The Yancy St. Four by tarunbanned The Yancy St. Four by tarunbanned
Re-imagined the Fantastic Four as a group of youths, who, due to a mysterious freak accident, gained powers. I've made their uniforms of a more urban street vibe. I also tried to keep a logo (sort of) , in the form of the stripes running on the side of the clothing.Rather than change their powers completely, I wanted to re-imagine their back stories:

Benny is a young street thug who used to run with the Yancy Street Gang, but was kicked out because he wouldn't kill someone on orders of the gang leader. He became a walking brick wall. "(That) Thing" - As the Yancy Street now call him. I modified his brick skin texture to match more with a brick wall rather than the original cobblestone type design.

Suzzy, the pretty, street smart girl on the block has always known how to use her looks to her advantage, has to now learn how to come to terms with NOT being seen, with her power of Invisibility. Lucky for her, she's pretty darn smart.

Suzzy's brother John, is an unstable young man. He committed his first arson when he was 5 years old. Now, years later, he still hasn't changed, as he has gained pyro-related powers as the "Torch".

Lastly, Reed, Benny's childhood friend, is a very smart young man, using his talents to pull cons on the streets. He's as slippery as an eel, and as slick as rubber. His power's mirror this. He calls himself "Mr.Fantastic". Ben calls him "Stretch". John calls him "MiSter Fantabulous", mock-teasing Reed's sexual orientation. Maybe that's John's way of dealing with the fact that Reed is with John's sister, Suzzy.

Together, all four of them, take on the Yancy Street Gang and take the Street back from them. They eventually, become local vigilante's using their abilities for good, stopping gang violence and thwarting the street gangs as the "Yancy St. Four".
