Ability to foresee the future and steer events to their inevitable conclusion.
In the distant past, Omnia, Mistress of Light, would lose her final battle against the darkness, but could not be destroyed. Instead, her power was dispersed into many small Orbs of Power. One of these Orbs was bound to Cassandra Newland, who would turn into the enigmatic 'Providence'.
Providence became a member of Helspont's Cabal, acting as oracle and spiritual guide to the Cabal, and often came in conflict with the WildC.A.T.s
Some time after Helspont's defeat, Void fought Providence, who had allied with the witch Tapestry. Tapestry betrayed Providence by refusing to hand over the captive Void to her. Tapestry used her magic to merge Providence and Void, enslaving them both. Tapestry was defeated though and Providence and Void returned to normal, though now they could no longer sense each other's presence.
After Armageddon, she fought an elder god in Rhode Island. Afterwards, she encountered Tao, who had captured Void (Nikola Hanssen) and was forced to fight Void (who was mind-controlled). Providence was captured and put under Tao's control, looking to use her, Void's and Max Faraday's powers to rule Earth. At Tao's base in Salt Lake City, the Wildcats and Team 7 invaded to stop him. To fight Tao, Spartan absorbed Void's powers and Tao absorbed Providence's. While they were fighting, Providence was recharged by Void and battled Tao to let the 2 groups escape. Tao killed Providence by absorbing everything of hers, and caused her to waste away.
