The parallels to the FF, while not as direct as The Incredibles - is STUNNING! Metamorpho speaks almost like he grew up on Yancy Street.

Elastic Man is as troublesome, if not more so, than Johnny in the role of group D-bag. He and Metamorpho seem to have the sibling rivalry going like Johnny and Ben did.

Not sure what Phantom Girls' role will be, to be honest. She's Z-lister amond D-listers and her powers are rather uninteresting.

The art, in true DC fashion, puts Marvel to shame. If DC can do a better FF, then by all means, I'll check it out.

What is interesting about the Terrifics is the differences, not the similarities between the two groups.

Metamorpho is sort of like Ben Grimm. But he isn't a Yancy Street Muscle guy. He's a suave archeologist and playboy who found the Orb of Ra and got powers from it. He's a smart guy who knows his way around different cultures and different societies. He's Indiana Jones, but with the ability to change his molecular structure.

Plastic Man is sort of like Johnny Storm. But unlike Johnny, Plastic Man was a hardened criminal that became an FBI Agent. His lighter side is a mask for a very serious G-Man that wants to do good. Another one of his traits that, unlike Johnny, he is tempted to becoming a criminal on occasion.

Phase is something of an enigma, because this is the first time we see her. But her last name is Wazzo, so that probably aligns with some of the traits of other women who have taken the Phase name and have the last name of Wazzo. She's attracted to bad boys, while keeping this front of being a good and proper person. She's part of this matriarchy that she will eventually inherit. When she phases, part of her phases into her native Bgtzl, so she sometimes has conversations with different people that phase in and out of her homeworld.

Mr. T is sort of like Mr. F in that they're both the smartest men. But Mr. T has had to live with the death of his wife and child. While Mr. T used to be a man of faith, he has given it up to be a man of science.
