Helipolis, which means "City of the Sun", is a realm analogous to Asgard and Olympus, located in another dimension adjacent to Earth. This is the home of a race of powerful human-like entities who possess god-like powers and were worshipped by the ancient Egyptians of the Marvel Universe from 5,000 to 3,000 years ago. Their precise origin, like that of all races of gods of the Marvel Universe, are lost in legend. At the time of the close of the 21st Dynasty of Egypt (about 945 B.C.), the Heliopolitans were imprisoned by their treacherous kinsmen Seth, god of evil, a fate that they escaped in very recent times.

Other known Heliopolitans include: Horus, the falcon-god, Isis, goddess of fertility, Geb-god of the earth, and Nut, goddess of the heavens. The Heliopolitans today have little traffic with humanity, but any Dimensional Entreaty spell to the ancient gods of Egypt, if answered, will be answered by the Heliopolitans.
