Originally separate domains, one similar to Reality-616 ruled by Iron Man (Tony Stark) and the other similar to Reality-1610 ruled by Nick Fury, the two became merged when the latter's Tony Stark accidentally agitated a rip in reality. Fury ruled the merged domain, but tempers flared between the duplicate inhabitants. Despite Doom's order to leave the rift alone, the two Tony Starks continued to research it to find a way to separate their domains; and Doom sent the Thors to enforce his law.
