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 Harold "Happy" Hogan, Tony Stark's long time friend and former body guard.

The Happy Hogan on Counter-Earth was the head of Stark International public relations and would be part of the organization around the time that Tony Stark was acquitted in court in a legal battle against the city of New York.

When Tony would subsequently become Iron Man and later join the Avengers, Happy would be in charge with keeping track of Iron Man's publicity. He would also begin a short lived office romance with Stark's secretary Pepper Potts. Their romance would be interrupted by an attack on Stark by former friend Conner "Rebel" O'Reilly who was then under the control of the Hydra terrorist organization.

Happy was placed at Ziff Memorial Hospital to recover. His current fate remains unrevealed.
