Best friend of Reed Richards, Ben Grimm refused to allow Richards to pilot
the shuttle, Grimm, as a pilot officered to do the job himself. After Reed
ignored his pleas to protect the craft from cosmic radiation, the shuttle was
bombarded by the cosmic rays and crashed back to earth.
Upon landing, Ben, was turned into a hideous creator made of rock, and one of
the strongest creatures alive. After returning to New York, Benís mind was taken
over by the Puppet Master, in an attempt to destroy his friends. Once his mind
was restored, the Puppet Master fell out of a window, to his death. His blind
daughter, Alicia Masters, moved into an apartment in the Baxter Building and the
two developed a romance.

condition so that he and Alicia could marry.
