Beyonder (Marvel)
Real Name: Beyonder
Search for 'Beyonder (Marvel)' on Amazon

The Original Beyonder (Pre-Retcon) the one who is not native to this Multiverse had wielded Omnipotence (Infinite Power), Omniscience (Infinite Knowledge), and Omnipresence (Everywhere at anytime or place). He was once shown capable of limiting him since he wanted to learn through experience even then he was still All-Powerful.

The Beyonder (Cosmic Cube) In this retcon the Beyonder was no-longer a true God he was turned into a newborn cosmic cube who were the many children of the All-Powerful race known as the "Beyonders" he was purposely exposed by his race to observe and mimic what he perceived and as Hank Pym described his power to make an entire universe into a toy and where his Race makes entire Universes into Toys.

The Beyonder (Pre-Retcon) has no true weakness unless he made it so he did even when he did he could not be defeated not even by the Molecule Man.

The Beyonder (Cosmic Cube) is when he was turned weaker than The Living Tribunal and even the likes of Eternity but he still possessed his infinite reality warping powers.

-- Secret Wars --
The Beyonder was the sum total of a pocket dimension called the Beyond-Realm or simply "Beyond", hence the name "Beyonder". This dimension was accidentally accessed by nebbish lab technician Owen Reece. Part of the energy from the dimension escaped and imbued Reece with near-infinite powers, which he wielded as the villainous Molecule Man - potentially one of the most powerful villains in the Universe. The remaining energy of the pocket dimension apparently gained sentience and curiosity. Using its vast powers, the Beyonder created a planet called "Battleworld" out of pieces of various planets (one such piece being a suburb of Denver) and abducted a number of superheroes and super-villains from Earth so that he could observe the never-ending battle between good and evil that rages within humanity at large.

In initially explaining the nature of the experiment to the involuntary participants, the entity identified itself only as "I am from beyond." The name "Beyonder" was quickly applied by Galactus and adopted by all others present. Galactus, sensing that the Beyonder could alleviate his perpetual hunger, immediately and aggressively charged into the Beyond-Realm through a dimensional rift, followed by Doctor Doom, who sought power for his own purposes. Both were repelled, but the information gathered by Doom later enabled him to use the body of the sound-based villain Klaw as a medium to steal the energies of Galactus' Worldship and then the power of the Beyonder itself. With the Beyonder's power, Doom constructed a 200-mile high tower of golden stone as temporary quarters, and then stated that he had given up his ambitions for conquest, instead simply being content with freeing his mother's soul from Mephisto. The Beyonder's consciousness then possessed Klaw's damaged mind, and manipulated Doom into unconsciously squandering his power against the superheroes, distracting him enough for the Beyonder to steal his power back.

-- Secret Wars II --
Intrigued by what he had witnessed during the first Secret Wars, the Beyonder came to Earth to walk among humans and study them and learn of human desire firsthand. He created a human body for himself; originally this body resembled an amalgam of parts of various superbeings. He then changed it to one based on that of Captain America, but he later patterned his hairstyle and wardrobe after Michael Jackson's look as Captain Eo.

On a train to New York, Beyonder met the mutant known as Boom Boom. Thinking he was a mutant, Boom Boom accompanied him. The Beyonder abandoned her but returned and took her to Xavier's school. At the school, Tabitha was terrified when the teams of the X-Men and the New Mutants fought the Beyonder. The Beyonder took her to a planet where the Celestials were located. There, threatening to destroy the universe, the Beyonder fought and seemingly defeated a number of Celestials. (However, that planet was not truly the Celestials' headquarters, and the Celestials allowed the Beyonder to "defeat" them, presumably in order to observe him in action.) Fearful of the battle taking place between the Beyonder and the Celestials, Tabitha demanded to be returned to Earth. Back on Earth, Boom Boom alerted the Avengers about the Beyonder. Summoning the Beyonder, Boom Boom thereby led him into an ambush by the Avengers and other costumed champions. The Beyonder, who had regarded Boom Boom as his only friend, allowed the Avengers to defeat him, but then left. Boom Boom left during the battle.

His complete lack of understanding of human biology and society led to numerous difficult situations, some serious and some humorous. For instance, he needed to learn by example the difference between edible objects and non-edible ones, and needed to be toilet-trained by Spider-Man. When he learned about the monetary system from a homeless woman and Luke Cage, the Hero for Hire, he transformed a Manhattan office building into gold as thanks for their assistance. He later became the head of a criminal cartel and then used mind control to assume control over the entire Earth, only to relinquish control when he grew restless and frustrated with the lack of free will that the world now displayed. He had a brief love affair with the musician Dazzler, and, when pondering his place and needs in the universe, accidentally inspired a cult of meditators. His body was destroyed, or nearly destroyed, several times over, although each time he would repair it with his powers.

Throughout the course of the series, the demon Mephisto sought to steal his powers or to destroy him to win the favor of Death. The Beyonder ultimately died when he tried to create for himself a mortal human body that could retain his omnipotence; although he was on the verge of succeeding, he was killed in the process by the Molecule Man. The Beyonder's near-limitless power was returned to the now-empty "Beyond-Realm", where it formed a Big Bang and created a new universe (this was initially presented as being the New Universe in which the line of comics of the same name were set, but this idea seems to have later been set aside along with the New Universe itself).

-- Kosmos & Maker --
The characters learned that the energy which comprised the Beyonder and the energy that gave the Molecule Man his powers needed to be combined in order to create the basis for a mentally stable, mature nigh-omnipotent being to be born. This being, called Kosmos, expelled the Molecule Man from her form, and returned him to Earth. Kosmos took on female form and tutored under Kubik. When the Molecule Man's lover, Volcana, left him, Owen Reece got angry, extracted the Beyonder from Kosmos and proceeded to attack him, until Kubik intervened.

At some unknown point, Kosmos went mad and assumed a mortal form, now calling itself the Maker. After the Maker destroyed a Shi'ar colony, the Imperial Guard managed to imprison it in the interstellar prison called the Kyln. The Maker's madness took control of several inmates, but was finally subdued by the nihilist Thanos and several of his allies among the prisoners. Thanos confronted the Maker and psychically shut down its mind.

Apparently, Thanos had encountered the Beyonder in the past, but this was never explained, as Thanos was dead at the time of Secret Wars II (of course, one of the Beyonder's many powers included Time Travel as well, so a past meeting with a younger Thanos of Titan would have been entirely possible). Thanos' flashback showed Thanos as a youngster.

-- Beyond! and Annihilation --
This "Beyonder" was once again in command of the patchwork Battleworld, where it would be revealed that he had been collecting various superhumans and pitting them in combat with one another. Eventually, the pool of heroes and villains featured in the mini-series discover that this Beyonder is actually The Stranger, who has been conducting studies of super-humanity through re-creations of the original Secret War.

The former Herald of Galactus, the Fallen One, now under the control of Thanos, is sent to investigate the aftermath of the Kyln's destruction by the Annihilation Wave and ascertain the Maker's fate; the Fallen One soon finds her lifeless form in the rubble. However, given the strange nature of her existence as a Cosmic Cube, as well as the fact the beyonder had stripped himself free from her corpse and its unknown of where he is and he is currently doing.
