Absolute Zero/Comics

The Freedom Five stand together against the onslaught of OblivAeon and it’s Scions. They were seemingly defeated early on in the OblivAeon conflict, but they reappeared in Megaopolis to bring the fight to OblivAeon itself.

Ryan Frost thought this "hero" business was a bunch of nonsense. If he hadn't been so abysmally bored, he would have just stayed in the cryo-chamber and goofed around on the internet for the rest of his frigid life. He certainly didn't plan on staying around any longer than necessary.

But things have rarely gone how Frost thought they would. And now, Absolute Zero is one of the most resolute members of the Freedom Five. No matter how dangerous the foe or how hopeless the situation, he soldiers on, knowing that he has seen worse.

  • During Progeny and OblivAeon he's not a main focus. He's there and is a big help in the fight, he helps out Tachyon when she gets hurt for one, but more than anything he winds up being the rock that steadies the team itself as they waver while fighting these dangers from beyond. From his perspective of "everything is always bad" this is just another problem for them to face down together - you can't demoralize him and he's inspiring in his own way here.

Aeon Master/Comics

Akash'Thriya/Comics

Variant: Originally revealed during the OblivAeon Kickstarter as the $300k stretch reward.

After her most recent form was destroyed by OblivAeon, the entity calling itself Akash’Thriya knew she needed more power. She had to try something. Journeying to the Nexus of the Void, she drew power from the rift in reality, giving the void some of her essence in exchange for power.

Now, she rejoins the fight, stronger than before. But if she survives this, she will have to answer to the Void.

    • During OblivAeon, Akash'Thriya is involved in fights against various Scions (and against a lot of Aeon Men, she's really good at taking out Aeon Men apparently), including a few notable ones in Megalopolis. The heroes are losing and she realizes that she can make a difference. Like how she gained power by siphoning power from her fellow Void spirits (and other entities over the eons), she can give out power to others for "exponential returns" (this giving of power is a major character moment for her). She uses most of her energy to create a massive tree in the heart of Megalopolis, Akash'Flora, that lets off a lot of glowing spores that fall on heroes, empowering them, turning the tide of the fight.
  • The Argent Adept convinces her to return to the Nexus of the Void (no longer buried deep within the world). She is dying because of the OblivAeon fight, and she will perish for good unless she returns to the Void. She does not wish to do this, because it will most likely mean the end of her individuality and personality. Slowly however, The Argent Adept and the Naturalist help her heal at the Nexus, until the Scion Voidsoul attacks, attempting to destabilize Reality and destroy the Nexus. The Nexus, recognizing that Akash'Thriya is attempting to perform her original purpose in defending the Nexus gives her power once again, and she rises as the Spirit of the Void, successfully defending the Nexus once again.


    • She's utterly spent at this point and Argent Adept (who's never really warmed up to her) is there with her as she's dying after this act of self-sacrifice - he knows that if she goes to the Nexus of the Void it can help her. She knows that this would change her as it's always been calling her back and she's reluctant as always. AA convinces her in the end and she returns to the Nexus along with AA and Naturalist (AA is doing stuff with the sleeping Void spirits there, Naturalist is helping Akash reunite with the Nexus itself) when they're ambushed by the Scion Voidsoul, who is there to attack the Nexus as part of the effort to destabilize reality. Akash attacks it, the Nexus recognizes that she's performing her original purpose of "protecting the Nexus" and grants her power again, changing her from the form that she had created for herself into a more Void-energy, almost metallic form.
    • She returns to the general OblivAeon fight after this, in her new Void form, and is a major and important part of the fight, but spends all of her energies again in the fight. All that remained of the Akash'Thriya form and the Void energy imparted by the Nexus dissipates and/or goes back to the Nexus and is no longer a separate entity. The only trace of Akash'Whatever left is Akash'Flora in Megalopolis.

Argent Adept/Comics

    • Then there's Progeny. He arrives to try to protect the cities Progeny's attacking - he's able to hold him off single-handedly long enough for the other heroes to regroup (see "The Inevitable"), which is pretty impressive. Progeny does eventually overwhelm his shield and knocks him out (and so AA wasn't helping during that last, finally successful stand against Progeny), but he was instrumental in making the final confrontation possible in the first place.
    • AA is one of the most important heroes in both the lead-up to OblivAeon and in the actual fight. First up, he goes to the Nexus of the Void (which among other things is kind of a bridge between the Void and reality) and uses his connection to the Void to awaken some potent Void creatures to come to the heroes' aid (he's there along with Naturalist and Akash'Thriya). He also reaches into the Void and summons his instruments to call forth past Virtuosos - who even after death they are still more connected to the Void (Adam does an Obi-wan voice and they have a brief discussion about the Void and the Force - they're not the same, but there are interesting similarities).
    • In the OblivAeon event he helps the Idealist with a side-project, but since it's her story we'll get to hear about it in the Sentinels/Void Guard episode.

Benchmark/Comics

    • He's fighting Scions alongside other heroes (who have come to be allies, but not really friends because even they are annoyed by him - except Setback, Setback likes him). Specifically, he's working with Setback and Parse (the heroes who, coincidentally, have ties to RevoCorp) when some hidden subroutine in the suit's programming takes over and attacks them - leaving Randall as a passenger unable to prevent this. They're both incapacitated and just before the suit is able to execute them, Randall is able to figure out a way to prevent it - suit functions that aren't specifically overridden for these hidden programs and actions that aren't technically against orders allow him just enough freedom of action to stop it. That is, if he's pretending to "help" the suit, he can trick it into letting him disrupt things (and he's good at chess and can play the long game here). What he eventually manages to do is "accidentally" run it through some walls or "unsuccessfully" dodge some attacks from the Scions they should be dealing with to the point where the suit is broken. It's still got several operating components, but the systems aren't talking to one another to the point that they're able to work as a cohesive unit.
    • Revenant shows up - he had been monitoring the situation and was the one who triggerred the secret programming when he saw that Setback and Parse were both present. This was to be the culmination of his plot against these heroes. However, now that Randall is back in control of his (more advanced, but severely damaged) suit he's able to fight Revenant and protect the other heroes. This is the final reveal of who's behind the Revenant mask, ending his story in the Multiverse era. Benchmark goes back to the fight against OblivAeon, but it's changed his outlook on being a hero and endears him to the readers once they see that he's been duped this whole time and the bluster was his corporate "brand", not his own personality. He's not perfect and he continues to grow, even into the post-OblivAeon era.

Borr the Unstable/Comics

Bunker/Comics

Variant: Originally revealed during the OblivAeon Kickstarter as the $1 Million stretch reward.

First Appearance: Freedom Five #800

The Freedom Five stand together against the onslaught of OblivAeon and its Scions. They were seemingly defeated early on in the OblivAeon conflict, but they reappeared in Megaopolis to bring the fight to OblivAeon itself.

Lt. Tyler Vance has been pulled in multiple directions lately. The U.S. Military was revealed to be capturing and training/reprogramming super-powered individuals AND stocking items of great power. Lt. Vance's duty to his superior officers was running in direct conflict with his duty to his team. But the arrival of OblivAeon made everything much clearer.

Ultimately, the petty squabbles of those seeking to gain power cannot win over the needs of the innocent, let alone the needs of all existence. Bunker knows his duty is to protect those who cannot protect themselves, so that is what he does. After all, he's a member of the Freedom Five.

Chrono-Ranger/Comics

  • At the last moment, another door in time opens up and another time traveler, the Chronoist, offers to save him. This is, essentially, the guy who got the Chrono-Ranger gig instead of Jim Brooks in his home reality. He brings Jim along to the OblivAeon fight in Rook City, since it's vitally important for all timelines. It's interesting to note that less time (heh) passes in the life of Jim Brooks than for most other heroes in the comics - he's present for a bunch of important stuff, but he's just popping in and out for those events without living through the downtime between them.
    • The Chronoist, using his own time machine connecting him to CHE as a reference, helps repair Chrono-Ranger's to reestablish contact with CON who is glad to hear from Jim again, but also lets him know that he's already right where he needs to be given the dire nature of the situation. When OblivAeon fires the giant green beam of energy that destroys Rook City [I think this is the first visual description of that event we've gotten], Jim is right at the center of the beam. The Tactics/RPG split here is whether the heroes decide to write-off Rook City as a lost cause or to continue the fight to save what they can.
    • When the heroes who fought off OblivAeon investigate the rubble, they find this cowboy guy they've seen here and there a bunch of times. He's in rough shape, although not quite dead yet. They can see a bunch of his mechanical bits exposed and this weird glowing thing near his left shoulder (where his sheriff star/time machine was). It looks like it has a button and they press it. CON sees what's going on, but can't pull him back to the future to help save him, and so decides to download himself to Chrono-Ranger's mechanical parts across time - this is CON version 5. This brings with it a significant charge of temporal energy, which allows him to create a fairly sizeable time bubble around him which pops everything inside it back in time a few seconds, reversing a bunch of damage around it - except for Chrono-Ranger himself as the time-shifting technology has to not effect his own body for other stuff to work. More in the future section.

Dark Mind/Comics

The dark Vanessa Long that sat dormant for so long before finally seizing her opportunity came to be known as Dark Visionary. She hid her terrible actions, but the heroes finally learned the truth. The Argent Adept entered her mind through the void and banished the Dark Visionary, but that was not her end. OblivAeon reached into the void to retrieve the dark form. She gladly accepted the role of scion, making Dark Mind a new threat for the heroes.

Empyreon/Comics

The alien named Rou Dov Uko was first a conqueror and despoiler in deep space. It was only a matter of time before his ruin came to Earth. After his repeated defeat at the hands of Captain Cosmic he needed a new source of energy. OblivAeon provided that source, but at a great cost. Now, Empyreon barely holds himself together. And this new energy has to go somewhere!

Expatriette/Comics

  • OblivAeon event happens. Ambuscade shows up as Stuntman and they team up. They remember each other and he's all like "I am a hero now," and she says, "Yeah, I don't really feel that you can just say that," and he retorts that that's pretty much exactly what she did - fun little back-and-forth.
    • We get the name of a Scion: Dark Mind - shows up and fights Setback and Expatriette. He's got mind-altering powers, attacks by erasing her knowledge of Setback and Setback's emotions/compassion. This latter is bad due to him no longer acting to mitigate the collateral damage that his extreme luck causes. Dark Mind pretty much just leaves at this point.
    • Setback goes off on his own, Expatriette goes unarmed to Citizen Dawn (at this point living in a Mobile Defense Platform) and tries to guilt her into helping (more to come in next week's podcast).
    • Dark Watch (or what's left of it at this point: Expatriette, Mr. Fixer, and Harpy) back again to fight another Scion: Faultless - formerly a being of Order, but twisted by OblivAeon. Setback involved in this fight too as they've been dragging him around. They're all pretty much broken in some way: heartless Setback, Expatriette doesn't remember this person who's supposed to be really important to her, Nightmist is busy Being the Gate, Mr. Fixer is this dark and bitter character after his resurrection, and the Harpy was until fairly recently a villain and has her own issues. They manage to break Faultless free from OblivAeon's control, who then corrects the problems with them (memories, emotions, etc.).
    • K.N.Y.F.E. and Sky-Scraper show up following a raid on F.I.L.T.E.R. where they find a "giant glorious gun" and bring it to Expatriette for her to use during the OblivAeon fight.
    • Expatriette doesn't have as many "goofy side stories" as other heroes are likely to have.

Fanatic/Comics

  • During OblivAeon, La Comodora shows up with a sword for Fanatic - one from an alternate dimension with a black blade. That Fanatic had apparently allied herself with the Blood Countess - it's not a "blood magic blade", but it is tuned more into that side of things (and which probably won't be a problem later at all). We also see at some point the evil version of her (Hellion) and a good version of Apostate (Seraph) and she teams up with the latter to fight the former. Good times.

Faultless/Comics

Eons ago, there was a cosmic entity of order and perfection. There is no one left that knows what it was called, but it is now simply known as Faultless. OblivAeon corrupted this entity of order to create a mindless creature of madness and destruction! Interacting with the scion in its current state risks extermination, but can the entity be saved from itself?

Grand Warlord Voss/Comics

Haka/Comics

  • Between Vengeance and OblivAeon he's still around, the new Prime Wardens book starts up, he's in the Bloodsworn Colosseum for a while (more in the Kaargra Warfang episode - they teased a bit involving Tachyon and Tempest before, but most of the stuff that happens there really should be in her story), he's involved in the initial Progeny fight alongside the other Prime Wardens, but that's a weird fight for him since punching it doesn't seem to actually help. Being "not strong enough" for a challenge is seriously weird for him - and for the team, frankly. Argent Adept has the whole Void power mastery thing, Haka and Fanatic are both bruiser powerhouses, Tempest can control the weather and is a brilliant tactician, and Captain Cosmic who (while probably the weakest member) still harnesses cosmic energy to create things with his mind. This is not a "weak" team, but they can't stop Progeny - it's not necessarily the case that he defeats them either, they're just incapable of stopping it.
  • In OblivAeon, the writers don't play the game of keeping him held back somehow, instead choosing to show how great the stakes are by just throwing him into the heart of things right away. While the other Prime Wardens are fighting the Scion, Aeon Master, he's just tearing through waves and waves of Aeon Men, but they're functionally infinite numbers of them (compared with Omnitron drones, Proletariat clones, or Voss's gene-bound minions). It becomes clear that this strategy isn't going to work and that he's kind of being wasted in this role. This is when we start seeing heroes undertake "side quests" to try to get new resources to help in the fight (we've gotten several of these stories already). Haka helps gather up a lot of scrap for Unity to use for a big project. Then, when Nightmist starts opening all of the portals to other dimensions, he falls back on his "walking the earth" roots and ventures out into these other realities to recruit heroes to come help.

Harpy/Comics

  • During OblivAeon, she's fighting as a full-fledged member of Dark Watch. Wager Master shows up doing some "side shenanigans" at one point. She interacts with the Scion Faultless in some interesting ways as it has some parallels to the Celestial Tribunal (Faultless is more concerned with "purity"). More on the Scion and general OblivAeon topics later, though.

Infinitor/Comics

Variant: Originally received in the final Over-sized Villain Card pack

As the man who was once Nigel Lowsley fought both the echoes of madness in his own head and the heroes of Earth, a sliver of his former self fought to regain control. The small, beaten-down part recognized the chaos in his actions, the destruction in his future, and the face of his brother. And that face gave him strength.

After Infinitor's defeat at the hand of the Prime Wardens, Hugh Lowsley - aka Captain Cosmic - was able to get through to his brother, helping him fight back against the whispers of OblivAeon.

Now Infinitor fights against his own manifestations of madness. He hopes to turn back the tide of insanity, and the heroes must help him before his power takes over and dooms them all!

K.N.Y.F.E./Comics

  • She returns to Megalopolis to tell the Freedom Five about Progeny and what she knows from those other timelines (her intel allows a lot of people to get evacuated ahead of time and saved a lot of lives).
    • The Progeny fight is one of the darkest, most grueling fights in the comics, but then at the end his head detaches and flies off into space. Goofy or cool? You decide! Also a call for fan-art showing this to help decide
    • She wants to pursue it into space immediately since she knows that it's bad news and this is a monster fight, her specialty. The heroes want to stay behind to help take care of the damage to Megalopolis, Rook City, etc. She goes to a F.I.L.T.E.R. installation she still knows about on her own and steals a spaceship to pursue Progeny. This goes into another limited series following her exploits in space: Headhunter.
    • She never does catch up to the head, but does stop a bunch of cosmic threats/space monsters before they can get to Earth. She acquires a new set of armor/gear, a new haircut, and a jetpack. A bunch of these are just fun monster-smashing stories, but a lot of groundwork/foreshadowing of OblivAeon happens out here too. Another running thread through all of this, however, is her having to dodge F.I.L.T.E.R. agents sent after her, and in particular her replacement Sergeant Steel (the other Agents in his deck are her old team). This does eventually result in a major showdown between them, which she loses. She's captured and taken back to F.I.L.T.E.R. as a prisoner (see her Rogue Agent incap art for the containment tank that she's put in and her alt-art RA incap for Sgt. Steel dragging her unconscious body).
    • That brings us to OblivAeon - Sky-Scraper and K.N.Y.F.E. had encountered each other previously (K.N.Y.F.E. had been involved in the Bloodsworn Colosseum event - see the "Reckless" title card). At one point, Sky-Scraper breaks into a F.I.L.T.E.R. base and finds the tank Paige is in and breaks her out (stealing a big fancy gun on the way out - the Infinity Cannon - this card was drawn on-stream a while back and they hint that these events are "somewhat playable" in OblivAeon which I take to mean that they're part of the Mission deck). After that she's part of the main fight against OblivAeon and the Scions (see the Aeon Men in her deck, for example). Something is mentioned about her "run in" with the cult of Nixious the Chosen while she was out in space (and Nixious is the "only one left" now).
    • While all this is going on, she overhears some chatter on her earpiece that are coded, but she is able to understand it innately. This is coming from the Wagner Mars Base, so she extricates herself from the general fight and heads there to find that a big chunk of it is serving as a staging ground for a massive assault by a lot of other K.N.Y.F.E.s from other realities (around 30 of them - these are ones who were from reality where she had "drunk the F.I.L.T.E.R. Kool-aid and had been picked by OblivAeon for this strike team). She can't let this happen, and so fights them all - eventually activating the self-destruct sequence and blowing up this portion of the base.

Legacy/Comics

Variant: Originally revealed during the OblivAeon Kickstarter as the $1 Million stretch reward.

First Appearance : Freedom Five #800

The Freedom Five stand together against the onslaught of OblivAeon and it’s Scions. They were seemingly defeated early on in the OblivAeon conflict, but they reappeared in Megaopolis to bring the fight to OblivAeon itself.

As team leader, Paul Parsons has seen his team go through a lot. They’ve grown, become closer, seen the worst of time and the worst of space, and somehow survived it all.

Legacy is proud of the Freedom Five, and for what they bring to America, the rest of the world, and the Multiverse.

Lifeline/Comics

  • OblivAeon happens. Early on, Lifeline, Tempest, and Visionary are fighting in the Maerynian Refuge (the island where Tempest's people live on Earth) against Empyreon (pronunciation! it's not Em-Pyre-on, it's more like "imperial" only with the -on instead of -al) - a minor "energy dude" villain from Vengeance, and recurring Captain Cosmic enemy, now a Scion of OblivAeon with a significant power boost. Empyreon (who will get more explanation later) is basically a hollow shell full of energy and during this fight he's just blasting Lifeline with it. Lifeline can absorb it, however, and thinks he can take whatever can be thrown at him to win on his own. He's on track to be overloaded, though, and Tempest and Visionary try to get him to work with them. He ignores them and is about to die when Tempest (being shielded by Visionary) interposes himself to take the energy blast instead and the two of them manage to beat Empyreon. They try to turn this into a "teachable moment" about teamwork.
    • Later, Jansa contacts Lifeline to inform him that OblivAeon is actually present there on Earth and warns him that she's not convinced that anything can be done to stop him. She's taking the Enclave with her into a pocket dimension outside of reality that she's set up in the hopes that they can ride things out there. She wants him to come with, but he refuses [the "conversation" at around 30:55 is pretty hilarious - especially Adam's Lifeline voice].
    • He heads to Fort Adamant, which is under siege by Aeon Master and the Aeon Men (who are made of the energy of OblivAeon himself - they're the manifestation of his own essence that he can commit to perform an action). Lifeline shows up to help the heroes, including the Void Guard, already there and starts absorbing the energy of the Aeon Men, which he can do easily but only one at a time. He meets up with the VG and talks about needing to use teamwork (which they're already well aware of, but are glad that he's finally come around). The plan is to get to Aeon Master to pull the same absorbing trick, which might kill him, but with teamwork it just might work. They manage to pull it off and Dr. Medico is able to stabilize Lifeline so he doesn't explode or anything after taking in that much energy. Once Aeon Master is taken care of, the Aeon Men go down too. Woo! Teamwork!
    • Still not giving us the full story with OblivAeon himself until we get to that specific episode (although, like in the ARG, they call out Ra as the start of the actual fight with him directly), but will continue with hints as we talk about heroes directly involved.
    • In the second main phase of the fight with OblivAeon himself (where he's this impossibly tall giant of an enemy), Lifeline manages to do some massive amounts of damage to him due to the power boost he had from absorbing Aeon Master and cracks the form of OblivAeon. This also causes a backlash of energy, though, which takes Lifeline out of the fight. That being said, being part of 2 Scion fights and landing a big hit on the Big Bad himself is nothing to sneeze at.

Luminary/Comics

Alias: Ivan Grigori Ramonat
Height: 5’11”
Weight: 180 lbs
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Brown
Birthplace: Mordengrad, Lithuania
Power source: Genius, Military Technology, genetic Experimentation
Group Affiliation: The Vengeful Five (former)
Occupation: Fusion-geneticist, Astrophysicist, microbiologist, mono-industrialist, former leader of the vengeful five
First Appearance: Justice Comics #728

Ivan Grigori Ramonat is more commonly known as the villainous mad scientist Baron Blade. He has faced the many heroes of the Multiverse in countless conflicts, each time with a new Doomsday plot that is as dangerous to the Baron as those around him.

However, with OblivAeon’s assault on this reality, the mad Baron must put aside his long-standing enmity with the heroes, especially the Parsons family.

Baron Blade has learned much from his conflicts with the heroes, and his inventions have never been better! As Luminary, he stands alongside many powerful heroes and shows them the true might of his brilliance!

  • That's pretty much it for "Baron Blade's" plot in the SotM card game, but Ivan comes back during OblivAeon with the reaction of "You don't get to kill Legacy; only I get to kill Legacy," although that's "probably not his primary motivation.

Mr. Fixer/Comics

  • His anger after being revived was calmed after the Dark Watch team was able to defeat the Scion Faultless

Naturalist/Comics

  • His main deal during the OblivAeon events proper involves the general magical weirdness going on at the time - he only has specific animal forms tied to specific events and he gets another one here: a giant vulture. This becomes very important as a means to get from battlefield to battlefield as OblivAeon moves. He's still part of the main fights, but as usual for him, he's still kind of a side character involved in the protection of the environment rather than your standard "fighting" contribution of most heroes.

Nightmist/Comics

  • Progeny event: fights the Prime Wardens, Dark Watch, Freedom Five. Destroys a large chunk of Rook City in the process. During the Dark Watch fight, they're joined by the Scholar but lose big. Last-ditch effort to summon all of her magical power to form a barrier, which is not able to even slow him down. She's exhausted after this and fades into mist entirely, unable to reform her solid form for the rest of the battles.
    • Shortly after, the Matriarch is having a breakdown and she helps her with control. This process of training is what brings her around to being the hero The Harpy (upcoming episode for more) in the run-up to OblivAeon.
    • Nightmist, as her effort to help fight OblivAeon, tries to open portals to all different realities to bring in more heroes. Harpy is involved as her magical apprentice. She draws upon a big source of power she finds to do this and opens all of these gates ("Be the Gate"), but tapping into this power in this way, she's no longer able to manifest physically. In this way she has an outsize effect on the OblivAeon events while simultaneously not being able to participate personally. That's the end of her story.

Nixious the Chosen/Comics

OblivAeon(Villain)/Comics

Oblivaeonface.png
Aliases: None
Height: Varies
Weight: Varies
Hair Color: None
Eye Color: Usually Purple, varies
Birthplace: The Destruction of Preservation and Entropy
Power Source: The Cosmos, The Shattering of the Timelines
Group Affliation: None
Occupation: Singular Entity
First Appearance: Cosmic Tales Vol. 2, #43

The Heroes or Earth and beyond have fought against the effect of an unknown cosmic power for a long time, and each time they managed to prevail. However, other realities and timelines have not been so fortunate. The goal of this cosmic entity’s encroachment upon the Multiverse has the collapse of all realities and timelines into a singularity which will self-implode leaving naught but OblivAeon, the true heir to nothingness.

OblivAeon itself has manifested on Earth in this timeline to put an end to the pitiful resistance. If it succeeds, everything will be destroyed. However, if the heroes are able to stop OblivAeon, the cracks which run through all realities will be repaired as the cosmic power that created them is destroyed, effectively cutting the timelines and realities off from each other.

One way or another the Multiverse ends here.

Omnitron-X/Comics

Omnitron-U Foil Front.jpg

Variant: Originally revealed during the OblivAeon Kickstarter as the $40k stretch reward.

See Omnitron-U's reveal during the ARG Event in This Comic

After Omnitron-X self-destructed to destroy an incarnation of it former self, Unity rebuilt the robot, hoping to revive her fallen robot friend.

Omnitron-U preserves much of the same memory and personality of Omnitron-X, but it does have some missing information. It is thankful to Unity, though, and is eager to join the fight against OblivAeon.

Long after the self-destruction of Omnitron-X to defeat its progenitor, Unity set about rebuilding her lost friend and ally. Her teammates did not share her sense of optimism, and some even harbored significant concerns about reviving the ultimate evolution of one of their greatest foes. Unity’s supervisor and boss - Dr. Meredith Stinson - was particularly skeptical that her protege’s endeavor was even worthwhile. However, with the remnants of the Omnitron-X chassis and a collection of gadgets and devices plundered from the Omnitron-IV structure, the young technopath was confident that she could rebuild the form and recover the mind of the robot she once called friend.

  • Unity gathers up the remains of X and wants to rebuild. The rest of the Freedom Five are starting to deal with the precursor events to OblivAeon and Tachyon want her to just help with that as it's "more important". This is the first time that there's been real conflict between the two of them and Unity really lets Tachyon have it before rebuilding the chassis in only the way that Unity can (pink bits and whatnot). When it's powered up it's just another of her bots. She keeps Omnibot around, but keeps *trying* to correct how it behaves to be her friend and not just a facsimile. This lasts for quite a while and is really a tough time for her - finally deciding that she needs to stop deluding herself. She takes it to the ruins of the Omnitron IV factory for "burial".
    • Unbeknownst to Unity, the rest of the heroes, and comics readers, the Omnitron IV battle never actually ended. In a deep software layer, the Omnitron IV and X softwares had continued to fight. The return of a compatible chassis to the area, and one that X recognizes as having Unity's signature present, allows X to latch onto it. This edge allows X to finally win out over IV. Oh, and it also lets him return as Omnitron U. Cue the tearful reunion between Unity and her robot friend, followed closely by the first appearance of Chokepoint as she bursts through the wall.

Parse/Comics

Parse Fugue State Foil Front.jpg

Variant: Originally revealed during the OblivAeon Kickstarter as the $50k stretch reward.

  • First Appearance: Freedom Five Annual #30

When OblivAeon first approached Earth, a monitoring satellite caught readings of the cosmic being’s ambient radiation. That satellite was being monitored by the hero known as Parse, and encountering the same code that originally “reprogrammed” her mental pathways sent her into a nigh-catatonic state.

Parse had not been seen for much of the early conflict with OblivAeon, but when she did appear, she was not quite the same person.

She no longer carried a bow; instead, she threw her arrows with impeccable accuracy at humanly impossible speeds. Fugue State Parse took no time to explain to her fellow heroes, instead taking the fight to OblivAeon, as she knew the true desperation of their situation.

Progeny/Comics

After the defeat of Progeny, OblivAeon planted the spark that was the origin of the first scion in a new planet. OblivAeon's power fed that spark, and a new scion grew, far faster than the original. When OblivAeon ripped the newly reformed scion from the heart of the planet, shattering the world in the process, Progeny was ready to be unleashed on heroes of Earth [sic].

Ra/Comics

Variant: Originally received from the OblivAeon kickstarter

See Ra: Setting Sun's introduction in the ARG Event

After trading his spirit for another chance as a defender of the physical realm, Ra returned as the Horus of Two Horizons. He knew his time walking the earth was now limited, but he could not bear to watch the destruction of all he claimed as under his protection.

Now, OblivAeon has come, and once again, Ra must put everything on the line.

Ra travelled to the Tomb of Anubis and to the place where the Ennead had begun to reassemble. In each place, he convened with his fellow deities,, sometimes with words, and sometimes with fire. Ra called his foes to battle, and together, they will make the first successful assault on OblivAeon. He may pay the ultimate price for his actions, but the heat of his flame will never be extinguished.


    • Once OblivAeon himself shows up on Earth, Ra is there - he's amassed a force consisting of Anubis and the Ennead and they form the first and largest single strike against OblivAeon, cracking his shield. Prior to that, nothing the heroes had done had affected him at all. Unfortunately, the counter-strike against them instantly kills everybody but Ra, who gets out a few more good lines (including words to Fanatic) before dying, as see in the End of Days ARG entry

Sanction/Comics

After the The Celestial Tribunal was defeated by its own logic at the hands of the heroes of Earth, it traveled deep space [sic], seeking to serve itself judgement. OblivAeon found it there and reshaped it as a weapon, both judge and executioner. Now the Tribunal is unleashed on Earth once again, as the scion Sanction!

Sky-Scraper/Comics

Variant: Originally revealed during the OblivAeon Kickstarter as the $70k stretch reward.

First Appearance: Freedom Five #795

As OblivAeon approached Earth to begin the assault against the entire Multiverse, the villain known as Baron Blade approached the Thorathian hero Sky-Scraper. He had no interest in fighting her - in fact, he preferred to be called Luminary now, as he was fighting as a hero in this Cosmic Conflict. However, in Portja Kir-Pro, he saw potential for great growth.

Sky-Scraper had always used her alien tech to her benefit in fights, but now, Luminary was suggesting an entirely new set of technological upgrades. Not to Portja’s gear, but to her physical form. Her innate ability to change her size from a few inches tall to taller than a House was quite impressive, but why stop there? The Thorathian readily agreed to do what was necessary in the face of this new foe.

With the aid of Luminary’s inventions, Portja Kir-Pro now can reach staggering heights over several stories tall, and possibly more impressive, can also shrink to such a miniscule size that she becomes invisible to the naked eye. Surely, there are no adverse lasting affects to such experimentation!

Stuntman/Comics

Stuntman Action Foil Front.jpg

Ansel G. Moreau has always been more than happy to take whatever jobs the highest bidder will offer, all the while looking for the greatest challenge of his illustrious career. After being bested by the heroes several times, he was ready to rid himself of his combat gear and return to his roots with a life of performing stunts in motion pictures. Then, OblivAeon attacked.

Now Stuntman fights alongside the heroes of the Multiverse in order to save all reality from complete destruction. Plus, if they prevail, then Ansel would finally have bested an adequate challenge.


Variant: Originally revealed during the OblivAeon Kickstarter as the $250k stretch reward.

In an alternate Timeline … Ansel G. Moreau never let his scars stop his career. He just went on being the best action hero the world had ever seen on the screen. So when all of reality was threatened and he had a chance to fight against that threat, Ansel knew it was time to show off. After all, he did all his own stunts.

Stuntman. Coming to a theater near you soon, provided the Multiverse doesn’t collapse first.

Tachyon/Comics

Freedomfivetachyon.png


Variant: Originally revealed during the OblivAeon Kickstarter as the $1 Million stretch reward.

First Appearance : Freedom Five #800

The Freedom Five stand together against the onslaught of OblivAeon and it’s Scions. They were seemingly defeated early on in the OblivAeon conflict, but they reappeared in Megaopolis to bring the fight to OblivAeon itself.

When Dr. Meredith Stinson originally joined the Freedom Four, she did so to help fund research at her lab. She was initially much more interested in science and research. She would not have hypothesized that time with a team of heroes would change her as much as it did.

Now, Tachyon is even more well known for her heroism than she is for her brilliant mind. No matter - she still gets plenty of time in the lab, and her role with the Freedom Five has given her unique opportunities to study all manner of seemingly impossible phenomena throughout the Multiverse.

  • Next is the Progeny fight. The guys talk about how Tachyon's character doesn't really have any negatives - she's faster (mentally and physically) than everyone, smart scientist type, etc. but it's not like her powers had a weakness/drawback. Progeny makes her push herself to her limits, which she's never really had to do before, and still doesn't manage to do anything to it. She collapses in exhaustion in front of it, leaving herself wide open to a strike from it. This attack (knocks her a good distance, hitting a tree at the end) winds up breaking a lot of bones - it's the worst injury she's received. She recovers over time (annoying for a speedster who can't move) - but she's not 100% afterwards, she could literally shake herself to pieces. She develops a new speed suit for herself to help control this, but she's not as fast or as durable as she had been. She's apparently the one to finally defeat Scion!Progeny, though, so she's got that going for her (we're apparently eventually getting a Scion episode prior to the main OblivAeon episode).

The Ennead/Comics

    • The Ennead start to congregate again, meeting up back at the Shrine of the Ennead in Egypt. So, what's the plan now? Set tells them about what he learned in the Block, which includes the end of all realities/multiverse stuff. This is right around the time that Ra and Anubis show up to recruit them for the whole OblivAeon thing that's going down. There's a big, knock-down drag-out fight between them (because nemeses), but Set understands that this is the same stuff that he's been talking about. Eventually Ra manifests the full extent of his power in his Setting Sun aspect, Anubis recognizes this as the real deal "We need to do this thing" moment, and the others are overawed by this and now everybody's on board. They go to fight OblivAeon and they all die as discussed previously.

Unity/Comics

  • Unity gathers up the remains of Omnitron-X and wants to rebuild. The rest of the Freedom Five are starting to deal with the precursor events to OblivAeon and Tachyon want her to just help with that as it's "more important". This is the first time that there's been real conflict between the two of them and Unity really lets Tachyon have it before rebuilding the chassis in only the way that Unity can (pink bits and whatnot). When it's powered up it's just another of her bots. She keeps Omnibot around, but keeps *trying* to correct how it behaves to be her friend and not just a facsimile. This lasts for quite a while and is really a tough time for her - finally deciding that she needs to stop deluding herself. She takes it to the ruins of the Omnitron IV factory for "burial".
    • Unbeknownst to Unity, the rest of the heroes, and comics readers, the Omnitron IV battle never actually ended. In a deep software layer, the Omnitron IV and X softwares had continued to fight. The return of a compatible chassis to the area, and one that X recognizes as having Unity's signature present, allows X to latch onto it. This edge allows X to finally win out over IV. Oh, and it also lets him return as Omnitron U. Cue the tearful reunion between Unity and her robot friend, followed closely by the first appearance of Chokepoint as she bursts through the wall.

Visionary/Comics

  • OblivAeon grabs Dark Visionary out in the Void and offers her a job. She's powered up, given a form to work with, and is now the Scion Dark Mind - just really obviously Dark Visionary at her worst.

Voidsoul/Comics

OblivAeon found and empowered a vast entity that used to be a hungering force as old as time itself. It no longer needs to constantly seek power. As a scion of OblivAeon, it has more power than even it needs. Instead, the entity now known as Voidsoul hungers for corruption, fear, and distrust.

Wraith/Comics

Freedomfivewraith.png

Variant: Originally revealed during the OblivAeon Kickstarter as the $1 Million stretch reward.

First Appearance : Freedom Five #800

The Freedom Five stand together against the onslaught of OblivAeon and it’s Scions. They were seemingly defeated early on in the OblivAeon conflict, but they reappeared in Megaopolis to bring the fight to OblivAeon itself.

Maia Montgomery is overworked and overpaid. That second part should be some small comfort, but she has most of her excess funds funneled to the Freedom Five in various convoluted ways. Even still, once in a while, she’ll use that money to come up with a new outfit and some exciting new gadgets.

As her time with the Freedom Five has taken her out of the shadows and into public light as a hero, she’s upgraded her look and kit many times. What’s the point of being The Wraith if you can’t look good doing it? While still maintaining a secret identity, that is.
