History

Quote1.png Kid, word of advice for ya: If you happen to stumble upon a clan of goddamn ninjas prowlin' through the night to steal whatever the hell THAT is, you gotta wait for back-up. Not saying yer weak, kid, but there ain't no hero strongest alone. Quote2.png
-- The Thing

One of the most famous heroes ever, the Thing is the heart and soul of the Fantastic Four. Despite his rocky exterior and intimidating build, Benjamin Jacob Grimm is a kind man who simply wants to help others. He had embarked on solo adventures, fought some of his team's greatest threats by himself, and even became an Avenger.

Before Mighty Defenders

The Thing's history mirrors his mainstream version. The Thing pursued a dedicated relationship with Alicia Masters before the two briefly broke up. As seen in the first issue, they have resumed it as Ben tried to propose to her. Aside from that and a mention of a recent fight against Annihilus, nothing else changes. At some point, Ben was a Defender, making him one of the few non-original Defender members to still be one in this reality.
