Elders of the Universe
The Elders of the Universe are a group of fictional characters in the Marvel Comics' universe. They are the last survivors of the first intelligent humanoid races that developed after the Big Bang. As such they have achieved virtual immortality as well as mastered advanced technologies.
The Elders, because of their links to the first era of the universe history, have come to regard each other as brothers at least figuratively. It is not known how many Elders still remain.
During the Contest of Champions miniseries, the Grandmaster challenged Death to a game of strategy, and won; this led to Death becoming angered with the Elders, preventing them from ever entering her realm - in other words, making them effectively immortal.
