*They were the Atlanteans, a peaceful civilization of artists and philosophers who used their phenomenal mental and physical skills to build an island utopia. They had but one responsibility: to guide and shepherd Earth's newborn race of homo sapiens towards a grand and glorious destiny. But when a mysterious cataclysm plunged Atlantis and its people beneath the waves, six - and only six - were awakened by a nameless stranger one thousand centuries later to find their utopia forgotten and in ruins, their brothers and sisters caught in an unshakable slumber... and the human race gone, having vanished centuries ago in the Transition, a passage to a higher plane of existence.
Both the legendary warrior Aristophanes and the alien known as Thraxis battled the most recent Negation invasion to a standstill. Determined to seize total victory over Atlantis' enemies, Aristophanes pursued the invaders through their dimensional portal and into the Negation Universe. There he defeated Negation hordes and rescued Galvan, who had been abducted earlier. Both Atlanteans were sent back to their own universe by a Negation Lawbringer. Upon returning, Aristophanes vowed to awaken the sleeping citizens of Atlantis. *Source: Crux #18
