Unum possesses immense strength (enough so that a single blow could kill someone as strong as the She-Hulk) and was able to fire extremely powerful blasts of energy originating from the Negative Zone. These blasts are capable of killing anyone in their path.
Unum is the combination of minions who served beings such as Annihilus, the Magus, Dormammu and many others.
These minions, who constantly offer up their energy, their devotion and their very lives to their masters, received only hate, abuse, humiliation and death for their services. One day, there came a point, where as one, their minds screamed out in fury over their lives, and a powerful cosmic being known as Enmity, heard, and answered their call. She merged them into one single being so that they could indulge hatred, and ultimately reflect in Enmity's glory.
After being merged into one, Unum's sole purpose was to destroy heroes in the name of Enmity, her first target was female heroes. After killing an unnamed female hero and her child, Adula on the planet Yor, Unum made her way to Earth, where she attacked She-Hulk and her partner Jazinda. As Unum was about to kill the duo using energy drawn from the Negative Zone, they were transported away by one of The Elder's of the Universe, The Collector.
Here, She-Hulk was placed with Thundra, Valkyrie, The Invisible Woman and Storm where they were all held captive for, as The Collector claimed, their own protection. Jazinda was held captive separated from She-Hulk, along with Lyja, Quasar, Gamora and Mantis.
The two sets of heroes, guided by She-Hulk on one side, and Mantis on the other, were able to break free of their holding cells and join together.
Unum by this time, had realized it was The Collector that had come between her and her prey, and attacked The Collector. The battle between the two knocked them to where the heroes were all gathered and a battle between Unum and all the heroes broke out.
Mantis, realizing the truth about what was transpiring, led herself, She-Hulk and Unum to all be impaled on Quasar's Quantum Sword. Upon this, the three found themselves in the presence of Enmity, where she explained to She-Hulk and Mantis the origin of Unum.
She-Hulk realized what was driving Unum, and by telling her that Enmity was in fact worse than all the other masters the minions had served, that in fact, Enmity was simply using Unum for "grins and giggles", she was able to turn Unum against Enmity. Unum shoved her spear-axe through Enmity's body, which infuriated Unum. In a blast of energy, both Enmity and Unum were gone. The blast was so powerful, that both She-Hulk and Mantis needed The Collector's help to heal from their wounds.
Eventually, The Collector sent all the heroes back to where they came from (their exact spots before he took them) and warned them all that he was going to keep an eye on them.
Whether Unum was destroyed by Enmity or not is unknown at this time.
