Red Shift was an alien of unknown origin who was chosen to become the Herald of Galactus.[1]

During the Annihilation Wave, former Heralds were targeted for capture by Annihilus' troops. Red Shift and his fellow Heralds Stardust and Firelord joined the United Front against the Wave's advance. They managed to fight off the Seekers and escape captivity. They then wreaked havoc on Annihilus' forces, but were soon tracked down from one of their attacks to their base on Daedalus 5. Annihilus ordered an attack on the planet, which led to a massive battle, but realized that this was taking too long. He then used the energy sapped from Galactus to power a turret that destroys entire planets. While the planet's inhabitants evacuated, Red Shift and Stardust attempted to hold off the energy beam but ultimately failed and perished as a result.[2]

Powers

Red Shift possesses the Power Cosmic. He can open dimensional rifts and portals across vast distances, summoning or banishing objects, beings, or energy at will, including black holes.

Red Shift was deemed to have a "Village/city" threat level by the Nova Corps, after having formerly been an Universal-level threat.[3]


Weaknesses

The source of Red Shift's power is his swords; if he were to lose contact with them, he would lose his power.

Equipment

Swords linking him to the Power Cosmic.

Weapons

Cosmic Swords from which his cosmic power is derived. With them he can manipulate the entire electromagnetic spectrum, fly at great speeds, survive unaided in the vacuum of space, and presumably has incredible strength and durability.

The name Red Shift refers to the astronomical measure of direction; if something is moving away from the viewer, its light will be shifted to longer (red) wavelengths.
