Elder of the Universe
Grandmaster (Older brother)
Hydra Attacks: Part 1 (flashback)
The Collector disguises his true form, as gentle humanoid being. He is shown to increase his size on various occasions and become giant.
The Collector appears to have changed from his previous appearance and seems developed more morals.
He was afraid of his older brother, due to the latter always winning. It was not until Spider-Man encouraged him, that he not only overcame his fear but defeated him for once. He gained a more confident side, as he used his brother's insult of second place against him.
The Collector also decided to stop collecting to build a new beginning for himself by finding relationships and connections with others. He became more rational, as he refused to fall for his brother's attempt at having a rematch and voiced his retirement of games.
During Contest of Champions: Part 4, he teams up with Spider-Man and is interested in the things the hero tells him such as love, relationships, and other things. After a long arduous battle, The Collector finally stands up to his brother and attacks him before he is given his brother's staff by Spider-Man and he destroys it, finally victorious.
Afterwards, he tells Spider-Man that he is taking time off collecting to explore the things he learned from the hero. His brother appears and he brings up his previous insult about second place just being "first loser" as the latter isn't amused. The Collector gives Spider-Man a bow of respect and politely turns down his brother's demand of a rematch, stating he officially retires from games. The grandmaster pleaded to him to reconsider but was ignored as they traveled to their ship and flew into space.
