Arthur Richards is the first child of Nathaniel Richards and his wife Cassandra. Nathaniel was a time traveler from an alternate Earth designated Earth-616. When he came to Earth-6311—dubbed Other-Earth—he helped revitalize that world as the Caretaker. Richards then took his wife Cassandra who begat him two children: Arthur,[4] and a daughter named Tara.[3][5]

While Nathaniel was otherwise occupied with his new son, Cassandra secretly terrorized the outside world as the Warlord, making it look like her husband was really the tyrant.[6] However, the Earth-616 heroes known as the Fantastic Four—whose leader, Mister Fantastic, was Nathaniel's son from a previous marriage—arrived looking for Nathaniel. The group exposed Cassandra's duplicity ending in her death. Nathaniel parted company with the Fantastic Four to raise his infant son.[4]

After many years, a grown Arthur was visited by Reed Richards in Elsewhen. He had taken up the title of the War Marshal, and was evidently a cyborg.[7]

It has been implied that Arthur is the ancestor of the 30th century's Nathaniel Richards, who later went on to be various time-traveling heroes, villains, and conquerors such as Iron Lad, Kid Immortus, Rama-Tut, Scarlet Centurion, Kang, and Immortus.
