The past history of Chthon of Earth-9997 mirrors that of his Earth-616 counterpart. Chthon was not involved in any activities that recently occurred on Earth-9997, a number of the information about his true origins (at least on Earth-9997) were revealed through the visions of Kyle Richmond. It revealed by Kyle that a number of the demons and creatures believing to be Satan or the true dark lord of the underworld were really third tier mutants manipulated by the Celestials. It is entirely possible that they were all made to believe such by Mephisto himself.

Further, it was explained that many mystical realms that exist in the omniverse are alternate Earth's that have had their physical properties changed by the various lords and rulers of their realities.

These revelations certainly put some of Chthon origins into question, firstly him as a Elder God may be in question, he could be a mutated human from Earth or Other-Realm. At some point, he was manipulated into believing he was Chthon and placed in the Other-Realm which was either altered by Chthon himself or other parties to further maintain what Chthon and the people of the Other-Realm believed in.[1]

The truth behind Chthon's origins remain unrevealed at this present time.


As long as this being believes himself to be Chthon, he presumably has the same abilities as his Earth-616 counterpart.
