Proxima Midnight was a member of Thanos' Black Order, and one of the best combatants of the Mad Titan's army. When Thanos targeted Earth as the next planet he would raze, Proxima Midnight was dispatched to Atlantis to retrieve Namor's Infinity Gem.[1] Finding Atlantis in rubble and Namor devastated, Proxima deduced that Namor did not have the gem in his possession. She made clear her intentions to kill him and destroy Atlantis to Namor, and offered to spare him and his nation in exchange for the location of the gem. Namor pledged her, his, and Atlantis' allegiance and told her that she could find the gem in Wakanda.[2]

After her fellow Black Order member Black Dwarf failed to break Wakanda, Proxima, Corvus Glaive and Thanos himself departed for Wakanda, defeating it's defenders and breaching their city wall. They narrowed down the potential location of the gem to the Necropolis, the secret base of the Illuminati.[3] When Ebony Maw located Thanos' son, Thane, in Greenland, the Black Order departed to said country.[4] Meanwhile, Proxima sent Kaldera to take care of the new Nova under Thanos' orders.[5] When she failed her mission, Proxima sent her to the "Midnight Sphere," where she would be tortured as a punishment.[6]

When the Avengers arrived in Greenland in order to defeat Thanos, Proxima Midnight was trapped by Thane in an amber construct along with Thanos, which left them in a state of "living death." The two were then taken to the Necropolis.[7]

The Cabal

Proxima along Thanos and Corvus, who had regenerated in the amber construct, were freed from her prison by Namor, who had had a falling out with the Illuminati for destroying an Earth during an Incursion, for the purpose of saving universes from the Incursions as the Illuminati had resolved to rather die than kill the Earths, and joined his Cabal to destroy an Earth during other Incursion and spare both universes.[8]

Time Runs Out

Together with the Cabal, Proxima has participated in the destruction of scores of Earths. She is seen protecting the Necropolis and the Cabal's supply of world-destroying bombs together with Maximus, when T'Challa and Shuri break in and attempt to steal them. [9]
