Quote:I do not recall them being a race at that point. I may be mistaken but the original Beyonder made a point that he was lonely. I may not be remember SW2 well enough. I know the example you are pointing out but just from what I generally remember the Beyonder initially was saying that he was a reality to himself. He found this other place.
The original Beyonder was not originally associated with the Beyonders. This association was made with the Beyonder retcon, from Secret Wars III (Fantastic Four #319), that the true Beyonders allowed energy from their reality to enter the main Marvel Multiverse. They did this under the guidance of the Great Powers (mostly Eternity, Living Tribunal, Order and Chaos).
You can actually follow the explanation in the 1986(?) or maybe 1989 OHOTMU, and to some extent in the following Fantastic Four annuals. It's a bit convoluted, but interesting. I am now unsure how much of it is relevant. I have not read much of the current Beyonders events.
