As a child, Victor loved hearing stories about his ancestors, who were the discoverers of the foreign island known as Latveria. Some knew it as the Ghost Island, inhabited by spirits, sentient parts of nature, and intelligent animals. However, others thought of it as an island where only sacrificial humans lived. But Victor swore he would one day discover the truth of Latveria.
In High School, Victor was bullied by other children. However, he himself got lucky and won the lottery. He refused to share any money with his family, and used it to work his way up the social food chain. He was eventually respected or feared by everyone in his school, including the teachers. It wasn't long until he blew all of his money, but he wouldn't tell anyone.
After graduating college, he got a professional job as the lawyer and secretary of the superhero team known as the Fantastic Four. He became good friends with Mister Fantastic, leader of the team. However, he also began to have feelings for Richards's wife, Sue. After they shared a kiss, Sue decided it was wrong, but Victor still loved her.
One day, the FF decided to assist Victor with his life goal and took him to discover Latveria's secrets. They spent two days without encountering sentient life. Eventually, they reached the heart of the island, which was a mystical chamber filled with death traps. When the reached the center of the chamber, it began to fall apart. Victor was supposedly crushed under a falling piece of debris, and, assuming he was dead, the FF evacuated the island.
