This article contains spoilers for 1923. Read at your own risk.

The 1920s Recurrence started at an unknown point in the 1920s and ended on 31st December 1923, with the passing of the final four gods. The gods of this Recurrence took the forms of important Modernist figures. It was the subject of the 1923 special.


Little is known about much of the events during the 1920s Recurrence. It ended with the meeting of the final four gods, Amaterasu,[1] Amon-Ra,[1] Minerva[1] and Susanoo, who killed themselves in an explosion overseen by Ananke. At this meeting, eight skulls were placed on the table to represent the eight dead gods.

Footage has survived of the 1920s Recurrence, but the miracles themselves could not be recorded on camera. All that can be seen is crowds freaking out over what appears to be nothing.

According to David Blake, the 1920s gods went off the rails in their second year of godhood. He referred to it as 'the bloody retreat'.[2]
