The past history of the Sphinx of Earth-97751 would mirror that of his Earth-616 counterpart until the day that Rohmann Dey endowed his Nova powers to a human on Earth. In this reality, these powers would be given to a criminal who would form an alliance with the Sphinx, the Red Skull and Doctor Doom to kill every superhero on Earth. Using Computer Prime, which monitored the heroes, the group knew when to strike, successfully succeeding in killing all the superheroes on Earth, with the Fantastic Four being the last heroes to be killed.

Sphinx eventually betrayed the group, entering Nova's room and blasting Nova down and turning the Red Skull to dust. Nova made a vain attempt to fight against the Sphinx by attacking him from behind, but the Sphinx easily overpowered him and turned him to dust as well.

Wanting to die, the Sphinx knew that the knowledge of how to kill him was implanted into the mind of one random person on Earth. Taking control of Computer Prime, the Sphinx began to telepathically scan the minds of every person on Earth, turning them into dead husks by the time that he was through with them. What the Sphinx didn't know, was that Nova was the one person that knew how to kill him, and thus the Sphinx failed in his quest, taking humanity down with him.[1]
