but for Reed Richards to choose to call himself Mr. Fantastic is rather strange.

It actually makes perfect sense if you understand that Reed Richards is a total asshole - his best friend has just been turned into a rock monster due to Reed's shoddy job on shielding the ship and Ben says

"I ain't Ben anymore, I'm what Sue called me... The Thing"

and what are the next words out of Reed's mouth?

"And I'll call myself Mr. Fantastic!"

Guy is an asshole.
And the team ends up named after him... make that egotistical asshole.
