Fictional character biography

Fallen One was the first Herald of the cosmic entity Galactus and is empowered by dark energy, but he is imprisoned by Galactus for his cruelty. The Fallen One escapes and repeatedly attacks Galactus. Star-Lord imprisons the Fallen One in the Kyln, an intergalactic prison. He escapes to attack Galactus again, but is mentally enslaved by Thanos.[1] Fallen One is killed by the Proemial Gods Tenebrous and Aegis.[2]

Powers and abilities

The Fallen One, unlike later Heralds, is granted control of black matter, the "binding halo by which galaxies are made solvent". The character can use this matter to augment strength and durability, project energy, create black holes and pocket dimensions, manipulate time and space, control the electromagnetic spectrum, and transmute matter. The Fallen One is capable of travelling faster than the speed of light and is immune to the rigors of space.


He appears to be related to Champion of the Universe.
