Black Hole

Black Hole from Ultimate Comics Ultimates Vol 1 9 001.jpg

A Black Hole is a region of spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing, not even particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light, can escape from inside it. The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass can deform spacetime to form a black hole.
