One of the most enigmatic cosmic entities in the Marvel Universe, Stranger's intentions have never been clear. With a largely disputable origin, the Living Tribunal once revealed his fourth face, that of a void, and said it had become the Stranger. The Stranger later denied this. The entity has proved
to be an adversary of considerable cosmic strength. From capturing Omega Level mutant Magneto not once but twice to enslaving Abomination, and being responsible for creating Ego the Living Planet.
Historically, the Stranger has flip-flopped between hero and villain. At one point trying to conquer Earth with a manipulated Hulk, and at another time battling Thanos in the Infinity Gauntlet storyline. Stranger is reputably more powerful than Mephisto, Dormammu, Odin, and Zeus.
