Items of Power are powerful relics that Supergroups may acquire by completing the Cathedral of Pain Trial. (The Trial was made unavailable on October 11, 2006 due to an exp exploit. It returned in Issue 18, but no longer gives Items of Power.) They bestow benefits to your entire supergroup for as long as you are able to keep them in your possession. Every character in the supergroup receives these benefits as long as they are in supergroup mode.


Rularuu has obtained a number of powerful relics from the infinite worlds into which he peers. These relics rest at the center of his great palace in the Shadow Shard, the Cathedral of Pain.

Every so often, Rularuu’s legions invade Earth and scour it for these relics, or Items of Power. While this is a dangerous time for earth, it also grants heroes and villains an opportunity to travel to the Shadow Shard and take Rularuu’s items for themselves. With these relics, Rularuu will eventually be able to pierce the veil and transfer his full consciousness into our reality, and ravage it utterly. Great heroes must stop this process. Super villains will want to gain the items for their own personal goals.
