First Appearance: Marvel Team-Up I#55 (March, 1977)

Powers/Abilities: The Gardener does not age and is resistant to conventional injury and disease, able to regenerate from most assaults on his body; allegedly it would take virtual disintegration to prevent his recovery. He can survive in space without life support and can go for prolonged periods without nourishment. He is resistant, if not immune, to the corrupting and soul-stealing abilities of the Soul Gem.
    Additionally, at least in the past, he was denied access to Death's realm, making it impossible for him to die in his native universe; it was believed that he could perish in other dimensions where the Earth-616's universe's Death manifestation did not hold dominion. Due to this, he has recovered even from total disintegration, conversion to energy, and consumption by Galactus, who was unable to digest/absorb his energies.

    The Gardener has dedicated his life to cultivating plants (flowers, fruits, vegetables, trees, vines, etc.), often on barren or devastated worlds. He is a genius in the field of botany and has amassed a knowledge of and skill at botany second to none and has collected billions of types of seeds in his travels. Using his lush cultivation techniques, he can cover a barren Earth-sized planet with lush vegetation within a year.

     He has apparently not developed inherent physical or mental powers beyond his virtual immortality, and has only demonstrated any abilities beyond his longevity while in the possession of an Infinity Gem. He is an inexperienced and unskilled combatant. He generally seeks only the peace of his garden, though he was apparently willing to risk the entire universe in order to assure possession of an Infinity Gem.

    Via Infinity Gems (he has utilized the Time and Souls Gems at different times), the Gardener has developed superhuman abilities to develop and control all plant life, accelerating its growth and animating the plant life to bind or attack others. Though he was initially unaware of the Time Gem's true power, the Gardener nonetheless used it to cause plants to rapidly grow by racing them through their growth cycles, and they bloomed eternally because he frozen them in the moment they reached the zenith of their beauty.
    The gems have also allowed him to project energy blasts (sometimes by drawing on his garden's life force), levitate, travel through space at trans-light speed, form energy force fields, transport objects through space at the speed of thought, communicate telepathically, control primitive life forms (primates and other animals), bring a persona within a dissociative identity disorder victim to fore (such as placing Bruce Banner's mind in control of the Hulk), transporting himself or others to other dimensions (including the Microverse), and even briefly grappling with the Hulk. He has sometimes focused the Infinity Gem's energies through his apparently wooden crooked staff. It is unclear whether he has transported fauna to his gardens or has actually created animals as well; presumably the former.

(Incredible Hulk II#248 (fb) / Silver Surfer III#6 (fb) - BTS) <Approximately 5.5 billion years ago> - The Gardener is one of the Elders of the Universe who were some of the earliest beings to come into existence in Earth's universe and who became immortal at least in part due to their single-minded obsessions. Unable to return to the paradise of creation as he desired, the Gardener began to create his own paradises in the form of verdant gardens and jungles. The Gardener dedicated his life to the creation of natural beauty and mastered control of all plant life.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition#5: Gardener) - The Gardener turned a countless number of barren and seemingly lifeless worlds into fertile, planet-wide gardens.

(Silver Surfer III#6 (fb)) <Approximately 5.5 billion years ago> - The Gardener encountered another Elder, the Obliterator, on an unidentified planet, and the two learned their were other beings like themselves.

(Silver Surfer III#6 (fb) - BTS) - Over the next billion years, the Obliterator apparently located the rest of the Elders.

(Silver Surfer III#6 (fb) - BTS) - Upon learning of the existence of Galactus, who had survived from the previous universe, the Elders resolved to destroy him so that they could replace him as the oldest beings in existence.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition#5: Gardener / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z vol. 5: Infinity Gems) - The Gardener acquired the Infinity Gem of Time, granting him superhuman control of plants and the ability to traverse space without a starship.

(Marvel Team-Up I#55 (fb) - BTS) - The Gardener traveled to the then-barren Blue Area of Earth's moon, using its oxygen rich environment to plant and sow the entire environment with his garden, including populating it with fauna, all of which he then tended to. 

(Marvel Team-Up I#55 (fb)) - All was peaceful until the arrival of the Stranger, who had obtained the Infinity Gem of Power, sought to collect all six known Infinity Gems, and had sensed the Gardener's Infinity Gem of Time. The Gardener recognized as an interstellar traveler in search of something and stayed hidden from him, masking the power emanations that had drawn the Stranger.

(Marvel Team-Up I#55 - BTS) - Adam Warlock brought Spider-Man -- who had been trapped in an unsealed rocket and launched into space -- to the Blue Area of the Moon to recover. There the Stranger attacked Warlock in an effort to steal Warlock's Soul Gem. Warlock and Spider-Man fought the Stranger in return, but both heroes were defeated.

(Marvel Team-Up I#55) - Observing Spider-Man's defeat at the Stranger's hands, the Gardener directed a tree to cushion his fall, though Spider-Man was still stunned unconscious. Upon Spider-Man's recovery, the Gardener introduced himself and explained his garden's origins and his limited knowledge of the Stranger, but then stayed hidden when Spider-Man returned to battle the Stranger. As the Stranger attempted to slay Spider-Man, the Gardener decided he could not let another die in his stead, and he directed his vegetation and even the rocks and soil around it to attack the Stranger; the Stranger sensed the Gardener's telepathic voice, which was attempting to deny him. As the Stranger fought back, the Gardener sensed the pain of his creations which was transmitted to him as well, but he chose to risk his life in defiance. After the Stranger unwittingly freed Warlock while trying to blast Spider-Man, the Gardener directed Warlock to join the Soul Gem's power to the Gardener's gem's if they were to have any hope of surviving battle with the Stranger. They did so, with both drawing from the garden's life force, and they pained the Stranger sufficiently that he decided he did not have time for protracted combat and chose to depart to deal with an urgent situation on Earth (human's accidentally triggering the Null-Life Bomb).
    His garden having died due to its life force's expenditure, the Gardener determined this gem had been corrupted by the battle, claiming that it could no longer support life and was only good as a weapon now.

(Incredible Hulk II#248 (fb) - BTS) - The Gardener abandoned the Time Gem on the moon.

(Marvel Team-Up I#55) - Deciding to seek other, perhaps greener worlds and start again, the Gardener converted into energy and departed for space.

(Avengers Annual#7 - BTS / Silver Surfer III#7 (fb) - BTS) - When Thanos' synthetic "Soul Gem" was destroyed by Iron Man, the Mind, Power Reality, Space, and Time Gems were hurled through hyperspace.

(Silver Surfer III#7 (fb) - BTS) - The Collector learned of the location of one of the Infinity Gems, but was slain by Korvac before he could acquire it.

(Incredible Hulk II#248 (fb)) - After Warlock died battling Thanos and Warlock's Soul Gem was placed on his grave, the Gardener sensed the Soul Gem's emanations and claimed it for himself, restoring his ability to make worlds bloom and considering Warlock's valiant soul at peace in the Gardener's safekeeping.

(Incredible Hulk II#248 (fb) - BTS) - Vowing never again to place the Soul Gem's powers before undeserving humanity and/or to risk his garden for mankind, and seeking a haven of peace, the Gardener traveled to the "Microworld" K'ai, which had been rendered virtually incapable of supporting life after being knocked out of its orbit by force transmitted by the Hulk near its portal into Earth's dimension. Using the Soul Gem, the Gardener created a lush paradise, the Valley of Life, in which he allowed only himself, the flora he created and the fauna he either created or summoned. He allowed the people of K'ai to bring their dead there to be buried but otherwise forbade the living in the Valley, putting up natives' skeletons as warnings to any who approached.

(Incredible Hulk II#247) - Returning to K'ai with the body of his deceased lover, K'ai's former queen Jarella, the Hulk ignored the other K'aitians warning to stay out of the valley and brought Jarella there to bury her, promising to soon bring the other K'aitains there to live. As soon as the Hulk began to dig in the soil, the Gardener directed rocks, tree branches and various native creatures to attack him. After the Hulk drove off all creatures assaulting him, the Gardener then confronted the Hulk, telling him that no other living man besides himself could remain there.

(Incredible Hulk II#248 (fb) - BTS) - The Gardener restrained the Hulk with powerful vines.

(Incredible Hulk II#248) - As he directed a pair of lion-maned simian creatures to take Jarella away for burial, the Gardener touched the Hulk's brow with his staff, bringing Banner's intellect to the fore. After explaining his history, the Gardener departed telling the Hulk to leave and then sending the Valley's creatures to drive the K'aitians from the Valley's periphery; the Gardener considered the Hulk a savage innocent and potentially worthy of living in the Valley, but realized that the K'aitains who considered him their king would then seek admission as well.. The Hulk reverted to Banner's form, and Banner escaped the vines and then went in search of Jarella, but as soon as he took a drink of water, a watery tendril pulled him into the water. Turning back into the Hulk, he dispersed the stream and then located and confronted the Gardener anew. Driving off birds and beasts who attacked him at the Gardener's command, the Hulk inspired the K'aitians to fight back against the creatures trying to drive them off. The Hulk then attacked the Gardener directly, overpowering his haughty opponent, tearing the Gardener's staff from his grip and stripping him of the Soul Gem. The Hulk then hurled the Soul Gem into K'ai's core, restoring the planet's life-supporting properties. Man and beast stopped fighting and befriended each other, and the Hulk buried Jarella in peace. The Gardener then apologized for his selfishness, acknowledged that paradise needs people and asked if he could stay there. The Hulk agreed as long as the Gardener lived in peace, and in return, the Gardener granted the Hulk's wish to return home, sending him back to Earth.

(Silver Surfer III#7 (fb) - BTS) - The Gardener recovered and retained the Soul Gem.

(Thanos Quest#1 (fb) - BTS) - Per his own account, the Gardener joined the Elders in their mad plots solely so he could recover his former Infinity Gem, the Time Gem.

(Marvel Super Hero: Contest of Champions#3 - BTS / Silver Surfer III#7 (fb) - BTS) - Following the Collector's resurrection following the Grandmaster's sacrifice in his stead, the Collector retrieved the Infinity Gem he had sought.

(Silver Surfer III#7 (fb) - BTS) - By defeating the ablest sentients of the planet Grinx,  the Champion obtained their world trophy, another Infinity Gem.

(Silver Surfer III#7 (fb) - BTS) - The Trader traded for two Infinity Gems.

(Secret Wars II#6) - The Gardener was present alongside other cosmic beings such as Eternity, Lord Chaos & Master Order, the Living Tribunal and Uatu the Watcher (or likely Manifestation Bodies of many of these) when they implored the Beyonder to not eliminate Death from existence. They failed to convince him, but the Beyonder soon restored Death upon appreciating the consequences of his actions.
(Quasar#38) - The real Contemplator
glimpsed the above manifestation bodies while passing through the Dimension of Manifestations. The Contemplator wondered why the Gardener would be with such an assemblage (as do we all!).

(Silver Surfer III#3 - BTS) - Champion notified the other Elders (presumably including Gardener) that the Silver Surfer was involving himself in their affairs and must be stopped. The Runner then attacked the Surfer and defeated him, casting him down to a planet where he was found by Mantis.

(Silver Surfer III#4) - The Gardener met with other Elders -- Astronomer, Champion, Collector, Contemplator (actually a Skrull imposter), Grandmaster, Obliterator, Possessor, Runner, Trader -- within Ego. He listened as the Grandmaster revealed how his recent machinations had caused Death to reject the Elders from her realm, meaning they were now unable to die (a scheme he conceived with the Astonomer), and then revealed the next part of the scheme: to slay Galactus, which would allegedly destroy the current universe, allowing the Elders to be reborn in the new universe as the oldest beings in existence; they apparently also believed they would gain vast power from living through the Big Bang.
    Ego then sensed the Silver Surfer and Mantis spying on them, and Ego and the Elders attacked, causing the two trespassers to flee.

(Silver Surfer III#5 - BTS / Silver Surfer III#7 (fb) - BTS) - The Elders sent the Obliterator to destroy the Silver Surfer and Mantis.

(Silver Surfer III#7 (fb) - BTS) - The Contemplator (imposter) was sent to retrieve the Mind Gem from the Supreme Intelligence, who was using it to stabilize the Blue and Pink Kree minds making it up, who would otherwise be warring against each other.

(Silver Surfer III#6 (fb) - BTS) - The Elders arranged to next meet on Earth, since Galactus had pledged to avoid Earth after some of its heroes had saved his life. Meeting on the night of the Autumnal Equinox, they would first test the weapon they would use against Galactus.

(Silver Surfer III#7) - As the Elders (minus Contemplator/imposter and Obliterator) met in a lush forest in Earth's Tropical Zone, Mantis was reborn in Earth via her plant powers and spied on them. The Gardener announced that their plot to destroy Galactus could be accomplished once they had obtained all six Infinity Gems, after which he commanded the lush vegetation to capture Mantis, overriding even Mantis' affinity for plant-life in her current form. As she fell, Mantis sent a psychic summons across the universe to Shalla Bal.

(Silver Surfer III#8) - The Gardener intercepted a cosmic energy transmission from Shalla Bal to Mantis, then confronted Shalla Bal, noting both women were weeds to be plucked.

(Silver Surfer III#9 (fb) - BTS) - The Gardener apparently took Shalla Bal prisoner and brought her to the other Elders, then placed her in an energy sphere alongside Mantis.

(Silver Surfer III#9 (fb) - BTS) - Mantis nearly pushed herself into a stroke trying to escape the prison, but the Gardener kept her contained.

(Silver Surfer III#9) - The Elders -- Astronomer, Champion, Collector, Contemplator (imposter), Gardener, Grandmaster, Possessor, Runner, Trader -- met on a space platform near the Cone Nebula. The Gardener contacted the Surfer and told him to meet them there, delivering the Mind Gem to them or Mantis and Shalla Bal would pay the price. After Shalla and Mantis warned the Surfer not to give the Elders the final Infinity Gem, the Surfer tried to break them free, but the Gardener's Soul Gem operated at the speed of thought, keeping them away from him. The Surfer then surrendered the Mind Gem, and the Gardener (per Grandmaster's order) sent the women's energy sphere flying across space and commanded it to explode on his touch. Moving at extreme speed, the Surfer realized he'd be unable to rescue both women and tried to save Mantis, but saved Shalla instead.
    Meanwhile, simulating Nova (Frankie Raye)'s signal flare, the Elders summoned Galactus to their space platform, which utilized six planets to drain Galactus' biospheric power into the planets. When Nova tried to stop them, they struck her down with the Gems' power. As Galactus began to dissipate, the Surfer struck their beam obliquely, reflecting it away from Galactus, then directed Nova to destroy the sun supporting the six planets. She did so, causing the sun to collapse into a black hole. Galactus reached his ship's controls, restored his own power and recovered Nova, the Surfer, and Champion, Collector, Gardener, Grandmaster, and Runner before they could fall into the black hole, though the Infinity Gems were all lost into the hole.

(Silver Surfer III#10 (fb) - BTS) - While the Contemplator (imposter) escaped somehow, Trader, Possessor, and Astronomer were pulled into the black hole. Champion, Collector, Gardener, Grandmaster, and Runner were captured by Galactus.

(Silver Surfer III#10) - After the Gardener pointed out the Collector's frequent defeats at the hands of the Avengers, Galactus converted Champion, Collector, Gardener, Grandmaster, and Runner into energy and consumed them. Galactus subsequently noted some discomfort and realized the Elders would be difficult to absorb.

(Silver Surfer III#17) - Unable to die, the Elders reformed within Galactus and began to attack him from within.

(Silver Surfer Annual#1/2 - BTS) - Galactus collapsed, unable to digest the Elders who were destroying him from within. Galactus sent Nova to get the Silver Surfer and Reed and Sue Richards to help him.

(Silver Surfer III#15 - BTS) - After the Surfer arrived with the Richardses (including Franklin), Galactus instructed them to enter the black hole and retrieve the Infinity Gems so they could be used to remove the Elders' immortal souls, leaving their bodies inert/harmless. He cautioned them to have Sue surround the gems with her force field because if any of them touched the Soul Gem it would steal his or her soul.
    Within the black hole, her mind influenced by Lord Chaos into her Malice persona, Sue Richards incapacitated the Silver Surfer and traded him to the Trader in exchange for the six Infinity Gems.

(Silver Surfer III#16 - BTS) - Via control over the Soul Gem, the In-Betweener took the souls of both Reed and Sue Richards and used them to reform himself before returning their souls. The In-Betweener then confronted the Surfer (whose freedom Reed had arranged via the In-Betweener's subconscious influence).

(Silver Surfer III#17) - Revealing his alliance with the Astronomer, Possessor and Trader, the In-Betweener, then traveled with them to Earth's universe. The In-Betweener attempted to obliterate Galactus with an energy blast but found that as Galactus was unique, he had no opposite that the In-Betweener could counterbalance against him. When the In-Betweener decided to cast Galactus into the black hole to eliminate him from the universe, the Elders threatened to use their Infinity Gems against him so that the Elders within Galactus would not share his fate. In response, the In-Betweener summoned Death and forced her to slay the Astronomer, Possessor and Trader.
    As the Gardener noted how impressed he was with the Grandmaster's strategy and gamesmanship, Lord Chaos and Master Order, at the Surfer's request (in exchange for returning the In-Betweener to them) caused Galactus to disgorge the Elders within him.

(Silver Surfer III#18 (fb) - BTS) - Lord Chaos and Master Order returned Galactus, the Surfer, the Richardses, and the Champion, Collector, Gardener, Grandmaster, and Runner to their native universe.

(Silver Surfer III#18) - The Gardener noted that upon their departure from Lord Chaos and Master Order's realm that they were now free of their control. Champion, Collector, Gardener, Grandmaster, and Runner observed the battle between Galactus and the In-Betweener. The Gardener noted that the In-Betweener could have them destroyed as well as their lost brethren. Disbelieving Death being forced to do anything, the Grandmaster discouraged the others from interfering with the conflict, though the Gardener feared he was risking all their lives. Ultimately, the Champion incapacitated the Grandmaster while the other Elders added their Infinity Gems power to the Surfer's own to push the battling titans into the realm of Lord Chaos and Master Order, where those two reclaimed the In-Betweener (still in possession of the Soul Gem) as their prisoner. The two cosmic beings then cast the others from their realm.

(Silver Surfer III#19) - Champion, Collector, Gardener, Grandmaster, and Runner used their Infinity Gems to depart to elsewhere in the universe via hyperspace.

(Thanos Quest#1 (fb) - BTS) - Having recovered the Time Gem, the Gardener was content to develop the most beautiful garden in the universe.

(Thanos Quest#1) - Content in cultivating his garden, the Gardener was confronted by Thanos, who sought to gather the six Infinity Gems for himself. Though aware of Thanos' intent, the Gardener was intrigued to learn Thanos appreciated the garden's beauty, and the two briefly wandered the garden in peace. After the Gardener revealed why he had worked with the Elders in the past, Thanos brought the reason for his visit to the fore. Knowing Thanos already had two Infinity Gems (Soul and Power) and was far more powerful, the Gardener nonetheless refused to simply surrender his gem. He bound Thanos in vines, but Thanos broke free and then accelerated the Time Gem's power via the Power Gem, amplifying the Gardener's plant growing abilities beyond his abilities to control and causing his entire body to overrun with woody plant growth.

(Amazing Spider-Man II#62//503 - BTS) - The Gardener apparently recovered (perhaps via his own abilities or due to Death's ongoing prevention of his death) and regained the Time Gem again at some point (or perhaps he sensed Morwen across time via the Time Gem).

(Amazing Spider-Man II#62//503) - While enjoying a pair of flowers, the Gardener apparently sensed as Morwen, First Sorceress of Chaos, returned to Earth and took as a host Tess Black, the daughter of the Asgardian trickster god, Loki.




(Deadpool Corps#1) - After the Contemplator enlisted the Deadpool Corps (Deadpool-616/"Wade Wilson," Dogpool-103173, Headpool-2149, Kidpool-10330, Lady Deadpool-3010) to stop an unidentified cosmic entity that was consuming the life forces of inhabitants of whole planets, the Champion challenged them to combat to prove their worth, but they trapped him on an uninhabited world. Shortly thereafter, the Gardener appeared before the Champion and teleported him to confront the Deadpool Corps anew. Gardener (wearing a red gem on his forehead) brought them to a bar on a world where they stopped to refuel, where Deadpool and Lady Deadpool were having some drinks. Champion punched Deadpool and Lady Deadpool across the room, and the Gardener noted he wasn't impressed with the Contemplator's champions. Deadpool sent Lady Deadpool away while he returned with Dogpool.

(Deadpool Corps#2) - Deadpool asked who the Gardener was and then laughed at his name. When Dogpool futilely bit Champion's face, the annoyed Gardener urged Champion to stomp Deadpool. Realizing he couldn't hope to combat the Champion, Deadpool instead convinced him to join and lead the Deadpool Corps as Championpool, during which time Deadpool, Champion, Gardener and the women remaining at the bar drank themselves unconscious. Recovering with a hangover and traveling with Champion and the Corps to the Corps' ship, Gardener tried to explain his powers and motivations to Kidpool, who mocked him as lame. Deciding that, with Champion by their side, the Corps might be the right ones for the job, Gardener teleported away to consider the matter further and to consult with the other Elders. Soon after, the Corps tricked Champion into flying his craft to another abandoned planet, telling him there was an alien race (servants of their foe) who had a warrior that wanted to challenge one of them to ritual combat; they only left enough fuel in the Champion's craft to get him to the planet, and he was stranded there.




(Contest of Champions III#6 (fb) - BTS) - Following the defeat of God Doom and the subsequent omniversal reconstruction, Gardener and the other Elders of the Universe became aware of Battlerealm, the former, broken "Secret Wars" reality at the edge of spacetime.

(Contest of Champions III#6 (fb) ) - The Elders traveled to Battlerealm and visited the husk of the old Battleworld where they still sensed an immense source of power waiting to be claimed (the recently formed ISO-8). All the Elders immediately lusted after it, ready to follow the path of their individual obsessions to claim it. The Gardener called for patience and told Runner to smell the roses. In the end they all agreed to the Grandmaster's proposal of deciding through a contest of champions. All twelve of them would get to pick a champion from the new multiverse to fight in their stead, with Grandmaster already selecting Maestro (Bruce Banner) who they found alive and defiant in the ruins of Battleworld.

(Contest of Champions III#6 (fb) - BTS) - Gardener picked a champion, who lost in the battle at Arcade's Killiseum.




Comments: Created by Bill Mantlo, John Byrne, and Dave Hunt.

    Up until the prelude to the Infinity Gauntlet, all six Infinity Gems were known as "Soul Gems."

    The Tropical Zone is the part of the Earth's surface closest to the equator, between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn; characterized by a hot climate - so either southern Central America, northern and central South America, central Africa, southern Asia, or northern Australia:
