Eden Fesi[src]

History

Eden Fesi, alias Manifold, was an indigenous Australian living in Kata Tjuta, Australia, under the tutelage of the X-Men ally Gateway. Eden was selected as one of the many unregistered superhumans, hand picked by Nick Fury as part of his Secret Warriors. Initially, Fury attempted to recruit him to another unknown team, but Gateway refused. Hesitant at first, he agreed when Gateway gave his blessing for Quake to enroll him.[6]

Eden Fesi (Earth-616) from Secret Warriors Vol 1 6 0002

After joining the team Eden went on several successful missions with them. On a particular mission where his powers were key in the team's escape he was badly injured. The team barely made it out alive. The team disbanded, as Hellfire had betrayed them and Eden slipped into a coma.[7] Eden eventually made a full recovery.[8]

Avengers[]

Eden was recruited into the Avengers after the the conflict between Earth's Mightiest Heroes and the X-Men. Together with the other new recruits, he traveled to Mars to rescue the original team and fight Ex Nihilo.[9]

Time Runs Out[]

When the Avengers fell under S.H.I.E.L.D. authority, Manifold was one of the members who left and joined A.I.M., now under the leadership of Bobby Da Costa.[10]

The Final Incursion[]

During the final incursion, Manifold was part of the Illuminati's evacuation plan, in their attempt to have humanity survive the end of everything. When the ship carrying the individuals the Illuminati had selected for survival was destroyed, Manifold channeled his powers through a machine that would help the Illuminati find the survivors that they "needed". Manifold succeeded in summoning all those needed, but burned himself out in the process, leading to his death.[11]

A Nation Under Our Feet[]

Once the universe was destroyed,[11] it ultimately came back.[12] Manifold was restored back to life not remembering his sacrifice. He ended up in Wakanda where he assisted the Black Panther in stopping the revolts within the country by teleporting T'Challa and his Hatut Zeraze to strategic areas were the revolts were taking place.[13]

The Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda[]

Eden Fesi (Earth-616) from S.W.O.R.D

After T'Challa was contacted by the Emperor of the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda, he and Manifold went to meet him, but were instead captured and their memories were wiped.[14] Manifold was made an enforcer for the empire and lead an army of Askari to fight the rebel group known as the Maroons.[15] However, Manifold managed to free himself from the empire's control and aided T'Challa and the Maroons against the empire.[16] They eventually returned to Wakanda on Earth, but the empire had been following them and waged war with their motherland. Manifold was among the individuals to help Wakanda in their war against the intergalactic empire.[17]

S.W.O.R.D.[]

Manifold later appeared as the leader of S.W.O.R.D.'s mutant sub-team The Six. With the help of the Six, Manifold was able to transcend his limitation of only being able to use his powers in his native universe. Managing to cross over to another dimension within the multiverse, he and the Six were able to claim for S.W.O.R.D. what they were searching for: the Mysterium Tremendum.[18] Alongside S.W.O.R.D. he faced the forces of Knull[19][20], in interfering in the Snarkwar and in spying on Henry Gyrich.[21] He participated at the first Hellfire Gala, when Krakoa terraformed Mars[22] and S.W.O.R.D. presented the Mysterium and the new regent of Sol to the Galactic Council.[23] He participated in the rescue of Emperor Hulkling when the Kree/Skrull Alliance was attacked by Dormammu.[24]

X-Men Red[]

Eden was recruited for Abigail Brand's new program, X-Men Red, a group of mutants to operate on Arakko as defense for the Arakkii and managed by S.W.O.R.D. He left the team before the first mission, considering the Arakkii capable of defending themselves with a group of superheroes of their own. An additional motive to leave was not trusting Brand, who he believed was responsible for the death of Henry Gyrich.[25] He expressed his doubts to Cable and Thunderbird to convince them to disrupt Brand's power.[26] They formed a squad alongside S.W.O.R.D. member Wiz Kid and the Arakkii Weaponless Zsen and Khora of the Burning Heart to fight an ally of Brand, Orbis Stellaris, who stole a sample of Cable's Techno-Organic Virus. Manifold used the rest of Cable's virus to find Stellaris. Before fighting Stellaris, they discovered that his Progenitors brainwashed Vulcan into working for Brand.[27] The Progenitors used their powers to control Manifold and open a portal in his chest[28] but they were distracted by Cable, who saved Eden. Manifold returned the favor by teleporting the Progenitors away with the help of Lactuca the Knower. Having stopped Stellaris and Brand, Wiz-Kid became the Station Commander of S.W.O.R.D. and Manifold chose to stay under the new management.[1]

Kidnapped[]

Sometime after that, Destiny had a vision about Manifold being essential to the future of Krakoa and tasked her daughter Rogue and son-in-law Gambit to bring him to her. Manifold, who at the time was investing the disappearance of many current and former criminals, refused to come with them. The couple then offered to help him in order to keep an eye on him. Unfortunately, Manifold was kidnapped by the Power Broker's men.[29] When Rogue found the Power Broker's base, it was too late and Manifold and the other prisoners were all mind-controlled by the supervillain, through a device that kills the wearer when removed.[30] Despite being rescued by the couple, Eden's device was not removed and he was put in stasis by Destiny to prevent a future crisis.[31]

Months later, as the X-Men waged war on the anti-mutant terrorist organization Orchis, Rogue and Gambit retrieved Eden from his stasis.[32] Although originally outraged at his treatment, he would eventually accept to help them and join the X-Men, playing a key role in the war by teleporting Apocalypse's forces from Mars to Earth and teleporting S.W.O.R.D.'s orbital station through Orchis' Sentinel City, thus allowing the team to infiltrate the facility.[33]

Powers

Eden is a mutant born with the following abilities:

Eden Fesi (Earth-616) from New Avengers Vol 3 28 001

Manifold teleporting Black Widow and Spider-Woman

Space Communication: While generally believed to be an extremely powerful teleporter, Eden in fact is an universal shaper; he can directly communicate with the universe itself and ask it for that he wants. The universe then would adjust and mold in a way needed to accomplish his wish.[21] However, his powers only work in his native reality.[34][35][36]

  • Teleportation: He can ask the universe to fold itself in a way that he would be able to reach from one point to another with a single step. To him, the distance between two points doesn't matter, he only needs to know his starting and end points.[37][21] He can teleport even from one galaxy to another without problem.[38] He can bring other people with him, at least up to several hundred people simultaneously.[39]
    • Portal Creation: He can directly connect two places via portals of various size from small enough to observe that is happening on the other side[21] to big enough for a spaceship to pass through.[3] He determines what can pass through his portals and for how long they stay open.[40]
    • Remote Teleportation: He can bring things from another place to him, for example, teleport solar plasma from the Sun into his hand,[20] or bring things/other people away without teleporting himself.[41]
  • Positional Awareness: He almost always instinctively know his exact position in space.[42]
  • Space Folding: He can lock the space around other beings, even as powerful as Adam Blackveil, not allowing them to move.[43] He also can fold the space around dangerous objects, for example, solar plasma, to prevent it from harming anyone.[20]
  • Invisibility: He can bend the space around the area he occupies so light would not reach him in order to accommodate invisibility.[21]

Abilities

Expert Survivalist: He is able to survive in the harshest of environments without a problem and is able to find sustenance in those same hostile places. It also makes him a skilled hunter.

Medical Knowledge: During the Infinity event, Eden has shown that he possesses remarkable skill as a healer. He was able to nurse soldiers when no one else could, what makes it more incredible is the fact that most of the soldiers he nursed were aliens. Eden also possesses a great deal of knowledge about useful plants and herbs.

Hand-to-Hand Combatant (Advanced): Eden is a naturally good fighter in his own right. He was trained in the fighting forms of his people and can hold his own against multiple combatants. He is also adept at combining his fighting prowess with his teleportation powers.

Spearmanship: Eden's weapon of choice is a long spear which he uses with great skill. He is able to use it so well that it could be considered an extension of his body. It is not only his weapon of choice but also his hunting tool.

Weaknesses

Manifold cannot use his powers outside of his native universe.[34][35][36]

Eden needs to know his point of origin before activating his powers. If he gets lost or turned around inside a windowless structure, he needs to find a reference point, such as the sky and horizon, to re-calibrate his internal senses before teleporting.[40]

Mystical beings can disrupt his portals.[3]
