The Protege is a cosmic entity, the childlike ruler of the Universal Church of Truth.
In order to save the lives of the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Skrull shapeshifter Replica left them to give herself as a playmate to Protege, her god. However, she comes into conflict with Protege's other companion, Malevolence, the daughter of Mephisto. Thus, upon receiving a call for aid from her old friend Martinex, as his planet is being torn asunder by multiple tragedies, Replica dodges the attentions of Protege and Malevolence to answer this call, though ultimately it is Protege who lets her go. Despite this, she still had to be rescued from a Universal Church ship by Firelord.
In the 31st century of Earth-691, the Living Tribunal was nearly usurped by Protege, whose abilities to duplicate the powers of others allowed him to manifest the Living Tribunal's own power. The Guardians of the Galaxy struggled futilely against Protege, and the Living Tribunal itself wasn't able to defeat it. Protege claimed to have become not the new Living Tribunal, but the new One Above All, though he was ultimately stopped by the combined efforts of The Living Tribunal and the Celestial Scathan the Approver. The Tribunal then absorbed the Protege into itself to prevent him from endangering reality again.
