Meeting with the Phoenix

Evolution stopped

A billion years ago, on a planet ruled by Demon Princelings, they had caused Evolution and Progress to stop with to a great rite in order to enslave the populations.

The Messiah and the Lights

The rite proved to be effective, until the Phoenix Messiah emerged. After her emerging, she gathered five acolytes, the Lights, banded together with loyalty. All of them were powered beings, but their origins are unknown.

Communed with the Phoenix

Together, they waged rebellion against the Lord of Stasis, and at last, the Phoenix Force came to them, and they communed, although the Demon Lords fought to prevent it.

The Phoenix Messiah

Evolution restarting

The spell was broken by the Five and One and the Phoenix Force, and the Demons were swept away.

The whole history was witnessed by the alien peace-keeping robot Unit, who intended to witness a billion years later a variant of that story by observing Hope Summers, the Mutant Messiah, without her own Lights.[2]


The Phoenix Messiah demonstrated Pyrokinesis, with the fire coming from newly formed eyes, mouth,[3] and back of her skull, and was later invested with the Phoenix Force, granting her Phoenix-related ability, such as Flight.
