The What if the Fantastic Four had different powers? wiki last edited by X35 on 04/24/13 12:25PM View full history

The issue begins with the FF foiling a robbery by a gang of armed Thugs. It goes as you would suspect , after wards Johnny Storm poses the question “What would have happened if they all had different superpowers .

This leads us to the Watchers explanation of how the Fantastic Four got their powers, and leads us to the point where everything changed. In this case Ben Grimm gets dragon like wings, Johnny Storm becomes a Colossus like metal man, Susan gets Reeds old stretching ability, and Reed Richards becomes an actual big brain, making his romance with Susan very impossible.

We are given a glimpse into the differences of the battles with Mole Man and the Skrulls would go, only to get to the meat and potatoes of the story. Their encounter with Doc Doom. Doom realizes the brain is Reed Richards and wanting revenge on him plans to use his new powers to turn him into a thinking computer, bound to the “whims and will of Victor Von Doom”.

A alternate twist to a classic story. 0

This is one of the few issue of What If I have read. This one was unique it showed a differnet take to the Fantastic Four getting their powers. I liked the idea of them getting different powers, especially Sue, and Ben's new abilites. Sue gained the ability to stretch like Reed, Ben gained wings and could fly, Johnny became a creature made of living metal, and Reed became a brain with telepathy abilites (yeah I know weird). Of course this shows them battlying one of their most nefarious enemies ...
