Jeremy Simms was a 16-year-old who died in a car crash along with his friends who were in the car. His death was hard for his parents (Martin and Lucy Simms) to take, and they divorced six months later. Lucy moved to California and had no further contact with her ex-husband.
Jeremy's father, Martin, ended up so depressed that he climbed out on a ledge to kill himself. Reed Richards (a.k.a. Mr. Fantastic) was working temporarily in a law office in the same building. Richards climbed up the building and talked Martin out of killing himself.
Martin told Reed Richards his depressing tale and why he wanted to die. Upon hearing this story, Reed thought of Martin's ex-wife and of his own wife, Susan Storm Richards.
