X-Men Emperor Vulcan Vol 1 2 Textless

Shi'ar legends said that the homeworld of the M'Kraan Crystal was the first planet to form and was as old as time. Whatever race lived there was long gone and the only structure that withstood the ravages of time was the M'Kraan Crystal. It is said its creators named the Crystal "the end of all that is." Since it's discovery the planet remained under Shi'ar protection.[2]

The M'Kraan Crystal was a huge pink crystal of unknown origins, which was older than known history. Inside of the crystal there was a beautiful alien city, that outstretched the room that should have been there by far. Also there was no movement, as time and space had no meaning here. At the center of the city was a glowing energy sphere, which hosted a neutron galaxy. The sun of this neutron galaxy was a nexus point of all matter and antimatter of not only the universe, but all the different realities in existence. The crystal also housed the White Hot Room.[3]

Should the Crystal's stasis fields be destroyed, the gravitational forces would extend into the universe, drawing all of it into a black hole, causing the universe to collapse. This was why the crystal was was often referred to as the "Nexus of all Realities". Every million years, when nine stars enter a certain alignment, the Crystal would open a gateway to what legend said was absolute power. For this reason, the crystal was guarded by powerful beings named Jahf and Modt.[4]

Uncanny X-Men Vol 1 485 Textless

Emperor D'Ken of the Shi'ar Empire attempted to use the legendary power of the M'Kraan Crystal. His sister Lilandra, rightly believing such an attempt would destroy the universe, enlisted the aid of the X-Men to stop his plan. With the help of the Starjammers, D'Ken was defeated. The Crystal was repaired by the power of the Phoenix Force (who had taken the form and persona of Jean Grey) and the universe was saved.[5]
