The Wizard tried to use these clones of himself to defeat the Fantastic Four. The clones were stopped by Mr. Fantastic, when he tracked down the Wizard's secret lab. Mr. Fantastic defeated the Wizard and had him taken away by the authorities.[citation needed]

Bentley Twenty-Three was taken home by Mr. Fantastic, who treated the boy as if he was one of his own children. The young clone often referred to himself as Twenty-Three, this was because he believed he had not earned the right to call himself by his father's name. Although the Fantastic Four and the rest of his friends still called him Bentley. After some time he accepted who he was and believed he had earned the name. Bentley Twenty-Three then joined the Future Foundation.[citation needed]
