When the Fantastic Four and the Avengers sacrificed their lives to destroy Onslaught, Franklin Richards, the son of the FF's Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman subconsciously created a pocket universe to save their lives. There they spent an entire year reliving living new lives "reborn" into a reality where they recently gained their abilities that vaguely mirror how they gained their powers originally.

In this new universe, Franklin created populated universe, including recreations of many of these heroes allies and foes. Among these creations was one based on Avengers foe the Grim Reaper.

This version of the Grim Reaper was a mercenary that worked along side Hawkeye and Hellcat on a mission in Argentina before the two joined Counter-Earth's version of the Avengers. It has been implied that Hawkeye and the Grim Reaper had close ties, but what those were as well as the nature of their mission in Argentina remain unrevealed. The Grim Reaper was also later reported to be dead, however the facts surrounding his death are also unrevealed.

When the Avengers later realized that the gamma core of their former Avengers Island base was a rip in the space-time fabric and creating new villains for them to fight, the Grim Reaper was one of the foes that was about to be spawned into existence before his energies were disbursed by Iron Man. The ultimate fate of the Grim Reaper remains unrevealed.
