- Everything wrong in the world is our fault. Your fault to be specific. But then again, I am you. So is the Thing, as well as the various other self-clones you haven't told the world about. When everything ends, you will know, it is all your fault.
- Dr. Doom
After Reed Richards had gained super-elasticity powers by being bombarded with cosmic rays, he and Susan Rosum and Johnny Storm moved into the Baxter Building, where Reed began working on a self clone in secret. He named the clone "Victor" and planned on making him an asset to the team, as well as the whole world.
After Victor was finished, Reed had second thoughts. He could sense something wrong about the clone. Before activating his brain functions, Reed did a test and he discovered that he was dysfunctional, which would eventually cause him to betray the FF. Reed found it hard to believe, but he disposed of the inactive body in the abandoned mystic island of Latveria, which very few people, including Johnny and Sue, knew about. When Reed returned, he began work on another clone, which would be a success.
Brought to Life
Due to the strange mystic forces at play on the mysterious island of Latveria, Victor's body became the host to many of the spirits, which began fighting for control. For the first couple of months, his body was just a shell used by them to get around the island, but one of them accidentally activated Victor's brain, which caused him to fight the spirits, and he wouldn't let any of them control him anymore, and the one which was already within him cursed him, which scarred his face beyond healing. All of these events combined activated Victor's insanity much sooner than it should have arrived, as well as his memories of Reed Richards's betrayal.
