Unlike Earth-616, Earth-98 does not operate on a Sliding Timescale, and as such the passage of time and the details of events have progressed much slower. In this reality the Modern Age of Heroes (which is identified as the birth of the Fantastic Four) occurred in the year 1961, whereas the Earth-616 universe currently[note 1] measures the Modern Age as being in existence for about fourteen years. When this reality was visited by the Thing of Earth-616, the modern age of his reality had existed for ten years, while the modern age of Earth-98 had existed for 37 years at that time. It should also be noted that while "year ten" of the modern age of Earth-616 will always be moving forward in time, the year that Ben Grimm-616 visited this reality will always be the calendar year 1998. Events on this world appear to be more or less analogous to Earth-616, despite the differences, but the timeframe moves much slower.


Zawadi is a Wakandan princess who married Franklin Richards, the son of Mister Fantastic and the Invisible Woman of the Fantastic Four. During Franklin's own tenure with the group he and Zawadi were expecting their first child. As the child was due to be born, the Thing of Earth-616 was accidentally transported to this world and, confused for his Earth-98 counterpart, met Franklin and Zawadi. Following a battle with the Frightful Four, Zawadi went into labour. Moments later she gave birth to her daughter N'Yami Susan Richards.


Zawadi is an experienced combatant, able to go toe-to-toe with the Thing.
