Amatsu-Mikaboshi is a comic deity supervillain that features in Marvel Comics.
Ages ago, in a conflict in the heavens between Amatsu-Mikaboshi and Zeus, the Japanese deity sought out a blacksmith who was tasked with crafting a weapon that would help him win the war. The blacksmith had similarly been seen by Zeus who made the same request with the forge creating two blades; one perfect and one flawed. Amatsu-Mikaboshi was gifted with the Grasscutter sword by the blacksmith which he used in the conflict. (Secret Warriors v1 #10)
During the battle, he was sent alongside the Demogorge to battle the Skrullian goddess Sl'gur't. The Demogorge was killed and Mikaboshi battled the shapeshifter who took his form where he was apparently kill. Following the death of Kly'bn, the heroes fled seemingly leaving the Skrull goddess alive but it was revealed that she was the one who had actually been killed and not Mikaboshi. Amatsu-Mikaboshi took over the realm that contained all the defeated pantheons that the Skrull deities had conquered and decided to begin his own plans now that he was free from the Kami.
