How to Catch a Chronofly.

She can't be killed, she can reverse any damage done to herself, and, to top it all off, she can predict whatever someone's going to do BEFORE they do it!

Needless to say, Aeon makes for quite the scary villain. To say she's overpowered is putting it lightly. With powers such as hers, how can anyone possibly defeat her?

And that's today's discussion: How do you think Aeon can be defeated and/or destroyed? Feel free to contribute your ideas, as well as add on to what I list here.

Here's my ideas. Give that we know so little about Aeon as of right now, they won't be too detailed:

1. Understanding Aeon's Past -- To defeat thine enemy you must know thine enemy. In other words, knowing how Aeon came to exist could shed some light onto her secrets, and I believe I am quite mistaken if I were to think Aeon wanted any of HER secrets getting out, most specifically those relating to Veronica, Nuci's beloved mother.

2. Immunity to her Power -- We learned that Flarah, in addition to a man and two reptile girls, are able to completely resist Aeon's time control and omniscient sight. If there's a way to take advantage of this, it'll make fighting Aeon all the easier. However, that's no reason to get cocky. This unknown power only grants a person protection from Aeon's control and perception. She can still undo any and all damage to herself. Think of it as having an impenetrable shield, but no weapon to strike back with.

3. Something Stronger than Aeon's power -- Perhaps there's something so powerful, not even Aeon's chronological control can reverse it. An attack, a weapon, a spell, a secret that so damaging, not even Aeon can stop it.

4. Erased from Existence -- Perhaps Aeon's like Zachary Comstock (Bioshock Infinite), in which case "it'll only be over when [she] never even lived in the first place".

5. Twilight -- Aeon's semblance may be time itself, but Twilight's semblance is magic. Since Aeon's relies so heavily on her magic, would that make Twilight the superior Queen? Perhaps Twilight's appetite would appreciate having Aeon as a treat. Given how powerful the Chronofly is, Aeon would probably be a feast to Twilight's gluttony.

6. The Unseen Variable -- Aeon forged her path to freedom by extorting Mika's dirty little secret. She saw a chance at freedom and seized it without hesitation. The question here is, "How far into the future did Aeon see?" Did she see her future as the ruler of Eden? Or . . . did she only see as far as she wanted? We have to remember: Aeon's ability to predict the future is only approximative. She can't possibly see everything that ever will be because every decision, every action molds the course of the future. Again, just imagine how much sickness it causes her every time someone does something unexpected.

Could there be something Aeon's not seeing? Is there a fatal flaw to her brilliantly evil scheme that could unravel everything? Is there a variable, a secret, a danger that would could make Aeon wish she was never released from her cage?

What if she inadvertently set her own demise into motion by jumping the bid for freedom too early?

Well Aeon is not invincible and it has been hinted that besides uncertainty she has other weaknesses. From what I know about those who can control time, from other franchises, while they can see the future they cannot see their own future. While Aeon can see what happens to her its most likely as a second hand account based on view other peoples timelines. Now as for powers its like you said its reliant on magic which means that their are some limits. One is that her reserves are not infinite so if she runs out of magic she can use her time spells which means she would be vulnerable. Another way could be to use a spell or object that nullifies magic, which could also be useful against Twilight, preventing Aeon from controlling time. Lastly, if a certain ability that reflects, looking at Star and Daniel, was used against her. In fact, if a reflection ability was used on Aeon would that somehow revert her personality back to being Veronica. I think that if the author did this it would be an interesting way to kill a Dark Queen without actually killing her and instead redeeming her character. Now as for Aeon being OP it may appear as much but that is only because unlike the Gemini the other Dark Queens don't have an obvious weakness, but they have a weakness.

There is indeed a way to kill her. Much like how all the Dark Queens have some form of weakness or another, the same goes for Aeon. Of course how difficult it may be or the cost of doing so remains to be seen. Regarding your previous post about Aeon I did mention a clue as to how her time could be brought to an end.
