The Beyonder is a fictional comic book character appearing in books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Jim Shooter and artist Mike Zeck, the Beyonder first appeared in Secret Wars #1 (May 1984) as an unseen being who kidnapped the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe and had them do battle on another planet called Battleworld. He later appeared in a more antagonistic role in the 1985 sequel Secret Wars II, in which he took a human form and threatened to destroy the Marvel multiverse.Mobile

Key: Outside of the Beyond Realm | Within the Beyond Realm
Notes: Comparisons with post-retcon versions of the Abstracts are illogical, as the abstracts in the mid 80's were much less powerful than they were later retconned to be. For example, the handbook at the time stated that the Living Tribunal was able to easily detonate stars, and that was it.
The Beyonder destroyed Death, but was greatly weakened from the effort, and stated that he could not undo the act on his own, although he later somehow managed to do so anyway. The Puma, when in perfect harmony with the universe was also stated to be able to destroy him, but this was left unproven. He had to exert himself to defeat the Molecule Man. He was once overloaded by the Rachel Summers Phoenix, after which he collapsed on the ground. His power was also temporarily stolen by Doctor Doom, and he briefly transferred it to a machine, or gave half of it to the Dazzler.
Despite the above facts, he was claimed to be either omnipotent or nigh-omnipotent on different occasions. It was stated that the Marvel Universe was as a drop in the ocean compared to him and that he had power millions of times greater than multiversal scale.
