They have no secret identities to hide, and they are a family more than a team. Reed Richards is a scientist who uses his brains - not his elastic fist, to win a battle. Johnny Storm is a teenager who is a hero in his own right, and not someone's sidekick. Sue Richards is not just Richard's wife but an equal member of the team. And Ben Grimm, the Thing, is a reluctant hero whose gruff demeanor masks the self-pity he feels inside, knowing his great strength and fame come at a great price. It's a day just like any other Ben Grimm goes to the Baxter Building to see what new machine Reed Richards has created. There is an explosion in the lab, and suddenly Ben is in an alternate universe were the FF's archvillian Doctor Doom is the leader of the team. Will Ben discover who is behind the plot in time to stop them?
