At this period, Vampires emerged on Atlantis, originated from sorcerers who used the Darkhold in order to oppose Kull. After Kull's rule, the Deviants of the kingdom of Lemuria ,  on the continent of Mu ,  eventually enslaved most of humanity, became the dominant race and ruled the world. The Deviants then turned their heads to Atlantis,  the last significant human kingdom resisting them.
Atlantis' defenses caused seismic disturbances under their city. Titanos destroyed, Zuras led his Eternals to create new cities: Oceana in the Pacific Ocean , Polaria in Siberia and their capital city Olympia in the mountains of Greece. Attacked by the Deviants led by Deviant Emperor Phraug using the Serpent Crown , and witnessing a world fallen into chaos, they delivered their judgment.

The people of the Atlantean city Netheria were able to form a dome protecting their city when Atlantis sunk, allowing them to survive the cataclysm.

The Deviants went underground and adored the Dreaming Celestial , who opposed his fellow Celestials' transgression.

The Deviant priesthood then instated the ritual of "Purity Time", in order to stockpile an army of Deviants in suspended animation, dubbed the " Fifth Host ", clear the gene pool from undesirable mutations and restart the population growth, the Deviants having become too disgusted with their bodies to reproduce. For a complete description of the evolution of the mutants and their population, please refer to this article. The earlier recorded mutant Homo superior   or Homo sapiens superior ,   Selene , was born At least In human pre-history,  Randac was elected upon his genetic superiority and created a Terrigenesis program opened to everyone wishing to undergo the process.
That program was stopped as half of the subjects developed non-human mutations, causing severe damage to the Inhuman gene pool. The program was then restricted. Centuries later, Inhuman leader Gral , in order to end the discrimination towards the non-human-looking minority, forced all Attilan population to undergo Terrigenesis, turning three quarters of the populations into non-humanoids types, leading to more damage to the genetics of the species and segregation by phenotypes.

The humans were then the dominant species on Earth and some worshiped them as the Space Gods, building temples and statues in their honors.
