The past history of Earth-30987 mirrors that of Earth-616 up until prior to the original Secret Wars. A divergence occurred when the Thing of Earth-616 took possession of his past self in an attempt to change history so that he could marry Alicia Masters instead of his best friend Human Torch in his own time.

As a result, the Thing prevented himself from being whisked away to Battleworld to fight in the Secret Wars. He then asked Alicia to marry him and she accepted. When Reed and the Human Torch returned from the Secret Wars, the wedding went on. However, eventually the Thing grew guilty over robbing Johnny and Alicia of future happiness and called the wedding off at the last possible moment. Ben then fled the wedding and had his ally Thundra return him to his own time. [1]

Differences and Clarifications

There are a number of factors that are not clearly explored that were true on Earth-616 at the time of its divergence from Earth-30987.

On Earth-616, Alicia Masters was replaced by the Skrull spy known as Lyja, while most of the Fantastic Four were participating in the Secret Wars. [2] It is unclear if this is the case on Earth-30987. In addition, at the time of the Secret Wars, Susan Richards was due to give birth to her second child at this point in time. [3] a pregnancy that tragically ended with the child being stillborn. [4] However on Earth-30987 Sue does not appear to be pregnant when the heroes return from the Secret Wars. An explanation is not presently available.

Lastly, because the Thing remained with the Fantastic Four, it does not appear that the She-Hulk joined the ranks of the group like her Earth-616 counterpart did after the Secret Wars. [3] However, despite this difference, she appears to have engaged in a relationship with her reality's Wyatt Wingfoot much as they did on Earth-616. [5]
