History

The Trader is a master negotiator, taking great pride in the "art of the deal." He is at his best when he is trying to buy or sell something whether it is a planet or a personal service. A true victory for the Trader involves not only convincing his opponent to trade, but to do so at an exchange favorable to the Trader AND for the opponent to be convinced that he (the Trader's opponent) got the better end of the deal.

At some point, the Trader somehow joined the group known as the Elders of the Universe. He then appeared during the Elders' scheme to slay the planet-devouring Galactus and thus destroy the Universe in a bid to attain expanded powers. Their plan failed due to the involvement of Galactus' former Herald, the Silver Sufer, and his ally, Mantis.

Powers

Like all Elders of the Universe, the Trader is connected to the energy of the universe due to his single-minded devotion to his "hobby," giving him cosmic awareness of the universe (although this manifests in precognitive flashes which may require long periods of meditation.) Presumably, the Trader can also tap into this "power primordial" to manipulate cosmic energies, including gravitational, electro-magnetic, and light, the full extent of which remains to be revealed. Also, as with the Grandmaster's pact with Death, all Elders are unaffected by aging, disease, or toxins.
