WHO ARE THE CELESTIALS?

Originally, the Celestials are a race of extra-dimensional gods. Importantly, they created the Prime Marvel Universe.

However, some misconceptions continue about these nigh-omnipotent beings. Let’s list five myths about the Celestials in comics, TV and movies.

COMICS, FILM AND TV: MYTH #5. THE CELESTIALS HAVE PHYSICAL BODIES

In the Eternals and Guardians of the Galaxy, the Celestials are gigantic space humanoids. In an interview, ScreenRant reveals the Celestials are 200 miles tall. Indeed, this confirms their actual size in the comics. Though, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and What If…? show that Ego can take the form of a planet and a human-sized form.

However, the Celestials’ physical bodies are actually physical constructs. In the comics, it is revealed that the Celestials’ physical bodies are constructs from extra-dimensional hyper space. In fact,  What If? Newer Fantastic Four (2008) #1, reveals the Celestials’ bodies are moved by willpower or thought.

TV AND FILM: MYTH #4. THE CELESTIALS CREATED THE SIX INFINITY STONES

Perhaps, the most correct myth. In a What If…? episode, Ultron used the Infinity Stones in order to kill Ego the Living Planet. From Avengers: Infinity War, Loki learnt from the Quarry of the Gods that the Celestials created the Six Infinity Stones.

In reality, the Celestials created the Six Singularities before the birth of the Marvel universe. From the Six Singularities, the Six Infinity Stones of infinite power were born. In Guardians of the Galaxy, Eson the Searcher uses the Space Stone to destroy a planet.

COMICS AND FILM: MYTH #3. THE CELESTIALS ONLY CREATED THE ETERNALS AND THE DEVIANTS

From the Eternals movie, it appears the Celestials only created two races on Earth: the Deviants and the Eternals. In reality, as space Gods, the Celestials created and evolved multiple races throughout the universe.

In the comics, the Celestials are responsible for genetic experiments on homo superior, the mutant race on Marvel Earth. As matter of fact, part of the reason why they are viewed as villains is because they created the X-Men villain named Apocalypse. More on why, the Celestials may or may not be villains.

COMICS AND FILM: MYTH #2. THE CELESTIALS CREATED THE MARVEL MULTIVERSE

Really, this myth is both correct and incorrect. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Celestials created the Big Bang with the Six Singularities. In fact, the Marvel universe is an endless cycle of rebirth and destruction. However, the Celestials have created only one universe in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In Marvel comics, the Celestials have created the Marvel multiverse. Indeed, they shaped the early cosmos allowing for the multiverse to be created. Though, Secret Wars shows that the Beyonders may have created the Marvel multiverse. In fact, we argue Pre-Retcon Beyonder as Marvel’s God.

COMICS AND FILM: MYTH #1. THE CELESTIALS ARE VILLAINS

In both Marvel comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Celestials appear as cosmic villains. Though this is correct in the Eternals movie, this myth needs explanation. In reality, the Celestials are both creators and destroyers. Since they created the universe or multiverse, they function according to the laws of evolution.

In the comics, Living Tribunal who is the Cosmic Judge, is responsible for creating and destroying universes to maintain balance. Similarly, the Celestials obey the cycles of creation and destruction of the universe. In effect, they are Gods or Abstracts in the Power Hierarchy. In Thor vs Celestial, we show Exitar the Celestial when he judges the planet Pangoria.

IN CIVIL RIGHTS

AT THE END OF FALL OF THE MUTANTS, X-FACTOR REVEALED THEIR IDENTITIES

From the beginning, it was a tale about mutant struggle. What other trailblazers had accomplished before, had prepare for this moment.

In front of cameras, pens and interrogators, Scott passionately made his public announcement. Yes, having saved New York from the cataclysmic ambitions of Apocalypse and the bigotry of Cameron Hodge's The Right, it was time to come out.

Jubilantly, the media had celebrated them as heroes. Gloriously, X-Factor had stopped the mutant god from unleashing the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse on the beloved city.

Now, it was time for the truth. For some time, Warren Worthington III alias Angel had used his fortune in order to recruit Beast, Cyclops, Marvel Girl and Iceman to set up X-Factor. 

In fact, X-Factor had operated outside the law as the X-Terminators.

Today, Cyclops revealed both team were one and the same thing. From that day on, X-Factor would reveal the aliases of its members to support the Mutant Registration Act.

Indeed, it was the Fall of the Mutants. But which mutants? More importantly, would humanity finally come to tolerate mutant difference granting them their civil rights?

Only future adventures would tell.
