** Galactus was originally supposed to another threat from space, but has since become one of the most iconic villains in Marvel and like the above mentioned Doom is not limited to battle the Fantastic Four.

* CompleteMonster: The [[{{Sadist}} Marquis of Death]], from ''Master of Doom'' by Creator/MarkMillar & Bryan Hitch, is a minor ArcVillain of the Fantastic Four, but handily makes his mark as one of the most monstrous individuals across Marvel Comics. Originally one version of the brain damaged Clyde Wyncham on an alternate Earth, the Marquis discovered his love of slaughter after murdering dozens of heroes and villains when his mind was fully returned to him, and became dedicated to [[OmnicidalManiac killing as many things as possible]]. First massacring every single one of the 7 billion people on his own Earth, the Marquis spent the next billion years traveling to various Earths then slowly exterminating all life on each and every one, always drawing out the deaths of heroes and forcing them into {{sadistic choice}}s for his own sick amusement. Through this, the Marquis annihilates millions of universe and amasses an unfathomable body count before finally showing up on the 616 Earth, where he annihilates all of Latveria before viciously executing his loyal servant ComicBook/DoctorDoom for going too slow in destroying 616's heroes. The Marquis goes on to torment the Fantastic Four with the millions of versions of their loves ones he has murdered, then tries to manipulate Mr. Fantastic into compromising his morality for the life of his universe, after which he attempts to simply kill this Earth as well then continue his dimension-wide omnicide spree. His power surpassed only by his sadism and evil, the Marquis of Death has one of the most horrifying body counts across all media, and handily sticks out as the most evil Fantastic Four villain.

** Dr. Doom to the point that he actually overshadows the Fantastic Four themselves in popularity and is often outsourced to other heroes like ComicBook/IronMan and ComicBook/SpiderMan. After ''ComicBook/SecretWars'' Doom more or less became the Earth-based BigBad for the Marvel Universe itself.

* CanonDiscontinuity: It probably isn't a coincidence that most of Mark Millar's run that hasn't just been ignored outright has been written off in the years since.

* HilariousInHindsight: In 1966, Creator/JohnVernon voiced Namor in WesternAnimation/TheMarvelSuperHeroes, which featured an adaptation of a Fantastic Four story that featured Dr. Doom. Here he was the first of three to voice Dr. Doom. Alas, Namor and Doom did not appeared in the same episode otherwise this could have been a passing of the torch.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: It's hard to believe how much this comic actually played with Superhero tropes at the time it originally debuted, and in the 1990s, it makes the Fantastic Four look flat out tame in comparison. For starters, we had a superhero with a somewhat monstrous appearance (The Thing), the fact that the team actually spent a lot of their time fighting with each other, and that they didn't even use secret identities. Now after seeing ''way'' more Team angst and more deformed superheroes, the Fantastic Four looks almost safe in comparison.

* ContinuityLockOut: There are some cases where the writers seemed to assume most of the kids watching the show were familiar with the comics, and thus didn't bother explaining things in detail. A big example is the Comicbook/GhostRider's guest spot. He shows up out of nowhere with zero foreshadowing, gets no real explanation about who he is, where he comes from or how his powers work, and then just takes down Galactus and leaves.

** Kang's iconic costume has always been fairly goofy, but in his earliest appearances his thigh-high boots were skin-tight and striped purple-and-black, resembling nothing so much as harlequin motley tights. Yowza.
