History

Rex Mundi was the first Ultra, created tens of thousands of years ago by an alien ship from the Godwheel that crashed on Earth and modified an early homo sapien to be its emissary. Mundi broke free from the ship's control and became his own man, mastering the nubotech powers it gave him.[1]

Over time, Mundi desired companionship, and used the newfound power in his system to replicate a female counterpart for himself, whom he named Regina. Regina and Rex monitored the development of humankind and civilization together for unknown years, until the rise of Ultras. The Entity on the Moon (black box to the ship that empowered Rex) was beaming energy down to the planet's surface, creating other Ultras. Rex wanted to eliminate these Ultras before they posed a threat to his world and his secret empire, but Regina thought the Ultras would be useful as pawns in their work. The two reached an impasse, and Regina left Rex to pursue her own goals.[1]

As the two worked at cross-purposes, Regina began calling herself "the Alternate" to Rex and his plots.[2]

Powers and Abilities

Powers

Living Nubotech: Being a creation of Mundi's, having an anatomy comprised of semi-sentient organic nanites, Regina boasts some of the most powerful Ultra abilities ever seen.

  • Nubotech Manipulation: Like her designer Rex, every individual cell in the Alternate is a sentient micro-machine. Capable of independent action and deed. Enabling her to move and reorganize her body either individually or in large groups.
  • Shapeshifting: Regina's most favored tactic is taking the shape and/or form of most anyone or anything she see's fit. Often acclimating not only the appearance of whomever she chooses but simulating their powers to keep up the subterfuge as well.

Notes

  • A female counterpart to Rex Mundi. "Rex Mundi" means "king of the world", and one of the names the Alternate chooses for herself, "Regina" means "queen", something that, combined with the name "Alternate" essentially sets her up as the "alternate queen", or the alternate ruler of the world to Rex Mundi. Both characters are often seen behind-the-scenes, influencing events to further their own interests.
