On a planet far from Earth, the Celestials visited and evolved the native species, much like the mutants of Earth. The beings evolved into super powered beings, some of them having outward alterations and other having interior alterations. The two groups began to segregate and the physically deformed beings became known as the Rejects, while the other, more humanoid, group became the Chosen. The Celestials, who were called "Space Gods", returned four times and judged both groups, finding them acceptable and leaving them to progress until their next appearance. The Space Gods were worshiped and considered saviors by both the Rejects and the Chosen, each group praying to the Celestials to sway the gods to their own petty purposes. After believing that the Space Gods did not hear their prayers, a third group emerged, compromised of both Rejects and Chosen, calling themselves, the Beginagains. Eventually, all groups began to become envious of each other and the whole planet began to war with each other.
The Rejects moved to the forests and woods, while the Chosen began to build huge cities. The Beginagains moved underground, so as to not be seen with either group.
The Rejects are seemingly an equivalent to the Deviants being physically randomly deformed individuals, opposed to the Chosen, who seemingly stand as an equivalent to the Eternals, being great-powered human-looking individuals.
