The Destruction of Mû Impacts Earth
A fragment of Mû hits Earth, killing many species, including most of the First
Humanity. That catastrophe is known as the Great Cataclysm. Even the belated intervention of the Time Brigade of the 40th Century (secretly fouded by the
descendents of Mû) cannot prevent the destruction of the Fifth Planet.
Led by Stormaloon, the Twilight People who had left Mû before the Great Cataclysm, relocate on Earth. Many will become the Monsters of Legends.
Some survivors of the First Humanity find refuge underground. Among these are: the People of the Abyss (later discovered by the Bronze Gladiator), the Spider-Men of Kamandur (encountered by Zembla), the Underground Empires of Mod and Gheo (uncovered by the Cave Patrol). Some find refuge underwater such as the Dagon-worshipping Sirenides.

The Immortals of Mû and the Wise Men of the First Humanity who survived the Great Cataclysm create a new Golden Age: Atlantis!

He creates the Brotherhood of Twelve, later identified with the Priesthood of Mithra, the Secret Order of the Teutonic Knights, the Inner Brotherhood of the Templars, the Council of the Rosy-Cross and, eventually, the Founders of the Time Patrol. One of the Twelve is the man who will be called Count Saint-Germain. Another is Cagliostro.

Even the combined powers of Ptath and Stormaloon cannot save the city. Ptath is plunged in a deep coma and Stormaloon is forced to revert to his primitive dragon-form.
Some Atlanteans led by Orvik, the Celestial Messenger, flee into the vastness of space. Others flee to adjacent universes: The World of Three Moons, later explored by Gun Gallon (a descendent of Gal), the Valley of the Seven Suns (refuge of Man and Klang).
Another group, the Mohenjo Dar, flee to the hidden Tibetan valley of Kappa-Aggartha where the records of the Twelve and the Golden Age of Atlantis are carefully preserved in the Great Memory, a prodigious semi-living machine built by Ptath.

Imitating Altotas and his Twelve, Arthur gathers Twelve Knights to sit at the Round Table: Gawain, Geraint, Gared, Galahad, Gaeris, Bors, Bedevere, Kay, Lamorak, Percival, Tristan, and Lancelot from Britanny.
