Seeking to end his existence, the chronal being known as Tempus set in motion a plan to end all time. To this end, he manipulated Willie Lumpkin the mailman of the Fantastic Four of Earth-616. He mentally enthralled Lumpkin to enter the FF's Baxter Building headquarters and go back in time via Doctor Doom's Time Platform. Lumpkin was sent back in time to 1777 where he inadvertently caused the capture of George Washington by the British. He was then transported to Chicago circa 1928 where he was influenced into giving forewarning of the impending stockmarket crash to members of the mob. The two drastic changes in history caused the present day Earth to be transformed into a savage jungle filled with primitives. Unaffected by this reality warp were the members of the Fantastic Four who were on a test flight in space for NASA. Returning to Earth, they realized what was wrong and were assisted by the Watcher in restoring time. While Mister Fantastic and the Human Torch prevented Washington from being executed in 1777, the Thing and Medusa prevented Willie from tipping off the mob. The group late defeated Tempus, seemingly destroying their foe. [1]

As a result of their actions, these changes in history endure in alternate realities while Earth-616 was restored to normal. These realities are indexed as Earth-74082 for the primitive modern era, Earth-74820 where Washington was assassinated, and Earth-82074 where the mob took advantage of the stock market crash. [2]
