The Fantastic Four is an unreleased 1994 independent superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. It features the origin of the Fantastic Four and the team's first battle with the evil Doctor Doom. Executive-produced by low-budget specialist Roger Corman and Bernd Eichinger.
Reed Richards and Victor Von Doom are college friends who use the opportunity of a passing comet to try an experiment; however, the experiment goes wrong, leaving Victor believed dead. Susan and Johnny Storm are two children living with their mother, who has a boarding house where Reed lives. Ben Grimm is a family friend and a college buddy of Reed's.
Ten years later, Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben go up into an experimental spacecraft of Reed's as the same comet passes by Earth. They are hit by cosmic rays from it, due to a necessary diamond being exchanged for an imitation by the Jeweler.
Upon crash-landing on Earth, the four discover that the cosmic rays gave them special powers: Reed's bodily structure has become elastic, Sue can become invisible, Johnny can generate fire on demand and Ben has transformed into a creature with stone-like skin: the Thing. They are later captured by Victor's men, who pose as Marines, and meet villainous monarch Dr. Doom. After escaping from Doom's men, the four regroup at the Baxter Building, trying to decide what to do now that they have gained superpowers. An angry Ben leaves the group to go out on his own, feeling he has become a freak of nature. He is found by homeless men and joins them in the lair of the Jeweler.
The Jeweler has his henchmen kidnap blind artist Alicia Masters, whom he plans to force into being his bride and intends to use the stolen diamond as his wedding gift to her. Doom has his own plans for the diamond and sends his henchmen to the Jeweler's lair to make a deal with him, to no avail. Doom, displeased, seizes the diamond himself as a gun battle breaks out between The Jeweler's and Doom's men. Ben enters the fray, only for Doom to take Alicia as his hostage. Ben threatens to 'clobber' Doom, only for Alicia to beg his not to risk it and confesses her love for him. Her confession reverts Ben to human form, causing him to flee out onto the city streets. Frustrated at his helplessness, he reverts to the Thing.
Ben returns to his friends; by now, Reed has learned that Doom is actually Victor. Doom contacts them and threatens to use the diamond to power a laser cannon that will destroy New York City, unless they surrender to him. Realizing they are the only ones who can stop Doom, they don costumes and travel to Doom's castle. There, the Fantastic Four battle a series of Doom's military. Doom fires his laser as Reed has a final battle with him, which ends with Doom being knocked off a balcony wall. He manages to grab hold of the wall and Reed attempts to rescue him, only for Doom's gauntlet to come loose and him falling into the fog below. His gauntlet, still on the balcony, starts to move on its own. Johnny becomes the Human Torch and flies off to stand between the laser's shot and the city, pushing the beam into outer space. Ben frees Alicia and finally introduces himself to her. She feels the rocky surface of his face but is not fazed by his altered appearance. Thereafter, the Four dedicate themselves to fighting evil, and Reed and Sue marry.
