Event Synopsis

On April 14, 1865[1] at Ford's Theatre[2] in Washington, D.C., the President of the United States of America Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by well-known stage actor John Wilkes Booth while attending the play Our American Cousin. He was Shot in the head as he watched the play, Lincoln died the following day. He was the first U.S. president to be assassinated.[3]


After his death Andrew Johnson was appointed president[4] and the nation went into a state of morning.

In an experiment the time traveler Immortas travelled back to 1865 and altered time so Booth failed to kill the President Lincoln because of Lincoln's instinctive reaction that managed to hit Booth's hand as soon as he heard the click of the gun. Booth was erased from existence when Immortus destroyed his reality.[5]

Later While taking a tour of Washington, D.C., Gorgilla along with Reed Richards noticed the Lincoln Memorial transformed into a statue of Zarrko the Tomorrow Man. Moments later, Zarrko himself teleported in and Gorgilla heard the time tossed tyrant say his plan to become president of the world had worked. Angered by this, the man-ape threw a giant slab of pavement at Zarrko, thereby apparently killing him. Gorgilla found Zarrko's time glove and by accident was teleported to April 15th, 1865 where he inadvertently prevented John Wilkes Booth and Zarrko from killing president Lincoln. While grabbing Zarrko he was teleported back to the present creating Earth-97666. It is in the new timeline he noticed the statue of Lincoln was now holding a puppet. In this new timeline Gorgilla had become the President himself, he figured he should let the Man in the Blue Pajamas fix this, but only after he enjoyed being president for one day.[1]

President Lincoln was later raised from the dead as a Zombie along with George Washington. Together they planned to burn the US to the ground in hopes of starting from scratch. Deadpool tried to stop them at Independence Hall. Deadpool then made a joke about how he was "killed by an actor", in response Zombie Lincoln shot Deadpool in the back of the head, through the left eyeball, "John Wilkes Booth style."[6] He later faced Deadpool again and he said "Booth got the drop on him."[7]
