Arishem the Judge


Arishem is a Celestial credited with the creation of the universe's first Sun. He created the Deviants to protect Celestials growing within planets, but they grew out of control and began to oppose him. To combat his wayward creations, he made the Eternals in the World Forge.

The Eternals all but wiped out the Deviants except for one isolated group who were trapped under Alaska. Worried about the leader of the Eternals, Ajak, opposing the Celestial growing within Earth, Tiamut, Ikaris fed her to the Deviant group, who absorbed her powers. After Ajak's death, Arishem made contact with the Eternal Sersi.

Explaining to her the true purpose of the Eternals, she became horrified and managed to freeze Tiamut, preventing the Celestial from being born. This intrigued Arishem, who abducted Sersi, Kingo and Phastos to study their memories and choose whether or not to obliterate Earth.[1]
