After visiting his old high school in Brooklyn, New York, billionaire Victor Van Doom announces that three of its students - 17 year-old Reed Richards and 18 year-old twins Johnny & Suzanne ‘Sue’ Storm are to accompany him and seasoned astronaut, Colonel Ben Grimm, to his space station. Richards is chosen for his scientific know-how, which is close to genius level, whilst the Storm siblings have been selected for their athletic ability, making them potential future NASA astronauts.
