If you aren't familiar with them, the Elders of the Universe get their great power from being the last surviving member of their race. As long as they continue to do what they enjoy, they are virtually immortal. They are imbued with the Power Primordial - the energies left over from the creation of the universe.
In his battle with the Obliterator, the Silver Surfer convinced him to spare the Zenn-Lavians, for if he killed them all the Surfer would be the last of his kind and therefor become an Elder and his "brother."
Technically, the Silver Surfer is the last Zenn-Lavian (check this blog). In an alternate future, Lightwave is from Zenn-La as well. Does that mean there are other Zenn-Lavians still alive in the 616 universe? This is kind of a bad example, since how could we even tell the Silver Surfer has the powers of an Elder since he is already so powerful and has such great longevity.
What about Gamora - the last surviving Zen Whoberi? Should she not have the great powers of an Elder of the Universe?
What got me thinking about this was the Earth-691 Guardians of the Galaxy. Martinex is the last survivor of Pluto. Charlie-27 is the last Jovian. Nikki is the last Mercurian. Do they not fit the qualifications of an Elder of the Universe?
Another example I can think of is Stardust. She fed the remaining survivors of her race to Galactus.
Are there any others in the Marvel Universe you can think of that are the last of their kind?
