Powers and Abilities
- Plasticity: Mister Fantastic possesses the ability to convert the mass of his entire body into a highly malleable state at will. His body's respiration and circulatory systems function at these distorted extremes is as yet unknown. Mister Fantastic can alter his form in a matter of seconds, often much less (depending on the complexity of the shape), and revert to his normal humanoid shape within a similar time. The greater the distance he stretches or the more extended the size of the object he becomes, the weaker his overall strength becomes. Mister Fantastic's transformation to a malleable state is flexible and nearly instantaneous. If he was at his normal form and taken unaware by machine gun fire, his body would still absorb the bullets' impact through radical deformation. Mister Fantastic's skin is virtually impervious to laceration or punctures unless he willfully relaxes his controllable body over small areas of his body. Due to his great malleability and elasticity of his molecular structure, Mister Fantastic is able to absorb the impact of any type of man-made ballistic projectiles by deforming his body. As well as contain explosions, grapple, canopy, parachuting, gliding, cushioning, and form in a semi-liquid state.
- Super-Genius Intelligence: Dr. Reed Richards is one of the most intelligent beings on the planet. Reed possesses a mastery of electrical, mechanical and aerospace engineering, electronics, chemistry, all levels of physics, and human and alien biology. Even his natural mental abilities were greatly augmented by the Cosmic Rays that gave him powers, his hyper intellect has granted him to invent any technological achievements quickly. He is a visionary theoretician and inspired machinist, he has made breakthroughs in such varied fields as space travel, time travel, extra-dimensional travel, biochemistry, robotics, computers, synthetic polymers, communications, mutations, transportation, holography, energy generation, spectral analysis and more. He is one of the few people on Earth to be an expert on other dimensions and the methods by which to travel to and through them. Reed’s patents are so valuable that he is able to bankroll the Fantastic Four, Inc., without any undue financial interest. Not only has Reed proven himself to be a genius in virtually every science native on Earth, he has shown himself to be more knowledgeable in some of the most highly advanced alien civilizations in the known universe. He has often been stated to be the smartest man on Earth.
