The Godwave was a cosmic force of divine energy that was formed when the Third World of Urgrund had split in two and echoed from the essence of the Source. The wave of power swept across the cosmos, leaving a seed of divinity wherever it touched, and became responsible for creating various pantheons of gods and divine entities on various planets. As the energy wave spread, it eventually reached the edge of the universe and rebounded, making a second pass that created the potential for superhumans on planets such as Earth. In time, the resonance created by the Godwave began to expand and contract whereupon it returned to the Source. This expansion and contraction began to affect the powers of various beings throughout the universe. As a result, the cosmic energy force began to tear apart the structures it had created whereupon it would wipe the universe clean to bring about the emergence of a new and terrible Fifth World to replace it.
- Earth was described as being one of the planets most affected by the Godwave due its natural abundance of beings with superhuman or supernatural abilities.
- The Godwave was responsible for creating the likes of the Speed Force, the Quantum Field, and the energy channeled by the Guardians of the Universe.
