Creators and Appearances


Embodied by the First Firmament, the First Cosmos was the very first universe to ever exist. During the Celestial War, the Celestials detonated their unimaginable weapons against the Aspirants, shattering the First Firmament into pieces. The hundreds of new universes born from those pieces coalesced into the first Multiverse and its personification.[4]



  • Two other different accounts as to how the First Cosmos was split into the Multiverse were presented throughout the years:
    • Nemesis, the only living thing that existed within any and all realities, chose to put an end to itself because of its loneliness. From its ashes rose the Multiverse as well as the six Infinity Gems, the reincarnated form of the being's might.[7]
    • The Celestials, wanting symmetry, created the Exterminators to be the death to the life they made from the darkness. When their creations turned against them, the Celestials split the universe into the Multiverse and sealed the Exterminators into one of those universes.[3]
