Your Marvel Legends collection is about to get a unique upgrade as Hasbro reveals its latest Marvel Legends Multipack!
If you’re a fan of Marvel’s Fantastic Four, then the Franklin Richards and Valeria Richards 6-Inch Action Figures are sure to bring a smile to your face. Let’s take a closer look at the lineage of both of these characters.
The Fantastic 4
The Fantastic Four is a superhero team composed of four unique characters from the Marvel universe. Originally created in 1961 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, this iconic group consists of Reed Richards (“Mr. Fantastic”), Reed’s girlfriend Sue Storm (“The Invisible Girl”), her brother Johnny Storm (“The Human Torch”), and their close friend Ben Grimm (“The Thing”). Each of these super-powered individuals has their own unique abilities that they use together to combat evil forces.
Mister Fantastic has the ability to stretch his body into any shape; The Invisible Woman can turn invisible or create force fields; The Human Torch can turn into fire and plasma and fly at high speeds; and finally, The Thing is an orange rock-like creature with superhuman strength. This powerful combination makes them one of Marvel’s most successful teams as evidenced by their numerous appearances throughout popular culture over the past decades!
Fantastic Four Origin
They first received their powers when Reed Richards decided to make an unauthorized test flight into space on an experimental rocket named the Marvel 1. While in space, the rocket, with all 4 individuals inside was hit with cosmic radiation. In the aftermath of the crashed rocket back on earth, all individuals soon found out they were mutated and given remarkable powers.
Marvel Legends Franklin Richards
The genius son of Reed and Sue, Franklin’s origin began at birth. It turns out that Sue’s body was affected by cosmic radiation to such a degree that it led her to have serious difficulties in giving birth to Franklin. Her mutation had affected her blood in such a way that both she and the baby’s lives were in jeopardy. This forced Reeds and the rest of the team to journey into an anti-matter dimension called the Negative Zone. He would need to find and bring back a special energy created by the Cosmic Control Rod. Of course, it wasn’t an easy task as the one who possessed it was a super villain named Annihilus! An interdimensional insectoid conquerer.
Reed and the team succeeded in obtaining the Rod and successfully drained the Rod of energy and placed it in a special container. They returned and used the energy to get Sue’s blood back under control allowing her to give birth to a healthy baby boy. The boy was named Franklin Benjamin Richards in honor of his late grandfather, Franklin Storm, and the Richards’ best friend, Benjamin J. Grimm.
Franklin manifested his powers at a young age. It turns out, the same cosmic energy that affected his parents also changed his own genetic structure. We soon found out he possessed psionic abilities.
Marvel Legends Valeria Richards
Valeria Richards introduction may even be more fantastic than Franklin’s. Did you see what I did there? Conceived in the Negative Zone, Sue again was having difficulty carrying this baby to term. The baby was emitting bursts of energy that threatened both their lives. Even with the greatest minds at Reed Richards disposal, there was nothing he could do to save the life of baby Valeria, who appeared to be stillborn at birth.
Her brother however used his psionic powers to transport her to an alternate universe. and using some comic book writer’s magic she ended up in Sue’s womb once again. This time with the help of Dr. Doom, Sue was able to deliver a healthy baby girl. Dr. Doom was given the opportunity to name her. He chose the name, Valeria. After his childhood sweetheart.
