The past history of Ben Grimm of Earth-7712 mirrors that of his Earth-616 counterpart up until the faithful space flight that would lead to the formation of the Fantastic Four.

When four friends piloted a starship into space, they were exposed to cosmic rays that mutated them. Their personality traits affected the ways in which they were mutated. Ben Grimm, who had always loved flying, grew wings. He agreed with the others to use their powers for the benefit of mankind, becoming the Fantastic Four.

He and Sue began contemplating a relationship after Reed's transformation into Big Brain caused her to grow distant from him. Their developing relationship caused Reed to be tricked by Doctor Doom, who had promised to help him regain a human body, to power his time machine.

After Reed was trapped by Doom and his psychic energy was being used to power the time machine, Ben and the others fought their way into Doom's castle. After they had managed to reach the chamber, they were easily overpowered by Doom, who managed to active the time machine, which exploded. Big Brain's form was destroyed, but not before he could transfer his mind into Doom's body, displacing Doom's mind. Ben remained with the Fantastic Four after Reed renamed himself Mister Fantastic[1].

Ben and the others would be selected by the Time Variance Authority to foil a plot by Immortus to take over all time by absorbing massive amounts of chronal energy. Ben and the others would be transported to a point in Immortus' past and clash with is younger self. The younger version of Immortus would slay them with doomsday weapons[2]. While the TVA resurrected a number of the beings that they used in the Timequake event, it is unrevealed if Ben Grimm of Earth-7712 was among those who was resurrected.
