(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!
