Challengers of the Fantastic are the Amalgam of Marvel Comics' Fantastic Four and DC Comics' Challengers of the Unknown.

History

The Challengers of the Fantastic consisted of several "death-cheating" agents, as they were nicknamed. Situated in a cave inside Fantastic Mountain, they monitored the area outside New York City and offered help where it was needed.

Access to New York City is usually from the airplane hangar built into the mountain itself, although there are rumors of caverns leading from the base into the valley below.
