Cosmic Beings

I have always been a fan of the Cosmic Beings from Marvel Comics and have compiled lists of them and had many discussions on comic forums about them.
I compiled a list of what I hope is every cosmic being, deity, demon, abstract entity and O level being in the Marvel Universe. I am considering posting that list here if there is some interest.
Anyone else interested in them?

Here is a few pics of some...

Excellent Panel! I have loads of Galactus pics on my computer but I don't have that one. Thank you for posting that!:smiley:

I like how Galactus is perceived by different races according to their own appearance or perception of him.

I was so disappointed with the lack of the Big G's appearance in the "Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer" film.
 
who is the chick in the white and green, 2nd row, halfway across, next to the star guy? looks familiar.

She is called Destiny (Not to be confused with DC Comic's 'Destiny' who is a cosmic observer like Marvel's 'Watcher'). She is meant to be the embodiment of destiny.
She used to communicate with Dr Strange through 'The Eye of Agamotto'.

not to be confused with the Destiny (male, I think) from the Sandman (Neil Gaiman) series.
I really hated that Sandman stuff; depressing and disturbing.

thanks!
 
Marvel Cosmic Hierarchy
This is a rough guide to the Cosmic Hierarchy of the Marvel Universe. I say “rough” because for the most part a guide like this is based on ones interpretation of how these characters are positioned in the cosmic scheme of things revealed in the comics and in official profiles etc.

Even with the advantage of comic panel evidence and the comic book profiles it is still largely a controversial subject when designing a hierarchy, as some are based on power, some on importance, position or purpose. Basically, it is at the whim of the writers where a character is placed on the hierarchy and is subject to change depending on what the writers want to happen.
A being who is all powerful one moment may be depowered the next or vice versa. For example; The Beyonder was the single most powerful being in the Marvel Universe, he was later part of a Retcon (Retroactive Continuity) , meaning his origin was changed, and he was de-powered to cosmic cube level, however, it appears he has been powered up again in recent times. The same thing happened with Owen Reece, the Molecule Man.

The One Above all is supposed to represent God in the Marvel Universe, and the writer of the Comics, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby maybe, the creators of Marvel characters. TOAA is only mentioned and not really seen, and is the one who gives authority and power to the Living Tribunal to keep the cosmic balance and Judge Cosmic issues.
