Sue's father, William, wasn't around very much when she was young. After her mother died in a car accident, he would disappear for weeks. Sue was forced to grow up fast in order to raise her little brother, Johnny. When Sue was fourteen, she discovered her father disappeared to go gambling, rather than work on science, like he claims to be doing. She reported her own father for negligence and he was arrested.
Sue and Johnny were foster children for nearly two weeks. A nice family with no children, the Franklins, adopted them. Sue wasn't as fond of them as Johnny was. She tended to keep her distance, but she was still social with them. High School was a tough time for her, but she befriended Reed Richards and Ben Grimm. She eventually formed a relationship with Reed.
After graduating, she joined Reed in experimenting on cosmic radiation. After it was finished, Johnny and Ben were both invited to see the test. However, something went terribly wrong and the four of them were bombarded with cosmic rays, mutating each of them in a special way. After she managed to calm Ben down, Reed had the idea of using their powers for good, to which they all agreed.
Reed used his family fortune to purchase the Baxter Building as their base of operations. Sue also hired Victor Vandore as their secretary and lawyer. During the first couple of weeks of the FF's fame, she developed an infatuation for Victor, but after they shared a kiss she decided it was wrong, but she still felt something for him.
