The Largest Mega-Sentients In The Entire UniverseEdit

Are you ashamed of your size? You should be! Compared to Ego The Living Planet or Unicron the planet who turns into a giant robot, you're not only puny and tiny, you're kind of dumb as well. If there's one thing that science fiction teaches us, it's that you need a sun-sized brain to think truly cosmic thoughts. (And to eat other planets for lunch, too.) But which life form in scifi is the hugest (and therefore the smartest)? We've got the answer.

Note: I was almost done compiling this list when I came across this helpful post from Lev Grossman at Time.com, and its equally helpful comments. (Although the person who thought the ship in Farscape was called "Moira" cracked me up.)

Mogo the Green Lantern planet, from Green Lantern. Created by Alan Moore in his classic "Mogo Doesn't Socialize" short comic strip, Mogo is a whole planet wearing a green-lantern ring and defending the galaxy against wrongdoers. He's been brought back in recent issues of Green Lantern Corps. and has actually managed to communicate with the otherLanterns, despite the whole "not socializing" thing. How does he travel around? How does he defend all the planets in his sector of the galaxy? It's not clear to me, but here are some more details, including a link to scans of his first appearance



Ego The Living Planet, from Thor and various other Marvel Comics. Which sentient planet is bigger, Ego or Mogo? It's hard to say. But I'm going to come down on the side of Ego being more awesome, because he cruises around and acts sleazy — as in one of his most recent appearances, where he falls in love with Earth and tries to seduce the entire planet (which has become sentient). In a smackdown between Ego and Mogo, my money is on Ego, even though Mogo has the magic alien ring. You know Ego would fight dirty, because everything he does is dirty.

The Beast With A Billion Backs from Futurama, "The Beast With A Billion Backs." The second direct-to-DVD Futurama movie involves our heroes contacting another universe, and then they encounter a planet-sized tentacle monster, voiced by David Cross. And Fry becomes pope of a new religion. (There are also planet-sized creautres in Tarkovsky's Solaris and in the GWAR mythos.( Here's the trailer.

Unicron from Transformers. We can only hope Michael Bay tries to take on this concept at some point — a mechanical planet who transforms into a humongous giant robot in space. And then he goes around eating other planets. In his first appearance, he was voiced by Orson Welles. I love how, in his planet form, he has giant metal horns sticking out. Party on, Unicron. But could he beat the planet-eating Galactus?

Gaea from John Varley's Titan. A planet-sized entity orbiting Saturn, Gaea is a "sentient space habitat that may or may not be batshit insane," as Bookslut puts it. The controlling intelligence of Gaea presents itself as a middle-aged woman who's obsessed with classic movies. In the second book of the Gaea trilogy, she offers miracle cures to humans whom she deems worthy, and in the third she provides a refuge for humans fleeing Earth's nuclear war.

Marvin The Paranoid Android, from The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Well, he's always reminding us his brain is the size of a planet, although we never actually see this mega-brain.

Solaris, The Tyrant Sun, from DC One Million. The "One Million" event, in which the Justice League traveled forward to the 853rd century to meet their curiously similar counterparts, was probably the 17th most demented thing Grant Morrison has written, and that's saying something. A giant artificial sun, Solaris causes his own creation in the late 20th century (thanks to a time-travel paradox) and then becomes one of Superman's arch-enemies. Finally, in the 500th century, Solaris becomes a good guy, but never quite gets over his jealousy of our solar system's "real" sun. So he plots to kill the original Superman, in a plot involving a galactic super-Olympics. To be honest, I've read this comic three times and still don't understand it.

Evil Nebula, from Captain Simian And The Space Monkeys. Half-human, half-black hole, Lord Nebula could run over Mogo and Ego and barely even notice. And the Evil Nebula thinks big — in the first episode, he decides he wants to absorb the entire universe into himself. ("It's an ego thing.") But he's not too big to come up with a monkey enemy for Captain Simian, the vicious Rhesus-2. Plus he's voiced by Michael Dorn, which is full of win.

The Behemothaurs from Iain M. Banks' Look To Windward (2000). Lev Grossman suggests these in his blog post. And StrangeHorizons describes them as "miles-long symboitic gasbags." They live in a massive drifting weightless

The Cloud, from The Black Cloud by Sir Fred Hoyle. In this classic 1957 novel, a Jupiter-sized interstellar cloud floats into our solar system and threatens all life on Earth. Scientists struggle to communicate with the Cloud — and they succeed. It turns out the Cloud has a "brain" made out of complex networks of molecules. And the Cloud turns out to be sort of size-ist towards poor limited humans:

[I]t is most unusual to find animals with technical skills inhabiting planets, which are in the nature of extreme outposts of life... Living on the surface of a solid body, you are exposed to a strong gravitational force. This greatly limits the size to which your animals can grow and hence limits the scope of your neurological activity.

Eventually the Cloud has a mishap and decides to leave our solar system, before we can learn from its ageless wisdom about the universe. But not before it's like "There was no Big Bang, kthxbai."


The spaceship-eating amoeba, from Star Trek, "The Immunity Syndrome." An 11,000 mile single-celled creature, this huge but pretty monster has to be destroyed before it reproduces and eats the entire galaxy. There's also an episode of the Trek animated series, "One Of Our Planets Is Missing," where they go inside a similar huge creature that's draining their power and munching on planets. But in that case, Spock manages to communicate with the creature, which is another one of those size-ist jumbo sentients and doesn't believe that such tiny creatures as ourselves could be intelligent. You could also make a case that the massive planet-crusher in "The Doomsday Weapon" is sentient, although it's never made clear. And another giant Trek baddie, of course, is the "crystalline entity" who stars in some of the most boring TNG episodes. Oh, and then there's V'Ger from The Motion Picture.

Jane from the Ender's Game saga by Orson Scott Card. An artificial intelligence, Jane occupies the entire galactic ansible network and is the only one who can make faster-than-light travel possible. Her one weakness is that when the Galactic Congress shuts down the galaxy-wide internet, she shuts down too.

The Calebans, from Frank Herbert's Dosadi Experiment and Whipping Star. Huge, unimaginably advanced creatures, the Calebans manifest themselves as stars in our universe. They give humans the secret of the "jump door," which allows you to teleport anywhere in space instantaneously. As Timothy O'Reilly writes: [T]he Calebans are as close to infinite beings as he can imagine. Their visible embodiments are stars, and on a deeper level the Calebans are one gigantic consciousness that forms the topological matrix of the manifest universe. The jump-doors are simply an expression of their pervasive existence behind or apart from space.The Calebans are super-advanced, but they have one weakness: they can't break a contract. Thus, one Caleban allows a psychotic human to torture it to death, which spells death for anyone who's ever used a jump-gate. Probably the best argument for contract-law reform ever. Despite this pitfall, the Calebans are the biggest and brilliantest life forms in scifi.

Evil Nebula, from Captain Simian And The Space Monkeys. Half-human, half-black hole, Lord Nebula could run over Mogo and Ego and barely even notice. And the Evil Nebula thinks big — in the first episode, he decides he wants to absorb the entire universe into himself. ("It's an ego thing.") But he's not too big to come up with a monkey enemy for Captain Simian, the vicious Rhesus-2. Plus he's voiced by Michael Dorn, which is full of win.

Jeff Parker, who wrote an issue in which Ego attempts to mate with the Earth, described how the idea came to him, saying that "it was so clear to me that I called Nate Cosby and just told it to him, describing things like seeing the Moon by itself in space while Ego assumed Earth was a single mother with a shortie - and he's cool with that."

Fictional character biographyEdit

Like all celestial bodies, Ego condensed from gas and dust in the "Black Galaxy" to become a planet. For reasons unknown, however, this particular planet achieved sentience and the ability to move of its own volition. Ego then began absorbing space vessels and even other worlds to survive, planning interstellar conquest. It was this behavior that attracts the attention of the RigellianRigellians (Marvel Comics)The Rigellians, also known as the Colonizers of Rigel, are a scientifically and technologically advanced alien race in the fictional Marvel Comics Universe, devoted towards amassing an empire via colonization. They are native to Rigel-3 the third planet orbiting the star Rigel in the Milky Way Galaxy...  Colonizers, who fear that the nearby Ego will consume their home-world.

A well-meaning Rigellian took a sample of Ego's form, in the hope that this could be used to fertilize sterile worlds being considered for habitation. This act drives Ego insane, and it soon gives in to its primordial urges and absorbs the Wanderers, which causes Thor to side with a returning Galactus. Assisted by ally Hercules

Richard confronts Worldmind about Ego, which reveals that Ego's consciousness has been supplanted, effectively making Ego the new host of Worldmind. Calling itself Nu Xandar, Worldmind tells Richard that he must download the Nova Force into Nu Xandar's power reserves so that it may be spread out throughout the Nova Corps. After some initial hesitation Richard agrees but backs out at the last minute which ended with Worldmind forcefully removing the Nova Force from Richard and returns him to Earth without his powers.

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness.

When the universe first came into existence, one planet developed differently from all others, gradually evolving over millions of years to possess intelligence and consciousness.  This planet became known as Ego, the Living Planet (an account that Ego was once a mortal whose essence was bonded with an entire planet has been proven false).  The entire sector of space within which Ego dwelt was a "bio-verse," teeming with life, but Ego was the only sentient creature known to exist.  This area was dubbed the "Black Galaxy" by the Colonizers of Rigel, who lost several ships in attempts to explore the region.

Fearful that Ego would emerge from the Black Galaxy and devour their nearby planet, the Rigellians attempted to colonize Earth. They were opposed by Thor, and explained their dilemma to him. Thor journeyed into the Black Galaxy to meet Ego, who was fascinated to meet a being from outside his space, and engaged Thor in battle so that it could test itself against other powers with its "anti-body" creations. Ego intended to send its anti-bodies out to conquer other worlds, but Thor summoned power from his father Odin and generated a powerful storm that stunned Ego. Forced to surrender to Thor, Ego vowed it would not leave the Black Galaxy.

Months later, the planet-devouring cosmic being Galactus invaded Ego's space, seeking to replenish his own energy by consuming Ego, who drove Galactus off with the aid of Thor. In gratitude toward Thor, Ego allowed its surface to become the new home of the Wanderers, surviving members of the Archeopian extraterrestrial race whose planet had been the first devoured by Galactus billions of years ago.

The Rigellian colonizer Tana Nile took a sample of Ego and bonded it to the planet "Blackworld", hoping that it might aid the Rigellians in terraforming new worlds. Instead, Blackworld spawned Ego-Prime, who bore some of the power of Ego itself, and could dramatically accelerate evolution. Ego-Prime sought to transform Earth to resemble Ego so that it could become a part of the bio-verse, but its energies were stolen by Jason Kimball, Carter Dyam, and Chi Lo, three of the mortals chosen to serve in the Young Gods. Ego-Prime's energy allowed their latent abilities to manifest, and the weakened Ego-Prime was taken prisoner by the Stranger, who stored it within his laboratory world.

Driven insane by the removal of Tana Nile's sample, Ego devoured the Wanderers. Desperate for energy, Galactus again tried to devour Ego, but was outmatched and forced to flee. Recognizing that Ego had gone insane, Galactus dispatched his herald Firelord, Thor, and Hercules against Ego. While those three battled Ego, Galactus constructed a thruster and attached it to Ego's south pole, forcing the planet to be constantly driven through space, unable to threaten inhabited worlds.

As Ego was propelled through space, it began to decay from lack of sunlight, but gained control over the thruster. Seeking revenge on Galactus, Ego headed for Earth, which Galactus had recently visited. Ego's arrival in the Solar system caused massive upheaval on Earth as tremors shook the world, but a man possessing the near-infinite reality-altering power named L.R. "Skip" Collins exhausted his abilities to repair the damage Ego had done. The Fantastic Four confronted Ego in space, and Mr Fantastic had the Thing remove an engine from Ego's thruster. The Thing descended within Ego and hurled the engine into Ego's brain, but it had little effect. Angered, Ego tried to fire the thruster again in an attempt to destroy Earth. Ego was thrown off course by the missing engine, caught in the sun's gravitation pull, and torn apart.

However, Ego's consciousness still existed in every remaining portion of itself, and exposure to the sun's energy helped revive it. Ego gradually rebuilt itself and reclaimed and repaired the thruster. Seeking new energy for itself, Ego would disguise itself as an idyllic paradise-like sphere to lure space travelers into landing upon it. A party of Dire Wraiths fell for Ego's trap and set up a base on its surface. When they fought the Spaceknights Seeker and Scanner, Ego pulled them all beneath its surface to being digestion. however, Rom the Spaceknight came to his comrades' rescue and force Ego to release them by threatening to fire his Neutralizer into Ego's brain. The Dire Wraiths were sent to Limbo by Rom before Ego could consume them.

Ego became an ally of the Elders of the Universe, who accepted Ego into their ranks because it was the only creature of its kind, just as the Elders were each the last survivor of their species. Ego served as the Elders' mobile base of operations, and fought the Silver Surfer on their behalf, attempting to consume the Surfer's energies, but the Surfer seized control of Ego's thruster and threatened to steer it into a sun, forcing Ego to release him. Ego later encountered the Korbinite fleet, led by Beta Ray Bill, and attacked them, destroying several ships. When Ego revealed to Bill that it was being driven mad by Galactus' thruster, Bill had the fleet destroyer the thruster. In gratitude, Ego offered to make itself the Korbinites' new home, but Bill refused, suspicious of Ego and knowing that the Korbinite would resent Ego for having killed some of them. Bill left Ego deserted.

The enigmatic Celestials had transformed the Black Galaxy into a new member of their race, and this Celestial made contact with Ego. The High Evolutionary investigated this, and as Ego was being consumed by an immense "Super-Ego," speculated that Ego might actually be a single manifestation of a larger being, and that more than one Ego may exist. More Celestials came to examine Ego's dilemma, but how Ego escaped the Super-Ego is unknown.

As part of a complicated ploy to reestablish the Kree Empire, the Supreme Intelligence took control of Ego and sent it out to assault other worlds, attempting to "awaken" them with its energies so that those worlds would become sentient. Ego destroyed the homeworld of the Krylorains in its rampage, and the incident heightened tensions among the extraterrestrial races making up the Intergalactic Council. The Silver Surfer, Professor X, and Cadre K prevented it from destroying the Shi'ar throneworld, but the Supreme Intelligence arranged Ego's seeming destruction before they could discern its purpose.

The Supreme Intelligence had his agents compact Ego's essence and send it to Earth, as the Intergalactic Council determined to make Earth a penal colony, and were in the process of sending many of their worst offenders there. Ego's essence was found within a crashed rocket by a pair of senile farmers from Nebraska who thought they had saved a "space baby." Ego began to spread itself across Earth, and manifestations of it engaged many of Earth's heroes. As Ego began to consume the planet, the Supreme Intelligence tapped into Ego's power with conduits, and siphoned it to the Kree so that they could use Ego's power. The Silver Surfer attempted to halt Ego's infestation, but could not meet the challenge fully. Quasar (Wendell Vaughn) finally halted Ego by absorbing it into the Quantum Zone from which he drew his power. Ego was contained, but was in danger of escaping containment at any time. Quasar exiled himself into space to prevent Ego from infecting Earth again.

Recently, Ego was among the beings who assaulted Thanos while he possessed the Heart of the Infinite. How Ego escaped the Quantum Zone has not been chronicled.

Within the Black Galaxy, one mass developed differently from the others. Evolving over millions of years, it grew to the size of a planet and developed intelligence and consciousness along with the ability to move its planet-sized mass by its own will. This planet became known as "Ego, the Living Planet". In its evolution, Ego developed organ-like masses under its surface, one of which is similar to a brain. As all sentient beings, Ego began to plan what its role in the universe would be.Ego’s first plot involved an interstellar conquest, which only led him to a confrontation with [ Thor], the God of Thunder, and the Recorder. Fleeing Ego, the Rigellians attempted to colonize Earth. Opposed by Thor, they explained their dilemma to him. Thor journeyed into the Black Galaxy to meet Ego. Ego, fascinated to meet a being from outside his space, engaged Thor in battle so that it could test its "anti-body" creations. Thor ravaged Ego’s surface with severe storms that caused the massive entity to be stunned. After Ego was defeated, it abandoned its plans for interstellar attack and vowed not to leave the Black Galaxy.

The next time Ego encountered the mighty Thor was during a battle with Galactus. Galactus had just recently consumed a world that had been home to the Wanderers, surviving members of an Archeopian extraterrestrial race. Thor decided that Galactus was the bigger threat and he took Ego’s side against the world devourer. In gratitude, Ego allowed its surface to become the new home of Wanderers.

A portion of Ego’s mass was taken by the Rigellian colonizer Tana Nile who hoped that it could transform other uninhabitable worlds into worlds where life could flourish. In an unforeseen event, the piece of Ego gained its own consciousness and called itself Ego-Prime. Ego-Prime eventually made its way to Earth, which it sought to transform to resemble itself. In combat with Thor, Ego-Prime's energies were stolen and used to empower three mortals that would become members of the Young Gods. The weakened Ego-Prime was taken prisoner by the Stranger, who stored it within his laboratory world.

Driven insane by the removal of Tana Nile's sample, Ego devoured the Wanderers. Desperate for energy, Galactus again tried to devour Ego, but was outmatched and forced to flee. Recognizing the Ego had gone insane, Galactus dispatched his herald Firelord, Thor, and Hercules against Ego. To win the fight, Galactus attached a self-designed sidereal propulsion unit to the south pole of Ego, forcing the planet to be driven through space, away from the populated areas of the universe. However, Ego gained control over the thruster. Seeking revenge on Galactus, Ego traveled to Earth, but instead found opposition in the Fantastic Four. Mister Fantastic directed the Thing to sabotage Ego's sidereal propulsion unit, which Ego could not seem to remove from its body. Ego was broken apart by the gravitational pull of the sun when the engine failed.

However, Ego's consciousness still existed in every remaining portion of itself. Ego gradually reformed itself and repaired the damage done to the propulsion unit. Ego expended much of its energy in doing so and had to bring its energy reserves back up. Disguising itself as an idyllic, paradise-like sphere, it lured a party of Dire Wraiths to establish a base on its surface. Ego then absorbed them into his being in order to replenish his energy. But, ROM landed on Ego, seeking fellow Space Knights trapped within the planet along with the Dire Wraiths, and battled the living planet. Rom saved his fellow Space Knights and sent the Dire Wraiths to Limbo before Ego could consume them.

Ego then allied himself with the Elders of the Universe claiming to be one himself. He allowed the Elders to even meet on its surface to discuss their plans. However, Ego is not the sole survivor of a particular race that was dedicated to one specific pursuit, so he did not qualify for membership. Still, it joined in their plot against Galactus and battled the Silver Surfer, eventually capturing and attempting to absorb the power cosmic of the former herald. But, the Surfer seized control of the thruster and threatened to steer Ego into the sun, ensuring his release.

Ego later encountered the Korbinite fleet, led by Beta Ray Bill, and attacked them, destroying several ships. When Ego revealed to Bill that it was being driven mad by Galactus' thruster, Bill had the fleet destroy the thruster. Ego offered to make itself the Korbinites' new home, but Bill refused, suspicious of Ego and knowing that the Korbinites would resent Ego for having killed some of them. Bill left Ego deserted.

The enigmatic Celestials had transformed the Black Galaxy into a new member of their race, and this Celestial made contact with Ego. The High Evolutionary investigated this, and as Ego was being consumed by an immense "Super-Ego", speculated that Ego might be a single manifestation of a larger being, and that more than one Ego may exist. More Celestials came to examine Ego's dilemma, but how Ego escaped the Super-Ego is unknown.

Ego began searching for worlds that he could "wake up," so it would not be alone in the universe. If Ego could not wake a planet, it would deem it unworthy and destroy it regardless of the life forms that may have lived on the surface. Charles Xavier led a group of Skrulls to Ego in order to stop its actions, and with the assistance of the Silver Surfer, they almost succeeded in halting its insane plan. Xavier looked into the mind of Ego and found madness, which immediately told him that Ego could not be reasoned with. He decided that he would have to shut Ego's mind down, and as he began the process, a starship belonging to the alien race, the Ruul, intervened and shocked Ego into unconsciousness. This was going on at a time when an interplanetary council was deciding the fate of the Earth and ultimately declared it a prison planet for all alien criminals, including Ego.

The Ruul somehow managed to manipulate Ego's mass into a human sized vessel, but once on Earth, Ego started to expand. The heroes of Earth knew they only had a small amount of time to get Ego off the planet before it absorbed everything into itself. During the course of an investigation, U.S.Agent discovered that the Ruul were actually evolved members of the Kree race and had manipulated the interplanetary council for their own purposes. They had placed power conduits all over the Earth, so that once Ego expanded fully (which they knew would happen) and absorbed the Earth, they would take control of Ego and use its massive power for universal conquest. The Ruul, along with Ronan the Accuser, freed the Supreme Intelligence from captivity so that they would have a leader once more. Unfortunately for the Ruul, their plans would fail as Reed Richards created a device that enabled Quasar to absorb Ego into himself. With Ego gone and the council now aware of how they were tricked, the decision to make Earth a prison planet was reversed and the Ruul were defeated. Quasar, not wanting to endanger the Earth in case Ego escaped, decided that he would go into exile.

Recently, Ego was among the beings who assaulted Thanos while he possessed the Heart of the Infinite. How Ego escaped from within Quasar has not been chronicled. [3][4]Ego demands retribution for having been violated by the Nova CorpsRecently, the Xandarian Worldmind implemented its control over Ego's consciousness and took it for the new headquarters of the Nova Corps. Ego has been dubbed Nu-Xandar, and is currently occupying the same orbit as Earth with a gravimetric field around it as to not cause major destruction upon the planet. When the war between the Kree and Shi'ar broke out, Worldmind took Ego away from Earth in an attempt to stop the conflict, but not before stripping Nova of his powers. Quasar helped the de-powered Nova reach Nu-Xandar with the use of his Quantum Bands. Upon reaching his destination, Nova discovered it was actually Ego who was taking control of Worldmind, so Nova lobotomized the Living Planet, leaving Worldmind free of its influence. The Nova Corps continued to use the catatonic Ego as their base until the Inhumans unwittingly created a massive hole in the universe with a bomb meant to obliterate their Shi'ar enemies. A spacecraft, the Resolute Duty, emerged after an absence of thirty-five years, and it brought with it the means to free Ego. A bounty hunter called [http://marvel.com/universe/Monark_Starstalker


Monark Starstalker] damaged Worldmind's systems, enabling Ego to repair himself quicker and reassert control over his body. The Nova Corps needed to evacuate fast, but aboard the Resolute Duty there was another battle raging. Mindless Ones had followed the ship through The Fault with the intention of liberating their captured leader. Nova had Worldmind create a portal to transport the Mindless Ones and their leader inside Ego's brain, giving him a more immediate threat than the Corps to attend to. Ego was forced to flee when Zan Philo, captain of the Resolute Duty, turned the ship's massive energy cannon's on him. Even though the Nova Corps triumphed that day, Worldmind was certain they'd cross paths with Ego again.Retrieved from "http://marvel.com/universe/Ego"Ego the Living Planet is a fictional extraterrestrialExtraterrestrial life in popular cultureIn popular cultures, life forms —especially intelligent life forms— that are of extraterrestrial origin, i.e. not coming from the Earth are referred to collectively as aliens....

Like all celestial bodies, Ego condensed from gas and dust in the "Black Galaxy" to become a planet. For reasons unknown, however, this particular planet achieved sentience and the ability to move of its own volition. Ego then began absorbing space vessels and even other worlds to survive, planning interstellar conquest. It was this behavior that attracts the attention of the RigellianRigellians (Marvel Comics)The Rigellians, also known as the Colonizers of Rigel, are a scientifically and technologically advanced alien race in the fictional Marvel Comics Universe, devoted towards amassing an empire via colonization. They are native to Rigel-3 the third planet orbiting the star Rigel in the Milky Way Galaxy...  Colonizers, who fear that the nearby Ego will consume their home-world.

A well-meaning Rigellian took a sample of Ego's form, in the hope that this could be used to fertilize sterile worlds being considered for habitation. This act drives Ego insane, and it soon gives in to its primordial urges and absorbs the Wanderers, which causes Thor to side with a returning Galactus.

The threat of Ego appears to have ended, however with Quasar's death during Annihilation, Ego was released in the Universe, only to be approached by the Worldmind to join the new Nova Corps. Richard confronts Worldmind about Ego, which reveals that Ego's consciousness has been supplanted, effectively making Ego the new host of Worldmind. Calling itself Nu Xandar, Worldmind tells Richard that he must download the Nova Force into Nu Xandar's power reserves so that it may be spread out throughout the Nova Corps. After some initial hesitation Richard agrees but backs out at the last minute which ended with Worldmind forcefully removing the Nova Force from Richard and returns him to Earth without his powers.

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

Abilities Ego possesses knowledge over alien technology that is far more advanced than that of the Earth's

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

[5]Within the Black Galaxy, one mass developed differently from the others. Evolving over millions of years, it grew to the size of a planet and developed intelligence and consciousness along with the ability to move its planet-sized mass by its own will. This planet became known as "Ego, the Living Planet". In its evolution, Ego developed organ-like masses under its surface, one of which is similar to a brain. As all sentient beings, Ego began to plan what its role in the universe would be.Ego’s first plot involved an interstellar conquest, which only led him to a confrontation with Thor, the God of Thunder, and the Recorder. Fleeing Ego, the Rigellians attempted to colonize Earth. Opposed by Thor, they explained their dilemma to him. Thor journeyed into the Black Galaxy to meet Ego. Ego, fascinated to meet a being from outside his space, engaged Thor in battle so that it could test its "anti-body" creations. Thor ravaged Ego’s surface with severe storms that caused the massive entity to be stunned. After Ego was defeated, it abandoned its plans for interstellar attack and vowed not to leave the Black Galaxy.

The next time Ego encountered the mighty Thor was during a battle with Galactus. Galactus had just recently consumed a world that had been home to the Wanderers, surviving members of an Archeopian extraterrestrial race. Thor decided that Galactus was the bigger threat and he took Ego’s side against the world devourer. In gratitude, Ego allowed its surface to become the new home of Wanderers.

A portion of Ego’s mass was taken by the Rigellian colonizer Tana Nile who hoped that it could transform other uninhabitable worlds into worlds where life could flourish. In an unforeseen event, the piece of Ego gained its own consciousness and called itself Ego-Prime. Ego-Prime eventually made its way to Earth, which it sought to transform to resemble itself. In combat with Thor, Ego-Prime's energies were stolen and used to empower three mortals that would become members of the Young Gods. The weakened Ego-Prime was taken prisoner by the Stranger, who stored it within his laboratory world.

Driven insane by the removal of Tana Nile's sample, Ego devoured the Wanderers. Desperate for energy, Galactus again tried to devour Ego, but was outmatched and forced to flee. Recognizing the Ego had gone insane, Galactus dispatched his herald Firelord, Thor, and Hercules against Ego. To win the fight, Galactus attached a self-designed sidereal propulsion unit to the south pole of Ego, forcing the planet to be driven through space, away from the populated areas of the universe. However, Ego gained control over the thruster. Seeking revenge on Galactus, Ego traveled to Earth, but instead found opposition in the Fantastic Four. Mister Fantastic directed the Thing to sabotage Ego's sidereal propulsion unit, which Ego could not seem to remove from its body. Ego was broken apart by the gravitational pull of the sun when the engine failed.

However, Ego's consciousness still existed in every remaining portion of itself. Ego gradually reformed itself and repaired the damage done to the propulsion unit. Ego expended much of its energy in doing so and had to bring its energy reserves back up. Disguising itself as an idyllic, paradise-like sphere, it lured a party of Dire Wraiths to establish a base on its surface. Ego then absorbed them into his being in order to replenish his energy. But, ROM landed on Ego, seeking fellow Space Knights trapped within the planet along with the Dire Wraiths, and battled the living planet. Rom saved his fellow Space Knights and sent the Dire Wraiths to Limbo before Ego could consume them.

Ego then allied himself with the Elders of the Universe claiming to be one himself. He allowed the Elders to even meet on its surface to discuss their plans. However, Ego is not the sole survivor of a particular race that was dedicated to one specific pursuit, so he did not qualify for membership. Still, it joined in their plot against Galactus and battled the Silver Surfer, eventually capturing and attempting to absorb the power cosmic of the former herald. But, the Surfer seized control of the thruster and threatened to steer Ego into the sun, ensuring his release.

Ego later encountered the Korbinite fleet, led by Beta Ray Bill, and attacked them, destroying several ships. When Ego revealed to Bill that it was being driven mad by Galactus' thruster, Bill had the fleet destroy the thruster. Ego offered to make itself the Korbinites' new home, but Bill refused, suspicious of Ego and knowing that the Korbinites would resent Ego for having killed some of them. Bill left Ego deserted.

The enigmatic Celestials had transformed the Black Galaxy into a new member of their race, and this Celestial made contact with Ego. The High Evolutionary investigated this, and as Ego was being consumed by an immense "Super-Ego", speculated that Ego might be a single manifestation of a larger being, and that more than one Ego may exist. More Celestials came to examine Ego's dilemma, but how Ego escaped the Super-Ego is unknown.

Ego began searching for worlds that he could "wake up," so it would not be alone in the universe. If Ego could not wake a planet, it would deem it unworthy and destroy it regardless of the life forms that may have lived on the surface. Charles Xavier led a group of Skrulls to Ego in order to stop its actions, and with the assistance of the Silver Surfer, they almost succeeded in halting its insane plan. Xavier looked into the mind of Ego and found madness, which immediately told him that Ego could not be reasoned with. He decided that he would have to shut Ego's mind down, and as he began the process, a starship belonging to the alien race, the Ruul, intervened and shocked Ego into unconsciousness. This was going on at a time when an interplanetary council was deciding the fate of the Earth and ultimately declared it a prison planet for all alien criminals, including Ego.

The Ruul somehow managed to manipulate Ego's mass into a human sized vessel, but once on Earth, Ego started to expand. The heroes of Earth knew they only had a small amount of time to get Ego off the planet before it absorbed everything into itself. During the course of an investigation, U.S.Agent discovered that the Ruul were actually evolved members of the Kree race and had manipulated the interplanetary council for their own purposes. They had placed power conduits all over the Earth, so that once Ego expanded fully (which they knew would happen) and absorbed the Earth, they would take control of Ego and use its massive power for universal conquest. The Ruul, along with Ronan the Accuser, freed the Supreme Intelligence from captivity so that they would have a leader once more. Unfortunately for the Ruul, their plans would fail as Reed Richards created a device that enabled Quasar to absorb Ego into himself. With Ego gone and the council now aware of how they were tricked, the decision to make Earth a prison planet was reversed and the Ruul were defeated. Quasar, not wanting to endanger the Earth in case Ego escaped, decided that he would go into exile.

Recently, Ego was among the beings who assaulted Thanos while he possessed the Heart of the Infinite. How Ego escaped from within Quasar has not been chronicled. [6][7]Ego demands retribution for having been violated by the Nova CorpsRecently, the Xandarian Worldmind implemented its control over Ego's consciousness and took it for the new headquarters of the Nova Corps. Ego has been dubbed Nu-Xandar, and is currently occupying the same orbit as Earth with a gravimetric field around it as to not cause major destruction upon the planet. When the war between the Kree and Shi'ar broke out, Worldmind took Ego away from Earth in an attempt to stop the conflict, but not before stripping Nova of his powers. Quasar helped the de-powered Nova reach Nu-Xandar with the use of his Quantum Bands. Upon reaching his destination, Nova discovered it was actually Ego who was taking control of Worldmind, so Nova lobotomized the Living Planet, leaving Worldmind free of its influence. The Nova Corps continued to use the catatonic Ego as their base until the Inhumans unwittingly created a massive hole in the universe with a bomb meant to obliterate their Shi'ar enemies. A spacecraft, the Resolute Duty, emerged after an absence of thirty-five years, and it brought with it the means to free Ego. A bounty hunter called Monark Starstalker damaged Worldmind's systems, enabling Ego to repair himself quicker and reassert control over his body. The Nova Corps needed to evacuate fast, but aboard the Resolute Duty there was another battle raging. Mindless Ones had followed the ship through The Fault with the intention of liberating their captured leader. Nova had Worldmind create a portal to transport the Mindless Ones and their leader inside Ego's brain, giving him a more immediate threat than the Corps to attend to. Ego was forced to flee when Zan Philo, captain of the Resolute Duty, turned the ship's massive energy cannon's on him. Even though the Nova Corps triumphed that day, Worldmind was certain they'd cross paths with Ego again.Retrieved from "http://marvel.com/universe/Ego" Discussion{| cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); border-right: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); border-bottom: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);" width="100%"

Fictional character biographyEdit

Like all celestial bodies, Ego condensed from gas and dust in the "Black Galaxy" to become a planet. For reasons unknown, however, this particular planet achieved sentience and the ability to move of its own volition. Ego then began absorbing space vessels and even other worlds to survive, planning interstellar conquest. It was this behavior that attracts the attention of the Rigellian

Thor aids Ego in battling Galactus, and generates a massive God Blast that drives Galactus off. In gratitude Ego allows its surface to become the new home of the Wanderers, a race whose planet had been the very first to be devoured by Galactus billions of years ago.

A well-meaning Rigellian took a sample of Ego's form, in the hope that this could be used to fertilize sterile worlds being considered for habitation.

Calling itself Nu Xandar, Worldmind tells Richard that he must download the Nova Force into Nu Xandar's power reserves so that it may be spread out throughout the Nova Corps. After some initial hesitation Richard agrees but backs out at the last minute which ended with Worldmind forcefully removing the Nova Force from Richard and returns him to Earth without his powers.

The Largest Mega-Sentients In The Entire UniverseEdit

Are you ashamed of your size? You should be! Compared to Ego The Living Planet or Unicron the planet who turns into a giant robot, you're not only puny and tiny, you're kind of dumb as well. If there's one thing that science fiction teaches us, it's that you need a sun-sized brain to think truly cosmic thoughts. (And to eat other planets for lunch, too.) But which life form in scifi is the hugest (and therefore the smartest)? We've got the answer.

Note: I was almost done compiling this list when I came across this helpful post from Lev Grossman at Time.com, and its equally helpful comments. (Although the person who thought the ship in Farscape was called "Moira" cracked me up.)

Mogo the Green Lantern planet, from Green Lantern. Created by Alan Moore in his classic "Mogo Doesn't Socialize" short comic strip, Mogo is a whole planet wearing a green-lantern ring and defending the galaxy against wrongdoers. He's been brought back in recent issues of Green Lantern Corps. and has actually managed to communicate with the otherLanterns, despite the whole "not socializing" thing. How does he travel around? How does he defend all the planets in his sector of the galaxy? It's not clear to me, but here are some more details, including a link to scans of his first appearance.

Ego The Living Planet, from Thor and various other Marvel Comics. Which sentient planet is bigger, Ego or Mogo? It's hard to say. But I'm going to come down on the side of Ego being more awesome, because he cruises around and acts sleazy — as in one of his most recent appearances, where he falls in love with Earth and tries to seduce the entire planet (which has become sentient). In a smackdown between Ego and Mogo, my money is on Ego, even though Mogo has the magic alien ring. You know Ego would fight dirty, because everything he does is dirty.

The Beast With A Billion Backs from Futurama, "The Beast With A Billion Backs." The second direct-to-DVD Futurama movie involves our heroes contacting another universe, and then they encounter a planet-sized tentacle monster, voiced by David Cross. And Fry becomes pope of a new religion. (There are also planet-sized creautres in Tarkovsky's Solaris and in the GWAR mythos.( Here's the trailer.

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

Abilities Ego possesses knowledge over alien technology that is far more advanced than that of the Earth's

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

Abilities Ego possesses knowledge over alien technology that is far more advanced than that of the Earth's

[9]Within the Black Galaxy, one mass developed differently from the others. Evolving over millions of years, it grew to the size of a planet and developed intelligence and consciousness along with the ability to move its planet-sized mass by its own will. This planet became known as "Ego, the Living Planet". In its evolution, Ego developed organ-like masses under its surface, one of which is similar to a brain. As all sentient beings, Ego began to plan what its role in the universe would be.Ego’s first plot involved an interstellar conquest, which only led him to a confrontation with Thor, the God of Thunder, and the Recorder. Fleeing Ego, the Rigellians attempted to colonize Earth. Opposed by Thor, they explained their dilemma to him. Thor journeyed into the Black Galaxy to meet Ego. Ego, fascinated to meet a being from outside his space, engaged Thor in battle so that it could test its "anti-body" creations. Thor ravaged Ego’s surface with severe storms that caused the massive entity to be stunned. After Ego was defeated, it abandoned its plans for interstellar attack and vowed not to leave the Black Galaxy.

The next time Ego encountered the mighty Thor was during a battle with Galactus. Galactus had just recently consumed a world that had been home to the Wanderers, surviving members of an Archeopian extraterrestrial race. Thor decided that Galactus was the bigger threat and he took Ego’s side against the world devourer. In gratitude, Ego allowed its surface to become the new home of Wanderers.

A portion of Ego’s mass was taken by the Rigellian colonizer Tana Nile who hoped that it could transform other uninhabitable worlds into worlds where life could flourish. In an unforeseen event, the piece of Ego gained its own consciousness and called itself Ego-Prime. Ego-Prime eventually made its way to Earth, which it sought to transform to resemble itself. In combat with Thor, Ego-Prime's energies were stolen and used to empower three mortals that would become members of the Young Gods. The weakened Ego-Prime was taken prisoner by the Stranger, who stored it within his laboratory world.

Driven insane by the removal of Tana Nile's sample, Ego devoured the Wanderers. Desperate for energy, Galactus again tried to devour Ego, but was outmatched and forced to flee. Recognizing the Ego had gone insane, Galactus dispatched his herald Firelord, Thor, and Hercules against Ego. To win the fight, Galactus attached a self-designed sidereal propulsion unit to the south pole of Ego, forcing the planet to be driven through space, away from the populated areas of the universe. However, Ego gained control over the thruster. Seeking revenge on Galactus, Ego traveled to Earth, but instead found opposition in the Fantastic Four. Mister Fantastic directed the Thing to sabotage Ego's sidereal propulsion unit, which Ego could not seem to remove from its body. Ego was broken apart by the gravitational pull of the sun when the engine failed.

However, Ego's consciousness still existed in every remaining portion of itself. Ego gradually reformed itself and repaired the damage done to the propulsion unit. Ego expended much of its energy in doing so and had to bring its energy reserves back up. Disguising itself as an idyllic, paradise-like sphere, it lured a party of Dire Wraiths to establish a base on its surface. Ego then absorbed them into his being in order to replenish his energy. But, ROM landed on Ego, seeking fellow Space Knights trapped within the planet along with the Dire Wraiths, and battled the living planet. Rom saved his fellow Space Knights and sent the Dire Wraiths to Limbo before Ego could consume them.

Ego then allied himself with the Elders of the Universe claiming to be one himself. He allowed the Elders to even meet on its surface to discuss their plans. However, Ego is not the sole survivor of a particular race that was dedicated to one specific pursuit, so he did not qualify for membership. Still, it joined in their plot against Galactus and battled the Silver Surfer, eventually capturing and attempting to absorb the power cosmic of the former herald. But, the Surfer seized control of the thruster and threatened to steer Ego into the sun, ensuring his release.

Ego later encountered the Korbinite fleet, led by Beta Ray Bill, and attacked them, destroying several ships. When Ego revealed to Bill that it was being driven mad by Galactus' thruster, Bill had the fleet destroy the thruster. Ego offered to make itself the Korbinites' new home, but Bill refused, suspicious of Ego and knowing that the Korbinites would resent Ego for having killed some of them. Bill left Ego deserted.

The enigmatic Celestials had transformed the Black Galaxy into a new member of their race, and this Celestial made contact with Ego. The High Evolutionary investigated this, and as Ego was being consumed by an immense "Super-Ego", speculated that Ego might be a single manifestation of a larger being, and that more than one Ego may exist. More Celestials came to examine Ego's dilemma, but how Ego escaped the Super-Ego is unknown.

Ego began searching for worlds that he could "wake up," so it would not be alone in the universe. If Ego could not wake a planet, it would deem it unworthy and destroy it regardless of the life forms that may have lived on the surface. Charles Xavier led a group of Skrulls to Ego in order to stop its actions, and with the assistance of the Silver Surfer, they almost succeeded in halting its insane plan. Xavier looked into the mind of Ego and found madness, which immediately told him that Ego could not be reasoned with. He decided that he would have to shut Ego's mind down, and as he began the process, a starship belonging to the alien race, the Ruul, intervened and shocked Ego into unconsciousness. This was going on at a time when an interplanetary council was deciding the fate of the Earth and ultimately declared it a prison planet for all alien criminals, including Ego.

The Ruul somehow managed to manipulate Ego's mass into a human sized vessel, but once on Earth, Ego started to expand. The heroes of Earth knew they only had a small amount of time to get Ego off the planet before it absorbed everything into itself. During the course of an investigation, U.S.Agent discovered that the Ruul were actually evolved members of the Kree race and had manipulated the interplanetary council for their own purposes. They had placed power conduits all over the Earth, so that once Ego expanded fully (which they knew would happen) and absorbed the Earth, they would take control of Ego and use its massive power for universal conquest. The Ruul, along with Ronan the Accuser, freed the Supreme Intelligence from captivity so that they would have a leader once more. Unfortunately for the Ruul, their plans would fail as Reed Richards created a device that enabled Quasar to absorb Ego into himself. With Ego gone and the council now aware of how they were tricked, the decision to make Earth a prison planet was reversed and the Ruul were defeated. Quasar, not wanting to endanger the Earth in case Ego escaped, decided that he would go into exile.

Recently, Ego was among the beings who assaulted Thanos while he possessed the Heart of the Infinite. How Ego escaped from within Quasar has not been chronicled. [10][11]Ego demands retribution for having been violated by the Nova CorpsRecently, the Xandarian Worldmind implemented its control over Ego's consciousness and took it for the new headquarters of the Nova Corps. Ego has been dubbed Nu-Xandar, and is currently occupying the same orbit as Earth with a gravimetric field around it as to not cause major destruction upon the planet. When the war between the Kree and Shi'ar broke out, Worldmind took Ego away from Earth in an attempt to stop the conflict, but not before stripping Nova of his powers. Quasar helped the de-powered Nova reach Nu-Xandar with the use of his Quantum Bands. Upon reaching his destination, Nova discovered it was actually Ego who was taking control of Worldmind, so Nova lobotomized the Living Planet, leaving Worldmind free of its influence. The Nova Corps continued to use the catatonic Ego as their base until the Inhumans unwittingly created a massive hole in the universe with a bomb meant to obliterate their Shi'ar enemies. A spacecraft, the Resolute Duty, emerged after an absence of thirty-five years, and it brought with it the means to free Ego. A bounty hunter called Monark Starstalker damaged Worldmind's systems, enabling Ego to repair himself quicker and reassert control over his body. The Nova Corps needed to evacuate fast, but aboard the Resolute Duty there was another battle raging. Mindless Ones had followed the ship through The Fault with the intention of liberating their captured leader. Nova had Worldmind create a portal to transport the Mindless Ones and their leader inside Ego's brain, giving him a more immediate threat than the Corps to attend to. Ego was forced to flee when Zan Philo, captain of the Resolute Duty, turned the ship's massive energy cannon's on him. Even though the Nova Corps triumphed that day, Worldmind was certain they'd cross paths with Ego again.Retrieved from "http://marvel.com/universe/Ego"Ego the Living Planet is a fictional extraterrestrialExtraterrestrial life in popular cultureIn popular cultures, life forms —especially intelligent life forms— that are of extraterrestrial origin, i.e. not coming from the Earth are referred to collectively as aliens....  being that appears in comic books published by Marvel ComicsMarvel ComicsMarvel Publishing, Inc., a company doing business as Marvel Comics, produces American comic books and related media.

Fictional character biographyEdit

Like all celestial bodies, Ego condensed from gas and dust in the "Black Galaxy" to become a planet. For reasons unknown, however, this particular planet achieved sentience and the ability to move of its own volition. Ego then began absorbing space vessels and even other worlds to survive, planning interstellar conquest. It was this behavior that attracts the attention of the RigellianRigellians (Marvel Comics)The Rigellians, also known as the Colonizers of Rigel, are a scientifically and technologically advanced alien race in the fictional Marvel Comics Universe, devoted towards amassing an empire via colonization.

A well-meaning Rigellian took a sample of Ego's form, in the hope that this could be used to fertilize sterile worlds being considered for habitation. This act drives Ego insane, and it soon gives in to its primordial urges and absorbs the Wanderers, which causes Thor to side with a returning Galactus.

The threat of Ego appears to have ended, however with Quasar's death during Annihilation, Ego was released in the Universe, only to be approached by the Worldmind to join the new Nova Corps. Richard confronts Worldmind about Ego, which reveals that Ego's consciousness has been supplanted, effectively making Ego the new host of Worldmind. Calling itself Nu Xandar, Worldmind tells Richard that he must download the Nova Force into Nu Xandar's power reserves so that it may be spread out throughout the Nova Corps. After some initial hesitation Richard agrees but backs out at the last minute which ended with Worldmind forcefully removing the Nova Force from Richard and returns him to Earth without his powers.

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

Abilities Ego possesses knowledge over alien technology that is far more advanced than that of the Earth's

[13]Within the Black Galaxy, one mass developed differently from the others. Evolving over millions of years, it grew to the size of a planet and developed intelligence and consciousness along with the ability to move its planet-sized mass by its own will. This planet became known as "Ego, the Living Planet". In its evolution, Ego developed organ-like masses under its surface, one of which is similar to a brain. As all sentient beings, Ego began to plan what its role in the universe would be.Ego’s first plot involved an interstellar conquest, which only led him to a confrontation with Thor, the God of Thunder, and the Recorder. Fleeing Ego, the Rigellians attempted to colonize Earth. Opposed by Thor, they explained their dilemma to him. Thor journeyed into the Black Galaxy to meet Ego. Ego, fascinated to meet a being from outside his space, engaged Thor in battle so that it could test its "anti-body" creations. Thor ravaged Ego’s surface with severe storms that caused the massive entity to be stunned. After Ego was defeated, it abandoned its plans for interstellar attack and vowed not to leave the Black Galaxy.

The next time Ego encountered the mighty Thor was during a battle with Galactus. Galactus had just recently consumed a world that had been home to the Wanderers, surviving members of an Archeopian extraterrestrial race. Thor decided that Galactus was the bigger threat and he took Ego’s side against the world devourer. In gratitude, Ego allowed its surface to become the new home of Wanderers.

A portion of Ego’s mass was taken by the Rigellian colonizer Tana Nile who hoped that it could transform other uninhabitable worlds into worlds where life could flourish. In an unforeseen event, the piece of Ego gained its own consciousness and called itself Ego-Prime. Ego-Prime eventually made its way to Earth, which it sought to transform to resemble itself. In combat with Thor, Ego-Prime's energies were stolen and used to empower three mortals that would become members of the Young Gods. The weakened Ego-Prime was taken prisoner by the Stranger, who stored it within his laboratory world.

Driven insane by the removal of Tana Nile's sample, Ego devoured the Wanderers. Desperate for energy, Galactus again tried to devour Ego, but was outmatched and forced to flee. Recognizing the Ego had gone insane, Galactus dispatched his herald Firelord, Thor, and Hercules against Ego. To win the fight, Galactus attached a self-designed sidereal propulsion unit to the south pole of Ego, forcing the planet to be driven through space, away from the populated areas of the universe. However, Ego gained control over the thruster. Seeking revenge on Galactus, Ego traveled to Earth, but instead found opposition in the Fantastic Four. Mister Fantastic directed the Thing to sabotage Ego's sidereal propulsion unit, which Ego could not seem to remove from its body. Ego was broken apart by the gravitational pull of the sun when the engine failed.

However, Ego's consciousness still existed in every remaining portion of itself. Ego gradually reformed itself and repaired the damage done to the propulsion unit. Ego expended much of its energy in doing so and had to bring its energy reserves back up. Disguising itself as an idyllic, paradise-like sphere, it lured a party of Dire Wraiths to establish a base on its surface. Ego then absorbed them into his being in order to replenish his energy. But, ROM landed on Ego, seeking fellow Space Knights trapped within the planet along with the Dire Wraiths, and battled the living planet. Rom saved his fellow Space Knights and sent the Dire Wraiths to Limbo before Ego could consume them.

Ego then allied himself with the Elders of the Universe claiming to be one himself. He allowed the Elders to even meet on its surface to discuss their plans. However, Ego is not the sole survivor of a particular race that was dedicated to one specific pursuit, so he did not qualify for membership. Still, it joined in their plot against Galactus and battled the Silver Surfer, eventually capturing and attempting to absorb the power cosmic of the former herald. But, the Surfer seized control of the thruster and threatened to steer Ego into the sun, ensuring his release.

Ego later encountered the Korbinite fleet, led by Beta Ray Bill, and attacked them, destroying several ships. When Ego revealed to Bill that it was being driven mad by Galactus' thruster, Bill had the fleet destroy the thruster. Ego offered to make itself the Korbinites' new home, but Bill refused, suspicious of Ego and knowing that the Korbinites would resent Ego for having killed some of them. Bill left Ego deserted.

The enigmatic Celestials had transformed the Black Galaxy into a new member of their race, and this Celestial made contact with Ego. The High Evolutionary investigated this, and as Ego was being consumed by an immense "Super-Ego", speculated that Ego might be a single manifestation of a larger being, and that more than one Ego may exist. More Celestials came to examine Ego's dilemma, but how Ego escaped the Super-Ego is unknown.

Ego began searching for worlds that he could "wake up," so it would not be alone in the universe. If Ego could not wake a planet, it would deem it unworthy and destroy it regardless of the life forms that may have lived on the surface. Charles Xavier led a group of Skrulls to Ego in order to stop its actions, and with the assistance of the Silver Surfer, they almost succeeded in halting its insane plan. Xavier looked into the mind of Ego and found madness, which immediately told him that Ego could not be reasoned with. He decided that he would have to shut Ego's mind down, and as he began the process, a starship belonging to the alien race, the Ruul, intervened and shocked Ego into unconsciousness. This was going on at a time when an interplanetary council was deciding the fate of the Earth and ultimately declared it a prison planet for all alien criminals, including Ego.

The Ruul somehow managed to manipulate Ego's mass into a human sized vessel, but once on Earth, Ego started to expand. The heroes of Earth knew they only had a small amount of time to get Ego off the planet before it absorbed everything into itself. During the course of an investigation, U.S.Agent discovered that the Ruul were actually evolved members of the Kree race and had manipulated the interplanetary council for their own purposes. They had placed power conduits all over the Earth, so that once Ego expanded fully (which they knew would happen) and absorbed the Earth, they would take control of Ego and use its massive power for universal conquest. The Ruul, along with Ronan the Accuser, freed the Supreme Intelligence from captivity so that they would have a leader once more. Unfortunately for the Ruul, their plans would fail as Reed Richards created a device that enabled Quasar to absorb Ego into himself. With Ego gone and the council now aware of how they were tricked, the decision to make Earth a prison planet was reversed and the Ruul were defeated. Quasar, not wanting to endanger the Earth in case Ego escaped, decided that he would go into exile.

Recently, Ego was among the beings who assaulted Thanos while he possessed the Heart of the Infinite. How Ego escaped from within Quasar has not been chronicled. [14][15]Ego demands retribution for having been violated by the Nova CorpsRecently, the Xandarian Worldmind implemented its control over Ego's consciousness and took it for the new headquarters of the Nova Corps. Ego has been dubbed Nu-Xandar, and is currently occupying the same orbit as Earth with a gravimetric field around it as to not cause major destruction upon the planet. When the war between the Kree and Shi'ar broke out, Worldmind took Ego away from Earth in an attempt to stop the conflict, but not before stripping Nova of his powers. Quasar helped the de-powered Nova reach Nu-Xandar with the use of his Quantum Bands. Upon reaching his destination, Nova discovered it was actually Ego who was taking control of Worldmind, so Nova lobotomized the Living Planet, leaving Worldmind free of its influence. The Nova Corps continued to use the catatonic Ego as their base until the Inhumans unwittingly created a massive hole in the universe with a bomb meant to obliterate their Shi'ar enemies. A spacecraft, the Resolute Duty, emerged after an absence of thirty-five years, and it brought with it the means to free Ego. A bounty hunter called Monark Starstalker damaged Worldmind's systems, enabling Ego to repair himself quicker and reassert control over his body. The Nova Corps needed to evacuate fast, but aboard the Resolute Duty there was another battle raging. Mindless Ones had followed the ship through The Fault with the intention of liberating their captured leader. Nova had Worldmind create a portal to transport the Mindless Ones and their leader inside Ego's brain, giving him a more immediate threat than the Corps to attend to. Ego was forced to flee when Zan Philo, captain of the Resolute Duty, turned the ship's massive energy cannon's on him. Even though the Nova Corps triumphed that day, Worldmind was certain they'd cross paths with Ego again.Retrieved from "http://marvel.com/universe/Ego" ==Powers and abilities==

Ego is exceptionally intelligent, although as its name suggests, it harbors an extreme superiority complex and can be emotional if thwarted. Ego is propelled through space via the engine Galactus implanted on it and can travel at faster than light speeds (for unknown reasons, Ego is unable to remove the powerful propulsion unit placed at its south pole). Ego has total control over its entire mass down to the molecular level; it often shapes its surface into the appearance of a gigantic face to address powerful beings, and can also shape its terrain to suit the circumstances. It is able to use its own substance to extrude tentacles, organic sensors, plant-like growth, and to create humanoid vessels for its consciousness. It can shape its surface to appear as a dead inhospitable world, or into an idyllic, lush green paradise to lure unaware space travelers to its surface, which it promptly consumes. Ego possesses various internal features analogous to a living organism, such as gigantic tunnels that have been compared to arteries, and a gigantic brain-like organ deep below its surface. Ego possesses both digestive organs, which it uses when absorbing living beings, and an immune system with which to create powerful antibodies to destroy beings which resist absorption. It also possesses vast psionic abilities, and can project blasts powerful enough to destroy other worlds.

Fictional character biographyEdit

Like all celestial bodies, Ego condensed from gas and dust in the "Black Galaxy" to become a planet. For reasons unknown, however, this particular planet achieved sentience and the ability to move of its own volition. Ego then began absorbing space vessels and even other worlds to survive, planning interstellar conquest. It was this behavior that attracts the attention of the RigellianRigellians (Marvel Comics)The Rigellians, also known as the Colonizers of Rigel, are a scientifically and technologically advanced alien race in the fictional Marvel Comics Universe, devoted towards amassing an empire via colonization.

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

Abilities Ego possesses knowledge over alien technology that is far more advanced than that of the Earth's

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

Abilities Ego possesses knowledge over alien technology that is far more advanced than that of the Earth's

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

Abilities Ego possesses knowledge over alien technology that is far more advanced than that of the Earth's

[17]Within the Black Galaxy, one mass developed differently from the others. Evolving over millions of years, it grew to the size of a planet and developed intelligence and consciousness along with the ability to move its planet-sized mass by its own will. This planet became known as "Ego, the Living Planet". In its evolution, Ego developed organ-like masses under its surface, one of which is similar to a brain. As all sentient beings, Ego began to plan what its role in the universe would be.Ego’s first plot involved an interstellar conquest, which only led him to a confrontation with Thor, the God of Thunder, and the Recorder. Fleeing Ego, the Rigellians attempted to colonize Earth. Opposed by Thor, they explained their dilemma to him. Thor journeyed into the Black Galaxy to meet Ego. Ego, fascinated to meet a being from outside his space, engaged Thor in battle so that it could test its "anti-body" creations. Thor ravaged Ego’s surface with severe storms that caused the massive entity to be stunned. After Ego was defeated, it abandoned its plans for interstellar attack and vowed not to leave the Black Galaxy.

The next time Ego encountered the mighty Thor was during a battle with Galactus. Galactus had just recently consumed a world that had been home to the Wanderers, surviving members of an Archeopian extraterrestrial race. Thor decided that Galactus was the bigger threat and he took Ego’s side against the world devourer. In gratitude, Ego allowed its surface to become the new home of Wanderers.

A portion of Ego’s mass was taken by the Rigellian colonizer Tana Nile who hoped that it could transform other uninhabitable worlds into worlds where life could flourish. In an unforeseen event, the piece of Ego gained its own consciousness and called itself Ego-Prime. Ego-Prime eventually made its way to Earth, which it sought to transform to resemble itself. In combat with Thor, Ego-Prime's energies were stolen and used to empower three mortals that would become members of the Young Gods. The weakened Ego-Prime was taken prisoner by the Stranger, who stored it within his laboratory world.

Driven insane by the removal of Tana Nile's sample, Ego devoured the Wanderers. Desperate for energy, Galactus again tried to devour Ego, but was outmatched and forced to flee. Recognizing the Ego had gone insane, Galactus dispatched his herald Firelord, Thor, and Hercules against Ego. To win the fight, Galactus attached a self-designed sidereal propulsion unit to the south pole of Ego, forcing the planet to be driven through space, away from the populated areas of the universe. However, Ego gained control over the thruster. Seeking revenge on Galactus, Ego traveled to Earth, but instead found opposition in the Fantastic Four. Mister Fantastic directed the Thing to sabotage Ego's sidereal propulsion unit, which Ego could not seem to remove from its body. Ego was broken apart by the gravitational pull of the sun when the engine failed.

However, Ego's consciousness still existed in every remaining portion of itself. Ego gradually reformed itself and repaired the damage done to the propulsion unit. Ego expended much of its energy in doing so and had to bring its energy reserves back up. Disguising itself as an idyllic, paradise-like sphere, it lured a party of Dire Wraiths to establish a base on its surface. Ego then absorbed them into his being in order to replenish his energy. But, ROM landed on Ego, seeking fellow Space Knights trapped within the planet along with the Dire Wraiths, and battled the living planet. Rom saved his fellow Space Knights and sent the Dire Wraiths to Limbo before Ego could consume them.

Ego then allied himself with the Elders of the Universe claiming to be one himself. He allowed the Elders to even meet on its surface to discuss their plans. However, Ego is not the sole survivor of a particular race that was dedicated to one specific pursuit, so he did not qualify for membership. Still, it joined in their plot against Galactus and battled the Silver Surfer, eventually capturing and attempting to absorb the power cosmic of the former herald. But, the Surfer seized control of the thruster and threatened to steer Ego into the sun, ensuring his release.

Ego later encountered the Korbinite fleet, led by Beta Ray Bill, and attacked them, destroying several ships. When Ego revealed to Bill that it was being driven mad by Galactus' thruster, Bill had the fleet destroy the thruster. Ego offered to make itself the Korbinites' new home, but Bill refused, suspicious of Ego and knowing that the Korbinites would resent Ego for having killed some of them. Bill left Ego deserted.

The enigmatic Celestials had transformed the Black Galaxy into a new member of their race, and this Celestial made contact with Ego. The High Evolutionary investigated this, and as Ego was being consumed by an immense "Super-Ego", speculated that Ego might be a single manifestation of a larger being, and that more than one Ego may exist. More Celestials came to examine Ego's dilemma, but how Ego escaped the Super-Ego is unknown.

Ego began searching for worlds that he could "wake up," so it would not be alone in the universe. If Ego could not wake a planet, it would deem it unworthy and destroy it regardless of the life forms that may have lived on the surface. Charles Xavier led a group of Skrulls to Ego in order to stop its actions, and with the assistance of the Silver Surfer, they almost succeeded in halting its insane plan. Xavier looked into the mind of Ego and found madness, which immediately told him that Ego could not be reasoned with. He decided that he would have to shut Ego's mind down, and as he began the process, a starship belonging to the alien race, the Ruul, intervened and shocked Ego into unconsciousness. This was going on at a time when an interplanetary council was deciding the fate of the Earth and ultimately declared it a prison planet for all alien criminals, including Ego.

The Ruul somehow managed to manipulate Ego's mass into a human sized vessel, but once on Earth, Ego started to expand. The heroes of Earth knew they only had a small amount of time to get Ego off the planet before it absorbed everything into itself. During the course of an investigation, U.S.Agent discovered that the Ruul were actually evolved members of the Kree race and had manipulated the interplanetary council for their own purposes. They had placed power conduits all over the Earth, so that once Ego expanded fully (which they knew would happen) and absorbed the Earth, they would take control of Ego and use its massive power for universal conquest. The Ruul, along with Ronan the Accuser, freed the Supreme Intelligence from captivity so that they would have a leader once more. Unfortunately for the Ruul, their plans would fail as Reed Richards created a device that enabled Quasar to absorb Ego into himself. With Ego gone and the council now aware of how they were tricked, the decision to make Earth a prison planet was reversed and the Ruul were defeated. Quasar, not wanting to endanger the Earth in case Ego escaped, decided that he would go into exile.

Recently, Ego was among the beings who assaulted Thanos while he possessed the Heart of the Infinite. How Ego escaped from within Quasar has not been chronicled. [18][19]Ego demands retribution for having been violated by the Nova CorpsRecently, the Xandarian Worldmind implemented its control over Ego's consciousness and took it for the new headquarters of the Nova Corps. Ego has been dubbed Nu-Xandar, and is currently occupying the same orbit as Earth with a gravimetric field around it as to not cause major destruction upon the planet. When the war between the Kree and Shi'ar broke out, Worldmind took Ego away from Earth in an attempt to stop the conflict, but not before stripping Nova of his powers. Quasar helped the de-powered Nova reach Nu-Xandar with the use of his Quantum Bands. Upon reaching his destination, Nova discovered it was actually Ego who was taking control of Worldmind, so Nova lobotomized the Living Planet, leaving Worldmind free of its influence. The Nova Corps continued to use the catatonic Ego as their base until the Inhumans unwittingly created a massive hole in the universe with a bomb meant to obliterate their Shi'ar enemies. A spacecraft, the Resolute Duty, emerged after an absence of thirty-five years, and it brought with it the means to free Ego. A bounty hunter called Monark Starstalker damaged Worldmind's systems, enabling Ego to repair himself quicker and reassert control over his body. The Nova Corps needed to evacuate fast, but aboard the Resolute Duty there was another battle raging. Mindless Ones had followed the ship through The Fault with the intention of liberating their captured leader. Nova had Worldmind create a portal to transport the Mindless Ones and their leader inside Ego's brain, giving him a more immediate threat than the Corps to attend to. Ego was forced to flee when Zan Philo, captain of the Resolute Duty, turned the ship's massive energy cannon's on him. Even though the Nova Corps triumphed that day, Worldmind was certain they'd cross paths with Ego again.Retrieved from "http://marvel.com/universe/Ego"Ego the Living Planet is a fictional extraterrestrialExtraterrestrial life in popular cultureIn popular cultures, life forms —especially intelligent life forms— that are of extraterrestrial origin, i.e. not coming from the Earth are referred to collectively as aliens....  being that appears in comic books published by Marvel ComicsMarvel ComicsMarvel Publishing, Inc., a company doing business as Marvel Comics, produces American comic books and related media.

Fictional character biographyEdit

Like all celestial bodies, Ego condensed from gas and dust in the "Black Galaxy" to become a planet. For reasons unknown, however, this particular planet achieved sentience and the ability to move of its own volition. Ego then began absorbing space vessels and even other worlds to survive, planning interstellar conquest. It was this behavior that attracts the attention of the RigellianRigellians (Marvel Comics)The Rigellians, also known as the Colonizers of Rigel, are a scientifically and technologically advanced alien race in the fictional Marvel Comics Universe, devoted towards amassing an empire via colonization.

The threat of Ego appears to have ended, however with Quasar's death during Annihilation, Ego was released in the Universe, only to be approached by the Worldmind to join the new Nova Corps. Richard confronts Worldmind about Ego, which reveals that Ego's consciousness has been supplanted, effectively making Ego the new host of Worldmind. Calling itself Nu Xandar, Worldmind tells Richard that he must download the Nova Force into Nu Xandar's power reserves so that it may be spread out throughout the Nova Corps. After some initial hesitation Richard agrees but backs out at the last minute which ended with Worldmind forcefully removing the Nova Force from Richard and returns him to Earth without his powers.

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

Abilities Ego possesses knowledge over alien technology that is far more advanced than that of the Earth's

[21]Within the Black Galaxy, one mass developed differently from the others. Evolving over millions of years, it grew to the size of a planet and developed intelligence and consciousness along with the ability to move its planet-sized mass by its own will. This planet became known as "Ego, the Living Planet". In its evolution, Ego developed organ-like masses under its surface, one of which is similar to a brain. As all sentient beings, Ego began to plan what its role in the universe would be.Ego’s first plot involved an interstellar conquest, which only led him to a confrontation with Thor, the God of Thunder, and the Recorder. Fleeing Ego, the Rigellians attempted to colonize Earth. Opposed by Thor, they explained their dilemma to him. Thor journeyed into the Black Galaxy to meet Ego. Ego, fascinated to meet a being from outside his space, engaged Thor in battle so that it could test its "anti-body" creations. Thor ravaged Ego’s surface with severe storms that caused the massive entity to be stunned. After Ego was defeated, it abandoned its plans for interstellar attack and vowed not to leave the Black Galaxy.

The next time Ego encountered the mighty Thor was during a battle with Galactus. Galactus had just recently consumed a world that had been home to the Wanderers, surviving members of an Archeopian extraterrestrial race. Thor decided that Galactus was the bigger threat and he took Ego’s side against the world devourer. In gratitude, Ego allowed its surface to become the new home of Wanderers.

A portion of Ego’s mass was taken by the Rigellian colonizer Tana Nile who hoped that it could transform other uninhabitable worlds into worlds where life could flourish. In an unforeseen event, the piece of Ego gained its own consciousness and called itself Ego-Prime. Ego-Prime eventually made its way to Earth, which it sought to transform to resemble itself. In combat with Thor, Ego-Prime's energies were stolen and used to empower three mortals that would become members of the Young Gods. The weakened Ego-Prime was taken prisoner by the Stranger, who stored it within his laboratory world.

Driven insane by the removal of Tana Nile's sample, Ego devoured the Wanderers. Desperate for energy, Galactus again tried to devour Ego, but was outmatched and forced to flee. Recognizing the Ego had gone insane, Galactus dispatched his herald Firelord, Thor, and Hercules against Ego. To win the fight, Galactus attached a self-designed sidereal propulsion unit to the south pole of Ego, forcing the planet to be driven through space, away from the populated areas of the universe. However, Ego gained control over the thruster. Seeking revenge on Galactus, Ego traveled to Earth, but instead found opposition in the Fantastic Four. Mister Fantastic directed the Thing to sabotage Ego's sidereal propulsion unit, which Ego could not seem to remove from its body. Ego was broken apart by the gravitational pull of the sun when the engine failed.

However, Ego's consciousness still existed in every remaining portion of itself. Ego gradually reformed itself and repaired the damage done to the propulsion unit. Ego expended much of its energy in doing so and had to bring its energy reserves back up. Disguising itself as an idyllic, paradise-like sphere, it lured a party of Dire Wraiths to establish a base on its surface. Ego then absorbed them into his being in order to replenish his energy. But, ROM landed on Ego, seeking fellow Space Knights trapped within the planet along with the Dire Wraiths, and battled the living planet. Rom saved his fellow Space Knights and sent the Dire Wraiths to Limbo before Ego could consume them.

Ego then allied himself with the Elders of the Universe claiming to be one himself. He allowed the Elders to even meet on its surface to discuss their plans. However, Ego is not the sole survivor of a particular race that was dedicated to one specific pursuit, so he did not qualify for membership. Still, it joined in their plot against Galactus and battled the Silver Surfer, eventually capturing and attempting to absorb the power cosmic of the former herald. But, the Surfer seized control of the thruster and threatened to steer Ego into the sun, ensuring his release.

Ego later encountered the Korbinite fleet, led by Beta Ray Bill, and attacked them, destroying several ships. When Ego revealed to Bill that it was being driven mad by Galactus' thruster, Bill had the fleet destroy the thruster. Ego offered to make itself the Korbinites' new home, but Bill refused, suspicious of Ego and knowing that the Korbinites would resent Ego for having killed some of them. Bill left Ego deserted.

The enigmatic Celestials had transformed the Black Galaxy into a new member of their race, and this Celestial made contact with Ego. The High Evolutionary investigated this, and as Ego was being consumed by an immense "Super-Ego", speculated that Ego might be a single manifestation of a larger being, and that more than one Ego may exist. More Celestials came to examine Ego's dilemma, but how Ego escaped the Super-Ego is unknown.

Ego began searching for worlds that he could "wake up," so it would not be alone in the universe. If Ego could not wake a planet, it would deem it unworthy and destroy it regardless of the life forms that may have lived on the surface. Charles Xavier led a group of Skrulls to Ego in order to stop its actions, and with the assistance of the Silver Surfer, they almost succeeded in halting its insane plan. Xavier looked into the mind of Ego and found madness, which immediately told him that Ego could not be reasoned with. He decided that he would have to shut Ego's mind down, and as he began the process, a starship belonging to the alien race, the Ruul, intervened and shocked Ego into unconsciousness. This was going on at a time when an interplanetary council was deciding the fate of the Earth and ultimately declared it a prison planet for all alien criminals, including Ego.

The Ruul somehow managed to manipulate Ego's mass into a human sized vessel, but once on Earth, Ego started to expand. The heroes of Earth knew they only had a small amount of time to get Ego off the planet before it absorbed everything into itself. During the course of an investigation, U.S.Agent discovered that the Ruul were actually evolved members of the Kree race and had manipulated the interplanetary council for their own purposes. They had placed power conduits all over the Earth, so that once Ego expanded fully (which they knew would happen) and absorbed the Earth, they would take control of Ego and use its massive power for universal conquest. The Ruul, along with Ronan the Accuser, freed the Supreme Intelligence from captivity so that they would have a leader once more. Unfortunately for the Ruul, their plans would fail as Reed Richards created a device that enabled Quasar to absorb Ego into himself. With Ego gone and the council now aware of how they were tricked, the decision to make Earth a prison planet was reversed and the Ruul were defeated. Quasar, not wanting to endanger the Earth in case Ego escaped, decided that he would go into exile.

Recently, Ego was among the beings who assaulted Thanos while he possessed the Heart of the Infinite. How Ego escaped from within Quasar has not been chronicled. [22][23]Ego demands retribution for having been violated by the Nova CorpsRecently, the Xandarian Worldmind implemented its control over Ego's consciousness and took it for the new headquarters of the Nova Corps. Ego has been dubbed Nu-Xandar, and is currently occupying the same orbit as Earth with a gravimetric field around it as to not cause major destruction upon the planet. When the war between the Kree and Shi'ar broke out, Worldmind took Ego away from Earth in an attempt to stop the conflict, but not before stripping Nova of his powers. Quasar helped the de-powered Nova reach Nu-Xandar with the use of his Quantum Bands. Upon reaching his destination, Nova discovered it was actually Ego who was taking control of Worldmind, so Nova lobotomized the Living Planet, leaving Worldmind free of its influence. The Nova Corps continued to use the catatonic Ego as their base until the Inhumans unwittingly created a massive hole in the universe with a bomb meant to obliterate their Shi'ar enemies. A spacecraft, the Resolute Duty, emerged after an absence of thirty-five years, and it brought with it the means to free Ego. A bounty hunter called Monark Starstalker damaged Worldmind's systems, enabling Ego to repair himself quicker and reassert control over his body. The Nova Corps needed to evacuate fast, but aboard the Resolute Duty there was another battle raging. Mindless Ones had followed the ship through The Fault with the intention of liberating their captured leader. Nova had Worldmind create a portal to transport the Mindless Ones and their leader inside Ego's brain, giving him a more immediate threat than the Corps to attend to. Ego was forced to flee when Zan Philo, captain of the Resolute Duty, turned the ship's massive energy cannon's on him. Even though the Nova Corps triumphed that day, Worldmind was certain they'd cross paths with Ego again.Retrieved from "http://marvel.com/universe/Ego" Discussion{| cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); border-right: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); border-bottom: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204);" width="100%" | style="border: 9px solid rgb(244, 244, 242); padding: 0px;"|Ask a question about 'Ego the Living Planet'Start a new discussion about 'Ego the Living Planet'Answer questions from other usersFull Discussion Forum |}  EncyclopediaEgo the Living Planet is a fictional extraterrestrialExtraterrestrial life in popular cultureIn popular cultures, life forms —especially intelligent life forms— that are of extraterrestrial origin, i.e. not coming from the Earth are referred to collectively as aliens....  being that appears in comic books published by Marvel ComicsMarvel ComicsMarvel Publishing, Inc., a company doing business as Marvel Comics, produces American comic books and related media.

Fictional character biographyEdit

Like all celestial bodies, Ego condensed from gas and dust in the "Black Galaxy" to become a planet. For reasons unknown, however, this particular planet achieved sentience and the ability to move of its own volition. Ego then began absorbing space vessels and even other worlds to survive, planning interstellar conquest. It was this behavior that attracts the attention of the RigellianRigellians (Marvel Comics)The Rigellians, also known as the Colonizers of Rigel, are a scientifically and technologically advanced alien race in the fictional Marvel Comics Universe, devoted towards amassing an empire via colonization.

A well-meaning Rigellian took a sample of Ego's form, in the hope that this could be used to fertilize sterile worlds being considered for habitation. This act drives Ego insane, and it soon gives in to its primordial urges and absorbs the Wanderers, which causes Thor to side with a returning Galactus.

The threat of Ego appears to have ended, however with Quasar's death during Annihilation, Ego was released in the Universe, only to be approached by the Worldmind to join the new Nova Corps. Richard confronts Worldmind about Ego, which reveals that Ego's consciousness has been supplanted, effectively making Ego the new host of Worldmind. Calling itself Nu Xandar, Worldmind tells Richard that he must download the Nova Force into Nu Xandar's power reserves so that it may be spread out throughout the Nova Corps. After some initial hesitation Richard agrees but backs out at the last minute which ended with Worldmind forcefully removing the Nova Force from Richard and returns him to Earth without his powers.

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

[25]Within the Black Galaxy, one mass developed differently from the others. Evolving over millions of years, it grew to the size of a planet and developed intelligence and consciousness along with the ability to move its planet-sized mass by its own will. This planet became known as "Ego, the Living Planet". In its evolution, Ego developed organ-like masses under its surface, one of which is similar to a brain. As all sentient beings, Ego began to plan what its role in the universe would be.Ego’s first plot involved an interstellar conquest, which only led him to a confrontation with Thor, the God of Thunder, and the Recorder. Fleeing Ego, the Rigellians attempted to colonize Earth. Opposed by Thor, they explained their dilemma to him. Thor journeyed into the Black Galaxy to meet Ego. Ego, fascinated to meet a being from outside his space, engaged Thor in battle so that it could test its "anti-body" creations. Thor ravaged Ego’s surface with severe storms that caused the massive entity to be stunned. After Ego was defeated, it abandoned its plans for interstellar attack and vowed not to leave the Black Galaxy.

The next time Ego encountered the mighty Thor was during a battle with Galactus. Galactus had just recently consumed a world that had been home to the Wanderers, surviving members of an Archeopian extraterrestrial race. Thor decided that Galactus was the bigger threat and he took Ego’s side against the world devourer. In gratitude, Ego allowed its surface to become the new home of Wanderers.

A portion of Ego’s mass was taken by the Rigellian colonizer Tana Nile who hoped that it could transform other uninhabitable worlds into worlds where life could flourish. In an unforeseen event, the piece of Ego gained its own consciousness and called itself Ego-Prime. Ego-Prime eventually made its way to Earth, which it sought to transform to resemble itself. In combat with Thor, Ego-Prime's energies were stolen and used to empower three mortals that would become members of the Young Gods. The weakened Ego-Prime was taken prisoner by the Stranger, who stored it within his laboratory world.

Driven insane by the removal of Tana Nile's sample, Ego devoured the Wanderers. Desperate for energy, Galactus again tried to devour Ego, but was outmatched and forced to flee. Recognizing the Ego had gone insane, Galactus dispatched his herald Firelord, Thor, and Hercules against Ego. To win the fight, Galactus attached a self-designed sidereal propulsion unit to the south pole of Ego, forcing the planet to be driven through space, away from the populated areas of the universe. However, Ego gained control over the thruster. Seeking revenge on Galactus, Ego traveled to Earth, but instead found opposition in the Fantastic Four. Mister Fantastic directed the Thing to sabotage Ego's sidereal propulsion unit, which Ego could not seem to remove from its body. Ego was broken apart by the gravitational pull of the sun when the engine failed.

However, Ego's consciousness still existed in every remaining portion of itself. Ego gradually reformed itself and repaired the damage done to the propulsion unit. Ego expended much of its energy in doing so and had to bring its energy reserves back up. Disguising itself as an idyllic, paradise-like sphere, it lured a party of Dire Wraiths to establish a base on its surface. Ego then absorbed them into his being in order to replenish his energy. But, ROM landed on Ego, seeking fellow Space Knights trapped within the planet along with the Dire Wraiths, and battled the living planet. Rom saved his fellow Space Knights and sent the Dire Wraiths to Limbo before Ego could consume them.

Ego then allied himself with the Elders of the Universe claiming to be one himself. He allowed the Elders to even meet on its surface to discuss their plans. However, Ego is not the sole survivor of a particular race that was dedicated to one specific pursuit, so he did not qualify for membership. Still, it joined in their plot against Galactus and battled the Silver Surfer, eventually capturing and attempting to absorb the power cosmic of the former herald. But, the Surfer seized control of the thruster and threatened to steer Ego into the sun, ensuring his release.

Ego later encountered the Korbinite fleet, led by Beta Ray Bill, and attacked them, destroying several ships. When Ego revealed to Bill that it was being driven mad by Galactus' thruster, Bill had the fleet destroy the thruster. Ego offered to make itself the Korbinites' new home, but Bill refused, suspicious of Ego and knowing that the Korbinites would resent Ego for having killed some of them. Bill left Ego deserted.

The enigmatic Celestials had transformed the Black Galaxy into a new member of their race, and this Celestial made contact with Ego. The High Evolutionary investigated this, and as Ego was being consumed by an immense "Super-Ego", speculated that Ego might be a single manifestation of a larger being, and that more than one Ego may exist. More Celestials came to examine Ego's dilemma, but how Ego escaped the Super-Ego is unknown.

Ego began searching for worlds that he could "wake up," so it would not be alone in the universe. If Ego could not wake a planet, it would deem it unworthy and destroy it regardless of the life forms that may have lived on the surface. Charles Xavier led a group of Skrulls to Ego in order to stop its actions, and with the assistance of the Silver Surfer, they almost succeeded in halting its insane plan. Xavier looked into the mind of Ego and found madness, which immediately told him that Ego could not be reasoned with. He decided that he would have to shut Ego's mind down, and as he began the process, a starship belonging to the alien race, the Ruul, intervened and shocked Ego into unconsciousness. This was going on at a time when an interplanetary council was deciding the fate of the Earth and ultimately declared it a prison planet for all alien criminals, including Ego.

The Ruul somehow managed to manipulate Ego's mass into a human sized vessel, but once on Earth, Ego started to expand. The heroes of Earth knew they only had a small amount of time to get Ego off the planet before it absorbed everything into itself. During the course of an investigation, U.S.Agent discovered that the Ruul were actually evolved members of the Kree race and had manipulated the interplanetary council for their own purposes. They had placed power conduits all over the Earth, so that once Ego expanded fully (which they knew would happen) and absorbed the Earth, they would take control of Ego and use its massive power for universal conquest. The Ruul, along with Ronan the Accuser, freed the Supreme Intelligence from captivity so that they would have a leader once more. Unfortunately for the Ruul, their plans would fail as Reed Richards created a device that enabled Quasar to absorb Ego into himself. With Ego gone and the council now aware of how they were tricked, the decision to make Earth a prison planet was reversed and the Ruul were defeated. Quasar, not wanting to endanger the Earth in case Ego escaped, decided that he would go into exile.

Recently, Ego was among the beings who assaulted Thanos while he possessed the Heart of the Infinite. How Ego escaped from within Quasar has not been chronicled. [26][27]Ego demands retribution for having been violated by the Nova CorpsRecently, the Xandarian Worldmind implemented its control over Ego's consciousness and took it for the new headquarters of the Nova Corps. Ego has been dubbed Nu-Xandar, and is currently occupying the same orbit as Earth with a gravimetric field around it as to not cause major destruction upon the planet. When the war between the Kree and Shi'ar broke out, Worldmind took Ego away from Earth in an attempt to stop the conflict, but not before stripping Nova of his powers. Quasar helped the de-powered Nova reach Nu-Xandar with the use of his Quantum Bands. Upon reaching his destination, Nova discovered it was actually Ego who was taking control of Worldmind, so Nova lobotomized the Living Planet, leaving Worldmind free of its influence. The Nova Corps continued to use the catatonic Ego as their base until the Inhumans unwittingly created a massive hole in the universe with a bomb meant to obliterate their Shi'ar enemies. A spacecraft, the Resolute Duty, emerged after an absence of thirty-five years, and it brought with it the means to free Ego. A bounty hunter called Monark Starstalker damaged Worldmind's systems, enabling Ego to repair himself quicker and reassert control over his body. The Nova Corps needed to evacuate fast, but aboard the Resolute Duty there was another battle raging. Mindless Ones had followed the ship through The Fault with the intention of liberating their captured leader. Nova had Worldmind create a portal to transport the Mindless Ones and their leader inside Ego's brain, giving him a more immediate threat than the Corps to attend to. Ego was forced to flee when Zan Philo, captain of the Resolute Duty, turned the ship's massive energy cannon's on him. Even though the Nova Corps triumphed that day, Worldmind was certain they'd cross paths with Ego again.Retrieved from "http://marvel.com/universe/Ego"Ego the Living Planet is a fictional extraterrestrialExtraterrestrial life in popular cultureIn popular cultures, life forms —especially intelligent life forms— that are of extraterrestrial origin, i.e. not coming from the Earth are referred to collectively as aliens....  being that appears in comic books published by Marvel ComicsMarvel ComicsMarvel Publishing, Inc., a company doing business as Marvel Comics, produces American comic books and related media.

Fictional character biographyEdit

Like all celestial bodies, Ego condensed from gas and dust in the "Black Galaxy" to become a planet. For reasons unknown, however, this particular planet achieved sentience and the ability to move of its own volition. Ego then began absorbing space vessels and even other worlds to survive, planning interstellar conquest. It was this behavior that attracts the attention of the RigellianRigellians (Marvel Comics)The Rigellians, also known as the Colonizers of Rigel, are a scientifically and technologically advanced alien race in the fictional Marvel Comics Universe, devoted towards amassing an empire via colonization. They are native to Rigel-3 the third planet orbiting the star Rigel in the Milky Way Galaxy...  Colonizers, who fear that the nearby Ego will consume their home-world.

A well-meaning Rigellian took a sample of Ego's form, in the hope that this could be used to fertilize sterile worlds being considered for habitation. This act drives Ego insane, and it soon gives in to its primordial urges and absorbs the Wanderers, which causes Thor to side with a returning Galactus.

The threat of Ego appears to have ended, however with Quasar's death during Annihilation, Ego was released in the Universe, only to be approached by the Worldmind to join the new Nova Corps. Richard confronts Worldmind about Ego, which reveals that Ego's consciousness has been supplanted, effectively making Ego the new host of Worldmind. Calling itself Nu Xandar, Worldmind tells Richard that he must download the Nova Force into Nu Xandar's power reserves so that it may be spread out throughout the Nova Corps. After some initial hesitation Richard agrees but backs out at the last minute which ended with Worldmind forcefully removing the Nova Force from Richard and returns him to Earth without his powers.

Powers Ego is a planet sized entity that has immeasurable intelligence, and incalculable strength. Its stamina and durability are god-like, and it can fly through space at warp speed. Since Ego is essentially a "living planet", it has total control over its total mass down to the molecular level. It can shift its surface to appear as if it had a giant face, or grow enormous tentacles. It can make itself look like either a paradise, to lure unsuspecting travelers to their doom, or a barren world and can use its mass to create plant-like growths or humanoid bodies to carry it consciousness. Ego has an internal organ system that has giant tunnels, or arteries, a brain-like organ that is buried deep within its surface, and digestive organs to digest the living beings it absorbs into its body. Ego also has an immune system that will attack an entity that resists being absorbed.

Ego has vast mental powers that allow it to tap into energy sources such as the stars or absorbing other living entities and use that power for itself. It also has extreme telepathic abilities that are effective over interstellar distances.

==Fun History==


Within the Black Galaxy, one mass developed differently from the others. Evolving over millions of years, it grew to the size of a planet and developed intelligence and consciousness along with the ability to move its planet-sized mass by its own will. This planet became known as "Ego, the Living Planet". In its evolution, Ego developed organ-like masses under its surface, one of which is similar to a brain. As all sentient beings, Ego began to plan what its role in the universe would be.Ego’s first plot involved an interstellar conquest, which only led him to a confrontation with Thor, the God of Thunder, and the Recorder. Fleeing Ego, the Rigellians attempted to colonize Earth. Opposed by Thor, they explained their dilemma to him. Thor journeyed into the Black Galaxy to meet Ego. Ego, fascinated to meet a being from outside his space, engaged Thor in battle so that it could test its "anti-body" creations. Thor ravaged Ego’s surface with severe storms that caused the massive entity to be stunned. After Ego was defeated, it abandoned its plans for interstellar attack and vowed not to leave the Black Galaxy.

The next time Ego encountered the mighty Thor was during a battle with Galactus. Galactus had just recently consumed a world that had been home to the Wanderers, surviving members of an Archeopian extraterrestrial race. Thor decided that Galactus was the bigger threat and he took Ego’s side against the world devourer. In gratitude, Ego allowed its surface to become the new home of Wanderers.

A portion of Ego’s mass was taken by the Rigellian colonizer Tana Nile who hoped that it could transform other uninhabitable worlds into worlds where life could flourish. In an unforeseen event, the piece of Ego gained its own consciousness and called itself Ego-Prime. Ego-Prime eventually made its way to Earth, which it sought to transform to resemble itself. In combat with Thor, Ego-Prime's energies were stolen and used to empower three mortals that would become members of the Young Gods. The weakened Ego-Prime was taken prisoner by the Stranger, who stored it within his laboratory world.

Driven insane by the removal of Tana Nile's sample, Ego devoured the Wanderers. Desperate for energy, Galactus again tried to devour Ego, but was outmatched and forced to flee. Recognizing the Ego had gone insane, Galactus dispatched his herald Firelord, Thor, and Hercules against Ego. To win the fight, Galactus attached a self-designed sidereal propulsion unit to the south pole of Ego, forcing the planet to be driven through space, away from the populated areas of the universe. However, Ego gained control over the thruster. Seeking revenge on Galactus, Ego traveled to Earth, but instead found opposition in the Fantastic Four. Mister Fantastic directed the Thing to sabotage Ego's sidereal propulsion unit, which Ego could not seem to remove from its body. Ego was broken apart by the gravitational pull of the sun when the engine failed.

However, Ego's consciousness still existed in every remaining portion of itself. Ego gradually reformed itself and repaired the damage done to the propulsion unit. Ego expended much of its energy in doing so and had to bring its energy reserves back up. Disguising itself as an idyllic, paradise-like sphere, it lured a party of Dire Wraiths to establish a base on its surface. Ego then absorbed them into his being in order to replenish his energy. But, ROM landed on Ego, seeking fellow Space Knights trapped within the planet along with the Dire Wraiths, and battled the living planet. Rom saved his fellow Space Knights and sent the Dire Wraiths to Limbo before Ego could consume them.

Ego then allied himself with the Elders of the Universe claiming to be one himself. He allowed the Elders to even meet on its surface to discuss their plans. However, Ego is not the sole survivor of a particular race that was dedicated to one specific pursuit, so he did not qualify for membership. Still, it joined in their plot against Galactus and battled the Silver Surfer, eventually capturing and attempting to absorb the power cosmic of the former herald. But, the Surfer seized control of the thruster and threatened to steer Ego into the sun, ensuring his release.

Ego later encountered the Korbinite fleet, led by Beta Ray Bill, and attacked them, destroying several ships. When Ego revealed to Bill that it was being driven mad by Galactus' thruster, Bill had the fleet destroy the thruster. Ego offered to make itself the Korbinites' new home, but Bill refused, suspicious of Ego and knowing that the Korbinites would resent Ego for having killed some of them. Bill left Ego deserted.

The enigmatic Celestials had transformed the Black Galaxy into a new member of their race, and this Celestial made contact with Ego. The High Evolutionary investigated this, and as Ego was being consumed by an immense "Super-Ego", speculated that Ego might be a single manifestation of a larger being, and that more than one Ego may exist. More Celestials came to examine Ego's dilemma, but how Ego escaped the Super-Ego is unknown.

Ego began searching for worlds that he could "wake up," so it would not be alone in the universe. If Ego could not wake a planet, it would deem it unworthy and destroy it regardless of the life forms that may have lived on the surface. Charles Xavier led a group of Skrulls to Ego in order to stop its actions, and with the assistance of the Silver Surfer, they almost succeeded in halting its insane plan. Xavier looked into the mind of Ego and found madness, which immediately told him that Ego could not be reasoned with. He decided that he would have to shut Ego's mind down, and as he began the process, a starship belonging to the alien race, the Ruul, intervened and shocked Ego into unconsciousness. This was going on at a time when an interplanetary council was deciding the fate of the Earth and ultimately declared it a prison planet for all alien criminals, including Ego.

The Ruul somehow managed to manipulate Ego's mass into a human sized vessel, but once on Earth, Ego started to expand. The heroes of Earth knew they only had a small amount of time to get Ego off the planet before it absorbed everything into itself. During the course of an investigation, U.S.Agent discovered that the Ruul were actually evolved members of the Kree race and had manipulated the interplanetary council for their own purposes. They had placed power conduits all over the Earth, so that once Ego expanded fully (which they knew would happen) and absorbed the Earth, they would take control of Ego and use its massive power for universal conquest. The Ruul, along with Ronan the Accuser, freed the Supreme Intelligence from captivity so that they would have a leader once more. Unfortunately for the Ruul, their plans would fail as Reed Richards created a device that enabled Quasar to absorb Ego into himself. With Ego gone and the council now aware of how they were tricked, the decision to make Earth a prison planet was reversed and the Ruul were defeated. Quasar, not wanting to endanger the Earth in case Ego escaped, decided that he would go into exile.

Recently, Ego was among the beings who assaulted Thanos while he possessed the Heart of the Infinite. How Ego escaped from within Quasar has not been chronicled. [29][30]Ego demands retribution for having been violated by the Nova CorpsRecently, the Xandarian Worldmind implemented its control over Ego's consciousness and took it for the new headquarters of the Nova Corps. Ego has been dubbed Nu-Xandar, and is currently occupying the same orbit as Earth with a gravimetric field around it as to not cause major destruction upon the planet. When the war between the Kree and Shi'ar broke out, Worldmind took Ego away from Earth in an attempt to stop the conflict, but not before stripping Nova of his powers. Quasar helped the de-powered Nova reach Nu-Xandar with the use of his Quantum Bands. Upon reaching his destination, Nova discovered it was actually Ego who was taking control of Worldmind, so Nova lobotomized the Living Planet, leaving Worldmind free of its influence. The Nova Corps continued to use the catatonic Ego as their base until the Inhumans unwittingly created a massive hole in the universe with a bomb meant to obliterate their Shi'ar enemies. A spacecraft, the Resolute Duty, emerged after an absence of thirty-five years, and it brought with it the means to free Ego. A bounty hunter called Monark Starstalker damaged Worldmind's systems, enabling Ego to repair himself quicker and reassert control over his body. The Nova Corps needed to evacuate fast, but aboard the Resolute Duty there was another battle raging. Mindless Ones had followed the ship through The Fault with the intention of liberating their captured leader. Nova had Worldmind create a portal to transport the Mindless Ones and their leader inside Ego's brain, giving him a more immediate threat than the Corps to attend to. Ego was forced to flee when Zan Philo, captain of the Resolute Duty, turned the ship's massive energy cannon's on him. Even though the Nova Corps triumphed that day, Worldmind was certain they'd cross paths with Ego again.Retrieved from "http://marvel.com/universe/Ego" ==Powers and abilities==

Ego is exceptionally intelligent, although as its name suggests, it harbors an extreme superiority complex and can be emotional if thwarted. Ego is propelled through space via the engine Galactus implanted on it and can travel at faster than light speeds (for unknown reasons, Ego is unable to remove the powerful propulsion unit placed at its south pole). Ego has total control over its entire mass down to the molecular level; it often shapes its surface into the appearance of a gigantic face to address powerful beings, and can also shape its terrain to suit the circumstances. It is able to use its own substance to extrude tentacles, organic sensors, plant-like growth, and to create humanoid vessels for its consciousness. It can shape its surface to appear as a dead inhospitable world, or into an idyllic, lush green paradise to lure unaware space travelers to its surface, which it promptly consumes. Ego possesses various internal features analogous to a living organism, such as gigantic tunnels that have been compared to arteries, and a gigantic brain-like organ deep below its surface. Ego possesses both digestive organs, which it uses when absorbing living beings, and an immune system with which to create powerful antibodies to destroy beings which resist absorption. It also possesses vast psionic abilities, and can project blasts powerful enough to destroy other worlds.
