This idea grew beyond just a jumping off point to a Power Pack campaign, so here are other ideas for alternate Fantastic Four’s. Some are successful, putting together Fantastic Four’s blend of family, exploration of dimensions, zones and worlds, super-science and super-heroism and some just aren’t but here are some ideas. Feel free to put down our own ideas for alternate Fantastic Four’s in the comments.
Magneto, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, Vision
I love the idea of the most messed up family in the Marvel Universe all in one place. Plus it sets up Dr. Doom vs. Magneto.
Captain America, Winter Soldier, Black Widow, Patriot
The All-American family? Eh, I’m lukewarm on this one and the science/explorer angle just isn’t there.
Luke Cage, Jennifer Jones, Danny Rand, Rand’s long lost daughter
Heroes for Hire venture into other dimensions and figure out what family means to them and maybe Rand’s daughter is a scientist.
Storm, Black Panther, their mutant twin daughters
Move the Baxter Building to Wakanda? Why not?
Captain America, Iron Man, Winter Soldier, War Machine
This only works, to my mind, if Steve and Tony are a couple.
Hulk, Red Hulk, Red She-Hulk, A-Bomb or She-Hulk
The gamma irradiated Smash Family, all being able to press over 100 tons, and all wrestling with epic anger issues. Huh.
Namor, Sue Richards, Franklin Richards, Human Torch (the Golden Age Human Torch)
Something happened that killed Johnny, Reed and Ben and turned Franklin into some kind of hulking monster. Then Namor moved in and we’ve got a super-heroic Hamlet on our hands. Man, the more I think about this one, the more I dig it.
“Alas poor Mar-Vell, I knew him well, Leech.”
Dr. Doom or maybe Silver Surfer, Franklin Richards, Valeria Richards, The Thing
I really like the idea of Doom taking over and the kids stepping in after a catastrophe takes away Sue and Reed.
Punisher, Danny Ketch, Johnny Blaze, and one survivor from the original FF family.
The original Fantastic Four were killed and they gathered a group to get vengeance.
