History:
(Fantastic Four I Annual#11 (fb) - BTS) - General Fitz-Hugh and several other Allied officials became suspicious that the Nazis were planning something big at Castle Cherbelle in France. They soon summoned the heroic Invaders for help.

(Fantastic Four I Annual#11) - General Fitz-Hugh and the other officials met with the Invaders to discuss his suspicions that the Nazis were planning something at Castle Cherbelle. When Captain America questioned the suspicions, Fitz-Hugh claimed he was positive of the plans, commenting that the Nazis would not move so many men and resources to a secluded location in occupied France if they were not planning something big. Before much more could be said, however, Earth-616's Fantastic Four appeared in the room, having traveled back in time to Earth-76611's 1942 from their modern era, and Fitz-Hugh immediately asked who they were. Captain America admitted he did not recognize the Fantastic Four and when the Thing reached for Fitz-Hugh to request some information, Fitz-Hugh called the Thing a monster and ordered Thing to take his hands off him. Namor the Sub-Mariner came to the aid of Gen. Fitz-Hugh and a fight soon broke out between the Invaders and the Fantastic Four until Mr. Fantastic and Captain America ultimately helped calm everyone down. After the Fantastic Four explained how they had seen a glimpse of the divergent Earth-76611, in which the Nazis got their hands on some time-displaced Vibranium metal, and how they had traveled into the past to prevent such an occurrence, the skeptical Gen. Fitz-Hugh refused to believe the Fantastic Four's story. A French official interrupted Fitz-Hugh to comment that the Fantastic Four's story of the Nazis acquiring Vibranium did seem to match up with the intel they had from the French Underground about the military build up near Castle Cherbelle. Captain America then offered to have the Fantastic Four accompany them against the Nazis in France, with or without the official sanction of General Fitz-Hugh.

Comments: Created by Roy Thomas, John Buscema and Sam Grainger.

    To clarify, Earth-76611 diverged from Earth-616 when a container of Vibranium was accidentally sent back in time to the World War II era. The divergence point would be the moment the Vibranium arrived in the past and Gen. Fitz-Hugh is a native of that diverged reality. Another reality, in which the Fantastic Four did not travel back in time to aid the Invaders and the Nazis used the Vibranium to construct weapons that allowed them to conquer the world, diverged from Earth-76611 shortly after Earth-76611 itself diverged from Earth-616. Hope that isn't too muddy of an explanation for you!
