Fictional character biography
Sise-Neg (genesis spelled backwards) is a 31st-century sorcerer who attempts to become omnipotent by time traveling back through history and collecting all magical energies. While in 18th century Paris impersonating the magician Cagliostro, the character encounters the Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange, who was at the time searching for perennial foe Baron Mordo.
Despite opposition from Strange, Sise-Neg travels back to a prehistoric time on Earth when the demon Shuma-Gorath rules, and subsequently banishes the entity. Continuing to journey back in time, Sise-Neg reached the moment prior to the Big Bang that creates the universe and absorbs all of the magic in the universe. Originally intending to recreate the universe in his image, Sise-Neg realizes that his quest to achieve godhood was pitiable as reality is harmony and as it should be. He therefore decides to recreate the universe exactly as it was.
