Biography

The only son of Nathaniel and Evelyn Richards displayed great promise almost immediately. His mother died when Reed was only seven years old and the young man plunged himself into his studies as a way to bury his pain and use as a self-affirming tool. To even his own father's surprise, Reed excelled like few others and gained several degrees in assorted science including chemistry, biology, and his favorite, physics from as far ranging universities as Harvard, Columbia, and the California Institute of Technology.

But at age 18, Reed went to complete his doctorate work at Empire State University and this is where he came to meet the others who would make up the Fantastic Four when he rented a room from Sue Storm's aunt.

Sadly, Nathaniel Richards disappeared shortly after Reed completed his doctorate and left his son with a billion dollar inheritance. Rather than sit on his wealth, he began to invest his fortune, betting on his own ability to create.

With his friends by his side, Reed took a test rocket out into space in one of the first commercial projects of such grandeur. Unfortunately, Reed miscalculated the presence of a cosmic storm that enveloped their craft. In addition to the other gifts his friends were given, Reed had his DNA altered and gained an unbelievable power of elasticity. In truth, however, Reed was relieved that despite his mistake he was able to get his friends home alive.

Shortly after their powers came to be, the four heroes banded together and formed the Fantastic Four, a group of superheroes devoted to making the world a better place.

Character Details

Reed can be many things. He's simultaneously a warm friend and family member, who can be cold and calculating when confronted with a problem. He's incredibly focused, but can also be absent-minded when distracted. At times he can come off as aloof and laconic, and other times a complete nerd.

He's an affable guy and always eager to lend a helping hand to those in need, and has taken a fondness to helping out newer heroes get their start. He believes in this grand experiment of the superhero as a way of promoting safety on Earth and serves as an inspiration.
