History

Origin

The Fantastic Four's costumes and the rest of their wardrobe, are made of "unstable molecules". This means that the suit is attuned to their powers, which is why Johnny's costume doesn't burn when he "flames on," Sue's costume turns invisible when she does, and Reed's costume stretches with him. The costume also insulates them from electrical assaults. A full body suit was also given to The Thing but he ripped through the top half before starting their first mission using them.[1]

Capabilities

In addition, the team's uniforms are also, in essence, wearable computers. Their costumes have a complete data processing and telemetry system woven into the material of the uniform on a molecular level. This forms a network with the entire team, providing a constant, real-time uplink of everyone's physical condition as well as their location and current situation. The uniforms are capable of displaying data and touch-pad controls on the gloves. Its sensors can track all of the team's uniforms and provide a picture of their immediate vicinity. The suits have an intricate scanner system which can detect things around the wearer, from how many people are in the next room to what dimension or planet they are on. Reed can also up-link the bodysuit to any computer by stretching his fingertips to filament size and plugging them in to an I/O data-port. With this, Reed can establish a fairly comprehensive database of any computer's cybernetic protocols and encryption algorithms.

The third generation of unstable molecules was able to let Spider-Man change his suit coloring and markings, allowing him to switch between his Future Foundation outfit and his regular outfit.[2][3]

The unstable molecules can also be altered to create a unhackable and indestructible data storage unit, such as the Omegadrive.[4]
