Council of Light
The Council of Light is the name of a multiverse oversight group supposedly created following the downfall of the Utopians.
According to Agent Sidestep, the Council of Light came to be after the supposed fall of the Utopians. Their non-interference directive was rendered moot by the activities of Doc Tor and other Utopians seeking to bring order and to stop future threats like Alor from coming to power.
The Council of Light is actually a collection of celestial forces, beings that evolved beyond physical bodies, and are able to perceive threats that would otherwise threaten realities. They are advanced enough to know that action must be taken sometimes to preserve the whole of the multiverse. This not only includes threats that destroy universes, but also dimensional incursions that threaten the sovereignty of other universes.
Since the Council members no longer have physical forms, they cannot physically take action. Thus they have to rely on various agents to do their work.
- Agent Sidestep - Agent Sidestep was initially assigned to assess Galatea Future's threat to the multiverse as a time anomaly. When he came to the realization that she was no longer an Omega-level incarnate, his mission was altered and he was sent there to observe her activities to make sure she does not become an Omega-level incarnate again. He is currently based in the world of Champions Online.
- Quinn - First seen in "Furia and the Guardians" #5, this mysterious agent also serves the Council of Light and was instrumental in helping Galatea Powers return to the Primal Universe. It is unclear what other purpose he serves, or if he is - or is connected to - Doc Tor.
- Captain Lynch - Anderson Lynch, formerly a fanatical nativist agent for Project Citadel in the world of Champions Online, was recruited into the Council at the behest of Agent Sidestep. He currently serves as liaison between the Council and the United Nations Tribunal on International Law.
They are first officially seen in "Future's Guardian" #19.
