What does CGC consider to be the first appearance of The One Above All? I've heard that it's Eternals #7, but all the CGC's I've seen doesn't state that it's the 1st appearance though.

Ugh. Does anyone even know what issue it is? I've heard Doctor Strange # 13, Fantastic Four # 511, Sensational Spider-Man # 40, Strange Tales # 157, etc. Can anyone help?

The Living Tribunal is a fictional cosmic entity appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Strange Tales #157 (June 1967) and was created by Stan Lee, Marie Severin, and Herb Trimpe.

 

I got this from a google search for "  first appearance of The One Above All"      Does it help?  It's certainly the oldest of the comics you suggested.

The Living Tribunal and the One Above All are different. Strange Tales #157 is the first appearance of the Living Tribunal.

The Marvel Chronology Project says The One Above All (the leader of the Celestials) was "behind the scenes" in Eternals #7 & 13.  His first actual appearance may be in Thor #287 by Roy Thomas and Keith Pollard.  Confusingly, there's a similarly named character One-Above-All, who is the Living Tribunal's master.  The Tribunal is said to have referred to him at some point in one of his appearances in Strange Tales.  The first actual appearance of One-Above-All may be in Doctor Strange #13 by Steve Englehart and Gene Colan.

I think he is referring to the second One Above All. One is the Supreme God of Marvel, and one is a Celestial.

It is fantastic four 511. I saw an image on google of this copy CGC graded and it said Jack Kirby appearance. Closest thing I have seen.

Thanks everyone. To posters commenting before, I am talking about the 'creator', not the Celestial with the same name. And yes, most people say that FF 511 is his first appearance. Why doesn't CGC state that on their labels? Will this change anytime soon or am I only holding my breath?

You have to submit the comic to cgc and include a letter or something like that stating why label should be changed. good luck let me know if you do
