|“||They said it all started with a flash in the sky and a ripple through the clouds. Nobody knows what caused this exactly, but some people think it might be a punch. Was he really that strong? Had the infection made him so determined to get here in search of a brand new food supply? At the time I said no... but having experienced this hunger firsthand I'm afraid that I now know better. The Avengers were the first on the scene. Can you picture them? Faces grave, concerned for all those human casualties. That idiot Colonel America reassuring everyone that everything would be fine now that the superheroes have arrived. What they didn't know is that the infection had targeted the superheroes of this dimension and a thousand realities before us. This was how it consumed, you see... by infecting superheroes just like him and sending them out to infect the others. Within twenty-four hours, we'd consumed the entire planet. One superhero from an infected universe... That was all it took to end an entire world.||„|
|~ Reed Richards explaining how the zombie plague started.|
Reed Richards, better known as Mr. Fantastic, is a major villain in the Marvel Zombies comic series. Reed, along with almost every other hero and villain became a flesh eating zombie after Sentry of Earth-91126 came on their dimension.
He is the main antagonist of Ultimate Fantastic Four issues #21-23 and 30-32, one of the main antagonists of Marvel Zombies: Dead Days, a minor antagonist of Marvel Zombies Vs. Army of Darkness. Additionally, his Earth-21050 self appears as the main antagonist of Marvel Zombies: Evil Evolution.
In Dead Days, Reed is first seen mourning the death of his children, who were killed by a zombie She-Hulk. Although Sue killed her, their children, Franklin and Valeria were gone. This caused disaster later on.
Reed is next seen helping Thor and Nova against some infected. The FF, Thor and Nova then arrived at the SHIELD Helicarrier, where Fury explained to the uninfected what was occurring. He also told Reed, Tony Stark, and Bruce Banner to make a cure. Unfortunately, Stark made the mistake of trusting Reed and Banner to work alone, leading to yet more danger.
Reed is then seen admiring a zombie that Magneto killed earlier and telling Sue that the zombies were advanced life forms.
After the resistance has fallen so much, Reed tells the FF he infected them when they entered his lab. When they infect him, he reveals he has gone insane. He and his team then infect the remaining heroes and kill Fury, ending the resistance.
Reed then tricks his 1610 counterpart into coming to his dimension. Then he and the FF go to his dimension where they are soon imprisoned.
With his craftiness, Reed and the FF escape imprisonment and try bringing Hulk and Thor to Earth 1610, unaware Thor was killed by this point. in the end Reed and his team are killed by Dr. Doom and are dumped back in the streets of their own dimension.
- Despite that the Hunger Virus has no cure and thus it would have been impossible for Reed Richards as well as Tony Stark and Bruce Banner to find a solution to the plague, this incarnation of Reed Richards is hated by most fans given that his fall into insanity and obsession to become a zombie himself by infecting his teammates were one of the main reasons for which the Hunger Virus advanced for worse, leaving Tony Stark unable to perfectly create a portal that could have transported the survivors to another universe (much like Doctor Doom later does).
- Although Zombie Giant-Man is the overarching antagonist of the Marvel Zombies metaseries, Zombie Mr. Fantastic is the main antagonist of Ultimate Fantastic Four #21-23 because he had bigger plans than anyone else whereas Zombie Giant-Man was relegated as a supporting antagonist. Plus, Zombie Giant-Man had yet to develop his true evil ways by that time.
