Vox Populi is a Century Baby who reluctantly joined the ranks of The Monarchy.

A Century Baby born in 1901, a year late, she was born to a poor black family in the deep South. On the day of her birth alien beings known as Fever Men descended on her house and took her prisoner and presumably slaughtered her family.

The Fever Men, beings of living "ideas" (psychic energy, presumably) were sent by Chimera, an interdimensional army, to subdue this woman who was destined to become "the voice of the people". And so they kept her in a state of normal-humanity for a century, imprisoning her there in her house.

While The Monarchy was being formed, Prof. Q and Synergy travelled to Addie Vochs' house to awaken her latent Century Baby powers. After the Fever Men attacked and killed Professor Q, Synergy still managed to succeed and in the awakening of her powers she healed Q and destroyed the Fever Men who had tormented her for a century.

At first reluctant to join The Monarchy and risk life and limb, she was convinced (albeit in a fairly heavy handed way) to join their battle against Chimera.


  • Immortality: She was born "with the true century" as a Century Baby- on the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve of 1901. As she grew she displayed certain superhuman abilities and skills, as well as immortality (not aging beyond her 20's). It has been theorized that they act as an immune system for the planet, her very existence protecting Earth. As such she supposedly represents an aspect of the century into which they were born.
    • Decelerated Aging: Additionally, she stopped aging at nineteen and remained this way until her death. Her appearance alters from time to time and it is unclear if this is an effect of her connection to the planet or artist interpretation. She had at least a 100 year lifespan, not aging once she reached adulthood.
  • Voice of the People: Addie is one of the Century Babies, a being produced by the multiverse for a specific task. In her case, this was to influence the people.
    • Audiokinesis: Addie is capable of using her voice for various effects ranging from her abilities to heal or kill with her voice, creating healing songs or devastating cacophonies at will.
