(Fantastic Four: Life Story#3 - BTS) - Comedian Bill Hicks was a guest on David Letterman's late night talk show alongside Dr. Reed Richards and Jose Santini. As Letterman started his show, he informed of the audience of the guests on that night's episode, referring Bill Hick's comedy as "bomb threat-inducing."

Comments: Adapted into comics by Mark Russell and Sean Izaakse.

    Bill Hicks was a real-life and sometimes controversial stand-up comedian and satirist. He was born December 16, 1961 and died of cancer on February 26, 1994 at age 32. He made numerous appearances on David Letterman's late night talk shows.

    This profile is on an alternate reality counterpart of the real life Bill Hicks. In my profiles of Earth-616 versions of real-life people, it is assumed that the characters' Earth-616 history mirrors much of their real world history. As such, if there were a profile of the Earth-616 Bill Hicks, I would have included much of his real world history in the profile. Being that this is a profile of an alternate Bill Hicks, however, that history may be different in many ways and even something such as eye color could be different in an alternate reality. With that in mind, I chose to have this profile cover only what was shown in his one comic "appearance" and much of the real world information will be saved for a profile on Earth-616's Bill. IF the alternate Bill's history reflects that of the real world then his real name would be William Melvin Hicks, his known relatives would include James Melvin Hicks (father), Mary Reese Hicks (mother), Lynn Hicks (sister) and Steve Hicks (brother), and his group affiliation would include the Texas Outlaw Comics.
