"Make no mistake--scientific genius Reed Richards thinks big. And when he launches the world's first privately funded rocket into space, he and his closest friends are in for the ride of their lives. Victims of a freak accident, Reed Richards, Susan Storm, Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm will find themselves forever changed--and inextricably linked. They will become a team--a family--of adventurers. But it's their courage in cataclysmic battles with the Mole Man, the Sub-Mariner and more that will make them heroes!"--P.  of cover.
