Plot by H-E-D
The Negation War is tragedy for the Posi-Verse... but for Oberon Kaine, it’s life! In the deepest, oldest reaches of the Negative Zone, where not even the Anthrosians dare venture, the Lawbringers run ghoulish prisons, filled with more with the innocent than the guilty. Only Oberon Kaine, himself an escapee from the prisons, and his Rebellion dare challenge them!
It’s been decades since this fight started, and Oberon never thought he’d see it end. But now the forces of the Lawbringers are depleted, off fighting the Bright Universe with Annihilus. The Rebellion smells a chance they never thought they’d get — the chance to bring the Negation War to a close!

Mantis was born in Vietnam, but she’s found a second home with the Priests of Pama on the planet known as Kree-Pama. Now, the planet is an ashy waste, burned by the Lawbringer known as BNFR. In the ashes of the temple where she learned her empathic magic, Mantis searches for answers. Her son Quoi, the Celestial Messiah, arrives with the Cotati to offer something else: revenge. But is that the same as justice — and in the midst of galactic calamity, does the difference even matter?

The Superflow is the space between universes. So, as you might expect, the ongoing assimilation of one into another would make waves there. Literally.
Nightmask and Dark Angel are doing their best to keep things stable, but the Superflow is still delicate from the Cosmic Fracking incident (see ULTIMATES #7-9). As the Negation pushes through the cracks, it’ll take everything they’ve got to keep all existence from being torn apart!

With the Lawbringers on the front lines of the Negation, their prisons have been left unguarded. Oberon Kaine smelled opportunity, but he may have gotten more than he bargained for!
True, his Rebellion has successfully staged prison breaks at nearly half the Lawbringer facilities, and instigated riots are the rest... but can Oberon shape the chaos of this galactic riot into a revolution?
All this, and the Rebellion finally springs their long lost benefactor from solitary confinement. None of them were prepared for the truth: a scrawny rogue Lawbringer named BLQK. Can she be trusted?

The Brain-Lords of Cymradia thought they had finally caught a break when the Dragon of the Moon abandoned its hold on their planet. (See: Sorcerers of the Stars #21)
But when a Negation incursion opens up in the middle of Cymradia’s most secure scientific facility, their hopes are quickly dashed.
Even worse, in the chaos, they’ve lost track of Specimen Nine, prized subject of the nefarious Project: Survival. (The same group that kidnapped Mantis and Moondragon in Sorcerers of the Stars #7-9!)
Marcia Reynolds was just an ordinary secretary from Nashville, Tennessee before she was abducted to Cymradia. In the experiments there, she gained the name Specimen Nine. But soon, the galaxy will know her by another name... Futura!

So, Negation’s finale didn’t have enough backstory for you, hmm?
Then you’re in luck, because here we present a tale from the dawn of time: the First Negation!
When our universe began, the last survivors of what came before were “upcycled” into the Proemial Entities. Galactus. Charon. Solusandra. Brio. Antiphon. Aegis. Tenebrous. Diableri. Phoenix. Others whose names and deeds are lost and forgotten.
All had their part to play in the game of Cosmic Consonance. Some, like Galactus, set about fulfilling their purposes with steadfast obedience to the dictates of Eternity.
But many, too many, grew dissatisfied. To have the power of gods but no agency of their own did not sit well with them.
Charon, intended steward of the Negative Zone, burned a swath through his realm, consuming worlds indescriminately, leaving the barren waste you can recognize the Negative Zone by today. Converting their life into the Force Opposite, his counterpart to the Power Cosmic, he created his army of seekers, his heralds, the Lawbringers.
Others, like Aegis and Tenebrous, followed suit. And so began the great Titanomachy of the Proemial Gods.
For most of these rogue entities, the Incubators that birthed them became their prisons. Collected upon the border of the Crunch, in time these prisons became known collectively as the Kyln.
But Charon was more difficult. He destroyed his own Incubator. It seemed as though he was destined to roam free, when Solusandra the Lifebringer sacrificed herself. To defeat Charon, she sealed herself in her own cradle, and took Charon with her.
In the chaos, the incubator, this Empyreal Prison, was lost in the wastes of the Negative Zone. And though Galactus did not realize it, the Lawbringers survived. They rallied around this Incubator, making the first of their eventual prison empire.
They could not release their god, no, but they would find a loophole. Even if it took eons.
Negative. Negation. Negated. It’s was all too much. Imbalanced. All and everything shifted toward the (-). It should be more… in between.
The In-Betweener is the embodiment of duality and balance (+/-). By his observation, the Negation Wave has tipped the scales too far… it is time to intervene!
And there is an army to back him up. Two armies, more accurately. The Regimented Forces of Order and the Confederate Horde of Chaos. These white and black clad fighting units have been cultivated separately by the In-Betweener for some time. When unleashed… which will prove more affective?
