When the Fantastic Four and the Avengers sacrificed their lives to destroy Onslaught, Franklin Richards, the son of the FF's Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman subconsciously created a pocket universe to save their lives. There they spent an entire year reliving living new lives "reborn" into a reality where they recently gained their abilities that vaguely mirror how they gained their powers originally.

In this new universe, Franklin created populated universe, including recreations of many of these heroes allies and foes. Among these creations was one based on Jasper Sitwell of SHIELD.

In this reality, Jasper would be a government agent of an undisclosed department who would act as a liaison for Stark International and the government. When Hydra would target the site where Stark International was building a gamma bomb for the US military, they would detonate it with Bruce Banner the bombs inventor trapped inside. The resulting explosion would cause the craft that Tony Stark and Sitwell were traveling in when coming to investigate the security breach. Both men would be seriously wounded in the crash, Stark getting shrapnel stuck in his chest. Leaving Sitwell behind, Stark would investigate the ruins of his plant and dawn a suit of Prometheum Armor to save his life. Sitwell would witness "Iron Man's" battle with the gamma spawned monster called the Hulk (in reality a mutated Banner). Their battle would take them away from the ruined plant, and leave Sitwell wondering the identities of both the Hulk and Iron Man. Sitwell would not be able to investigate this further as the government would call in the Fantastic Four to try and track down the Hulk.

Later, Sitwell would be unable to disclose any information to Stark about the gamma bomb problem and begin his own independent investigation into the effects of gamma radiation. Tapping the phone of psychiatrist Leonard Samson Sitwell would learn that Bruce Banner is really the Hulk. In attempting to locate Banner, Sitwell would have Samson taken into his custody. When Samson would refuse to co-operate with Sitwell's demands to disclose Banner's whereabouts, he would have Samson injected with gamma radiation in the hopes of creating another Hulk-like creature to use for government service. This would be Jasper's undoing as Samson would mutate into a horribly gamma spawned abomination which would savagely attack them seemingly slaying Sitwell and his cohorts.
