(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.

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.
Profile by Snood.
No known connection to:
mind-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
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.
