Introduction

Often touted as the "First Family of Superheroes," the Fantastic Four are one of the oldest and most well known superhero groups in all of fiction. The group consists of four family members and friends; internationally lauded scientist and world class intellect Reed Richards helms the team as Mr. Fantastic, his loving wife, Susan Storm, acts as the team's second in command under her Invisible Woman moniker, Sue's younger brother Johnny provides firepower for the team as the Human Torch, and close friend of the family, Ben Grimm, backs the team up as The Thing. The Fantastic Four are opposed by their long time nemesis, the villainous Victor von Doom.

Fantastic Four Inspired Dog Name Considerations

The Fantastic Four's powers were given to them after the group were bombarded with cosmic rays during an outer space expedition. Each of them received powers that matched their personalities in a variety of ways. Mr. Fantastic's ability to stretch and elongate his body adequately matches his expansive intellect and his initially distant and aloof demeanor. Susan Storm was initially only able to turn herself invisible (a reflection of her tendency to undervalue herself,) but she later learned to project and manipulate powerful force fields once she began to adopt more forceful and assertive personality traits. Johnny was extremely hot headed early on, but he also possesses a very lively and warm personality that attracts others to him. Ben's transformation into a massive, rocky golem might seem extreme until you take into account Ben's tendencies of viewing himself as a protector of others and being very guarded and reserved with his innermost feelings. 

So while the members of the Fantastic Four may not physically resemble any dogs by any stretch of the imagination, each of them share personality traits with many well known breeds. Consider naming an energetic dog Johnny, or Torch after the Human Torch, or a very kind yet stern dog Susan, after the Invisible Woman.
