Exitar's existence was first revealed when Arishem the Judge summoned him to the world of Pangoria in order to purge the planet of a massive space pirate community whose presence on Pangoria had completely derailed their plans for the native populace's development. Believing that the two Celestials had come to simply eradicate all life on the planet, Thor tried interfering in their affairs and attempted to stop Exitar from carrying out the purification ritual.
Thor's misguided attempts at "saving" Pangoria were thwarted by the immense Celestial, however, and the purification went as planned. Exitar used the data he had gathered on the Thunder God to create a clone. It was through this clone that Exitar was able to explain to Thor the error of his ways and warn him to never again interfere in the affairs of The Celestials. After that, Exitar banished him from Pangoria and sealed the planet off from the rest of the known universe.
Sometime later, The Celestials discovered that their mortal enemies, The Watchers, had secretly engineered a weapon of sorts designed to speed up the universe's demise so that they could free themselves from their Oath of Non-Interference. Wasting no time whatsoever, Arishem the Judge summoned Exitar, assembled the Prime Celestial Host and launched a campaign against The Watchers that would finally end the war between their two races. A war based on a vast difference of opinion regarding their direct interference in the natural development of younger/lesser races that began the day the two made first contact. Exitar was able to eliminate the weapon, a gigantic artificially engineered "super-Watcher" called "The One" but was then banished from our plane of existence by The Invisible Woman. After the titanic Celestial fell, Uatu the Watcher foretold that Exitar would return in the far-distant future to finish what he started.

Powers and Abilities
Exitar The Exterminator like many of the Celestials is an extremely powerful god like being, possessing incalculable levels of strength, durability, speed and energy projection. Enormous in stature, the Exterminator towers of even his fellow Celestials who are up to 2000 feet in height, Exitar reaching the incredible height of 20 000 feet. The Exterminator possesses the ability to manipulate reality and rearrange matter. They can teleport themselves or vast objects across vast distances. Although near invulnerable, in the rare case of being injured or harmed, Celestials will regenerate near instantaneously. Supposedly Celestials are impossible to destroy completely, and as such easier to imprison. Capable of withstanding earth shattering blows, the Exterminator also possesses the ability to generate energy blasts that are of an earth shattering level and higher. There is an unknown connection between the Celestials and Hyperspace. It is possible that Hyperspace is the origin of the Celestials vast powers. Exitar The Exterminator is one of the most powerful of the Celestials, outmatching most in scope of size, and authority and presumably power. Physical Characteristics
