Æon Flux is a mysterious and amoral secret agent from the country of Monica. Her motives or background are left unexplained, as are those of her antagonist/love, Trevor Goodchild. On her missions, she deals swift, bloody "justice" to all that oppose her. The second season episodes of this series were unique in that Aeon died at the end of every single episode. Written by
Did You Know?
Began as a series of short films for MTV. Each of these films, plus a couple of full episodes, ended with Aeon Flux being killed, with continuity being "rebooted" in the following episode. (The 2005 Æon Flux
(2005) live action movie explained that Aeon is cloned each time she is killed.) This angle was phased out over time. Plans for a fourth season were discussed but never fulfilled. See more
The unobserved state is a fog of probabilities, a window of and for error. The watcher observes, the fog collapses, an event resolves. A theory becomes a fact... What is the truth? Tell me, if you know. And I will not believe you. Things are never what they seem. Clean gloves hide dirty hands - and mine are dirtier than most... Without truth, there can be no justice. Justice will be done!
