50 years ago today, the ファンタスティック・フォー,
Fantastic Four debuted. I've read the origin a few times in reprints (I was only 2 when it came out) and have always held a soft spot for the Fabulous Foursome. Sure Reed's a jerk
It certainly would have been nice if there was an actual FF in existence to celebrate their Golden Anniversary but since there isn't, I've scammed a version of their origin story and meeting with the Mole Man (one of my all-time favourite villains) from a little mag that came with the first DVD.
There's also a Power Pack story and a tale where they meet The Impossible Man, but they don't fit into today's theme.
As an added bonus, here is a Pin-up of a Fantastic Four/ Galaxy 999 mashup by 松本 零士, Leiji Matsumoto!
