- -- Herbie
Herbie the dog was born in the 44th Century and was experimented on as a puppy to be able to communicate with technology and talk coherent English. He was recruited by Kang the Conqueror to communicate with his technology for him.
For a while, Herbie didn't realize the evil he was helping perpetrate by working with Kang. This changed after a confrontation with the Fantastic Four, who Herbie only recognized from history. He and the Invisible Woman formed an instant connection, and he was inspired to leave Kang and do the right thing.
From there, he was taken in by the Fantastic Four and instantly given a home by them. He was overjoyed to be in the present with a family and working in the lab with Mister Fantastic.
