Benjamin J. Grimm, code-named The Thing, was a SHIELD agent who was sent with Reed Richards, Susan Storm, Jonathan Storm, and Nick Fury himself into another dimension to stop the evil alien known as Annihilus from attacking Earth. When the team were teleported by the alien's interdimensional transport machine, they were lost from Fury and exposed to unstable particles of energy that transformed their DNA, giving them great powers. Upon their return to Earth, they become famous as the Fantastic Four. After the death of Reed, he helped Susan form the Future Foundation.
