Earth-TRN566 was a reality that existed in the Sixth Infinity, prior to the Seventh Cosmos of the Multiverse.

Many evolved cultures existed, including Earth, the Shi'ar Empire, Kree, Skrulls, and Badoon, where life occurred in similar fashion to Earth-616 and Earth-92131.


This Earth's history also has some similarities to Earth-616 and Earth-92131. On Earth, Charles Xavier founded the X-Men and the Underground,[1] mutants fighting for a world that feared and hated them,[2] opposing the Sentinels, Magneto,[3] or the Friends of Humanity[1] among others. Dr. Bruce Banner was turned into the Hulk by a Gamma Bomb while trying to save Rick Jones,[3] and Spider-Man was a hero in New York City.[4]


On Taa there existed a luxuriant civilization of sciences and arts.[5]

The Brothers' creation

At some point, the Living Tribunal, along with the Spectre, created The Brothers,[5] guardians of the Marvel and DC Megaverses.[6]

M'Kraan Crystal tampered with by Demons

Around that time, affected by the manipulation of D'Spayre and of his master the Dweller-in-Darkness the M'kraan Crystal started enlarging, reaching the level it could engulf all reality.[7] Eventually, the Nexus' tampering caused the primal matter of the universe to alter, unleashing plagues upon the inhabited worlds.[5]

Reaction on Taa

On the world of Taa, struck by the decimation of their people, Galen and his colleagues decided to face the end of the multiverse by travelling to the Cosmic Egg.[5]

Shi'ar and X-Men intervention

The Shi'ar and X-Men united their efforts, sending the Phoenix Force, guardian of the Crystal, to halt his destruction.[5]

Combining with the entire lifeforce of the universe, the Phoenix was able to purge the crystal of its impurity, only for it to quickly explode, extinguishing all life, yet united into Xavier's dream. At that very moment, the Taa-an ship arrived into the Cosmic Egg, with only Galan as survivor, greeted by the Eternity, the sentience of the universe, who announced him his destiny as Galactus.[5]

The Dweller's plan failed, with all life gone in peace and without fear of their end, and the Dweller, as the last entity to despair, was fed upon by D'Spayre,[5] although he was seemingly eventually able to escape to the subsequent multiverse.[8]


The omnipotent Living Tribunal, still holding in his hand the Brothers, was part of the new Multiverse.[9]




  • Curiously, while The Adventures of the X-Men #12 suggests that Galactus did not exist until after Earth-TRN566's destruction, a superhero theme park in Spider-Man Adventures #14, the first story not based on an episode of the Spider-Man cartoon, depicts a food stand called "Galactus Goodies," designed after Galactus' helmet.
