Their number one recurring enemy is Victor von Doom ('''Doctor Doom''' to you), who was [[EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether at college with Reed and Ben]] and holds an almighty grudge against Reed for "sabotaging" one of his experiments: the experiment actually failed because of Doom's own error, which Reed noticed and tried to warn him about, but Doom's pride will not permit him to accept the truth. Reed may have Doom (narrowly) beat for the title of World's Smartest Man, but Doom is well ahead for the title of World's ''Vainest'' ([[FridgeLogic though he's not the one calling himself "Mr. Fantastic"...]]). It really didn't help that the experiment in question literally blew up in Doom's face, [[MinorInjuryOverreaction marring his previously flawless good looks]]. These days he wears an iron mask at all times, usually as part of a full suit of [[PoweredArmor battle armor]].

As the first series set in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse proper, it marked the debut of a surprisingly large number of {{the Verse}}'s most popular concepts and characters. Case in point: the recurring alien races the Skrull, the Kree and ComicBook/{{the Inhumans}} all first appeared as adversaries of the Four, the ComicBook/SilverSurfer first appeared as a friend-turned-enemy of the team before ultimately getting his own series, ComicBook/{{the Watcher}} appears every time Marvel needs a narrator, and the iconic SufficientlyAdvancedAliens ComicBook/{{Galactus}} debuted in the classic story "ComicBook/TheComingOfGalactus". To this day, Doctor Doom and Galactus are popular candidates whenever the writers at Marvel need a villain [[TheDreaded big and bad enough]] to unite the heroes for a CrisisCrossover.

* RunsOnIgnorance: In one arc, Reed Richards was helpless against Doctor Doom's magical prowess, so he had to learn magic from Doctor Strange, however he kept trying to analyze it scientifically and logically, making his results less than impressive. He only managed to use his magical skills to defeat Doom once he admitted that he had no idea what he was doing.
