The Big Bang is the colloquial term for the early cosmological development of the Universe. It occurred approximately in the year 14 billion BCE.
Beginning from a spacetime point of infinite density, the Big Bang expanded rapidly but subsequently cooled sufficiently for the conversion of energy into subatomic particles, with simple atomic nuclei emerging within the first three minutes. Millennia would pass before the first atoms took shape, however. Even later, giant clouds of the primordial elements coalesced to form galaxies and stars, which would eventually lead to planets and life.
The great Infinity Knight commissioner Sassafrass would use time travel to visit the Big Bang, where he officially established his High Command in order to make it the Universe's most senior law enforcement organisation.
