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 meeting place of the Illuminati.[3] When Ebony Maw located Thanos' son in Greenland, Thane, the Black Order departed to said country.[4]

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, secret base of the Illuminati[5]

The Cabal

Proxima Midnight was freed by Namor, who had been expelled from the Illuminati for destroying an alternate world during an Incursion, and joined his Cabal, in order to destroy another colliding Earth, as the Illuminati were willing to let Earth die, because they didn't possess the necessary lack of morality to destroy a world.[6]
