In the beginning, there was only one. A single black
infinitude ... so cold and dark for so very long ... that even
the burning light was imperceptible. But the light grew, and the
infinitude shuddered ... and the darkness finally ... screamed,
as much in pain as in relief.
For in that instant a multiverse was
born. A multiverse of worlds vibrating and replicating. And a
multiverse that should have been one, became many.

on Infinite Earths #1
Yes, in the beginning, there was only one. And
it was called MV1, Marvel Volume One. It was a fan fiction
group formed right after Onslaught/Heroes Reborn, continuing with
the original numbering of many Marvel titles.
Well, the authors of that group once asked if they
could write crossovers with their favorite DC characters.
Then a man by the name of Barry
Reese (Huntress, JLA, Wonder Woman, and Supergirl for the Faux
DC!) proposed that a new DC group be created. He didn't have
the time then to run one himself, but many of the other MV1 writers
were very excited by the idea of taking a crack at the DCU. That's
where I came in.
It began with our first site designed and built by
Josh Corum. I, through
circumstances that still confuse me over a year later, became Editor
in Chief. Who am I? I'm Clay
"the Mighty Miry" Arceneaux. Josh served as my Executive
Editor and general right hand man through out our rocky first year.
Well when Anniversary time rolled around, and to everyone
else's shock we had survived to see it, we began thinking of things
we could do to celebrate it. One thing we knew we wanted to do was
give the site a facelift, but after helping get the ball rolling
on that, Josh decided to step down as ExE to start college. (some
people have no sense of priority)
Since I knew there was no way I could do this gig
without help, I turned to one of my very best "net friends",
Ralph "Mr. Cosmic"
Angelo. Right off the bat Ralph comes up with an idea which
served to energize the whole project- the Cold
So that's where we are. If you've enjoyed what you've
