      My fave: Marvel Earth lies upon the Celestial Axis, a ribbon of organic energy that runs through time and space.


        1. The Celestials created Eternals, Deviants, and mutants.
        The Celestials gave primitive humans the capability for benevolent mutations. Apparently, they have done this to other worlds, but Earth is the first one to successfully develop or at least not destroy itself yet. Is this story still canon?

        Earth isn't even one of the first to develop or not destroy itself. Skrulls and Kree are products of Celestial tampering, as well.

    Well technically the Skrulls did destroy their original homeworld by creating the Shaper of Worlds if memory serves

    And then its replacement got destroyed by Galactus but that's not their fault.


      Which calls into question the Celestials coming back to destroy Earth if humans stop evolving. It's been fact for a long time that Skrulls and Kree have stopped evolving, yet Celestials don't seem to care much.

    Maybe the Skrulls killing off their flatscan and eternal counterparts (and scaring off the Dire Wraiths) and the Kree killing off their deviant and eternal counterparts (and scaring off the Cotati) rendered those experiments moot.

So... "Genetic cleansing" wins the game? Yikes.

    Humans sharing a planet with races like the Eternals and Deviants may have created the competition necessary for humans to evolve.

Yeah, but competition is competition, regardless of where it comes from. Skrull's and Kree's competition with themselves and each other and everyone else is still very present and would lead to evolution. Anyway, I have problems with that whole plotline. The idea of races so vast as them not evolving is ludicrous.

    I would say the Celestials never really want to destroy earth. They just find some unknown quality of us lacking and every so often they come and scare us into getting our shit together.

Yeah. I don't know why I wrote "destroy Earth." I meant humans.


      They also don't seem to care much about The Brethren, a race of evolved bacteria they once used to eradicate unworthy worlds. The Celestials abandoned them ages ago and they're allowed to freely roam the universe. There generally hasn't been a whole lot of rhyme or reason to how they deem their experiments.

    I would assume Overmind's people were also another experiment.

Yeah. That's the assumption. I don't think it's ever been verified, or the Eyungians just liked to call themselves Eternals because they called their homeworld Eternus.

    One thing I've always wondered about...the races in the Shi'ar ...modified by Celestials or not? The multitude of power sets would seem to imply it but I don't remember anything ever tying the Shi'ar to the Celestials.

There's a lot of Shi'ar history that needs to be delved into, but there's never been so much as a hint of Eternal or Deviant Shi'ar. They do seem to have lots of potential superpowers, and there's some question of mutations, but nothing concrete.

    For whatever reason I've always assumed the Badoon evolved naturally without Celestial intervention...and were utterly unremarkable as a result.

Badoon have been grossly under-appreciated by Marvel, imo.


      Ego seems to have been their handiwork. They once judged him/it.

    Wasn't Ego one of many other sentient planetoids? I seem to remember him getting absorbed by something called Super Ego that was absorbing others like Ego during Defalco's run on Thor.

    In fact didn't they create a whole galaxy and then destroy it so it could hatch a Celestial...I seem to remember that.
