|Appeared in||Guardians of the Galaxy|
The Celestials are ancient humaniod god-like beings with immense power and strength. These beings were present long before the Dark Elves and Asgard and at one time the beings wielded the power of the Infinity Stones.
A severed Celestial head was used as a mining colony on Knowhere where the Collector ran his museum. When the Guardians deliver The Orb to the Collector, the eccentric Collector showed them a recording on the history of the Infinity Stones, which depicted the Celestials as the Stones' original owners. The recording also showed a Celestial using the Stone inside the Orb to wipe out an alien race.
