Degeneration and Elder Gods culling
According to the Darkhold, one million years ago, Chthon led a group of evil Gods and Great Old Ones in a war against a benevolent faction, but was sealed away alongside his side by his victorious opponents.
Gaea currently resides within the Earth itself. Oshtur formed the Vishanti to assist Earth's Sorcerer Supreme. Set and Chthon were driven from Earth by Gaea's son Atum, but still exert influence through their followers and artifacts.
- The magical hierarchy was confirmed in the Marvel Tarot #1 and Mystic Arcana to only have four surviving elder gods. All other elder gods were destroyed by Atum and are where the pantheons of Humankind emerged. Atum has himself been considered as an (additional) Elder God.
