Designed by Eon for the Protector of the Universe. They have been worn by Thelius (a Uranian Eternal modified to look like Marvel Boy), Quasar (Wendell Vaughn), Phyla-Vell, Richard Rider and Avril Kincaid. Annihilus also briefly wore the Bands during the Annihilation War. In Earth-691 they are used by the Keeper, an alternate future version of the Silver Surfer (Norrin Radd).

The Nega Bands were created by the Supremor based off of the Quantum-Bands. They use energies of the Negative Zone and the wielder's own psionic energies.

Quantum Bands

The bands draw energy from the Quantum Zone, the realm of potential energy from which all actual energy in the Marvel Universe derives.

The wearer can "Quantum Jump" opening a wormhole in spacetime allowing them to travel vast distances.

The Bands give their wearer control of the electromagnetic spectrum.

The Bands are able to augment the wearer's physical strength and durability. However, it seems that only Thelius was capable of doing so.

The Bands can be programmed to perform certain automatic functions, such as detecting energy, shielding the wearer when they leave an atmosphere into space, etc.

The Bands also link to Eon or currently Epoch.

The Bands can bend light around themselves to appear invisible, allowing the wearer to go around unnoticed. It is not known if the wearer could extend this to allowing themselves to be cloaked or allow image induction, but it is theoretically possible.


The Quantum Bands have no control over magic or telepathy. However, Quasar was able to make himself immune from mental control by some means.
