Preface

Unlike Earth-616, Earth-98 does not operate on a Sliding Timescale and as such the passage of time and the details of events have progressed much slower. In this reality the Modern Age of Heroes (which is identified as the birth of the Fantastic Four occurred in the year 1961. Whereas the Earth-616 universe currently[note 1] measures the Modern Age as being in existence for about fourteen years. When this reality was visited by the Thing of Earth-616, the modern age of his reality had existed for ten years, while the modern age of Earth-98 had existed for 37 years at that time. It should also be noted that while "year ten" on of the modern age of Earth-616 will always be moving forward in time, the year that Ben Grimm-616 visited this reality will always be the calendar year 1998. Events on this world appear to be more or less analogous to Earth-616, despite the differences, but the timeframe moves much slower.

Mentions

The history of Captain America on Earth-98 follows a similar course as his Earth-616 counterpart. Fighting in World War II, Rogers ended up being placed in suspended animation in the year 1944. He was later revived 20 years later by the Avengers where his history continued much like his Earth-616 counterpart but at a much slower passage of time. In the year 1995 Captain America sacrificed his life saving hundreds of people in Oklahoma City from a terrorist attack.[1]

Powers

Presumably similar to those of their Earth-616 counterpart.
