Dr. Doom has discovered a new method for trying to destroy the Fantastic Four — body swapping. His first victim is his archnemesis, Reed. Now the scientist must escape from Doom's castle, make his way to New York, and convince the others of his true identity. Oh, and this is also the day Susan asked a film crew in to shoot "A Day In The Life of the Fantastic Four."
This episode contains the following tropes:
- Big "NO!": Reed, in Doom's body, while being locked in a container. Although it is cut off while knocking on it.
- Big "WHAT?!": Reed yells this one when he realized Doom cancelled all of his lectures while in his body.Reed: He did WHAT?!
- ...But He Sounds Handsome: Doom, while in Reed's body, says that trying to understand Doom's motives and mental processes would be impossible for them.
- Don't You Dare Pity Me!:Reed: In a way, I pity him.
- Evil Twin: One of the excuses Johnny gave the camera crew for why Reed seemingly just tried to wipe out the city was that it was his evil twin.
- "Freaky Friday" Flip: the plot of the story is Doom swapping bodies with Reed.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: by rearranging Reed's lab, Doom allowed him to see a way to get rid of the problem.
- Logic Bomb: Reed employs one on the Doombots to get them to let him pass.Doombot: By the word of Doom, none may pass, including Doom.Reed: Do you dare disobey the word of Doom, you creatures? Self-destruct. (Beat) Self-destruct now.Doombot: Doom's word is law.
- Spot the Imposter
- That Was Not a Dream: Reed, knocked out while trying to enter the Baxter Building, initially thinks he's just had a nightmare. He realizes it isn't when he sees "himself" standing in front of him.
- We Are Not Going Through That Again: Another of the robots that helped with the body-swap is buzzing around the Baxter Building...but Ben smashes it like a mosquito.
