Bio

@cbishop: It's more like nine powers. You forgot the U-Foes

I couldn't remember if their powers were actually cosmic-ray derived.

#41 Posted by ImpurestCheese (4918 posts) - - Show Bio

@cbishop: They were trying to recreate the experiment that created the Fantastic Four. Their ship was designed to attract cosmic radiation to turn them into super humans.

#42 Posted by cbishop (7618 posts) - - Show Bio

@impurestcheese: Cool, gotcha. I've never understood why they aren't arch-nemeses to the FF, or at least the chief soldiers of Doom.

#43 Posted by ImpurestCheese (4918 posts) - - Show Bio

@cbishop: Bruce Banner prevented them from being even more powerful then they already are. They've never forgiven him for that.

#44 Posted by cbishop (7618 posts) - - Show Bio

@impurestcheese: Meh. They're the perfect counterpoints to the FF- I still think they should be FF villains. Maybe the Ms Marvel of this universe needs a U-Foe? :)

#45 Posted by batkevin74 (10609 posts) - - Show Bio

@impurestcheese: Yeah why didn't the U-Foes get Fantastic Four powers? They got similar but totally different. But it does make for a cool idea for a singluar villain to take on Ms Marvel called The U-Foe. Thanks

@cbishop: Well it is just implied and there are references in Ms Marvel and upcoming Dr Doom about the Hulk's. And if my mind can spin it into my fingers, maybe a MUO ongoing about all my creations with explanations

@batkevin74: You're welcome for the "U-Foe." Looking forward to it.
