Gaunt was a cyborg soldier two billion years in the future, who took over his era's Cyborg Legion and waged a 10,000 year war for domination of the entire universe. Over centuries, Gaunt murdered trillions and eventually ruled a hundred million world empire. Gaunt was ultimately defeated by the Union of Civilized Planets and imprisoned two billion years further into the future at the end of time, on the Borderline reality, on a lifeless, barren Earth which existed where many alternate timelines converged. His powers suppressed by mutagenic dampeners, Gaunt, whose crimes his captors wished him to eternally ponder, received equipment to satisfy any physical needs, but remained in near-total solitude, served only by mute canine humanoids he found no satisfaction in fighting or ruling.
The modern era Dark Sisterhood offered Gaunt freedom, if he drew alternate reality half siblings Phoenix and Cable to his domain and defeated Cable, leaving him unable to aid their enemy, Mother Askani.
