"Imagine hundreds and hundreds of years of scientific process. When you think about it, we are only limited by what we are provided with. That's where we step in. The Future Foundation has everything we need for eternity. Hundreds of years worth of scientific adaptation, condensed into a week. That's us. That's the future."

Powers and Abilities
Pliable Bacterial Stacks - Reed's cells have been replaced with "pliable bacterial stacks," single cells which duplicate most of the larger functions of the human body. This allows him to stretch his body in countless ways without disrupting the necessary functions of internal organs such as the kidneys, lungs, or even brain. Reed can stretch any or all of his body parts long distances, even assuming non-human shapes such as a sphere or parachute.
Above-Genius Intellect - Reed Richards is a child prodigy and possesses a keen scientific intellect, decades ahead of his time. This was further enhanced by the gene-altering accident.
