Fantastic Four face the banalities of superhero life

They may not be entirely human, but even superheroes struggle with the ups and downs of everyday life.For the Fantastic Four, that translates into a variety of issues suitable for dissection on The View, such as: Can superhero marriages survive the stress of saving the world on a daily basis?Can a man of stone find satisfaction of the flesh?
And is there a way for mortals, superheroes and extraterrestrial surfers to all get along?"We're dealing with different issues this time around," says Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer screenwriter Don Payne. "A lot of family stuff ... and issues of a larger, moral nature about the cost of conflict and the devastating effects of war."Payne says you can read what you like into the narrative's moral waypoints, and their apparent connection to the real world of current events, but in the big picture, the new F4 film is about balancing work and family.
