The Way It All Began - The Fantastic Four

Still the best adaption of "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine" that's been done. I don't know how such a simple concept can be so easily and quickly screwed up, and yet they do it time after time. It's also baffling that this hasn't been released on home video either, though I reckon it has something to do with the rights or something.

This particular version has opening narration; I've seen it without it, and I think this was added later. There's also some episodes with previews, but it's been years since I've seen those. This episode shows the origin of heroes, complete with WWII references. Reed and Ben must have been in their 30s by then. Still, it's pretty faithful. Except maybe... "torch on"?
