Ex Nihilo

  • Affably Evil
  • Brother-Sister Team: With Abyss
  • Evilutionary Biologist: Of the cosmic type, he and his sister Abyss have been traveling from world to world evolving species that they deemed worthy of evolution. But he's not evil, per se. Just misguided. Once Captain Universe tells him to stop destroying worlds, he agrees.
  • Eye Beams: Fires one from the third eye on his forehead.
  • Heel-Face Turn:
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Alongside Abyss and the rest of the Ex Nihilii, turning a Beyonder into a tree.

  • Horned Humanoid: Sports two large uneven horns.

  • Meaningful Name
  • Power Up Full Color Change: Changes from gold to black when using his powers offensively or enraged.
  • Third Eye
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Aleph, his father-figures, exists to destroy planets that the Builders no longer consider worthy. Ex Nihilo's attempt to terraform Earth was a last ditch effort to avoid doing this.


Nightmask (Adam)

  • Artificial Human: He was created on Mars by Ex Nihilo to be the new Adam to the new race of humans that would come to inherit the earth.
  • Harbinger of Impending Doom: After his birth he tries to warn everyone of the approaching White Event, unfortunately for him no one could understand a single word that he was saying.
  • Merlin Sickness: As of the eight month time jump he's aging in reverse, looking more like a teenager than the full grown adult he was when he was born on Mars. This is because he's part of a universal system that's broken, meaning he de-ages every time he uses his powers. It eventually kills him.
  • Power Tattoo: The glowing crescent moon glyph on his forehead.
  • Really Was Born Yesterday: A fact which gets lampshaded on occasion.
  • Those Two Guys: Ends up in this dynamic with Star Brand once they meet.

  • Death by Origin Story: Inadvertently caused the deaths of everyone in his college when he received the Star Brand.
  • Flying Brick: The Star Brand effectively turns him into one of these, though one powerful enough to defend an entire planet.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: His early use of the Star Brand resulted in a lot of trouble.
  • Legacy Character: Kinda-sorta. The Star Brand's been around since The New Universe and caused a lot of trouble when it showed up in the MU proper 15+ years ago.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: The Star Brand is one of the most powerful weapons in existence, and the White Events are designed to confer these powers on beings who are properly suited to use that power. This White Event went wrong, but Kevin seems to be doing fine with the power he's got. Usually.
  • Power Tattoo: The aforementioned Star Brand.
  • Power Up Full Color Change: When he interfaces with the Earth as a last-ditch move, the color of his uniform (which was created by his powers) permanently changes from red to blue.
  • Super Loser: He originally was an adorkable, socially awkward, scrawy dweeb that everyone mostly ignored. After he gets almost unlimited power he's still pretty much an adorkable, socially awkward, scrawy dweeb that everyone mostly ignores.
  • Superpower Lottery: Like you wouldn't believe.
  • Super Senses: After a time, the Star Brand begins to give him these. He can see atoms merging.
  • Super Strength: Strong enough to punch the Hulk into orbit, and a blow from Mjolnir doesn't even phase him. And that's just when he starts off.
  • Taking You with Me: To a Beyonder. Albeit not willingly.


  • Cain and Abel: Her relationship with Dimitrios could be thought of as such, both were born from the virus that Hank Pym created to destroy Ultron.

  • My Future Self and Me: Has met two future versions of herself that helped her get past the mental blocks placed on her by Dimitrios.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Compared to most of the other A.I. beings in the diamond Alexis is ancient, being one of the original first six A.I. that evolved from the diamond.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot
  • Seers: Seems to have some type of precognitive ability.
  • Super Strength: Shown lifting a piece of a giant sentinel overhead with one arm.
  • Tangled Family Tree: She's technically one of Pym's artificial grandchildren, since he was the creator of the virus that spawned the diamond and her and the other five original AI. This also makes her and Dimitrios 'cousins' to Vision, Jocasta, and Victor.

Blue Marvel (Adam Brashear)

  • Antagonistic Offspring: His second son is pissed at him, blaming him for what happened to his brother.
  • Antimatter: His powers were the result of an accident when he was working on a negative reactor which would harness anti-matter by creating a bridge between the negative zone and the positive matter universe.

Power Man (Victor Alvarez)

Ronin (Eric Brooks)

  • Half-Human Hybrid
  • Healing Factor: Heals from being disembowled. He is fine a few pages later.
  • Living MacGuffin: Is this to the deathwalkers, as they required a hybrid to sacrifice in order to complete their spell.
  • Second Super-Identity: Because of unknown circumstances he has to hide his true identity. First appearing to help Luke, Spider-Man, and Monica as the Spider-Hero, and later adopting the Ronin identity.
    • Turns out it was because he needed a costume to hide his identity. Otherwise the Deathwalkers would find out he was in the area and would catch onto him.


  • Dark Is Not Evil: Though he's a master of the dark arts, Kaluu has never been overtly evil but more neutral.
  • Jerk Ass
  • Really 700 Years Old: Was a student of the mystic arts alongside the ancient one, around five hundred years ago.
