Powers/Abilities: Created by the First Firmament, or sentient embodiment of the first universe, the Celestial Destructor is a cosmic-level being who seems focused on wiping out all life, though its will is subject to that of the First Firmament. The Celestial Destructor is a being of epic proportions that glows red energy. Capable of living for billions of years, the Destructor creates smaller versions of itself to act on its behalf. Each of the Servitors possess extreme strength and durability, but are more susceptible to physical harm. Seemingly invulnerable to physical harm, the Destructor can be affected by magic, and has spent much of its existence trapped in another dimension.
Height: Unrevealed (1500'; by approximation)
Weight: Unrevealed (107,000 lbs.; by approximation)
(Ultimates II#6 (fb) - BTS) - Billions of years ago, the First Firmament, the sentient energy of the first universe, grew lonely and brought Celestials and Aspirants into creation. The Aspirants, including the one that would become known as the Celestial Destructor, worshipped the First Firmament, seeking its approval whenever they brought forth new life, whereas the Celestials sought to create and evolve life on their own. A Celestial War broke out which resulted in the First Firmament being shattered into pieces, and the first Multiverse was created with many of the Aspirants being scattered into distant alternate realities. The Celestial Destructor occupied one for billions of years, creating Servitors for itself. Billions of years later, the First Firmament sought to destabilize Eternity, the name for the embodiment of the universe, and it sent the Celestial Destructor back to Earth to destroy reality.
(Civil War II#1 (fb) - BTS) - Ulysses Cain of the Inhumans had a future prediction about the Celestial Destructor coming to Earth from another dimension. He assembled many heroes in time to stop it.
(Civil War II#1) - The Celestial Destructor and its Servitors attacked New York City on Earth, fighting against the Avengers, A-Force, Avengers Unity Division, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Hellstorm, the Inhumans, New Avengers, Scarlet Witch, Shaman, S.H.I.E.L.D., Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, the Ultimates, and the X-Men.
(Civil War II: Choosing Sides#1/2) - Night Thrasher joined the fight against the Servitors and saved civilian Tina.
(Civil War II: Gods of War#1) - Hercules joined the fight against the Servitors.
(Deadpool IV#14) - During the Destructor's attack, the Mercs for Money rescued civilians.
(New Avengers IV#12) - Hulkling used his magic sword, Excelsior, against the Servitors, and Squirrel Girl mourned squirrels that were killed during the fight, including Acorn Annie, Frisky Fred, and Bunco.
(Nova VI#8) - Nova and other heroes saved civilians as the magic-themed heroes prepared a spell, the group spell of Dimensional Reversal from the Book of the Vishanti.
(Civil War II#1) - As the heroes held off the Servitors, the magic users cast a spell that banished the Celestial Destructor back to its home dimension.
