Back to Work

Go Back To Work With The Fantastic Four

From teaching to construction work, this family of four has explored many different careers!

It's Monday, and that means that you've had to find the strength to shake off the after effects of a weekend well spent just to get back into shape for the weekday work-athon. It's tough, sure, but it's a fact of life – one that isn't lost on super humans either. Yep, Mondays mean back to work for super heroes too, as they trade in their uniforms for something more business casual.

As Marvel's first family, the Fantastic Four have a higher in-universe profile than most every other hero around. After all, they got the modern day super hero ball rolling way back in 1961's FANTASTIC FOUR #1. Because of their status and Reed Richards' immeasurable scientific contributions to the world, this family of four has punched more mole people than clocks in their history. But just because their careers as heroes get all the attention doesn't mean they've never held down a 9 to 5.

As some of the most prominent people on Earth, the Fantastic Four have a lot going on business-wise. Licensing, marketing, and patent revenue all allowed for the FF to maintain their day-to-day operations, and in FANTASTIC FOUR #61, Sue Storm gave Johnny Storm responsibilities that he could not shirk by making him Fantastic Four, Inc.'s Chief Financial Officer.

When the Fantastic Four briefly went broke, they all had to figure out a way to cope without their savings accounts and the security of the Baxter Building. Mr. Fantastic became a stay at home dad/scientist, the Thing turned to construction work, and the Invisible Woman became a high school English teacher. Johnny Storm, however, took the opportunity to ditch CFO life and chase his original dream job: being a celebrity.

Recently, Reed Richards turned his eye towards the future and opened up a school within the FF's headquarters called the Future Foundation. After dropping the mic with his mission statement at the Singularity Conference, the Four all went about recruiting students to fill the fledgling institute. There, the next generation of geniuses all began to learn from the best and come up with ways to improv the world – and also save it, from time to time.

See how the FF deal with the fallout from ORIGINAL SIN in FANTASTIC FOUR #6, on sale this Wednesday!
