  Elders of the Universe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Elders of the Universe are a group of fictional characters in the Marvel Comics' universe.
Every Elder has a different specialization, which they follow fanatically, apparently as a way to endure their eternal existence (one of them, The Collector's wife, eventually allowed herself to die because of it.) It must be noted that the Elders are not truly Cosmic Beings though some have achieved cosmic levels of power and knowledge.
Later, some of the Elders joined forces to try to kill Galactus and take his place and power as the balancing force of the Universe, but were thwarted by the Silver Surfer and his allies.

Soon, Tivan had joined his fellow Elders in a plan to slay Galactus and supplant him as the universe thus re-created itself, but he and the Elders were defeated by Galactus' former Herald, the Silver Surfer and his friend, Mantis.

 Benedict De Spinoza [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
God is no longer the transcendent creator of the universe who rules it via providence, but Nature itself, understood as an infinite, necessary, and fully deterministic system of which humans are a part.
More importantly, it signals a rejection of classical theism, the idea that God is the creator of the universe who remains ontologically distinct from it and governs it according to his sovereign will.
These are pervasive features of the universe, each of which follows from the divine nature insofar as it follows from the absolute nature of one or another of God's attributes.
