The Cull Obsidian wiki last edited by fesak on 01/18/18 12:22AM View full history


The Cull Obsidian, also known as the Black Order, were created by Jonathan Hickman. They first appeared together as a team in Infinity #1. Although one of the five members, Corvus Glaive, made his first appearance in a Free Comic Book Day issue some months previously, and the other four members appeared separately in one panel cameos in New Avengers #8, Infinity #1 is the first instance in which they are united as the Black Order, and named as such. They make their first cover appearance as a group in New Avengers #9.

Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, Supergiant, Black Dwarf and Ebony Maw form the five generals of Thanos' Cull Obsidian, meaning "Midnight Slaughter". Privately, they prefer to call themselves the Black Order, since it's less foreboding. Each member is also referred to as a Dreadlord.
