Origin: The Mad Celestials

In his reality, an invasion of the Mad Celestials caused a collapse of it into a single timestream and Franklin and Valeria were apparently, along Nathaniel Richards, the only survivors in this reality close to extinction.

Inferring with the past

He made a plan with Valeria and Nathaniel to save the reality, he traveled time and used his reality shifting powers to restore his past counterpart self's mutant abilities, as well as advising the past Valeria about things she has to do in order to save the future.[2]

After Nathaniel Richards battled his other counterparts in a game set by Immortus and remained as the last Reed Richards, Franklin forced him to travel back in time and help the Fantastic Four, at that time Future Foundation, to fight the alternate Reed Richards loose on Earth-616 and deal with the invasion of the Mad Celestials until he and Valeria could escape from the destruction of their reality and arrive to finish their plan. They arrived during Galactus battle against the Mad Celestials and, using his power, Franklin re-powered Galactus and destroyed the Celestials.[3]

After the reality was saved, he and Valeria joined the Future Foundation.

Described as beyond Omega

Those of Franklin Richards of Earth-616.

The Celestials have described him as being Beyond Omega Classification.[4]

He has been described by them as being an Universal Shaper,[4] and to possess reality distortion powers (or to be one).[4]

Among other things, he was able to create a room where Black Bolt was able to speak without danger out of nothing or turn off the powers of his grandfather by shutting off the responsible parts of his brain.[5]

He was also able to teleport the Mad Celestials into a gas giant, withstood direct assault from them and even killed one by himself.[4] With the help of his younger self's powers, he was even capable of reviving Galactus and turning him into his herald.[4]
