Earth-1999 is the native universe for the Visionary Animated Universe. Articles are to be added as they are written.



The first glimmerings of the superhuman came in World War II, when Major America, Bucky Barnes, the Inferno, Lady Dorma the Sub-Mariner, the Thunderer, Freyja of Asgard, and the Clairvoyant formed the Invaders. They fought back the Axis Powers, until a horrific accident which resulted in the death of the Inferno and Bucky. The other Invaders retired, each to their own ends- Major America, in a stealth mission where he was dropped into Antarctica, the Cliarvoyant and the Thunderer, in a natural death of old age, Lady dorma, in a savage attack by her human lover, and Freyja who returned to Asgard.
