* VoluntaryShapeshifter: A really powerful one. To the point that he resembles a RealityWarper, and can travel through space unaided.

* VoluntaryShapeshifter: A really powerful one. To the point that he resembles a RealityWarper, and can travel through space unaided. Oddly, the one thing he apparently can't do is change colors -- all of his transformations are still some shade and combination of green and purple.

* KidAppealCharacter: When the series started, he was the teenager in a cast of adults. Early on in the series, he was extremely popular and was the BreakoutCharacter with his own {{spinoff}} within a year after the series started. His popularity was one of the reasons why Marvel created other teen superheroes like {{Spider-Man}} and the ComicBook/XMen.

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Despite his reputation of a joke, he has proven himself quite dangerous since he started to use his glue in lethal ways. He has successfully framed {{Spider-Man}} for his murder once, which forced Spidey to take four temporary secret identities.

* RoguesGalleryTransplant: At first, he was exclusively a foe of the Torch and the Thing. It didn't take him long to include Reed and Sue in his grudge, though. He later became a recurring foe of {{Spider-Man}}, but fared no better against the wall-crawler, either.

* AlternateUniverseReedRichardsIsAwesome: In universes when Reed is not bound by StatusQuoIsGod, he's capable of even more amazing scientific accomplishments than in the main 616 verse.
* [[spoiler:AntiVillain: Becomes this in the 'Perfect world' storyline. While he still has good intentions and didn't push the button himself; it doesn't change the fact (as he himself points out) that he helped murder an entire team of superheroes and destroy an inhabited planet.]]

verse. Gets deconstructed in Hickman's run, where every other Reed Richards is awesome because they've either morally corrupt arseholes, or they abandoned their families in the name of the Greater Good.

* GiverOfLameNames: When playing superhero with Leech, he gave them the names "Hyperstorm" and "Kid Incredible". A future version of Franklin who happened to be watching commented on the names.



* ScienceHero: During ''Axis'', she thwarted a hate plague in Latveria with SCIENCE (and a ray gun).



* TookALevelInKindness: In a more peculiar example; [[spoiler: when we see her future self, she certainly frowns upon Valerie making plans to conquer the Kree, so it's possible that she grew up out of her TokenEvilTeammate status as she matured.]]

* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Downplayed. His issues were already there when he got his powers - they only magnified them. If anything, [[SanityHasAdvantages when he's more stable, he pulls off better feats]]. [[spoiler:In ''[[JonathanHickmansAvengers New Avengers]]'', it's revealed that this was deliberate on the part of the Beyonders - as Molecule Men across the multiverse would go insane eventually, and when detonate - annihilating their respective universes.]]

* BadassNormal: Of the Annihilators, Ronan comes the closest, since everyone else is a FlyingBrick. He spends most of the miniseries grumbling about his lack of power compared to everyone else.



--> Ronan: I am Ronan the Accuser. Wherever I set my foot, ''there'' Kree law holds sway.

* LoveCannotOvercome: He and Crystal legitimately love one another, but after their separation in Hickman's run, and the destruction of Hala by J-son Quill, Ronan is broken to try and restart their marriage.



--> Kl'rt: (Looking at the cannon) You can destroy a moon with that. I'm flattered.

* DistinguishedGentlemansPipe: Reed used to smoke a pipe from time to time, before it became [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad PC]] not to smoke.

** Happens to him again when he reappears in TheUnbelievableGwenpool. [[spoiler: After readopting his Paste Pot Pete persona to hide from his deeds as the Trapster, hes dragged into Gutterspace, the endless void between comic panels that only Gwenpool seems able to navigate.]]

** In Ben's case, while he does enjoy being the idol and helping out his friends, it does mean the everyday normal moments of his life are alot more difficult because of his powers. Presumably, it does add up over time.

Added DiffLines:

* DoingInTheScientist: His puppets' powers were originally explained as being due to their [[ILoveNuclearPower radioactivity]]. Apparently realizing how implausible that sounded, even by comic book logic, later stories attributed it to being [[LeakingCanOfEvil infused with magic from proximity]] to the base of Wundagore Mountain.

* AmnesiacDissonance: As an insect-like being, one of his life stages is an attractive human form with no memory (and in fact a righteous disdain towards) his real identity. When he matures into his adult form he shortly forgets that personality too (but not completely, the love he developed for Blink).



* BadBoss: Most infamously in ''Anihilation'', where he slaughtered an entire part of his fleet because ''it took them too much time to conquer a planet''.

* TheConstant: The Negative Zone is a multiversal singularity, meaning all instances of it seen from alternate universes are the same one. Subsequently, this means all Annihilus seen in what-if stories are the same one.



* JokerImmunity: Has died multiple times, it never sticks. Whenever he is killed his hive just births a new one.



* WingedHumanoid

* WingedHumanoidWingedHumanoid: Notably they're more like a bat's than an insect's.
