* KavorkaMan: Though not to the extent of {{Wolverine}}, Ben has had women find him very attractive, not because of his looks, but because of his personality and the fact that he's quite a gentleman.

* ArchEnemy: Doctor Doom.



* KarmaHoudini: For the most part during the {{Comicbook/Civil War}} storyline. He did some pretty heinous things without any repercussions.
** A certain level of FanonDiscontinuity will do that, though.



* NighInvulnerability: Mister Fantastic's skin is virtually impervious to laceration or punctures unless he willfully relaxes his reflexive control over small areas of his body. In that case, scalpels and ordinary needles can penetrate his skin.
** Due to the great malleability and elasticity of his molecular structure, Mister Fantastic is able to absorb the impact of any type of man-made ballistic projectile by deforming his body along the path of the projectile's trajectory at the point of initial impact. He can also contain explosions by enveloping them and allowing their force to expand him.



** This was also [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in the mini-series Fantastic Four: True Story, where Reed said at one point; "This will require me to create an entirely new field of scientific study. Give me a couple of days."
** Middle-lampshaded when Reed told Hank Pym he's the best biochemist in the world, so he would need weeks to be as good as him. Pym comments it's no wonder that people hate Reed.



* RubberMan: His body can stretch.
* ScienceHero: He uses science in the name of heroism.

alter his form in a matter of seconds, often much less (depending on the complexity of the shape), and revert to his normal humanoid shape within a similar time. The greater the distance he stretches or the more extended the size of the object he becomes, the weaker his overall strength becomes.
* ScienceHero: He uses science in the name of heroism.heroism and has always considered his mind to be his true super-power.



* TheSmartGuy: Even by Marvel standards where everyone seems to have a minimum IQ of 240, Reed is recognised as the go to guy for intelligence.

* HelloNurse



* MamaBear: '''DO NOT''' mess with her children. Biological or adopted.
** At one point in the comics the government bars Reed and Sue from their home and their children. They call in the Avengers to do so. Ten of them, in fact, which might look like overkill at first. And then Sue loses her temper, and one panel later anyone not named Thor or Hulk is knocked flat. The original Torch intervenes before she seriously injures anyone.

to:

* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: Suffered from this before getting her force field power.power because her only power was {{Invisibility}}, so the team was put into situations where stealth was required so her power could come off as being useful.



* {{Xenafication}}

to:

* {{Xenafication}}{{Xenafication}}: She was originally TheChick of the team with a near useless power of invisibility. Creator/StanLee and Creator/JackKirby took partial steps to fix that early on giving her force field projecting powers. However, it was Creator/JohnByrne who really powered her up by having her [[SwissArmySuperpower nifty new ways of using her powers]] and learning to get aggressive enough to really use them well. Today, she is now considered one of the most powerful superheroes of the ''Franchise/MarvelUniverse'' and even the character of ''Doctor Doom'' underestimates her at his peril.



* TheWoobie: In universe, no less.

* SpontaneousWeaponCreation: One of the many possible uses of her force fields. In one ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}''/''Fantastic Four'' miniseries, she has a MamaBear moment and uses a force sword to slay a Brood queen in close combat, leaving the males of both teams rather shocked.

* 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/{{X-Men}}.

* WhatTheHellDad: Often by Reed. See PoorCommunicationKills. He also prompted his daughter-in-law Sue to use her powers to what were perceived to be dangerous levels, and impersonated Doctor Doom.

* HonoraryUncle: Isn't related to either Reed or Sue, but both the Richard kids call him their uncle. He's lived with them since before they were born and took part in raising them, so he might as well be a blood relative at this point.
-->'''Franklin:''' My middle name's Benjamin.... Does that mean we're related, Unca Ben?\\
'''Ben:''' .... Works fer me, kid. Works fer me.
