History: (What If? I#34/6) - Reed Richards decided to allow Willie Lumpkin to join the newly-named Fantastic Five, hoping to get better postal service by allowing the postman to join the team under the pretense that his ear-wiggling would be put to good use. Lumpkin was the beginning of a slew of silly-abilitied heroes joining the superhero team, such as heroes with the power of a voracious appetite.
Comments: Created by Fred Hembeck.
This reality, while being much like Earth-616, was an alternate Earth, as this reality's Reed Richards was as dumb as 616's was smart. Since Reed's intelligence was not caused by any divergent factor, that makes this reality an alternate one.
