Quote1 ...There is an infinite number of variables in the multiverse where destiny has taken unexpected turns. Come and I shall show you four more... Quote2
-- Uatu the Watcher
  • The Watcher revisits an earlier issue of "What if..?" from 1977, whereupon the Fantastic Four gained different superpowers. After showing a parallel universe where the cosmic rays had no effect on the foursome, the Watcher then displays four more alterate timelines in which the quartet was mutated all in the same manner.

Synopsis for "What If... The Fantastic Four all had the same power as Human Torch?"

The story opens with the crash of Reed Richards' rocket. Johnny suddenly bursts into flame, but is unharmed. This happens to all four on board, and they formed the Fantastic Four. They defeated Mole Man, his monsters, and the Skrulls with ease. But when they fight the Miracle Man, they burn his monster to the ground. The fire spreads to inhabited buildings, trapping a baby inside. The 4 defeat the Miracle Man, and set out to stop the blaze. While the male members try to absorb the fire into their bodies, Sue enters the building to save the child. But it had already died. Then the Fantastic Four split up, with Reed working on inventions, Sue becoming a nun, Johnny becoming a race-car driver, and Ben joins the Avengers as the Human Torch since Namor and Captain America never reappeared.

Synopsis for "What If... The Fantastic Four all had the stretching power of Mister Fantastic?"

After the crash of Reed's rocket, he reaches to comfort Susan, but both of them bend elastically, Reed's arm reaching past her, and Sue flexing in half. Then Ben turns flat and grows in height, while Johnny bends around a tree. When Reed proposes that they help people with their powers, Ben and Sue turn him down. The quartet split up; there was no Fantastic Four in this reality. Ben and Sue became a couple, and never used their powers. Reed threw himself into inventions and only stretched in the lab. And Johnny went public, becoming an entertainer called Mr. Fantastic.

Synopsis for "What If... The Fantastic Four had all become monsters like the Thing?"

After the ship crashes to Earth, the scientists are barely able to move due to the heavy gravity imposed by the cosmic rays. Ben Grimm starts mutating into the Thing. Enraged, he shouts, "Look what ya did to me, Richards!" and starts a fistfight, only to met by an apelike Thing creature of equal pugility, which is Reed Richards having been mutated as well. The fight between the two Things is interrupted by Johnny, who says the mutation is happening to him as well. When the three Things look for Sue, they are all shocked to see a green-furred, red-eyed monster, and realize that Sue has mutated into a Thing as well that resembles the Man-Thing. Unlike the mutation of the males, Sue has also been rendered mute and unfeeling with her transformation. Ben sadly remarks that he remembered how beautiful Susan was, and now that is lost with her voice. The Things make their way back to civilization, where they come across a police car. Frightened, one policeman demands to see some ID, whereas an arrogant Reed smashes the hood of squad car and remarks "That's my ID!" The policeman's partner asks if they ought to open fire, only to be told by the first policeman that he is going to radio the State Guard to deal with those monsters. The male Things boast of their victory, but realize they will probably get in a shootout with the military if they remain. Reed uses his last rationale to return to his apartment and obtain the rocket car he has been working on. With sadness, he replies they are outcasts from civilization due to their appearance. The story ends with a narration that the four Things flew the rocket car to the only place on Earth they were welcome, Monster Island, and resided there for the remainder of their lives.

Synopsis for "What If... The Fantastic Four shared the powers of the Invisible Woman?"

The story begins at S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters: where a net is dropped over the building, and a voice calls for Reed Richards, alone. Nick Fury yells for Susan to assemble her teammates: and she calls Reed Richards: Head of Laboratories, Johnny Storm: Head of Vehicles, and Ben Grimm: Head of Training. It is revealed by Uatu the Watcher that Nick Fury was waiting when the ship crashed, and he had them help found S.H.I.E.L.D. with jobs based on civilian expertise. Dr. Doom lifts Reed into the ship, and unknowingly, the other three. Doom takes them to Latveria. Suddenly, in his castle, the alarm sounds, and Doom sends Reed into the basement, and reveals the other three. Ben and Johnny fight Doom while Sue searches for Reed. She finds him, and the battle rages on. Doom pulls out a sonic gun, and Reed turns it invisible, while Ben rams him with a force field. He passes out. Doom is returned to S.H.I.E.L.D., and so ends the story.
