In Landis' pages, "Fantastic Four" kicks off with an action sequence which leads to Reed Richards, Susan Storm, Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm blasting off into space illegally. This ties directly to the four's origin from the comics, where a series of cosmic rays gave them their superabilities. In the final version, which is now in theaters, the group receives their powers from interdimensional travel.
