It's crazy that Marvel has continued to get away with calling a character "the thing"

    The Thing was better
    This was in the era where The Shadow and The Spirit were popular characters
    Why isn’t Sue called Mrs.Fantastic?

    How would you describe him to someone if you came across him? The Thing is perfect.

    I have faith in Feige but F4 is the one part of the franchise the MCU doesn't need to touch.

    How you gon make a full length feature movie about characters called Thing and Mr Fantastic and expect folks to take it seriously?

    It's gonna come across like that DC Shazam silliness. Just let it go

    We don't need them.

    Now y'all hatin on the Thing. That's on of the most genius concepts for a name. "Thing" says it all. Invisible Girl/Woman is the worst name though. It's too much to say. Mr. Fantastic is dope too. Human Torch is passible.

    If anything, how are they going to get around "Flame on!"

    To be fair.....he's very rarely called The Thing:hubie:
    He's been referred to as Ben Grimm way more than The Thing
    ...just like Reed Richards is never called Mr. Fantastic....just like nobody ever calls Sue Storm....The Invisible Woman

    The FF are the only superhero Team where their codenames are secondary to their real ones

    Because all their codenames suck and didnt stand the test of time
