Death is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Captain Marvel #27 (Jul. 1973) and was created by Mike Friedrich and Jim Starlin.
Death is an abstract entity, the embodiment of the end of life in the Marvel Universe, and the opposite of Eternity, the embodiment of the universe.
The character appears sporadically throughout the Marvel universe. The entity appears in the title War Is Hell and forces soldier John Kowalski to undergo a number of lives and deaths as punishment for doing nothing to prevent the invasion of Poland, with Kowalski eventually becoming an aspect of Death; in the title Ghost Rider posing as "Death Ryder" to test Johnny Blaze and becoming fascinated with the Titan Thanos.
After killing herself, Phoenix finds herself on a strange construct at the edge of space, alone with a construction worker. Having nowhere else to go, she helps him with the work, suddenly reliving her crimes as Dark Phoenix as a result. Afterwards, she understands that the worker is Death and her experiences help her understand her own role in the cosmic order. She decides to return to life, having learned from her mistakes. Left alone, Death pities her, as there are pieces of the puzzle she isn’t aware of, but she will learn the hard way.
