Charles Darwin was a British naturalist who presented compelling evidence that all life on Earth had evolved from common ancestor. His theory of evolution had become widely accepted by the time of death. His theory on natural selection being the primary process of evolution would not see sufficient support until the 1930's.

A young biologist Dr. Nathaniel Essex in 1859, Victorian England, who developed advanced theories on human evolution and was obsessed with Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, though he felt Darwin and his contemporaries were shackled by too many moral constraints and that science was beyond morality.

He had a regular dinner club, people of science calling themselves the X-Club and supporting his ideas.[5]

Marvel Apes

Darwin once annoyed the Ancient One and was transported to the Marvel Apes Universe.[6]

When he arrived he was met by L-ook-i who using his magic to split Darwin into three bodies "Human Darwin", "Ape Darwin", and "Future Darwin"). However "Future Darwin" used advanced intellect to transform Human Darwin into the "Low Evolutionary".[1] Eventually "Future Darwin" and "Ape Darwin" were combined into a single person and sent back to the Earth-616, while the Low Evolutionary stayed in the Marvel Apes Universe.[7]


He passed away on the 19th April, 1882. His funeral took place at Westminster Abbey. Dr. Nathaniel Essex attended the event honoring his hero amused in the irony that the man who was once vilified was being buried in the highest church of the land.[8]
