(Hulk: Future Imperfect I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Pizfiz was born on Earth-9200, a world ravaged by nuclear armageddon and ruled over by Maestro (an aged, mentally unstable Hulk). Pizfiz was raised in Dystopia, one of the few large cities where humans flock. Over time, he joined the resistance fighters led by 'Gramps' (an aged Rick Jones). Pizfiz served with them for decades until he was well past his prime.
(Hulk: Future Imperfect I#1 (fb) ) - Following Gramps' instructions, the resistance managed to repair and activate Doctor Doom's old time platform. Pizfiz was fascinated to see his own reflection in the device's crystal clear surface, but was quickly snapped to attention by Dakord. After a successful preliminary test, Janis Jones took Pizfiz on a trip through time to contact Gramps' younger self in an attempt to get help from the Hulk.
(Incredible Hulk I#415) - Pizfiz and Janis made their way to Rick Jones' apartment in Reno, Nevada. Knocking on Jones' door, they used force to enter his place. Rick Jones wasted no time and used his combat training to dropkick Pizfiz before Janis could explain the purpose of their visit.
(Hulk: Future Imperfect I#1 - BTS) - Pizfiz returned to his own time while Janis went and secured the aid of the Hulk who agreed to join her for the return trip.
(Hulk: Future Imperfect I#1) - Pizfiz spotted Janis and their ally Dakkord in the crowded market place of Dystopia. Excited to learn if their mission had been a success, he rushed up to them, loudly asking if she'd 'slid it' (brought it). Annoyed at the loud mouthed Pizfiz, Jones told him to keep a low profile lest the gravity police noticed them. As if on cue, Dakord was shot through the head by the approaching police forces. They ordered them to stand down, but the insurgents opened fire. In the ensuing firefight, Pizfiz was shot in the leg and unable to move. He told Janis to tell the others not to forget about him.
(Hulk: Future Imperfect I#1 - BTS) - Pizfiz was taken into custody by gravity police and brought to the Maestro's palace for questioning. He was handed over to the minister who put him in the mind/slide device for questioning.
(Hulk: Future Imperfect I#1) - Defiant even in the face of certain death, Pizfif refused to cooperate with the minister's interrogation. He even dared to talk back when the Maestro himself got involved and offered to reward him should he decide to cooperate. Pizfif bravely spat in the monstrous ruler's face, which almost made Maestro mad enough to kill him on the spot. Instead, he allowed the minister to use the mind/slide technique on full blast. He was to enter Pizfif's mind and forcibly manifest the past 48 hours of his life. As a result, Maestro and the minister learned about the trip to the past and encounter with Rick Jones.
(Hulk: Future Imperfect I#1 - BTS) - The strain of fighting the mind/slide device proved too much for Pizfif. Moments after his death, the Maestro punished him for spitting in his face by splattering his skull.
(Hulk: Future Imperfect I#2 - BTS) - After his death, Pizfiz's remains were scooped out of the mind/slide chair and tossed outside Dystopia where scavengers were lurking, ready to steal the clothes and other useful belongings off the dead. Pizfiz's corpse was salvaged by members of his resistance group who brought him with them for a proper burial.

Peter David loves to get creative with time travel and Pizfif's trip to the past is no exception. The voyage was first seen in a flashback in 1992's Hulk: Future Imperfect I#1, but readers of the regular Hulk book didn't actually see that visit happen until March 1994's Incredible Hulk I#415.
It's a miracle Pizfif survived as long as he did given how
obnoxiously loud and obvious he was about the missions he was on for the
