Asgardians' Ginnungagap

The Ginnungagap, or Yawning Void, was the place where the two primordial forces of fire, which was born in Muspelheim, and ice, which first emerged in Niffleheim, first came together to create life as it is.[6] Allegedly, Buri and Ymir were born out of Ginnungagap.[7]

The Røkkva was another primordial antilife entity spawned near the beginning of the universe, roaming the cosmos and mindlessly destroying or corrupting everything it came across, but was imprisoned in a tomb deep in the Barren Mountains of Jotunheim with the All-Fathers of Asgard guarding it.[8]


The dark elder god Knull dwelled in the primordial void that existed before time began, and was enraged when the Celestials intruded and began creating the universe; creating the symbiotes and Exolon by granting life to the abyss in order to destroy everything and return the universe to the void.[4]
