Environment: Earth-like

Dominant Life Form: Humans

Significant Inhabitants: The Human Torch, the Puppet Master, the Thing

History: (What If? II#18/2) - The Puppet Master tried to attack the Human Torch and the Thing using real puppets that he named Kukla and Ollie.

Comments: Created by Barry Dutter and Rodney Ramos.

I designated this reality as an alternate Earth as opposed to a divergent Earth because in this reality, the Puppet Master never used clay puppets, opting to use real hand puppets instead.

The puppet names Kukla and Ollie are a reference to the puppets from Kukla, Fran and Ollie, a children's television program that aired from 1947-1957. --Prime Eternal
