First of all before i start i am not counting the 1990s VHS version of the team.

By now you have probably seen the new Fantastic Four film and was as disappointed as me, so i am counting down 4 reasons why the original Fantastic Four from 2005 is better than the new reboot.

First of all i was not a huge fan of the old version however i believe it is still a lot better than this new reboot

1. Dr Doom fashion sense!

When seeing the new film i was extremely disappointed by Dr Dooms new look and from a quick look on Youtube and blog reviews a lot of other people were too!

I am sure everyone can agree that this...

Looks a lot better than this...

2. Wheres Stan?!

One of the highlights of watching a Marvel superhero film is spotting Stan Lee doing his traditional cameo.

In 2005's Fantastic Four and 2007's Rise of the silver surfer sequel both had a Stan Lee cameo like all the other Marvel superhero films but in the new reboot of Marvel first superhero family, he was nowhere to be seen.

3. Jessica Alba

Look at this picture!

This is as good as a reason as any!

4. Characterization

Back on a serious note, i feel that the Human torch is the best example for this. In the comics he designed as a hot head and a guy who continuously jokes and messes around, that was shown really well with Chris Evans in the role when he continuously makes fun of Ben Grimm (The Thing) in the 2005 film.

However in the new reboot the Human torch did not match the comics very well, he was portrayed as too serious, near the end of the film he makes a couple of jokes its nothing compared to the original or the comics.
