Little is known about Omniscient’s past. We know that Omniscient had been to earth once before, but Captain Epic believes that it was an act of destiny that brought him to the team. When Omniscient crashed in Toronto, he was able to form his essence into an approximation of a human form. However, since his energy is unaccustomed to holding a human shape, his body is very delicate. It is believed that the Canadian Shield created a shell and helmet that would protect his delicate form while in battle.
He spends most of his time learning of his new home, the creatures that inhabit it and the wonders of having a corporeal form.
