Fictional character biography[edit]

Elysius was created by ISAAC, the sentient computer system of Titan. She serves as ISAAC's lieutenant, and aided ISAAC in its conquest of Titan.[1]

She later aided Captain Mar-Vell, and Drax the Destroyer against ISAAC, Stellarax, Lord Gaea, and Chaos. She then began her romance with Mar-Vell.[2] She returned to Earth with Mar-Vell and Rick Jones.[3]

She later accompanied Mar-Vell to Denver to visit Rick Jones.[4] She accompanied Betty Ross, Rick Jones, and Fred Sloan to Gamma Base in search of Mar-Vell and the Hulk. She departed Gamma Base with Mar-Vell.[5]

Some time later, Elysius attended the death-watch of Captain Mar-Vell.[6]

Later, she remained on Titan when Starfox departed for Earth to join the Avengers. [7]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Elysius is an artificially created being patterned on and possessing the attributes of the long-lived offshoot of humanity called the Eternals. She has superhuman stamina, and her strength, speed, and durability are higher than that of a human. Elysius possesses an extremely long lifespan and immunity to all terrestrial diseases.

Elysius has limited telepathic abilities of an unrevealed nature. She keeps griffin-like creatures which obey her telepathic commands.

She uses an alien hand-weapon capable of disrupting force fields or of firing energy of an unspecified nature as bursts of concussive force. ISAAC crafted her personal sky-ship which resembles an ancient Earth galleon but possesses the capacity of flight.
