In the future former Emperor J'son became the head of the Universal Church of Truth, going by the moniker of the Patriarch.[1] Having witnesses everything killed by Thanos, they decided to stop him by creating an army of clones of Drax the Destroyer, the only person who could kill Thanos. Because their Templeships were powered by draining the will to live and their timeline was mostly dead already, they traveled into the past of Earth-616.[2]

There, the Church captured numerous beings and used their life energies to power their flagship Cathedral that was capable of incapacitating beings by forcing them to have feelings of apathy and despair. The Patriarch lured his past self's son Star-Lord and his team of Guardians of the Galaxy to his ship through a fake distress call. He then captured most of the team using the temple's apathy generators.[3]

Groot and Moondragon avoided capture and convinced a dying Rocket Raccoon and a child Magus to aid them in rescuing their team and stopping the Church. Together, they launched an attack on the Church's temple, but they were overwhelmed by the Church's army of Drax clones and a contingent of brainwashed super beings. Rocket was presumed dead after his life support suit was destroyed, but Rocket survived and rigged the temple's engines to where it would travel back to its original time period. While Rocket and his allies fled using Lockjaw's teleportation power, J'son and the Church were transported to the future where they were greeted by that time period's Thanos.[4]
