I don't think he'd be all that compelling on his own. He'd be like Skurge, or Shocker. His main purpose would be to be a dark shadow to Reed in comparison on sciencey stuff, and maybe like a creeper threat for Sue.

I think Mole Man would be best involving some sort of extraterrestrial/extradimensional creatures that he's tasked with studying and finds some manner of way to control them. Perhaps they come from the Negative Zone, which would set up the F4 venturing there in a sequel. The first movie's focus will inevitably be on establishing the new heroes. But just because the villain isn't the highlight doesn't mean he can't be compelling or memorable.
Am I? It seems like we came to the same conclusion.
