The Universals are an alien life form. They show up very briefly in the telling of the tale of the Dark Age. But they look so cool and Brent Anderson drew them so well. So here they are as an entry on Herocopia. There is a massive story behind this civilization, but they are probably stuck as window dressing for the duration of time itself.
In 1976 (Earth time), the Honor Guard team members bear witness to the birthing of a new generation of Universals -- an honorary invitation for saving the Infra-Dauphin from some vast and unmentionable Alien Armada.
