- I put everything I had into saving my wife, but I couldn't do that. In the end it just made things worse. I mean, look at me. But while I'm here, while I have this power, I might as well use it to the best of my ability and save everyone else.

Reed Richards began studying gamma radiation as a potential cure for his wife, Susan's cancer. However, his testing went awry and he was permanently mutated into a monstrous being known as the Hulk. Initially mindless and full of rage, Susan was able to coach Reed back to stability only for her to die soon after. Distraught with grief, Reed decides to use his newfound powers as a hero.
Reed was recruited into the Outsiders under the promise that if he returned to his dimension, his mutation would relapse and he would lose his mind once more, killing hundreds of people.
Reed and Quicksilver would both end up sacrificing their lives on the Outsiders' first mission to Earth-1010112 to end the war between Atlantis and Latveria.
