But for many in the world of Champions Online, they have only known Galatea as being from “the far future”. That’s the way that it’s been for the past ten years, ever since she first appeared in “The Lost Adventures of Galatea Future” Issue #1. The truth of her origins were kept a secret known only to a small group of people.
That has now changed. Recent events forced Galatea’s origins to be revealed to the United Nations Security Council, and they’re now insisting on full disclosure.
In Issue 20 of “Future’s Guardian”, Galatea’s attention will be divided between discussing her past and demonstrating her current abilities. This will take her from her days in the alternate timeline of “The City” to the moon with a familiar friend.
“Galatea’s time as an incarnate will be a covered in unusual ways,” said creator and editor David 2. “We’ve never really understood what it’s like to be powerful enough to be ‘god-level’. How strong is strong enough? How fast is fast enough? What is it like to have ‘hyper-intelligence’? Being on the level of gods changes your perspective of things. That really comes out when Galatea is talking with Doctor Silverback and he’s marveling about being on the moon, and she just finds the experience as boring.”
Issue 20 also gives readers the opportunity to see just how Galatea was able to recognize Watcher Twelve from “The Crucible”.
David 2 explains. “When Galatea confronts Watcher Twelve and Sinnamon Kitten in ‘The Crucible’ #36, she asks them if they’re hunters or scroungers. It’s something that only someone with multiverse experience would know, especially if they came across either one or the other. In this issue we learn just how she is able to recognize Watcher Twelve and why she thinks anyone wearing the device he has invites trouble.”
Galatea will also be tested on her current abilities, including her newest “beam vision” power. David 2 says this is something that isn’t really what she thinks it is.
“When she first unleashed her new beam vision in Issue #18, she knew there was something different about it. But she never really had the opportunity to test it. Now, in this issue, she’s able to do so with the help of Doctor Silverback and an old opponent.”
But that’s not all that comes out in this issue. There are certain secrets that Galatea didn’t want revealed, and they are the kind that could be dangerous if made known to certain groups.
What are those secrets?
You’ll have to find out when “Future’s Guardian” #20 goes online on Friday, April 30th.
