Encephalon appears as part of Blackheart's answer to Red Hulk during his attempted take over of Earth. Red Hulk immediately begins to beat on him until Encephalon commands him to stop. Red Hulk is restrained and slammed into the ground. Encephalon then commands Red Hulk to experience terror and depression and causes images of bugs crawling all over his skin. Encephalon gathers with the Antitheses to convince Ghost Rider to take Blackheart's deal. Red Hulk and Venom regroup and attack, switching their targets. Venom fires on Encephalon as Ghost Rider charges for him. Encephalon grabs her and rips open her chest to show nothing inside. While fighting with the Evangelist, Venom deflects his Bible pages into Encephalon, tearing him to shreds.
