The Gardeners are creatures created by the Builders to help them shape the universe. A Gardener is always accompained by an Abyss, who is in charge of judging his/her work. An Aleph carries the eggs of a Gardener and an Abyss until it finds a suitable enviroment to let them create life.[1] After the creation of a new universal structure and the misterious death of almost all the Abysses, the Builders recalled all the Gardeners and forbidden them from harvesting worlds, and the Gardeners were relegated to being servants to those who created them.[2]

Somehow, one Gardener wasn't called, and along with the last of the Abysses and an Aleph continued creating life, and his actions to try to make Earth sentient caused the Builders to catalogue that planet as a failure in need to be destroyed. In the process, the Builders conquered and destroyed numerous planets.[3] A resistence composed by the Galactic Council and the Avengers managed to oppose the Builders, who still had the odds in their favor.

Resentful for how the Builders had downgraded them, the Gardeners helped their brother Ex Nihilo to wake up Captain Universe, and turn the tide of the conflict to favor the Avengers.[4]

After the defeat of the Builders and Alephs, the Gardeners returned to their work of growing life in worlds.[5]

Time Runs Out

Due to the contraction of the Multiverse, the universe started decaying, and the Gardeners attempted to fix it, but couldn't. When the coalescing center of this decay focused on a single point, the Earth, the Gardeners and Abyss returned to Earth to investigate.[6] Once on Earth, the Gardeners were able to see its whole system and find that the planet had scars. They were offered by Bobbi da Costa a one-way trip to investigate the origin of this decay by using A.I.M. technology and travel across the Multiverse.[7]
