IN COSMIC HIERARCHY
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.

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.

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.

‘WHAT IF THE PHOENIX HAD NOT DIED’ ?
In our short-story of love, passion, destruction and extinction, we begin with Uatu in the Earth-616 universe. To begin,the Watcher ponders the Phoenix's journey with the X-Men. In his musings, he contemplates an alternate reality... Here, Phoenix did not die! Instead, the X-Men lost their battle against the Shi'ar and the Phoenix Force was psychically lobotomized from Jean Grey. But in reality, this was further from the truth. On a fateful day, the X-Men were called into battle by Lilandra. On the alien planet Arama, our children of the atom were to face Galactus trying to consume the planet... and his herald Terrax! A fierce battle followed during which Terrax struck down the X-Men, even threatening Cyclops. At that moment, we realized that the Phoenix had been laying dormant. Violently, she emerged and removed the Power Cosmic from Terrax. Then, she valiantly engaged Galactus in combat. Soon, she defeated him and repelled his invasion. However, Jean is overwhelmed by the fury and the passion of the Phoenix. A cosmic fiery bird of death and rebirth, Phoenix destroyed asteroids and consumed a star. Eventually, the X-Men returned to Earth. When Shadowcat berated Jean for losing control, the telepath killed her. Soon, Dark Phoenix destroyed the X-Men one by one. Finally, the death of her lover, Cyclops, was the last straw. In a fit of rage, folly and cosmic madness, the fiery bird consumed Earth, then the galaxy, and finally, the universe and beyond. Here ends the story of the Phoenix which should serve as a cautionary tale to not let this fiery cosmic bird to reign unimpeded in the cosmos.
