This five-issue series was created in celebration of Eclipse Comics’ tenth anniversary. The story begins with a total eclipse that took place millennia ago. At that moment, a baby was born and was commanded to be sacrificed. The primitive people complied, only to be stunned when the sacrifice…failed.

Since that day, the boy called Zzed has been immortal. But while he once cherished his longevity, he now seeks oblivion destruction above all else. Sadly for him, knives, bullets, bombs, and even dissection are unable to cause him permanent harm. He simply reincorporates, and his life drags on. Finally, he has decided that the only way to destroy himself is to destroy the entire world.

To stop him, Eclipse gathers all of its modern characters, including Miracleman, the Prowler, Strike!, Aztec Ace, and others in an incredible anniversary event.
