Fantastic Four Update

The Fantastic Four in Marvel Comics - Sue Storm married Reed Richards, did they have a baby? What “powers” did baby develop? Did the Human Torch marry anyone, and did they have offspring?

I have so many questions about Marvel Comics characters from the 60’s and 70’s, I was one of the few girls who collected them like mad. I loved the F.F. and the X-Men and Thor and the Avengers…Then puberty must have kicked in and I stopped following them…This is a true statement: I would be a millionaire today if my DAMN MOTHER hadn’t literally thrown out my collection , I have a mere sad handful left, mostly the earlier X-Men with Magneto and Submariner and the Inhumans.

Last I checked (about 20 years ago) Sue and Reed had a son named Franklin who had some pretty undefined psychic powers.

Ugh. Depends which “time line” you are talking about.

After checking a bunch of FAQs, this is the best I could come up with:

Franklin Richards was plucked out of this time stream at some point, grew to a teenager became known as “Psi-Lord” and had some kind of an affair with Rachel Summers, the original Phoenix.

Don’t even ask where Rachel Summers came from.

Yeah, I know. Comic books are my personal geek-button.

Back off, man. I’m a scientist.

Well, I haven’t followed in about two years, but last I remember, there was a huge guy that was tearing up the Marvel Multiverse (can’t remember his name) he was Magneto and Prof. X combined, and when he was finally defeated, by Franklin Richards, still as a kid, who apparently has the strongest psychic powers in the multiverse, some of the super heroes had disappeared. The last scene of the comic was Franklin walking away with a large, shiny, bowling ball looking thing. The missing heroes turned up in their own story lines in a second world, one that had never seen a super hero. I believe this world turned out to be Franklin’s ball, it was found how to get into the ball, and the heroes were freed. Thanks you, and good night.
