The In-Betweener is a cosmic entity who exists as the synthesis of
the major concepts of the universe: life and death, reality and illusion, good and evil
logic and emotion, existence and nothingness, god and man.
Fifteen feet In stature the In-Betweener Is an agent of Lord Chaos and Master Order two of the universal principal abstract beings, whose appointed task is to maintain the universal balance. Simultaneously existing end not-existing, present everywhere and present nowhere, the In-Betweener first came to human attention when it abducted the golden humanoid Adam Warlock to its quasi-realm and attempted to transform him into a champion of life to help restore the balance upset by Thanos of Titan. It was later encountered by Earth's sorcerer supreme, Doctor Strange, when it empowered the spells of a renegade band of wizards calling themselves the Creators. Strange opposed the In-Betweener and its plan to restore balance by creating universal insanity, and calling upon its masters, Order and Chaos, Strange managed to halt the In-Betweener's machinations.
While possessing sufficient power to alter reality on a cosmic scale, the In-Betweener is not all-knowing or infallible. Indeed, within the parameters of the In-Betweener's existence are both power and weakness, knowledge and ignorance.
First appearance: WARLOCK #10.
