The movie Fantastic Four bombed, but Fox still has plans to make Fantastic Four 2 in 2017. So it's a good time to look back on the most powerful members of the team with this new infographic sent to us.

Who Are the Fantastic Four?

The Fantastic Four is a superhero team that first appeared in The Fantastic Four #1 back in 1961. The birth of the idea was that, after the success of DC Comics "Justice League" writer-editor Stan Lee was asked by Marvel Comics to make a superhero team. He and artist Jack Kirby created the companies first superhero team and called them the "Fantastic Four". The original story was that four people traveled in a spaceship to outer space and are exposed to cosmic rays. The four crash and, using their new-found powers, dedicate their lives to helping people as heroes. The team is made up of Mister Fantastic (Reed Richards), the genius who can stretch his body into any shape he can imagine; the Invisible Woman (Susan "Sue" Storm), the mother hen who can turn herself invisible and control powerful invisible force fields; the Human Torch (Johnny Storm), Sue's flashy younger brother, who can control fire and fly; the Thing (Ben Grimm) the gruff friend who has superhuman strength and is covered by an impenetrable rock-like skin.

Over the years the team membership has changed and over a dozen other superheroes have joined the team like Luke Cage, Black Panther and Wolverine. We know we'll never see She-Hulk or Storm in the next movie, but we might see Mrs. Thing (not "Ms. Thang" if you're keeping track). The following infographic by ladbrokes.com gives an overview of the most powerful team members of the Fantastic Four. It's a little off in spots like Danny Ketch ("Ghost Rider") was in the Fantastic Four along with Johnny Blaze, but it's still a fun graphic.
