    Default Create a X4 team...to replace the Fantastic Four.

    The Fantastic Four have gone missing and the Quiet Council has decided to send 4 mutants to find/replace the FF..

    Let's say the Council (the team) has complete access to the FF's headquarter, logs and equipment. The primary mission of this team is to find the Fantastic Four and protect humanity.

    Who do you pick...?

    Let's go with the same format(a 1:1 replacement).

    Kitty Pryde(leader, replaces invisible woman)
    Colossus(Thing)
    Sunfire(Human Torch)
    Skin(Mr. Fantastic, although leader/brains is Kitty); conversely, if you want telepathic leader, fall back to Charles Xavier

    Done and done! Lol

    Honestly, I think it's more important to think of the characters chosen as archetypes rather than in terms of powers, as it is the character dynamics within the group that makes the FF interesting.

    Thing: The tough guy, the team curmudgeon. Wolverine is easily the most curmudgeonly of franchise, and loves a good fight. He has also been a member of the Fantastic Four in the past.

    The Human Torch: The kid brother, the jokester. Iceman was originally the youngest X-Man and filled this role to a tee. He can get pretty annoying with the constant jokes, and he has a lot of bravado even if he isn't nearly as egotistical as Johnny Storm.

    Invisible Woman: The team mom. The glue that holds this circus all together. Confident, pragmatic, warm and loving but also a disciplinarian. Jean Gray or Storm generally embody these traits more than most others. Like Logan, Storm has also been a substitute FF team member in the past. I'm leaning towards Storm, but if Cyclops is team leader than Jean works better, as you also have the romantic chemistry.

    Mr. Fantastic: Science dad. This is where I get stuck. Cyclops has the leadership role and respect from his teammates that allows him to quickly and confidently delegate tasks to the others, but lacks the scientific know-how to deal with the cosmic shenanigans the FF get into, and might not be able to operate the FF's equipment that Reed designed. Beast has the knowledge, but I don't think anyone really respects or trusts him nowadays to be de facto team leader. (He's closer to Ultimate Reed Richards currently.) Forge maybe? Inventing is his mutant power, so I don't know how much that works into understanding OTHER people's inventions, he has also been a team leader of sorts for brief periods, although he doesn't seem to command quite the respect that Scott Summers does. So I don't know, as there is no one character truly analogous to Reed Richards on the X-Men.

    After some thought...

    Mister Fantastic - Forge
    Invisible Woman - Rachel Grey-Summers
    Human Torch - Havok (Peter Davis's Alex, not the current crap from Avengers/Axis)
    Thing - Colossus

    Forge-Mr F tech guy
    Surge-human Torch but flips the script and becomes the leader
    Strong Guy- strong person but could be curmedgeon.
    Siryn- versatile powerset but flips the script and is the character most watched by the other three.

    Franklin: Is a mutant, no matter what Damn Slutt says. He could help them look for his family. Could be a parallel to his father.
    Kitty: Has a connection to Franklin & the Fantastic Four. Also an Invisible Woman parallel.
    Wolverine or X-23: New Fantastic Four/Circle of Four members. The bruiser, making them a Thing parallel.
    Pyro: Not associated with the Fantastic Four, and not really reliable. But aside from being a fire guy, I just like the idea of him being a meaner version of Johnny. He'd be a nice foil to the rest of the team, but would stay onboard because he has good intentions.

    I figure the best people might be those who have a connection to the team or characters, and Pyro. They can be compared to the main members, but are still unique and offer something different.
