The Fantastic Four is a team of superheroes in comic books published by Marvel Comics. They were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and premiered as Marvel’s first super-team in The Fantastic Four #1. The original members of the team were given their powers in an accident in outer space, becoming the stretchy Mister Fantastic (Reed Ricards), the disappearing Invisible Woman (Sue Storm), the flaming Human Torch (Johnny Storm), and The Thing (Ben Grimm) a strong, stony monster. Frequent allies include the Silver Surfer, She-Hulk, Namor, Medusa, and H.E.R.B.I.E. The team’s costumes are blue with a number "4" on the chest. The Fantastic Four have appeared in several TV series and films, including Fantastic Four (2005).
