- These Stones, it seems, can only be brandished by beings of extraordinary strength. Observe. These carriers can use the Stones to mow down entire civilizations like wheat in a field.“

The Celestials are a race of cosmic entities who possess god-like powers. The celestials were present long before the Dark Elves and Asgard, and at one time they wielded the baron of the Infinity Stones.
A sever Celestial principal was used as a mine colony on Knowhere where the Collector ran his museum. When the Guardians deliver The Orb to the Collector, the character Collector showed them a commemorate on the history of the Infinity Stones, which depicted the Celestials as the Stones ‘ original owners. The record besides showed a Celestial using the Stone inside the Orb to wipe out an foreigner race .
We discover that the Celestials are aboriginal beings of unknown beginning. They begin as nervous tissue ( i.e. a brain ) and can manipulate topic around themselves to create much larger and durable forms. Ego began his own being as a satellite and finally created a separate embodiment to imitate what he imagined ‘life ‘ to look like in regulate to interact with other beings across the population. It is unclear whether all “ original ” Celestials similarly began their lives as planets, although the sheer size of Knowhere ( the severed head of a long-dead Celestial ) suggests that they are normally massive. It is besides unknown how many Celestials presently exist since it is speculated that Ego was animated for millions of years and mated with countless species before he was able to produce a individual Celestial offspring, Peter Quill. Whether or not any of the early Celestials mated to produce feasible offspring remains to be seen .
