The Elder Gods are a powerful, ancient race from an alternate world. They have entered the Hasbro Universe twice and fought against Cobra and the Transformers.
Despite being trapped in their dimensional prison, the Elder Gods had the power to reach out to sensitive beings. Among them was Howard Lovecraft, who channeled the Elder Gods' call into horror prose. Despite the clandestine organization, Oblivion, succeeding at killing Lovecraft before his art could threaten to allow the Elder Gods into the universe, his stories spread into popular culture. This collective imagination, with the help of Artillica, let loose the Elder Gods. Free and unencumbered, they rampaged along the multiverse. Infestation 2 #1
