Mag 12 Cover


The Magnificent 12 is a series of young-adult fantasy novels authored by Michael Grant.

Following a three-thousand-year imprisonment, the Mother of Monsters-- also known as the Pale Queen-- seeks to reawaken from the World Below and extinguish the human race. All that stands in her way is a group twelve twelve-year-olds from around the globe known collectively as the Magnificent 12. David "Mack" MacAvoy is the first of these twelve, thus it is his task to travel the Earth in search of the rest. Along the way, he and his allies must battle the Pale Queen's forces, including insect-like creatures, elves, assassins, and the Pale Queen's own daughter, Princess Ereskigal.

Power of the Verse

The Maginifcent 12 is a decently powerful verse. While the heroes range from Human level to Street level physically, most of them possess a healthy amount of hax. These include, but are not limited to: Time Stop, Transmutation, Light Manipulation, and the ability to create earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes. The Magnificent 12 themselves, also known as the Magnifica, increase even further in power when more of them are together. Ereskigal, or Risky, sits at the upper bounds of Tier 8 via being able to create tornadoes and briefly tank the heat of the sun's core. She also possesses hax, such as Resurrection, Reactive Evolution, and Shapeshifting. The power of the Pale Queen herself is largely unexplored, though she is heavily implied to be even more powerful than her daughter. The Pale Queen is said to be able to take any form, and her mere reawakening was proceeded by earthquakes of increasing magnitude and the formation of a sizeable volcano.

    • tl;dr a 7-C character dying to a 8-A thing does not automatically disprove the 7-C feat. Would the 7-C feat be an outlier now due to this?
