The Celestials were an ancient race of god-like beings who were present long before the dawn of the galactic communities and even the Dark Elves and Asgardians. They were notorious for using the Infinity Stones.
The origin and nature of the Celestials is shrouded in mystery. Whatever was known about them is known only to a few, such as Taneleer Tivan. The Celestials used the Power Stone as a means of execution against those who wronged them. Knowhere, a spaceborne mining colony, is actually the severed head of a deceased Celestial. There is also Ego, a brain-like Celestial that created a body for himself.
