Abstract entities are conceptual beings that do not have physical form. They manifest through "M-Bodies" provided by Anthropomorpho from the Dimension of Manifestations.[2]


Type of Government

There is a hierarchy. At the top is the Living Tribunal, who serves the One Above All. Below them are the "four pillars of reality": Eternity, Infinity, Death, and Oblivion.[9] After the original Living Tribunal died, Eternity and Infinity temporarily took charge until the new Living Tribunal appeared.[10]


The Living Tribunal, Eternity, Infinity, Death, Oblivion, Master Order, Lord Chaos, the In-Betweener, Mistress Love, Sire Hate, the Phoenix Force, and many others.


  • Eternity, Infinity, Death, and Oblivion are the strongest abstract entities, aside from the Living Tribunal, and they are considered "the four points of the cosmological compass" by Quasar.[11]
  • The term "abstract entity" is sometimes used interchangeably with cosmic entities. Galactus, Celestials, Aspirants, and even the Proemial Gods have all been called abstracts.[5][12]
    • As clarified in Quasar #37, Galactus, Celestials, the Stranger, Watchers, etc. are not actually abstract entities; however, they can manifest M-bodies via Manifestations in the same fashion as abstracts.
