Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr Fantastic walks in on Invisible Girl as she steps out of the shower, we see her covering up with a red towel, but in the next shot, it's a brown towel. (00:55:45)

Factual error: When Reed and Sue are testing the Human Torch's powers, they claim that a temperature as high as the Human Torch's (5000 K to 6000 K) will "ignite the atmosphere and destroy all life". This is incorrect. Many experiments in the lab and on the field have produced temperatures several orders of magnitude larger than the temperature of the Human Torch on a similar scale. Nuclear explosions can generate temperatures in excess of 8000000 K, and temperatures produced by the largest X-ray generator (the Z machine) have been as high as 3700000000 K. Such tests have not ignited the atmosphere.

Other mistake: Julian McMahon's real Australian accent slips through when his assistant asks him if he should rest and McMahon says, "Later. First I have some unfinished business to attend to."

Continuity mistake: Just after Ben has been in the machine and is turned back to normal, Victor attacks Reed and knocks him through the window. The amount and shape of the glass that is still in the window has changed.


Other mistake: Johnny picks up Sue's clothes and hides them in his jacket after she strips on the bridge, but when the shot changes to the stunned crowd, we can see Reed and Johnny running off to the left. From the way Johnny's arms are moving, you can tell he is no longer holding the clothes.

Ben Grimm: No more cracks about how I look.
Johnny Storm: Hey, call me Mr. Sensitivity. Everybody out of the way! Wide load coming through! He's huge!
