YMMV: The Fantastic Four (1967)
  • Awesome Music- The theme song.
  • Fridge Horror: Doctor Doom steals a missile from the Baxter Building, and tries to fly it back to Latveria. However, since Reed had to remove and repair a component, Doom crash-lands the missile in the middle of New York instead. While the Four and the commissioner rejoice that Doom failed to make a good getaway, they don't consider how many people the explosion could have killed.
  • Memetic Mutation: "I MUST FLEE"Explanation 
  • Narm: Doctor Doom's voice sounds inappropriately cheesy by today's standards.
  • Tearjerker/Heartwarming Moment: When Doctor Doom aims a Power Nullifier at Reed and Johnny, Ben takes the hit, turning him back into a human. Doom offers Ben the chance to go out and live a normal life like before getting hit by the cosmic rays. However, after Ben sees footage of Doom placing the rest of the Fantastic Four in Death Traps, Ben proclaims that spending an eternity as the Thing would prove worth it if it means keeping his friends safe, and uses the reverse setting on the power nullifier to restore his strength-and grotesqueness.
  • What an Idiot: Doctor Doom doesn't bother disguising his voice when replacing the photographer at Sue's fashion shoot, but she still doesn't recognize him until after she falls for the trap he planted.
