Quote:Al Ewing's contribution to Marvel's pantheon of cosmic entities. What do we know about him?
Quote:He's powerful enough for Galactus to want to recruit him to his Eternity Watch, and powerful enough to stand against the dark celestials (however powerful they may be compared to the other kind).
Quote:He uses weapons, albeit ones capable of hurting the aforementioned dark celestials.
Quote:He uses a device to translate his words into other races' languages, unlike Galactus, the Watcher, Stranger, et. al. who seem to be omnilingual.
Quote:He seems unable to control his own size as other cosmic entities do. Or doesn't realise it if he can.
Quote:He wears a helmet shaped like the head of Stewie from Family Guy, so may not be able to survive outside of his native environment unprotected. Or he may just be Stewie from Family Guy.
Quote:Observation: His speech patterns resemble those of a Regillian Recorder. Hypothesis: he may be a recorder who has been transported to some distant part of the multiverse where he was transformed by some means into a cosmic entity, much like V'Ger in Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
In my head I don't see him as anything special. I think he just comes from a dimension where everything's bigger. He's a scientist wearing a suit. He's too big to step foot on earth. I think he had to shrink to enter into the main universe. He's an explorer who wanted to explore the mutliverse/make contact with life from other universes.
They also call him the Macronaut. Remember the Micronauts? He's like that. People from the 616 universe entered the Microverse by shrinking (there was a later retcon in Byrne's Fantastic Four not relevant to this conversation that changed that into shrinking shunts you into an alternate timeline).
The Macronaut/Infinaut enters the main universe by shrinking in his dimension IMO. Macronaut shrinks to enter the universe. People in the universe shrink to enter the Microverse.
Macronaut is presumably from some Macroverse where everything is super sized.
