'''''The Terrifics''''' is a comic book series that began in February of 2018, created by Ivan Reis (''ComicBook/BlackestNight'', ''ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}'', ''[[ComicBook/JusticeLeagueOfAmericaRebirth Justice League of America]]'') and Jeff Lemire (''ComicBook/AnimalMan'', ''ComicBook/GreenArrow'', ''ComicBook/OldManLogan''), published by Creator/DCComics. It spins out of the ''ComicBook/DarkNightsMetal'' event and is part of the Creator/DarkMatter2017 line. Beginning in April 2019, the creative team will change, with the comic being written by New Super-Man's Gene Luen Yang and drawn by Stephen Segovia. This is due to Jeff Lemire wanting to focus more heavily on his creator-owned work.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperheroTeamUniform: Plastic Man changes his outfit to white and black to match Mr. Terrific after they become a team. In Phantom Girl's case, she is already wearing white and black, while Metamorpho doesn't bother because of his shapeshifter powers.


* ShoutOut: When the team is in the Dark Multiverse, the first surface they land on is actually a gigantic being with its chest gollowed out. When Plas looks at it from a distance by stretching, it resembles ComicBook/{{Galactus}}, which is fitting given ''The Terrific'''s status as DC's Fantastic Four.

* TheSingularity: One arc dealt with them fighting an AI with a god complex called Noosphere. Created from stolen T-Sphere tech by Simon Stagg, the Noosphere wants to assimilate the minds of every living thing in the world. Apparently this has happened across multiple planets at some point of technological development, and the consciousness of the Biosphere from each one attempted to fight back but failed.


* HotterAndSexier: Inverted. Linnya's costume is very obviously based on Phantom Girl's Retroboot costume, but Tinya's shutter-style CleavageWindow has been filled in with black.

* * TookALevelInJerkass: The team's male characters are noticeably more mean and standoffish than usually seen elsewhere, especially Mr. Terrific, possibly as an effect of the team's inability to physically go their own way. This is probably meant to be the original FFs prickliness with each other turned UpToEleven.

* ChainedHeat: The detonation of Tom Strong's antennae bound the Terrifics together with a strange otherworldly energy and if even one of them is far away from the rest by more than a few dozen feet, they will all experience excruciating pain.

* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: To Marvel's Fantastic Four, which even the name invokes. Character-wise, Mr. Terrific is a strictly rational scientist in the vein of Mr. Fantastic while Plastic Man is a wise-cracking man-child evoking Johnny Storm and Metamorpho is a brooding monstrosity similar to the Thing. Also, Plastic Man and Mr. Fantastic share similar powers.

The team forms when Michael Holt attempts to stop Stagg Industries from interfering with the Dark Multiverse, a dimension where nightmares are made real for a time before dying. Assisting Stagg Industries is Rex Mason, and brought along by Holt is a dormant Plastic Man. After a mishap causes all three to fall into the Dark Multiverse, Plastic Man is revived by its energies, and reveals that he'd been stuck in his dormant egg form for "a few years". One of Holt's T-spheres detects a multivers distress signal, and the trio go to investigate. They encounter a Bgztlian, Linnya Wazzo, who has the ability to phase through objects and between dimensions, but is currently stuck in her intangible form and has been trapped in the Dark Multiverse for quite some time.. All four eventually find the distress signal, left by Tom Strong, saying that they may be the last chance for the universe.

Added DiffLines:

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: The team is literally unable to separate by more than a mile without exploding which exacerbates the fact that none of them particularly like each other, especially Rex and Eel.
