History[edit | edit source]
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Ego is in complete control of his body, which is completely alien in design - despite being a "living planet" Ego is constantly described as a vast biological life-form and has displayed an array of devastating abilities far beyond the measure of most humanoid life - he can form faces or other structures from his mass, he can devour entire colonies who try to land on his surface and is shown to have a gigantic brain with untold telepathic power comparable to entities such as Galactus.
As a "living planet" Ego is effectively immortal, having lived for centuries and being able to regenerate on a molecular level - with such age comes incredible knowledge and cunning, sufficient that he joined the Elders of the Universe during their attempts to usurp Galactus and effectively become gods in a new universe.
Ego is also capable of reproducing, when parts of his structure are broken off they may develop unique intelligence - such as happened in the creation of Alter-Ego.
Finally, Ego is able to move freely in space but this is not a natural trait and rather the result of a powerful engine that has grown within his structure - allowing the planet-sized being to travel the stars.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Ego, Alter-Ego and Id are names taken from traditional psychology - of which each entity seems to roughly represent.
