The story took place at a time when the Guardians of the Universe had left Earth's dimension along with their mates, the Zamarons. However, one Guardian, Herupa Hando Hu, and his Zamaron mate, Nadia Safir, traveled to Earth and announced to the world that they would select 10 persons who would become the new Guardians of the Universe, and give birth to a new race of immortals. They gathered Earth's superheroes and sent them to find the chosen persons, who came from various parts of the world. One of them turned out to be Hal Jordan's friend, Thomas "Pieface" Kalmaku, while another was the former villain known as the Floronic Man.
However, unknown to everyone, the robotic cult known as the Manhunters (whom the Justice League believed had been destroyed years before) had found a sphere that Harbinger had used to store all the information she had gathered about the universe after the Crisis on Infinite Earths. Because of it, they knew the secret identities of Earth's heroes, and had planted their agents (including androids, willing human agents, and mind-controlled ones) close to them (in other words, many of the supporting characters featured in the heroes' own comic titles were revealed to be Manhunters.) On finding out about the search for The Chosen, the Manhunters decided to prevent it, and had their agents reveal themselves and attack the heroes. The heroes, joined by Harbinger, defeated the Manhunter agents and then attacked their home planet, defeating the cult again.
The Heroes managed to gather most of the Chosen, but two were killed, one (Terra of the Teen Titans) was already dead, and one was senile. Another Chosen, a bigot from South Africa named Janwillem Kroef, eventually left the group because it contained non-white members. The Guardian and the Zamaron then died activating the latent powers of the remaining Chosen. They became a new superhero group, The New Guardians.
The spirits of Haru and Safir later reappeared and explained that alternate plans had also been put in motion, and that a group of beings created by Kroef would be the true Chosen. The New Guardians later disbanded. The current status of the second Chosen is unknown. The Manhunters are apparently active again.
Issues in event are unknown.

Millennium is a Star Wars alternate history which ties in with the Daal saga, although it takes place over a larger time frame. It is mostly compatible with canon. However, a number of characters, places, events, etc have been added, and some of them may possibly come to contradict canon as it it added, and some events have replaced others. It describes the machinations of the Sith Lord Darth Tilentis in his quest to rule the Galaxy.
The Millennium was also the name of the Sith Order that, among others, Darth Tilentis belonged to (see Millennium (Sith Order)).
