Elder of the Universe
Hydra Attacks: Part 1 (flashback)
Taneleer Tivan better known as Collector is a cosmic being that travels the galaxy searching for specimens to add to his collection.
The Collector was afraid of his 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 became more rational, as he refused to fall for his brother's attempt at having a rematch and voiced his retirement of games.
