History:

(Secret Avengers#33 (fb) - BTS) - The Avengers of the Undead worshipped the Undead Celestial.

(Secret Avengers#35 (fb) - BTS) - On Earth-616, the Human Torch (Jim Hammond) learned James Braddock, Sr. was involved in the creation of the Descendants.

(Secret Avengers#35 (fb) - BTS) - Following this, Earth-616's Brian Braddock (Captain Britain) went through his father's files and found that James Braddock, Sr. had borrowed Merlyn's Orb of Necromancy to give the spark of true life to the automatons he had helped create.earth-666-sa33-tower

(Secret Avengers#33 (fb) - BTS) - To prevent Father from obtaining the Orb of Necromancy (which he might use to grant true life to more of his Descendants), Captain Britain hid it with the Avengers of the Undead on Earth-666, telling them never to release it.

(Secret Avengers#33 (fb) - BTS) - Brother Voodoo hid the Orb within Shuma-Gorath's Ego Maze with the Undead Celestial, who intended to use it to spread undeath to the ends of reality; to recover it, one had to journey into the Center Tower, where a living man could die of introspection.

(Secret Avengers#33) - Seeking to use the Orb to stop Father's use of nanotechnology to transform all life in the universe into Descendants, Captain Britain and Hawkeye-616 traveled to Earth-666 and met with its Avengers.

    Voodoo led Captain Britain and Hawkeye-616 to the threshold and opened a portal to the Undead Celestial, where they were also confronted by the rest of the Avengers of the Undead.

(Secret Avengers#34) - Despite the efforts of the Undead Celestial and the Avengers of the Undead, Hawkeye-616 nonetheless snagged the Orb with one of his arrows, and Captain Britain flew away with Hawkeye and the Orb.

    When Captain Britain opened a portal to Otherworld, Brother Voodoo, as masters of the doors of that realm, closed the portal and advised that they would spend the rest of their short lives there, until the inevitable moment when they were devoured by the undead; as the portal closed, Captain Britain and Hawkeye instead crashed through the building against which the portal had opened.earth-666-sa34-vampbar-thor

    As Captain Britain flew Hawkeye away, they were struck by a black lightning bolt from Thor, knocking them into a vampire den where a band,  the "Flak Jackets," was playing.

    The vampires there protested Thor's presence, telling him that mummies couldn't harass them there as they had permits.


    The Beast-616 (Hank McCoy) then arrived and kicked Thor back, but the portal from which he arrived collapsed before Captain Britain could verbalize its necessity.

    Captain America, the Punisher, and Wolverine then arrived; Wolverine advised they return the Orb and they could die clean...although he was perfectly happy to "do it the other way."

(Secret Avengers#35) - After Captain Britain knocked out the Punisher, Hawkeye destroyed Wolverine with a "Sunburst flare." With Hawkeye retaining the Orb of Necromancy, Captain Britian flew he and Beast to safety where they discussed the Orb's significance.

(Secret Avengers#36) - In the Avengers' meeting hall, Beast, Captain Britain, and Hawkeye-616 then entered with the Orb and offered it up in return for safe return home.

    However, as Voodoo touched the Orb, Britain energized it, transforming Brother Voodoo back to living/mortal form, after which Hawkeye encased Voodoo in a force field.

    With Voodoo's magic negated, Captain Britain reclaimed the Orb and opened a portal back home, though which the heroes departed.

(Amazing Spider-Man III#9/2 (fb) - BTS) - Man-Spider was severely injured and captured by Bora of Reality-001's Inheritors, dimension-hopping beings who were massacring and feeding on Spider-Totems throughout the multiverse.

(Amazing Spider-Man III#9/2) - Man-Spider was taken back to the Inheritors' headquarters on Loomworld where he and several other alternate reality Spiders were feasted on by the Inheritors.

Comments: Created by Rick Remender and Andy Kuhn.

    I'm told Donny Cates defined Earth-666 as the home reality of Cosmic Ghost Rider...I don't know if he doesn't know there was already a reality of that designation, or if he just thought it would be fun to place him in this reality.
    However, the origin of Cosmic Ghost Rider shows him on a straightforward alternate Earth with standard versions of heroes and villains, as opposed to being a world of monsters, demons, vampires, werewolves, etc. as this world is. It doesn't fit at all.

earth-666-mind-drinkerearth-666-sa35-mind-drinker-abovemind-drinker and mother

    Oblivious to the Punisher battling Captain Britain-616 battling in the air above them, a mother praised her son as "little snookums" and as "mommy's little mind-drinker," noting that his extrasensory nodule was growing its first psychic secretion sac.

    The tentacled infant replied, ">FLEEPORT<"

    As the Punisher fought back, their trajectory carried them towards the mother and her child.

    Captain Britain pleaded with the Punisher to let him go so they wouldn't hurt the people below, but the Punisher refused, and Captain Britain was able to alter their trajectory enough to narrowly miss them.

    Not that they noticed...

    The Flak Jackets are a punk-looking presumably vampire band that played at a bar into which Thor the Accursed knocked Captain Britain and Hawkeye-616.

    The bar's patrons were upset by Thor's presence, as they felt they were protected from mummies there.
