- I have traveled through all the cracks of time and space. I have faced the most worthy of heroes, and slain them with my bare hands. I thought I would come to this time period to see what it has to offer. I am not impressed.
- Dr. Doom
Reed Richards was grown from a sperm cell provided from a 24th Century scientist named Nathaniel Richards. This clone/son of Nathaniel was given the name Reed by his creators and they put him through constant tests in his childhood to test his intelligence and to see if he possessed any superhuman abilities like his "father" did during his existence.
When Reed was thirteen years old, he finally revealed something special about himself. He had already proved he possessed one of the most intelligent minds ever known to mankind. But this new revelation was different. Reed revealed his ability to manipulate gravity, and he killed all of his superiors, and escaped from his prison, which was revealed to be in Area 51. He was then marooned in Nevada.
Reed was stuck in the desert for nearly two years, constantly walking in circles. Somehow, he managed to survive. During his time of wandering, he discovered his other various powers such as self duplication or creating force fields, among other things. Eventually, he managed to exit the desert, and when he entered civilization, several people noticed him and attempted to take him to the doctor, but he attacked them, and all of his attacks resulted in death.
- During one of his travels through time, Doom appeared before George Lucas, making him think it as simply a nightmare. When he woke up, the villain he saw inspired him to create the character Darth Vader.
