30 Day Marvel Challenge – Day #16: The Most Powerful Character


One-Above-All

Universe: Multiverse

Creators: Mark Waid, Mike Wieringo

First Appearance: Fantastic Four #511 (2004)


Marvel has a number of “all powerful beings” that sometimes run together on me. Most of them can manipulate space and time, reality. Some are “abstract entities” that exists for a specific purpose. They’re Eternity, Infinity, Oblivion, Death, and the Phoenix Force. Together they balance each other. There are the Eternals, the Deviants, the Celestials, and many other beings of great powers and influence. There has been some humans who even reach the levels of some of these beings most notably Franklin Richards. However, there IS a hierarchy in the Marvel universe.

I am the One Above All. I see through many eyes. I build with many hands. They are themselves, but they are also me. I am all-powerful. My only weapon is love. The mystery intrigues me.

One-Above-All

Marvel abstracts, Celestials, Supreme cosmic beings, and The Living Tribunal are all under the Beyonder. However, the Beyonder is second only to the most powerful being in the Marvel universe, One-Above-All. Not to be confused with the Celestial of the same name, the One-Above-All is considered to be the “entity believed to be the supreme being/creator of the Omniverse.” The One-Above-All is responsible for the ” existence of all life in the Multiverse and possibly beyond.” To be honest I find the existence of these uber powerful beings to be confusing. I feels that many of them do the same thing and the other. Basically, Marvel really didn’t explain it’s cosmic system well.

Part of this is due to many different writers can create different characters. This doesn’t even consider the Gods like Odin or Zeus. Regardless, the One-Above-All is THE GOD of the Marvel universe. He is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, his abilities are “beyond any known system of abilities.” How can anybody top that.
