Eden Fesi has made quite an impact on the Marvel Universe in just a few short years, a fact that makes a lot of sense when you realize that the young man's what you can call a "universal shaper."
While Fesi, who has taken on the codename Manifold now that he's a card-carrying Avenger, may appear like your run-of-the-mill teleporter, he actually bends reality to his whims and folds space-time itself to accomplish his tasks. He's transported teams off world and moved more people than most any other teleporter in the MU. So yeah, Manifold's a powerful guy – and he had a rather humble beginning.
Manifold first appeared five years ago this month in SECRET WARRIORS #4 by Jonathan Hickman and Stefano Caselli. In the issue, Daisy Johnson and Sebastian Druid – two of Nick Fury's newest and youngest recruits – traveled to the Kata Tjuta rock formations in Australia to recruit another member. Really, though, the inexperienced pair didn't travel to Kata Tjuta so much as crash land in Kata Tjuta. It's a good thing their new recruit just so happened to be a universal shaper.
Daisy revealed that Eden Fesi started taking teleportation lessons from a fellow Aborigine mutant named Gateway. Manifold showed solid taste in mentors, as the powerful Gateway spent a long period of time working with the X-Men when the team set up shop in the Australian outback. Sebastian and Daisy then learned that you don’t find teleporters, they find you.
Manifold sure knew how to make an entrance. He also knew exactly why the pair of super heroes-in-training had traveled all the way to Australia.
No matter how much rock and roll coursed through Eden Fesi's veins, he still had to respect his mentor's wishes. If Gateway didn't want him to go, then he would begrudgingly keep his diaper on. But Gateway's been known to defy expectations…
With Gateway's blessing, Manifold joined Fury's cause. The added power came at the exact right moment, too, as Nick Fury had teamed up with the Howling Commandos in order to wage war on both H.A.M.M.E.R. and HYDRA. Eden Fesi next appeared on the last page of SECRET WARRIORS #5, in a fist pump worthy cliffhanger.
That wouldn't be Manifold's last last minute save. As a member of the Avengers, Eden Fesi has played integral parts in both saving his teammates' lives as well as facilitating massive world-saving plans.
