The Fantastic Four is Marvel Comics' flagship superhero team, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and debuting in The Fantastic Four #1 (Nov. 1961).
Although the group's membership has occasionally changed temporarily, it almost always consists of these four core friends and family-members, who gained superpowers after being exposed to cosmic rays during an outer space science mission:
* Mister Fantastic (Reed Richards), the leader of the group, a scientist who can stretch his body.
* The Invisible Woman (Susan Richards, née Storm; originally the Invisible Girl), Reed Richard's wife, and the team's second-in-command, who can become invisible at will and create invisible force fields.

* The Human Torch (Johnny Storm), Sue's brother, who can surround himself in flames and fly.
* The Thing (Ben Grimm), their grumpy friend with a heart of gold, who possesses superhuman strength and durability, but with a monstrous, craggy exterior that looks as if made of orange rock.
Since its introduction — in which the groundbreaking team did not even hew to the convention of superhero costumes its first two issues — the Fantastic Four has been portrayed as a somewhat dysfunctional yet loving family. Uniquely at the time, and also breaking convention with comic-book archetypes, its members would squabble and even hold animosities both deep and petty toward one another at times, though ultimately truly caring for and supporting each other.

The team launched the revival of Marvel Comics in the early 1960s, giving it a pivotal place in the history of American comic books. The Fantastic Four have have remained more or less popular since, and have been adapted into other media, including three animated television series, an aborted 1990s low-budget film, and a major-studio motion picture, Fantastic Four (2005).
The comic-book series, which famously added the hyperbolic tagline "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine!" above the title starting with issue #4, dropped the "The" from the cover logo with #15, becoming simply Fantastic Four.
