Secret Wars Volume 1
Unaffiliated: Covert / Instinct
Not much is known about Proxima’s origins in terms of her home planet, parentage, and upbringing.
When Thanos targeted Earth as the next planet to raze, Proxima Midnight was dispatched to Atlantis to retrieve Namor’s Infinity Gem. But first, she opted to make landfall in the heart of New York City. The Avengers’ main team had left to battle the Builders in space, so Proxima Midnight used this opportunity to make way for the decimation of Earth as a tribute to her dark master. With a contingent of Thanos’ army, she proceeded to lay waste to the city, eventually coming into conflict with Luke Cage and the latest incarnation of the Mighty Avengers.
