Default CBH: The History of the Infinityverse

Before I start this dynasty let me say a big thanks to all the render makers. Thanks to Adam for creating such a great game world to play in. Lastly, thanks to everyone who has inspired me, way too many to name, to keep plugging away at CBH and get a little bit more out of the game.

This dynasty will be a little different from the other dynasties on this board as it will be a sort of anthology series detailing the history of the CBH universe as if you were reading the comic book Tales from the Infinityverse. Secondly, this will be very visual and dialogue light and instead be a brief synopsis of each issue which will detail an important event in the CBH universe. Lastly, I will attempt to flesh out certain events, origins, and big moments in the CBH universe and as such they may differ slightly from what you or Adam actually envisioned for the CBH universe. With that said, happy reading people!

Tales from the Infinityverse #1: Battle on Ancient Earth


Urfas the Recorder

Welcome, I am Urfas the Recorder. You have been summoned to my base so you may learn all there is to know about your planet. It is my hope that this knowledge will be enough for you to prevent what is sure to be the destruction of your universe. You see, despite my vast power I am honor bound to not interfere on the Universe's behalf as I am not of this universe. You however, born of Earth's own bosom, shall be the last and greatest champion this planet has ever known. Now then...


G'Lorn

Since the dawn of time their have been heroes in the Universe, but never have so many been attracted to one place as they are pulled to Earth. The first such incident of a “super” hero saving the world from the brink of destruction occurred in 10,000 B.C. When the space faring G'Lorn, master of G'aart wrestling, came upon Earth looking to test his might. The primitive humans living on the Earth at the time proved no challenge for G'Lorn, but before he could leave the planet a new challenger appeared...the demon monster Manaconda!


Manaconda

Manaconda was a low level demon from hell, but he was worshipped by the tribe of primitive humans who were defeated by G'Lorn. Due to G'Lorn's victory the humans began to worship G'Lorn instead of Manaconda, which angered the demon greatly. The two engaged in a fight that lasted several days and nights with neither combatant able to emerge victorious. The tribe of humans who once worshipped Manaconda began chanting for G'Lorn, giving him a sense of power he never felt before. With his last ounce of strength G'Lorn was able to trap Manaconda under a pile of rubble.

G'Lorn thanked the primitive humans for their assistance and bestowed upon the leader of the tribe a mystical blade, yes the very same blade wielded by the Immortal Swordsman, as a sign of G'Lorn's protection and respect for the people of Earth. G'Lorn departed Earth, vowing to return when mankind reached a more advanced stage of evolution. Manaconda, angered over his loss vowed revenge, but despite this he was called back to hell to assist the hell lord Beliel in his battle against Beliel's demonic rivals Pruflas the Demonic and The King of Pain.

This battle, millions of years in our past, planted the seeds for the oblivion facing the planet today. But it also left the Earth with the power to prevent such a fate. Yet, the planet would suffer far more that it would gain for quite a long time as demons ruled the planet spreading fear and hate across the globe. It was not until the day the first Earth born superhero took his place in the histories that the planet was able to have some semblance of peace. I hope you return again so I might tell you the tale of that man...that godling known as Heracles!

Tales from the Infinityverse #2: The 13th Labor of Heracles Part 1


Heracles

Ah, you are awake. No doubt you have many questions, but we have little time for such distractions. We must continue your education on the history of your planet if you are ever to hope to save it from it's destiny. When we last spoke I told you the name of the planet's first super hero, but I did not tell you that he was not born a super hero. You see, Heracles was a man just like you are, but due to his great deeds he was soon treated as much more. The gods, yes they actually do exist albeit in a slightly different form than the way you have been taught, sought to prevent the return of the demonic forces they knew waited in the pits. So they tasked Heracles with 13 labors, 12 of which I am sure you are familiar with. The 13th however, was never recorded by humans nor was anyone ever supposed to know about it.


Aten

You see, an Egyptian by the name of Akhenaten became Pharaoh and he quickly established a new religious order in Egypt. Gone was the worship of the old gods, replaced by the worship of a single god named Aten. Little did the people know that Aten was actually a demonic agent of Beliel that placed Akhenaten on the throne in order to draw power away from the old gods and into Beliel. The gods of Earth knew they could not directly interfere lest the demons be allowed to walk the Earth once more, so they recruited an agent to do what needed to be done. Yes, as you already have guessed that man was indeed Heracles.

The gods contacted Heracles and gave him strength and power the likes of which would not be wielded again by mortals for centuries to come. The gods then told Heracles of the great suffering Akhenaten brought upon his people and they hoped Heracles good nature would force him to act. Luckily it worked, although you will soon learn that this same gambit would backfire on the gods mere centuries later. Heracles traveled to Egypt, the people of Greece believing he was to live on Mount Olympus, and confronted Akhenaten.

Akhenaten did not fear Heracles and he demanded the foreigner to leave lest he feel the wrath of Aten's mighty beast Apep! Heracles, slayer of many Greek monsters, feared no beast and gladly offered to slay the creature before dethroning Akhenaten and his false god. Aten released the beast Apep and in front of the amassed people of Egypt a glorious battle took place. Heracles, infused with power from the gods, fought Apep but no matter how many times he slew the beast it would not remain dead.


Apep

Soon fatigue, both mental and physical, set in as Heracles tried over and over to slay the beast. After slaying the beast for a 40th tie Heracles noticed a peculiar haze around the beast. It was almost as if someone was resurrecting Apep from a hidden location. Heracles ripped the beast apart just as fast as it could be put together desperately trying to figure out where the energy was coming from. Finally after ripping the beast into nothing more than a pile of bloody chunks he was able to determine that the energy was coming from Akhenaten himself. Heracles charged at Akhenaten but Heracles slammed upon an invisible wall protecting Akhenaten from harm. With an amused look Akhenaten soon shed his skin and became Aten himself. A great fight was about to take place, one that would determine the fate of more than just Egypt...

Very good stuff. Keep it up. I can't wait to see how the other characters fit in here. And I love how you found an early use for the shaman user pic. I've been wanting to come up with a heroic identity for him because I love his look. But I have struggled to settle on one that feels right. You may have the right idea that he should be a villain instead

Tales from the Infinityverse #3: The 13th Labor of Heracles Part 2

When I last spoke to you I was telling you about the 13th labor of Heracles. I already related the story of Apep's demise, but I have yet to finish detailing the epic confrontation between Aten and Heracles. Sit back and relax, this may take quite some time....

Aten used his power to raise the sand under Heracles feet flinging the mighty Heracles into the gathered crowd. Aten proclaimed his power over man, beast, and the very Earth itself as the crowd fell to their knees in worship. As Aten continued to declare that no power in Heaven, Hell, or Earth could stop him Heracles strode back into his presence. Heracles claimed to wield a power that no one, not even Aten, could overcome. It is then Heracles declared Humanity to be more powerful than any gods because humans invented the gods not the other way around and as such gods need humans to worship them in order to gain power but humans only need themselves!

Aten unleashed a torrent of energy rays but Heracles brushed each one aside, turning more and more of the gathered crowd away from Aten with each beam he brushed off. Soon Heracles was face to face with Aten, the so called god powerless to stop him. Heracles beat Aten to death, with each blow Aten learned what it meant to be afraid.

After his victory the crowd began to worship Heracles as the new god of Egypt, but Heracles dismissed their chants. Heracles declared that if they wish to honor him they would remove Aten and Akhenaten from the records and never tell any of their children that they existed. Heracles then claimed to be Demiurge the Spirit of the Mankind. He said that his form may change, but whenever humanity needed hi he would be there to protect it.

Just as Heracles requested Akhenaten and Aten were removed from the record books, but a few rumors of their existence persist to this day. Heracles himself traveled the Earth righting wrongs, never letting the people know who he really was or where he came from. In fact, many of the legends of the ages, legends such as Samson, Gilgamesh, and even Beowolfe were in fact Heracles.

Soon many of the other gods wished to follow in Heracles footsteps and the world was almost void of evil and suffering. However, in the lands that would be known as England a new threat to the world arose. After you rest I will tell you all about Balthor the Magus and the worlds first superhero alliance, The Knights of Avalon, that brought him down....

Tales from the Infinityverse #8: The Knights of Avalon Part 5

When we last spoke The Immortal Swordsman was nearing the site of demonic power in Portugal as Lancelot The First Knight and The Flashing Blade lay unconscious. With the Rambaldi Talisman guiding him, it was an easy task to find the stone pillar that guarded the entrance to unholy site. Assuming that HaemoGoblin was already inside and that the barrier around the pillar was his doing, The Immortal Swordsman used his mystical blade in concert with the Rambaldi Talisman to cleave the pillar in two. From deep within the bowels of the Earth came an entity known locally as El Coco, but whom you may know as the villain Grievance!


El Coco AKA Grievance

El Coco, Grievance, or Hell's Soldier if you're feeling melodramatic was assigned the task to guard the artifact within this site of power. This was a job El Coco is still trying to do today, not knowning that the artifact was destroyed a few months after his release. I digress, as this story must continue. Grievance, being a hell spawn, considered all living things to be his enemy and so when Grundel and Urlac showed up Grievance attacked them along with The Immortal Swordsman.

The battle was brutal as the two trolls tried to fend off the demon while also attacking The Immortal Swordsman who was trying to do the same. HaemoGoblin, being the sneak he was entered the pillar and went after the artifact. The inside of the pillar was a simple chamber with a shining red gem perched atop a stone leech's mouth. HaemoGoblin reached for the gem but a blast of mystical energy stopped him. It was none other than Balthor, the evil wizard used HaemoGoblin's own ambition against him and soon the wizard had the gem in hand. Before vanishing into a cloud of smoke Balthor revealed to HaemoGoblin that he was removing the spell that gave Krundell and Urlac their size and strength.

Outside the pillar The Immortal Swordsman was able to stab a distracted Grievance, pinning the hell spawn to the pillar itself. Krundell and Urlac scurring away with their king as The Immortal Swordsman tried to figure out what to do with Grievance. As luck would have it The Flashing Blade and Lancelot the First Knight showed up and together the three of them managed to toss Grievance back into his chamber before they collapsed the pillar on top of itself.

Although the three of them were still weary of one another, Lancelot persuaded The Flashing Blade and The Immortal Swordsman to accompany him back to England in order to face and stop the unknown threat Merlin sensed. Unbeknownst to the three Balthor had taken the evil Vampiric Ruby of Pael, a gem that would allow him to drain the life force and power of the very demons he worked for. The stage is almost set dear listener, but we still must discuss the truth of Merlyn Daemonchild...
