The Fantastic Four were the first superhero team created by the duo of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Marvel’s First Family debuted in the eponymous Fantastic Four #1, which has a cover date of November 1961. Lee and Kirby also created Kang the Conqueror, who himself debuted in 1964’s Avengers #8. That being said, Kang’s original alter ego, Rama-Tut, actually first appeared in the pages of Fantastic Four — more specifically, 1963’s Fantastic Four #19.
