Fictional history[edit]

The Undying Ones once held great power over Earth but were forced to return to their own dimension over a millennium ago when their powers began to fade for unexplained reasons. Their powers having been renewed, the Undying Ones unsuccessfully attempted to invade Earth again in recent years under the leadership of the Nameless One.[volume & issue needed] The dimension of the Undying Ones has since been conquered by the creature known as the Slitherer or the Dark-Crawler.[volume & issue needed]

The Undying Ones have come into conflict with Doctor Strange,[volume & issue needed] and the Defenders.[volume & issue needed]

The Undying Ones are led by the Nameless One. The "Nameless One" appears to be a title that can be inherited from the previous holder.

During the Fear Itself storyline, the Undying Ones slip through the barriers that are weakened due to the fear and chaos that is occurring.[1]
