Amaterasu is a member of an extra-dimensional race of beings known as the Amatsu-Kami ("Heavenly Ones") who were worshipped as gods by the Ancient Ainu and Japanese people in Eastern Asia. She is one of a trinity of gods at a large hierarchy of deities along with Susanoo, the storm-god, and Tsukuyomi, the moon-god.[1]

Amaterasu and the Council of Godheads attempted to avoid the doom of Amatsu-Mikaboshi, the Chaos King, but were inadvertently revealed in their pocket dimension by Hercules.[3] Amaterasu and her pantheon were killed and consumed by Mikaboshi, turned into his slaves.[4]


Amaterasu possesses the conventional physical attributes of the Amatsukami or Gods of Japan.[1]

Amaterasu also possesses extraordinary powers to tap into and manipulate mystical energies for a number of effects, mostly in conjuring great heat and light on the level of a small sun.[4]
