"Once, for a moment, a group was able to share the energy amongst themselves. But even they were quickly destroyed by it."
Taneleer Tivan[src]

The Cosmic Beings were nine individuals who attempted to wield the Power Stone.


This group attempted to harness the Power Stone by sharing its power between them, achieved this by linking themselves together. The effects were short-lived as the energy of the stone disintegrated all nine beings after a few moments.

The Collector showed a recording of this event to the Guardians of the Galaxy in order to teach them about the history of the stones.[1]
