As a boy, Reed Richard's father vanished under mysterious circumstances, leaving Reed to be raised by his mother. This created a wanderlust in him.

Under as-yet-unknown circumstances, Richards lost the use of his legs and began shaving his head, mimicing the style of Charles Xavier. It is unknown what he did in his own universe, but Richards became a member of the Council, using his superhuman intellect and other abilities to solve... pretty much everything.

When the Mad Celestials of Universe 4280 attacked the Council, Richards was one of only four survivors, who made their way to Earth-616 through a mistake by Valeria Richards. He worked on their plan to instigate the War of the Four Cities.
