  • Ever since I was three, I wanted to play quarterback
  • for the New York Giants... like my personal hero,
  • Eli Manning.
  • Annual salary is between 10 and 20 million dollars a year.
  • Thank you.
  • Next up... Reed.
  • Mr. Richards?
  • Earth to Richards.
  • Beam me up, Scotty.
  • Okay, come on, guys.
  • Oh, I'm sorry.
  • When I grow up... I want to be the first person in human history to teleport himself.
  • I'm sorry, what?
  • It's already possible to transport quantum information from one location to another.
  • Right now, there are supercomputers that can transport quantum information through space.
  • So why not a machine that can send people through space?
  • Well, even if you could build the thing, which you can't...
  • I've already built it.
  • Well, I'm building it.
  • In my garage.
  • Is it next to your flying car?
  • I'm not working on that anymore.
  • Just this now.
  • I call it a "Biomatter Shuttle."
  • "Biomatter..."?
  • Technically, I'm shuttling matter from one place to another.
  • Well, first matter.
  • But once I test on biological materials, I can...
  • All right, look...
  • Thank you, Mr. Richards.
  • This is all very interesting but the assignment was to pick a real career in the real world.
  • Redo the report, and I'll let you try again tomorrow.
  • Ben?
  • Anyway, I tell him...
  • "Bro, I ain't looking at your girl.
  • "Girl's looking at me.
  • "What you want me to do about it?"
  • Know what I'm saying?
  • Hey, where you going?
  • I got homework.
  • What?
  • Look at that fridge pile.
  • Idiot.
  • What'd you say?
  • Hey! Clobbering time.
  • What'd you think?
  • Think you can talk to me like that, huh?
  • You think you can talk to me like that, punk?
  • What the hell is the matter with you?
  • Shh! Huh? Huh?
  • Ma!
  • I didn't do nothing!
  • Huh? Huh?
  • Ma, I swear to God!
  • You didn't do nothing?
  • Go check on that fuss.
  • You didn't do nothing?
  • I watched you!
  • What's the matter with you?
  • How many times do I have to tell you, you don't hit a kid!
  • Hey!
  • Hello?
  • Who's in there?
  • Please don't kill me.
  • Take that off.
  • I know you. From school.
  • I'm just looking for a power converter.
  • I'm building something.
  • Ben!
  • What's going on out there?
  • Hold on!
  • That teleporting thing?
  • I can show it to you.
  • I just need the converter.
  • All right.
  • Come on, throw him the ball!
  • Throw the ball, throw the ball!
  • Come on, he's open!
  • Throw the ball!
  • That's what
  • I'm talking about. Yeah!
  • Is that it?
  • Yeah.
  • Help.
  • Here you go.
  • Your family owns a junkyard?
  • Mmm-hmm.
  • That place is awesome.
  • Here.
  • You're stripping the head.
  • So, uh, who else lives here?
  • Just my mom and step-dad.
  • They don't care about all this?
  • They don't understand it.
  • You might want to
  • cover your ears.
  • Stand back a little.
  • What the hell?
  • Damn it.
  • It's all right.
  • All right, come on.
  • Don't blow up.
  • Don't blow up.
  • Come on, man! Guy's open!
  • Whoa!
  • Reed! What did you do?
  • Now!
  • Reed!
  • Did it work?
  • Hey, Reed!
  • Where'd the rocks come from?
  • From the same place
  • the car went to.
  • Where is that?
  • I don't know yet.
  • Reed?
  • What?
  • You're insane.
  • Thanks.
  • Mr. Richards.
  • Shall I alert
  • the fire department?
  • What is this?
  • Uh, this is a
  • Cymatic Matter Shuttle.
  • Me and my associate Ben
  • have been working on it
  • every day since 5th grade
  • when we launched the beta
  • version in my garage.
  • And today is our first
  • public demonstration.
  • What does it do?
  • It modulates
  • the frequency of matter
  • from one location
  • to another and back again.
  • It's a teleporter.
  • A teleporter.
  • Model car, please?
  • The model...
  • The model car, please, Ben.
  • I don't have the model car.
  • Why don't you have
  • the model car?
  • I brought everything else.
  • I specifically...
  • But... Mr. Richards?
  • Okay, I will use
  • this model plane.
  • Hey, I just need to
  • use this for one second.
  • But I'll give it back,
  • I promise. Thanks.
  • Here we go.
  • Ben? Please?
  • You may want to cover your ears.
  • Great. Now, Ben,
  • bring it on back.
  • Yeah.
  • Oh, keep 'em covered.
  • Oh, come on.
  • No. Come on, come on.
  • Don't do this.
  • Oh, okay.
  • Now if I can have
  • your attention, please.
  • What you're looking at is sand,
  • presumably from
  • the Gansu Desert in China.
  • Or perhaps even from the Sahara.
  • You're disqualified.
  • We're not entirely sure
  • where it's from...
  • Mr. Richards,
  • you're disqualified.
  • Wait, what?
  • This is a science fair,
  • not a magic competition.
  • I don't see
  • any real science here.
  • And you're paying
  • for the backboard.
  • Did you put it on 6 or 8?
  • Everything was the same.
  • I know,
  • but you're smashing the buttons.
  • It's delicate.
  • You can't smash it.
  • Hey, kid, I'm really
  • sorry about your plane.
  • You're a dick.
  • You cranked it up too high.
  • I didn't crank it up too high.
  • It was on the same
  • setting as last time.
  • I know, but it's very precise.
  • Excuse me, guys?
  • Just pack it up.
  • Yeah?
  • Did you really build this
  • in your garage?
  • Mmm-hmm.
  • Now, this is elegant.
  • What are these?
  • Uh, Sonic projectors,
  • using cymatics
  • to modulate the field.
  • That's why we can't
  • bring the matter back
  • from the other dimension.
  • Uh... What?
  • We've gone so far as to send
  • matter to another dimension
  • but we haven't been able
  • to maintain a field
  • long enough
  • to bring that matter back.
  • You just did.
  • Oh, you're serious.
  • I think you've cracked
  • inter-dimensional travel.
  • I mean, we're not sending
  • anything to another dimension.
  • We sent something, we think,
  • to another part of the planet
  • but I don't know about
  • another dimension.
  • We found the same thing you did.
  • We've had it
  • analyzed repeatedly,
  • but no one's ever
  • seen anything like it.
  • Oh, wow.
  • I'm sorry. We're from
  • the Baxter Foundation.
  • This is my daughter, Sue.
  • Hi.
  • Hi.
  • We'd like to
  • give you a full scholarship.
  • Uh, where did you say
  • you were from again?
  • Hey. You could fit the whole
  • neighborhood in there.
  • What's your name?
  • Uh, Reed.
  • Richards.
  • Yes, of course.
  • We've been expecting you.
  • They actually
  • wear lab coats here.
  • This is you, sir.
  • Here.
  • What?
  • What is this?
  • It's a going-away present.
  • I'm not going away.
  • I'm, like, a 40-minute
  • train ride from Oyster Bay.
  • Reed, look at this place.
  • You belong here.
  • I've been here two minutes
  • and I already know that.
  • I'm just going to school here.
  • It's where I'm gonna be working.
  • It looks like
  • you're home, buddy.
  • Hey.
  • This place is pretty incredible.
  • They have molecular chem
  • books from the 1950s.
  • Oh, hey. Sorry,
  • did you say something?
  • Yeah, I was just asking,
  • what are you listening to?
  • Portishead.
  • Never heard of him.
  • "Them."
  • I'll have to check them out.
  • I love this book.
  • It's about this guy,
  • Captain Nemo.
  • He invents a submarine
  • that goes deeper
  • than anything in history.
  • Yeah, I know. I've read it.
  • So, you like music?
  • Is that kind of like your thing?
  • Pattern recognition.
  • Pattern recognition?
  • Music is just a series
  • of altered patterns.
  • The musician creates the pattern
  • and makes us
  • anticipate a resolution...
  • ...then holds back.
  • Makes you wait for it.
  • There's patterns in
  • everything and everyone.
  • Hmm.
  • What's mine?
  • You wanna be famous.
  • Your parents, teachers
  • all told you one thing,
  • one way to be,
  • and you ignored them.
  • And now I'm here.
  • So you are.
  • Am I that predictable?
  • Everybody is.
  • Well, you're wrong.
  • I don't wanna be famous.
  • I just want my work
  • to make a difference.
  • Well, here you are,
  • Captain Nemo.
  • Go for it.
  • Bye.
  • Let me guess.
  • Some kid from the Internet.
  • Science fair.
  • Franklin,
  • this board has invested
  • a great deal
  • in your little orphanage.
  • We need real world applications.
  • This has real world
  • applications.
  • I truly believe
  • that there is an entire...
  • "An entirely new universe,
  • "just beyond
  • our ability to see."
  • Yes, I've read your paper.
  • Once we get there...
  • If we get there.
  • ...we'll be able to
  • discover new resources.
  • Energy sources which
  • will revitalize our own.
  • This is our chance to learn more
  • about our planet
  • and maybe even save it.
  • And I'm sure you all would
  • agree that even if...
  • Wait. What is this?
  • Victor Von Doom is on here.
  • He started this project
  • and devoted
  • a decade of his life to it.
  • He deserves to be in jail.
  • He deserves another chance.
  • He set fire to your
  • data servers before he left.
  • I'm going to personally
  • supervise him.
  • I need his talent.
  • I believe he and Reed
  • can finally get us there.
  • We want to support you,
  • Franklin,
  • but you put a lot
  • of faith in these kids.
  • I put all my faith in them.
  • So someone stole my design.
  • No one stole anything, Victor.
  • Someone else
  • figured out your idea...
  • and made it work.
  • That's what happens when
  • you drop out of the world.
  • Other people finish
  • what you started.
  • Well, if you came
  • to ask for help,
  • be better you didn't
  • insult both of us...
  • and turn back around.
  • Don't you wanna even
  • look at the designs?
  • I told you I'm done working
  • for you and your employers.
  • They're not my employers.
  • You can't do a thing
  • without their permission, yes?
  • Wake up. You're an employee.
  • They'll stay out of my way
  • this time. Trust me.
  • It's not you I don't trust.
  • Yeah.
  • Well...
  • I hate to interfere with
  • all of your important work.
  • Guess we'll just have
  • to make history without you.
  • Is Sue gonna be there?
  • I trust her.
  • Yes, Victor, she'll be there.
  • Clean yourself up, son.
  • Holy shit.
  • Amazing.
  • Oh, thanks.
  • Amazing you didn't black out
  • the entire Western Hemisphere.
  • Hmm?
  • You basically ripped a hole
  • in the fabric of space-time
  • with unspec'd components
  • and no supervision.
  • Yeah, that was, uh, an accident.
  • And if, by accident,
  • you upped the power...
  • you would have created
  • a runaway reaction
  • that opened a black hole...
  • and swallowed the entire planet.
  • Well, I'm glad
  • that didn't happen.
  • Are you helping on this?
  • I'm making
  • the environment suits.
  • Based on the soil samples
  • from our experiments...
  • anyone who goes
  • to the other dimension
  • is gonna need to be protected.
  • Who's that?
  • Victor.
  • Who's Victor?
  • He started this whole project.
  • Oh. Does he go here, too?
  • It's complicated.
  • Rudimentary.
  • Elementary.
  • This is basically
  • a child's drawing.
  • You know what
  • Albert Einstein said.
  • "If you can't explain it simply,
  • "you don't understand it
  • well enough."
  • Ten years searching
  • for something
  • that is basically runner-up
  • for a baking soda volcano.
  • We were actually disqualified.
  • The potato clock got second.
  • Reed Richards, Victor Von Doom.
  • Victor started
  • the Quantum Gate project
  • when he was younger than you.
  • Wow. It's great
  • to meet you.
  • Hi, Susan.
  • Hey, Victor.
  • Do you prefer "Susan"?
  • No.
  • It's been a while.
  • Didn't expect to
  • see you back here.
  • Yeah, well, I couldn't resist.
  • When I heard about the design,
  • I needed to see it
  • with my own eyes.
  • I gotta say,
  • it's pretty impressive...
  • Thank you.
  • ...that you nearly destroyed
  • our entire planet
  • with speaker cable
  • and aluminum foil.
  • Yeah, that was an accident.
  • He did get it to work.
  • What is this?
  • This is where your little,
  • uh, accident leads to.
  • We put a camera on
  • a drone we sent over there.
  • The drone didn't come back,
  • but those images did.
  • Wow. It's beautiful.
  • Yes, it is.
  • New energy, resources.
  • It's a whole new world.
  • Which can help save this one.
  • Not that it deserves
  • to be saved.
  • I mean, think about it.
  • The people running the Earth
  • are the same ones
  • running it into the ground.
  • So, maybe it deserves
  • what it's got coming to it.
  • Dr. Doom, over here.
  • The failures of my generation
  • are the opportunities for yours.
  • There are no greater minds
  • than the ones in this room.
  • Is he gonna give a speech?
  • He's gonna give a speech.
  • But you're gonna have to
  • all come together.
  • Each of you working together
  • with a level of commitment
  • and collaboration...
  • putting aside petty squabbles...
  • if you want to fix
  • what my generation broke.
  • If you can do that,
  • work together...
  • then you can change
  • the course of history.
  • That's a pretty good speech.
  • I'm in.
  • Me, too.
  • I'm here, right?
  • First, design.
  • We figure out what went wrong
  • and correct it.
  • Then we build, then we send
  • organic matter over there.
  • But, more importantly,
  • we bring it back.
  • And then...
  • most importantly, they send us.
  • "Us"?
  • Us, us?
  • We're going over there?
  • Not unless you get to work.
  • So, get to work.
  • Johnny Storm.
  • So that's the
  • piece of shit Toyota
  • you been talking about.
  • Why, yes, it is.
  • Now you promise me
  • we'll still be cool
  • after I dust your ass.
  • No. Come on.
  • Rookie!
  • Bye-bye.
  • Oh, shit.
  • I cannot believe you're out here
  • doing this nonsense again.
  • I told you.
  • What?
  • I told you I was doing 45
  • when I spun out.
  • Yeah.
  • The ground was wet
  • and I hydroplaned.
  • Funny, I don't seem to
  • remember any rain today.
  • You were probably
  • too busy to notice.
  • Johnny, I thought you were
  • turning things around.
  • What is this?
  • What are you talking about?
  • This! This!
  • Is this the way you want
  • the rest of your life to be?
  • You keep acting out.
  • You have the potential and
  • the IQ to do so much more.
  • Oh, you mean like Sue?
  • I know you think you know
  • what's best for you,
  • but trust me, son, you do not.
  • Can you stop that?
  • What? Stop what?
  • Stop talking to me
  • like I'm one of your students.
  • Well, you're not
  • getting the car back.
  • Excuse me?
  • You're not getting the car back.
  • I built that thing from scratch
  • with my own two hands.
  • With my money.
  • My money, my car.
  • You want it back,
  • you're gonna have to earn it.
  • You're gonna have to
  • come work for me.
  • I'm not wearing a lab coat.
  • Appreciate your work, miss.
  • Oh, you gotta
  • untuck that shirt, man.
  • Is that Adolf? Long time.
  • Still not German.
  • And we don't need any more help.
  • Yes, you do.
  • With what,
  • his boundless enthusiasm?
  • Oh, why, thank you, Victor.
  • He can build anything.
  • With a broken arm?
  • What exactly happened?
  • What?
  • Were you racing again?
  • I don't know what
  • you're talking about.
  • I could use some help, actually.
  • Oh, this guy
  • doesn't take orders well.
  • Yeah, especially from
  • people who say shit like,
  • "I don't take orders well."
  • What you need, buddy?
  • Oh, that's brilliant.
  • Hey.
  • What's up? Johnny.
  • Reed. Nice to meet you.
  • Have you welded before?
  • Of course.
  • Keeps overheating.
  • Hey.
  • What's up?
  • I got to say,
  • it's fun having you here.
  • Mmm-hmm.
  • You kind of look like
  • you're in your element.
  • Look, don't get used to this.
  • I'm just here
  • to get my car back.
  • Right.
  • It's good seeing you too.
  • Sorry.
  • Oh, whoa!
  • Oh, my God.
  • Why would you do that?
  • Sorry.
  • I freaked out.
  • Oh, my gosh. Sorry.
  • You were sort of sleeping.
  • Was I? Is that what that was?
  • It's okay if you need to
  • take a nap or something.
  • I'm good, thanks.
  • Uh, so, that must have been cool
  • with Dr. Storm as your dad.
  • Yeah.
  • Did he adopt you?
  • Mmm-hmm.
  • Yeah, I know what that's like.
  • You were adopted?
  • No, I just wish that I was.
  • Why?
  • I don't know. We don't
  • really understand each other.
  • Mmm.
  • Where were you born?
  • Kosovo.
  • You don't have an accent.
  • I don't?
  • Hey, Reed. Can I have a word?
  • Okay, yeah.
  • Hey.
  • You're being unprofessional.
  • You're supposed to be
  • down here, working.
  • Yeah, I am. That's
  • what we've been doing.
  • That's not what it looks like.
  • We're finished.
  • What?
  • Yeah, we finished it.
  • Do you want to see?
  • Yeah.
  • Hey, Sue.
  • Can you show him?
  • I'm really tired.
  • I'm gonna go take a nap.
  • Can you tell Dr. Storm
  • for me? We did it, Victor.
  • - Harvey.
  • - Franklin.
  • Big day.
  • Didn't think we'd make
  • it here, but well done.
  • I told you
  • these kids could do it.
  • Harvey's here.
  • Organic test commencing.
  • Clear for launch.
  • Goggles up.
  • Ten...
  • nine...
  • eight...
  • seven...
  • six...
  • five...
  • four...
  • three...
  • two...
  • one.
  • Standing by
  • for video acquisition.
  • Status unknown. Stand by.
  • Trying an alternate frequency.
  • We've got signal.
  • Look at the plates.
  • It's almost primordial.
  • Unformed, like Earth
  • over a billion years ago.
  • That place could explain
  • the origin of our species.
  • The evolution of our planet.
  • Answers to questions
  • we don't even know to ask yet.
  • BPS, body temp, ventilation
  • rates are all elevated.
  • Let's bring him back.
  • Goggles up.
  • In five...
  • four...
  • three...
  • two...
  • one.
  • How is he?
  • The vitals are good.
  • They're really good.
  • He made it.
  • It's safe.
  • All right!
  • Looks like we're next.
  • Gentlemen. Everyone.
  • You all deserve
  • an enormous pat on the back.
  • I think it's time
  • to start coordinating
  • with our friends at NASA.
  • What?
  • It works. We have to start
  • thinking about sending men.
  • Yeah.
  • Us.
  • Look, I won't deny that
  • what you've created here
  • is incredible.
  • But this isn't the school
  • science fair anymore.
  • We have to bring in help now.
  • Why just NASA?
  • Why not the Army or the CIA?
  • We could send
  • our political prisoners there.
  • Waterboarding
  • in the fourth dimension
  • could prove very effective.
  • Why don't we discuss the
  • details of this someplace else?
  • In the meantime...
  • we appreciate your service.
  • Oh. Hey, thank you.
  • I won't let this go,
  • I promise you.
  • Just give him a second
  • to figure this out.
  • Look, I don't know about you
  • guys, but I could use some...
  • Want a drink?
  • Ethanol kills brain cells.
  • You are a lightweight!
  • Looks like
  • we need another refill.
  • Here you go, Johnny.
  • Yep.
  • Yep.
  • Hey, Vic.
  • You guys know who built
  • the Apollo spacecraft,
  • went to the moon?
  • Yeah. Your mama.
  • So, the answer's no.
  • But you know who
  • Neil Armstrong is, right?
  • Yeah, of course.
  • Of course.
  • - Buzz Aldrin?
  • - Yeah.
  • First men to walk on the moon.
  • Famous faces hired
  • to conquer dreams
  • that weren't even theirs.
  • Dreams that someone else,
  • some other scientist...
  • who probably died
  • penniless and alone...
  • and sat in a bar, telling people
  • he sent men to the moon.
  • That's gonna be me.
  • That's gonna be me.
  • Think it's all of us.
  • Unless we go first.
  • Why don't we go first?
  • God, this thing works, okay?
  • We can go up there,
  • take five minutes.
  • We can take a flag
  • and plant it down,
  • get our footprints down there.
  • We're gonna be the first
  • people over there. Okay?
  • Screw those guys!
  • My dad might
  • actually kill me this time.
  • Johnny, by the time
  • your dad finds out,
  • we'll already be back.
  • Think about it.
  • Just the three of us?
  • Hello?
  • I'm not going without you.
  • What time is it?
  • Look, we started
  • this thing together,
  • we're going together.
  • I'm not taking no
  • for an answer, okay?
  • Forget Neil Armstrong!
  • Come on.
  • Neil Armstrong?
  • You drunk?
  • Yeah, I am a little drunk.
  • It doesn't matter!
  • Look, the machine works.
  • The machine works, Ben,
  • and I need you to come with me.
  • Now?
  • Yeah. Look, Ben...
  • I need you to come
  • because we're going tonight.
  • I told the guys that
  • I'm not going without you.
  • Okay? Who's gonna
  • have my back?
  • All right, fine.
  • Just give me
  • a second, all right?
  • Okay.
  • Please?
  • All right, buddy.
  • Thank you, thank you.
  • He's with me.
  • What's up, man?
  • What's up, buddy?
  • How you doing?
  • It's good to see you.
  • Thanks, Panno.
  • No problem, Mr. Richards.
  • Why are we doing this tonight?
  • Huh?
  • Why are we doing this tonight?
  • You trust me, right?
  • Ta-da!
  • It's just like ours,
  • but expensive.
  • Guys, this is Ben.
  • How you doing?
  • What's up?
  • Are you his lucky charm?
  • I'm sorry, this is Borat.
  • Borat's a dick.
  • Are you guys sure you're in
  • the best shape to be doing this?
  • Oh, yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • We're good.
  • Let's do this.
  • So, I guess I should
  • come up with
  • something better than
  • "One small step for man..."?
  • Strap in and get comfy, kids.
  • We're about to make history.
  • Yeah, or die. Either/Or.
  • Wow, that's great,
  • Ben. Thanks.
  • All right, gentlemen.
  • Hands and feet must remain
  • inside the ride at all times.
  • Oh, shit.
  • Dad, you need
  • to come to the lab.
  • Remote launch initiated.
  • Ten...
  • Don't blow up.
  • Please, don't blow up.
  • Oh, yeah, that's
  • what I wanna hear
  • before going
  • into another dimension.
  • Yeah, don't worry.
  • He does that.
  • ...five...
  • four...
  • three...
  • two...
  • one.
  • Initiate launch.
  • What happened? Did we abort?
  • Uh...
  • I don't think
  • that we went anywhere.
  • God damn it.
  • Johnny?
  • Guys, can you hear me?
  • Wow.
  • I made it.
  • Ben, look at this place.
  • It's amazing.
  • We did it.
  • I think we did.
  • Here, give me a hand.
  • Give me a hand.
  • Oh, yeah. This one is
  • definitely going on Instagram.
  • Let's do this. Ready?
  • After three.
  • One, two, three!
  • Whoa,
  • look at that. Whoa!
  • Hey, Victor,
  • I think you should see this.
  • The energy seems to be
  • converging over there.
  • Come on.
  • Let's check it out.
  • All right. Let's do it quickly
  • so we can get out of here.
  • Nope. Uh-uh.
  • I'm good.
  • Reed, what's he doing?
  • We need to climb down there
  • so we can get a better look.
  • Oh, you guys go on without me.
  • Stay here.
  • We need an anchor.
  • Yeah, yeah.
  • I'll be a great anchor.
  • Okay.
  • Easy does it.
  • Just a little further.
  • Right behind you.
  • Okay.
  • It's responding
  • to physical stimulus.
  • Almost like a nerve impulse.
  • I can feel it.
  • The energy, it's alive.
  • It's incredible.
  • There's no expenditure.
  • Reed.
  • What?
  • I think we should go back.
  • This is important, Ben.
  • Come take a look.
  • Go, go, go! Oh, shit!
  • Come on!
  • Come on,
  • come on! Hurry up!
  • Come on, Reed!
  • Come on!
  • Victor!
  • Reed!
  • Hold on!
  • Reed! Pull me up!
  • Victor!
  • Grab my hand!
  • Reed, pull me up!
  • Come on! Come on!
  • Victor, hold on!
  • Reed!
  • I can't hold him!
  • Don't let go!
  • Help me!
  • Victor!
  • Victor! No!
  • Reed, let's go! Come on!
  • Victor!
  • Come on!
  • We can't leave him!
  • Reed, we gotta go now!
  • Come on!
  • Come on, come on!
  • Come on!
  • Move, let's move!
  • Move your ass, Reed!
  • Move it! Keep moving!
  • Oh, my God.
  • Let's go, let's go, let's go!
  • Reed, let's go!
  • Okay.
  • Reed, come on!
  • The re-entry's not working!
  • I don't know what to do!
  • Get us out of here!
  • Reed!
  • Do something! We gotta go!
  • Guys, can you hear me?
  • Sue! Can you hear me?
  • Johnny!
  • Do you have any idea
  • how much trouble you're in?
  • Yes, yes, I do!
  • Sue, I need you to manually
  • override the re-entry, okay?
  • Okay, I got it.
  • Manually override
  • the re-entry!
  • I'm trying!
  • Sue, just do it!
  • Reed! The door!
  • I can't close the door!
  • Ben!
  • The door won't close!
  • Ben!
  • Ben!
  • Johnny!
  • Reed!
  • Ben.
  • Oh, God!
  • Ben!
  • Help me!
  • I'm coming!
  • Reed, help me!
  • Can't move!
  • Ben!
  • Where are you?
  • Reed?
  • Help me.
  • Ben.
  • Reed.
  • Ben!
  • Reed, help me. I can't move!
  • I'll get you out of there.
  • Oh, my God. What the...? What?
  • Can we get a BP reading?
  • BP 128 over 72.
  • Bone density?
  • Bone density rates are normal.
  • Reed, can you move your hand?
  • Where's Ben?
  • Keep trying, Reed.
  • Hey, do you guys know
  • where my friends are?
  • Can you lift your index finger?
  • I...
  • I'm trying.
  • Where's Ben?
  • Did you see him?
  • He was covered in the rocks.
  • Why won't you answer me?
  • Where are my friends?
  • Help me!
  • Increase sedative. 50 cc's.
  • What have you guys done to me?
  • So, just for the record...
  • this program was under your supervision,
  • was it not?
  • I already told you it was,
  • but I wasn't there
  • when it happened.
  • All I want to know is,
  • where are my children?
  • I need to know if they're alive.
  • She's unconscious.
  • Somehow, she's shifting in and
  • out of the visible spectrum.
  • We don't know how.
  • Her vitals are stable.
  • She doesn't seem
  • to be able to control it.
  • Looks like
  • we have some activity.
  • Son. Oh, my God.
  • Can anyone hear me?
  • Please, help me!
  • Somebody, please!
  • Is anybody there?
  • Ben?
  • Somebody answer me!
  • Somebody, please!
  • Help me!
  • Can anyone hear me?
  • Please, help me!
  • Hello?
  • Somebody answer me!
  • Anybody?
  • Ben?
  • Ben!
  • Reed?
  • Oh, my God.
  • Ben?
  • Reed, what happened to me?
  • I don't know.
  • But I'm gonna figure this out.
  • Ben!
  • Please help me, Reed!
  • Subject One
  • has escaped containment.
  • Oh, shit! Shit!
  • Ben, I'm coming back for you,
  • I promise!
  • No, no, no! Reed, help me!
  • Please don't leave me!
  • I'm sorry.
  • Reed, do something, please!
  • Where is he? Where is Reed?
  • I don't know.
  • He's scared, Harvey.
  • They're all just scared kids.
  • We don't know
  • what they are right now.
  • All we know is that they
  • are dangerous and powerful.
  • Which makes them
  • extremely valuable
  • to the guys who run this place.
  • If you think for a minute
  • that I'm going to allow you
  • to turn these kids
  • into some kind of...
  • You don't have a choice,
  • Franklin. And neither do I.
  • Either we play ball
  • with the government
  • or who knows
  • what happens to those kids.
  • Now...
  • Here's how this is gonna go.
  • So you're Ben Grimm.
  • Where's Reed?
  • I can't begin to imagine
  • what you are going through.
  • He said he'll fix it.
  • Where is Reed?
  • Reed's gone.
  • Your friend isn't coming back.
  • Look, I know you're scared.
  • You should be.
  • But we can help you.
  • You wanna find a cure?
  • We have resources here,
  • the best in the world.
  • We're analyzing
  • what happened to you.
  • Whatever it is, we can find
  • a way to reverse it.
  • We can help you, Ben.
  • But you need to help us, too.
  • What do you want me to do?
  • His combat
  • effectiveness this past year
  • has been unprecedented.
  • In terms of potential,
  • you already know what he's
  • accomplished in the field.
  • He's been active
  • in covert operations
  • with a 100% success rate.
  • Protecting our men
  • and women in battle
  • and saving countless lives.
  • Ladies and gentlemen,
  • this is only the beginning.
  • The other survivors
  • of the "Baxter Incident"
  • all exhibited
  • unique physical conditions.
  • We developed suits
  • which allow them
  • to contain and control
  • these conditions.
  • This subject's suit
  • controls her spectral flares
  • and refractive visibility.
  • With intense concentration
  • she has also
  • developed the ability
  • to render
  • other objects invisible.
  • And, to neuropathically
  • produce force fields.
  • All these abilities
  • come from one place.
  • Another dimension
  • that our scientists
  • have taken to calling
  • "Planet Zero."
  • A planet infused
  • with the same energy
  • that transformed these survivors
  • and potentially could transform
  • our military capabilities.
  • We have the direct link.
  • With your continued support,
  • once the Quantum Gate 2
  • project is finished,
  • we'll have control
  • over more than that world.
  • We'll have control over ours.
  • Everyone, have a look.
  • What the hell is that?
  • Subject Number Two.
  • 2,000 meters in six seconds.
  • New record.
  • Just need to work on my takeoff.
  • I can make it in five.
  • All target drones neutralized.
  • Keep holding your breath, Susan.
  • As long as you can.
  • Directional stability
  • is 33 over 10.
  • Rise is steady.
  • Pitch is eight degrees.
  • Your balance is getting better.
  • Hey.
  • They're gonna send me
  • on a project.
  • Like Ben?
  • We should use these powers
  • to do something.
  • They're not powers.
  • They're aggressively abnormal physical
  • conditions that we're gonna fix.
  • Can you turn that off?
  • And what if they can't?
  • What if it takes
  • more time to get it right?
  • We could be talking years.
  • I am not going to be a tool.
  • Johnny...
  • Stan, you ready?
  • Yes, we are.
  • Flame on.
  • Okay, Johnny.
  • Thank you, Sue.
  • Don't forget...
  • We're here to get
  • our lives back.
  • The subjects have agreed
  • to cooperate with us
  • until we find
  • the source of their powers
  • and, potentially, a cure.
  • Why don't we go see the big guy?
  • Hi, Ben.
  • I got some friends of mine here,
  • from
  • Washington D.C., visiting.
  • Got a second to say hello?
  • It's an honor
  • to meet you, Mr. Grimm.
  • We appreciate
  • all you're doing for us.
  • That was the deal. Right?
  • And there she is,
  • the Quantum Gate herself.
  • The, uh, star of the show.
  • Franklin.
  • I'd like for you all
  • to meet Franklin Storm...
  • who is our supervisor
  • here on the floor.
  • How do you do, sir?
  • Good morning.
  • Good morning.
  • How long until it's ready?
  • Well, we've had a few issues,
  • but we're getting closer.
  • Closer every day.
  • All right, Dr. Allen.
  • We'll give you what you need.
  • In the meantime,
  • we'd like to put
  • more of your subjects
  • in the field.
  • Subject Two is ready to go.
  • Get him ready for combat.
  • Susan!
  • Can I have a word with you?
  • They're sending
  • Johnny into the field.
  • You mean he's sending himself
  • into the field.
  • The only way to stop him
  • is to cure him.
  • And that means
  • finishing the Gate.
  • I can't finish it without Reed.
  • Reed's not coming back.
  • He abandoned us, left us here.
  • He was afraid. He didn't
  • know what this place was.
  • I can't believe
  • you're still defending him.
  • Help me track him down, Suzu.
  • He'll listen to you.
  • We'll reopen the Gate,
  • find a cure, end this.
  • Johnny's your brother.
  • It's never been as easy
  • for him as it has for you.
  • But, like it or not,
  • he's family.
  • And family means
  • we take care of each other.
  • What can I do?
  • The FBI, CIA, and NSA
  • have blips of Reed
  • here and there...
  • but they can't seem to see...
  • A pattern.
  • A pattern.
  • Where was he last seen?
  • Three months ago, in Panama.
  • Did you get an IP?
  • Early on, he was using
  • some old, buried e-mail accounts.
  • Bouncing off satellites.
  • He's keeping himself
  • pretty well hidden.
  • For a short while, we were able
  • to ping him, here and there.
  • Caught him on a few sites.
  • He was looking for
  • scrap metal, buying parts.
  • Never stayed online that long.
  • Was he looking
  • for anything else?
  • He was searching for him.
  • I'm gonna need some music.
  • Excuse me?
  • I need music.
  • It helps me think.
  • The valve is worn, it's not worth twenty.
  • I'll give you ten.
  • I got people who work for me.
  • Twenty or no deal.
  • I'll give you five and I'll
  • fix your register for free.
  • Gracias.
  • Captain Nemo.
  • That's him.
  • He's routing his e-mails
  • through this relay.
  • Got him.
  • You did what you had to do.
  • Hi, Ben.
  • We've got another
  • project for you.
  • I think you're gonna
  • like this one.
  • Freeze! Do not move!
  • Get down on the ground!
  • Freeze!
  • Oh, my God. Ben!
  • So, this is where
  • you've been hiding out.
  • Wait, stop.
  • Okay, let me explain.
  • Why?
  • I'm no good to you, to anyone.
  • This is all my fault.
  • That, we can agree on.
  • Does it hurt?
  • I'm used to it.
  • I'm sorry.
  • That's what you said
  • when you left.
  • I'm going to fix this.
  • You can't fix this.
  • Nobody can.
  • I promise you,
  • I'm going to fix this.
  • I stopped believing in your
  • bullshit a long time ago.
  • You were my best friend.
  • Look at me.
  • I'm not your friend.
  • You turned me
  • into something else.
  • Nice work, Ben!
  • Hey, Reed.
  • Look, I'm sorry,
  • but I didn't have a choice.
  • We need your help
  • to finish the Gate.
  • It's the only chance
  • we have to figure out
  • what happened to us,
  • and reverse it.
  • You really think
  • that they care about us?
  • You know how they've used Ben.
  • Yeah. I do.
  • And they're gonna do
  • the same thing
  • to Johnny if we don't stop them.
  • The only shot we've got is on
  • the other side of that Gate.
  • Do you ever wonder what
  • life would have been like...
  • if you hadn't come
  • to the science fair that day?
  • We can't change the past.
  • But we can change the future.
  • You said you wanted your work
  • to make a difference.
  • This is it.
  • This is your chance.
  • Are you ready?
  • You made it ugly.
  • It's good to see you again, son.
  • I'm gonna need ten minutes.
  • To do what?
  • I need to make a couple
  • adjustments to the source code.
  • You have a few steps
  • that are out of order.
  • It can't be that simple.
  • It might not be ten minutes.
  • It could be a little less.
  • Come on. Let's go.
  • I got a good feeling, Stan.
  • I'm gonna crack five seconds.
  • Hey, could I take a couple
  • of minutes with my son?
  • Sure, no problem.
  • Guys, can you give us
  • five minutes?
  • What's going on?
  • Reed is back.
  • We're closer than
  • we've ever been before.
  • Closer to what?
  • Our old lives.
  • Oh, you mean your life?
  • No, son.
  • You always said
  • I had the potential
  • to do something important.
  • Who's to say this isn't it?
  • Sometimes things
  • just happen for a reason.
  • Johnny, you have no idea
  • what they are planning
  • to do to you.
  • They're not doing
  • anything to me.
  • I'm doing this with them.
  • Johnny, you need
  • to listen to me...
  • I did listen to you,
  • and that's what
  • got me here in the first place.
  • I'm an adult.
  • I'm old enough to
  • make my own decisions.
  • Clear for launch.
  • Stand by.
  • Look who it is.
  • Hey.
  • It's good seeing you, man.
  • Good to see you, too.
  • Sonic projectors engaged.
  • Goggles up.
  • Initiate launch.
  • Systems check complete.
  • We have a visual.
  • Roger that, Control.
  • Are you receiving
  • atmospheric data?
  • Copy that.
  • Checking configuration.
  • Data transmission looks good.
  • The landscape's changed.
  • How?
  • I don't know,
  • it's just different.
  • Commencing element
  • and geological test series.
  • Copy.
  • Hey, Control, I'm picking up
  • a heat signature
  • about 60 yards away.
  • Now, what could that be?
  • Hard to make out.
  • The signal keeps fluctuating.
  • It's moving.
  • Heading towards us.
  • Copy that.
  • Proceed with caution.
  • Do you have a visual?
  • It appears to be a human form...
  • with some sort of
  • foreign element around it.
  • I knew you'd come back.
  • Victor?
  • Not possible.
  • Subject appears injured.
  • Get the med kit.
  • Let's get him to the shuttle.
  • Grab him. Come on.
  • Easy, guys.
  • Abort. Bring him back.
  • Aborting mission.
  • Stabilize the subject
  • and prepare for transport.
  • Oh, shit.
  • Preparing for launch.
  • Transfer the subject
  • to Containment Room One.
  • Copy that.
  • His thermal signature
  • is barely registering.
  • His biochemistry
  • is off the charts.
  • I want to talk to him.
  • Nobody talks to him until I do.
  • Confine the others
  • to their quarters.
  • Victor?
  • We don't know how
  • you survived over there
  • but we're still
  • analyzing the data.
  • It appears that your
  • environment suit
  • fused with your body...
  • but we're working on that.
  • We're going to help you, Victor.
  • We're working with
  • the government now.
  • We're going to send more
  • expeditions to the other side
  • but first you need
  • to tell us everything
  • you know about that place.
  • You want to know how I survived?
  • That place kept me alive.
  • Gave me strength.
  • Power.
  • What kind of power?
  • The kind men like you
  • must never possess.
  • You couldn't resist coming back.
  • It's not enough
  • to ruin your world.
  • Now you want to ruin mine.
  • Victor.
  • If this world must die
  • so that mine may live...
  • so be it.
  • Code Red. Code Red.
  • There is an emergency
  • in this building.
  • Follow standard
  • emergency protocols.
  • Proceed to the nearest exit
  • and leave
  • the building immediately.
  • Code Red. Code Red.
  • There is an emergency
  • in this building.
  • Follow standard
  • emergency protocols.
  • Code Red. Code Red.
  • There is an emergency
  • in this building.
  • Follow standard
  • emergency protocols.
  • Proceed to the nearest exit
  • and leave
  • the building immediately.
  • Running away again?
  • No.
  • Sue!
  • My bad! Are you okay?
  • Yeah, I'm all right.
  • Where's Dad?
  • Victor, no.
  • Just stop!
  • Out of my way, Franklin.
  • I'm going home.
  • This is your home, son.
  • Not anymore.
  • There is nothing
  • for you over there.
  • Only the power
  • to create a new world.
  • Victor, we're not gods.
  • We're just people.
  • And we are stronger together
  • than we are apart.
  • What good is it if you're alone?
  • I have always been alone.
  • Victor, stop!
  • Just stop!
  • It's too late, Susan.
  • The Earth is dying.
  • Humanity had its chance.
  • No!
  • Dad!
  • Dad! No!
  • Dad, no, I'm sorry!
  • Dad, no!
  • Dad!
  • Dad!
  • Dad, move!
  • Victor, no!
  • Promise me.
  • What?
  • Look after each other.
  • Dad, I'm sorry!
  • Dad, I'm sorry.
  • Dad, please.
  • No!
  • He's overloading the system
  • to create a runaway reaction.
  • It's not gonna stop!
  • It'll create a black hole
  • that'll swallow the Earth!
  • He's pulling everything
  • into the other dimension!
  • Hold on!
  • Johnny!
  • Got it!
  • The matter from Earth is
  • being converted to energy!
  • We need to stop Victor!
  • He's the source!
  • He's mine!
  • I have an idea.
  • This is what I do.
  • Where are you, Susan?
  • Victor, don't do this!
  • There is no Victor.
  • There is only Doom.
  • I saw a different future
  • for us, Susan.
  • Help me!
  • Reed!
  • Ben!
  • Goodbye, Susan.
  • Ah!
  • Reed!
  • Is he dead?
  • If that thing's
  • still active, so is he.
  • We can't beat him.
  • He's stronger than any of us.
  • Yeah, he is.
  • But he's not stronger
  • than all of us.
  • Look, this place
  • gave him his powers...
  • but it gave us all of ours, too.
  • It's who we are now.
  • Maybe it's who
  • we're meant to be.
  • We opened this door,
  • we're gonna close it.
  • So, what's the plan?
  • Enough!
  • When your world is destroyed,
  • and I'm all that's left...
  • then it will be enough.
  • Always so smug,
  • thinking you were
  • smarter than me.
  • I am smarter than you.
  • Now!
  • Hey! It's clobbering time!
  • This better work.
  • No.
  • Let's get the hell out of here!
  • While the world may not know
  • what you did to save it...
  • The men and the women
  • in this room do.
  • And so does the President.
  • That said,
  • we'd like to continue
  • our existing relationship.
  • So, if we're all in agreement...
  • We're not.
  • Excuse me?
  • We're not remotely
  • "all in agreement."
  • We don't need you or anybody
  • else to keep an eye on us.
  • We just want a place
  • where we can work.
  • And whatever we come up with
  • belongs to us.
  • And what if we say no?
  • Say yes.
  • How much space
  • are we talking about?
  • A lot.
  • Whoa. Hey.
  • So, uh, I thought there were
  • gonna be four of you?
  • Oh, there is.
  • Labs are upstairs.
  • Engineering's on the south side
  • and Assembly's downstairs.
  • We've been operating out of
  • here for over 12 years, now.
  • Well, officially, that is.
  • But you still
  • won't find our name
  • on any government books.
  • Most people just refer
  • to this as, uh, Central City.
  • But call it whatever you want.
  • We work for you now.
  • Oh, wow.
  • Now, that's what
  • I'm talking about.
  • That's pretty nice.
  • I'm taking that area over there.
  • I could get used to this.
  • I got it.
  • The "Franklin Storm
  • Research Center."
  • Dad was kind of allergic
  • to his name in big letters.
  • Which reminds me,
  • I think that the four of us
  • should have a name.
  • Why would we need a name?
  • Because we're a team now,
  • and there's four of us
  • so we should come up
  • with a name for it.
  • Like, "The Human Torch
  • and the Torchettes."
  • Ugh.
  • No.
