History:
(Avengers 1,000,000 B.C.#1 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, the Earth mother Gaea mated with a "talking tree" and sired a child.

(Avengers 1,000,000 B.C.#1 - BTS) - Some time later, Gaea met with the then-current avatar of the cosmic Phoenix Force, who remarked that being a mother was not the will of the Phoenix, prompting Gaea to remark that she had sired many children with many fathers including one with a "talking tree."

Comments: Created by Jason Aaron and Kev Walker.

    Avengers 1,000,000 B.C.#1 mentions a "talking plant-beast" to joined up with Iron Fist (Fan Fei) to help defend Earth and later in the issue, Gaea mentioned having sired a child with a "talking tree." My first thought was to lump the two together as the same character but given what little evidence we have of either character, they could be two totally different characters or they could be the same. We simply don't have enough information to know for sure. If they are ever shown to be the same character, I will combine the two profiles into a single one. For now though, I am treating them as the two different characters.

    On the topic of not having much information, we really don't know the origins of the "talking tree" as to whether it was terrestrial or extraterrestrial, naturally or artificially created or mutated, what have you. Gaea did mention the "talking tree" apart from her mentioning of siring children with gods and cosmic deities, suggesting that the "talking tree" was neither of these types of beings. Also, the "talking tree" was never seen so its height, weight, eye color and hair color were impossible to determine without a visual.

    Since Gaea only nicknamed her former lover as the "talking tree," she could have been referring to several different tree-like entities such as the Cotati alien race, a manifestation or aspect of the Asgardian world tree Yggdrasil, the Finnish god Tapio, a reality-crossing Ent or even the Tree of Life, one of the "lower powers" aspects corresponding to Gaea herself. If the "talking tree" ends up being fleshed out more or a specific being, whether seen before or not, I will update and/or remove the profile to reflect the changes as needed.
