The Black Order is a group of lethal aliens gathered by Thanos in order to help the Mad Titan in his crusade to raze different worlds, and force their inhabitants to pay him tributes. When Corvus Glaive, Thanos's right-hand, sent one of their Outriders to find a new world to raze, the minion targeted Earth. Numerous different members of the Black Order landed on Earth, in different points of the world in order to confront the Illuminati, the possessors of the Infinity Gems.
In New York City, Ebony Maw managed to control Doctor Strange into helping him find what Thanos wanted. In Wakanda, Black Dwarf and his army was defeated by the Black Panther. In Atlantis, Proxima Midnight convinced Namor to tell him where the Infinity Gems were. At the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning, Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight faced the X-Men but left upon realizing the gems were not there. Thanos confronted Black Bolt and defeated him in combat.
Namor told Proxima Midnight the Infinity Gems were in Wakanda, where the Black Order later arrived and quickly seized the country. In the Necropolis, they found the Illuminati's antimatter bombs. Meanwhile, Ebony Maw located another thing Thanos was looking for on Earth, his son, Thane. The Black Order minus Supergiant departed to Greenland, Ebony Maw's location, for Thanos to kill his son. After his defeat at the hands of the Black Panther, Black Dwarf was left to guard The Peak, after it was discovered the Avengers were returning Earth.
Black Dwarf was killed when the Avengers regained control over The Peak, Supergiant was killed when the antimatter bombs she activated were transported along with her by Lockjaw, an Inhuman ally of the Illuminati, to a distant uninhabited planet, Corvus Glaive was killed by Hyperion when the Avengers arrived in Greenland in order to confront Thanos and finally, Ebony Maw double crossed Thanos and freed Thane to let him fight his father and Thane trapped Thanos and Proxima Midnight in an amber construct which left them in a state of "living death".
