Nyx is one of the Olympians once worshiped as gods by the Greeks. Nyx was worshiped as the Goddess of the Night.[1]

Early years

At some point, she bore Hypnos, Oizys, and the twins Dolos and Apate.

Zeus imprisoned Nyx in such a manner that she would remain trapped until "the sun was parted from the earth," and hid the Night Shards within her soul in three secret places throughout the Universe.[3]

Modern Days

During a game between the Grandmaster and the Challenger, the Earth was removed from orbit. It was returned at the end of the challenge, but its removal ended Nyx's containment. In revenge, she set out to cause night to fall throughout the Universe, even on planets with multiple suns and bases contained within suns.[1]

She then took her revenge on the Olympus itself, bringing her children to help her kill the Olympian gods who were there, including Hermes, Artemis, Apollo, Dionysus, and Athena.[1] Finally, she murdered Zeus after retrieving information about her hidden Night Shards, but not before Zeus threatened and promised her that his son, Hercules and the "Avengers of the Wronged" would avenge him.[1]


Nyx reclaimed her Shards of Night and arrived to her final destination in Long Island.[5] Vision made it through the door entrance of Long Island to stop her from wiping out the existence.[5] During her fight with Vision, he imagined and constructed many heroes to battle Nyx.[5] She was then killed by Vision by burning her into flames, causing her to be disintegrated.[5]


  • Darkness manipulation: She can wield darkness in a physical way, or even to cause someone blindness.[3]
  • Parthenogenesis: Nyx was capable of conceiving children without a partner, seemingly sired by her strongest feelings at the moment, whose capabilities followed those circumstances.[3]
  • Teleportation[3]

Strength level

Nyx's strength was at such level that, even weakened, she could break the neck of a major god such as Zeus.[3]


She used her nails as claws and could cause the Hulk to bleed.[3]
