    Elysius is a genetically engineered being, created by ISAAC using the Life-Baths of Titan. ISAAC or Integral Synaptic Anti-Anionic Computer. Thanos had left Titan, he had left ISAAC corrupted. ISAAC attempted to take over Titan. Elysius was created to be used as a pawn of ISAAC, assisting him in the takeover of Titan.  She acts as its lieutenant and aids in the conquest of Titan. After she fell in love with Mar-Vell she aided him, Drax and Rick Jones in opposing ISAAC. She later joined Mar-Vell and Rick Jones on their trip back to Earth. She then accompanied Mar-Vell to visit Rick in Denver. In order to look for Mar-Vell and the Hulk, she accompanied Bettty Ross Banner, Rick Jones and Fred Sloan in Gamma Base. As Mar-Vell discovered his cancer and realized that he was dying, he confronted Elysius and reminisced with her their memories together as Mentor watches them nearby. During Mar-Vell's last minutes, Elysius was among those other Marvel Heroes that watched him before he completely died. Having been so close to Elysius, Mar-Vell asked his friend Star-Fox to care for Elysius after his death and make sure she was okay. Elysius herself released Star-Fox from this obligation.  
    But she used ISAAC to sample his DNA and used it to help create her a son that Starfox helped to care for in the absence of a father. Mentor advised however that this child would be vulnerable to attack from Mar-Vell's enemies, so this child was then aged artificially and implanted memories of a childhood. The time came to tell her son, Genis-Vell, the truth about his father. She had some Nega Bands created, modeled after Mar-Vell's for him, and gave him the choice. He accepted and became the new Captain Marvel. She remained on Titan after Starfox's departure to join the Avengers on Earth.  After an incident with involved the recreation of the Universe, it was shown that Elysius had created a daughter using similar technology that had created Genis-Vell. Her name was Phyla-Vell and both would go on to aid Genis-Vell regain his sanity when he lost it. Elysius was last seen aiding her daughter Phyla-Vell.
