Deathwings are large winged creatures that dwell in the heart of the Black Sun located in the midst of the Dark Nebula. They appear as solid black Pterodon-looking creatures. Their chill breath will strip flesh from the bones of beings. They can be summoned by the Dire Wraiths though not controlled by them. A number of them were able to thwart Galactus attempt to devour the Wraith's star system (Wraithworld and the Black Sun).
