Once upon a time, Reed Richards, Sue Storm, Ben Grimm and Johnny Storm stole a rocket ship and launched it into space. Whereupon it went through a cosmic radiation storm surrounding the Earth and crash landed back, giving the four strange and unusual powers. They became the Fantastic Four.

And claiming that Marvel History will be destroyed in the process.
Oh, Dan Slott, what have you done now…
