Flashfire was a long standing member of the Imperial Guard. He fell in love with his fellow Imperial Guard member Oracle and they planned to wed. Unfortunately for some reason the relationship fell through.
When the focus of the decay of the universe was found to be the Earth, the Majestor addressed the Galactic Council, and decided that the Earth had to be destroyed to save the universe. Even though the Shi'ar planned a sneak attack on the Earth, the Guardians of the Galaxy managed to discover their plan and warned the Avengers.
While approaching Earth, the Shi'ar alerted humanity that they had two hours left to live until Earth was destroyed by their fleet. Using a super weapon capable of channeling the Earth's power, Sunspot and A.I.M. retaliated against the Shi'ar in front, while S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Avengers used a Planetkiller seized from the Builders to attack from behind. However, A.I.M.'s weapon overheated and exploded, and the Planetkiller was destroyed by the Annihilation Wave. With no options left, the Avengers prepared to meet their end. However, the Illuminati used the controller disk of a rogue planet that shared the same space with Earth while phased while Iron Man flew to Sol's Hammer, and prepared to use it.
Iron Man charged and fired Sol's Hammer, successfully destroying the Shi'ar fleet, including Grannz.
Once the universe was destroyed, it was ultimately recreated. The Shi'ar and the Imperial Guard were brought back as a byproduct of the multiversal renewal, with no memories of the events surrounding the universe's temporary demise, like the rest of the inhabitants of the universe.
