|“||I learned that the difference between living and dying is managing fear. Not being so afraid of losing the things you love that you hold them too tight. I used to believe in universal contraction. Entropy and the end of all things. Well, I changed my mind. I'm letting go. Because now I believe in expansion. I believe we endure. Don't you see? Everything lives.||„|

|“||So we'll begin here... with you and me. With a new focus for your ongoing and never-ending education. Our curriculum wil start at survival and end at the edge of an eternal tommorrow. The rules are simple... I teach one class, and it's pass or fail. Welcome to the Future Foundation... Together, there is nothing we can't do.||„|

Reed Richards, better known as Mister Fantastic, is the leader of the Fantastic Four and the head of the Future Foundation. A nearly unparalleled scientist, he invited his colleagues Susan Storm, Johnny Storm, and Ben Grimm to test an experimental spacecraft of his own design as the government threatened to withdraw funding. Although their launch was successful, the ship's shielding was inadequate to protect the team from a sudden burst of cosmic radiation caused by a solar flare as they tried to enter hyperspace. This radiation mutated Richards, allowing him to stretch and elongate his body at will into nearly any shape he could imagine, with his friends suffering mutations of their own. Convinced that he ought to use his newfound powers for the good of humanity, he created the Fantastic Four, one of the world's first superhero teams.
He would later marry Susan and had two children, Franklin Richards and Valeria Richards.

The Ultimate Nullifier constructed by Mister Fantastic is likely not remotely comparable to the scale of the real Nullifier. As such, please refrain from scaling this profile to it.
