Around half a century ago, a freak accident pulled every version of one man from his universe and forced them into a bizarre prize fight from which only one of them could survive. In most cases, this would not have had lasting consequences... except that that man was Nathaniel Richards.
Deprived of a father, many Reed Richards's would become a far colder individual. They used their amazing intelligence to make the world a better place, but with far less care to become a part of the world as a social participant. And as the Reeds grew up, one by one they built bridges into the nothingness between universes and slipped away.
The Council was founded officially by three versions of Reed who had each acquired their universes' Infinity Gauntlet. Deciding that it was what reality needed, they built a hall in the space between universes, from which they could access all universes, and they began working with their counterparts to make the multiverse a better place - averting scientific disasters, terraforming whole empty planets to feed universes plagued with famine, and stopping harsh parallel versions of menaces such as Galactus and Doctor Doom.
However, the cost of the work was that each Reed had to give up his world for the sake of the multiverse. Each man left his world behind, becoming a multiversal science-soldier and being forgotten in turn by those he had called friend.
The Council met its end around the time it was reached by the one Reed who grow up with a Nathaniel - Reed Richards of Earth-616. Due to the influence of his father, Richards could not make the trade-off that the other Reeds had, and left them. This corresponded with the beginning of an epic battle between the Council and the Celestials of Earth-4280, who desired the use of their transuniversal machines to conquer all of reality. Many Reeds died.
Reed Richards had deactivated the Bridge after his interaction with the Council, but his genius daughter Valeria snuck into his lab and reactivated it from simple curiosity. When she did, four of the surviving Reeds escaped from interdimensional limbo into Earth-616, and decided to instigate a prophecy known as the War of the Four Cities, in the hopes of garnering the strange energy needed to get them home.
