Master Order is an abstract cosmic entity that embodies order, discipline, law, and structure. Along with his "brother" Lord Chaos they ensure and represent the balance between chaos and order. Their origins are unknown. A long time ago they managed to create the In-Betweener and charged him with the task of keeping the cosmos in balance for them. The In-Betweener was then sent out into the cosmos to fulfill its mission.
One Day Lord Chaos and Master Order sensed the threat of Thanos of Titan and began to manipulate the lives and events of Spider-Man, the Avengers, the Thing, and Adam Warlock in order to bring about Thanos' downfall. After Thanos was defeated Spider-Man freed Adam Warlock from the Soul Gem and had fulfilled his purpose which the two beings had apparently been planning and manipulating his life since birth for that one purpose.
Some time later the two, along with several other cosmic entities observed a chess game between Odin and Dormammu. Lord Chaos and Master Order were then seen with several other "omnipotent" beings plotting against the Beyonder several months later.
Lord Chaos and Master Order were then summoned by the Silver Surfer and Doctor Strange in order to gain control of their agent, the In-Betweener. After learning of the In-Betweener's plan to restore the cosmic balance by creating universal insanity the two imprisoned him for his ploy. During this battle Galactus devoured the Elders of the Universe who attacked him with the Infinity Gems. This caused a shift in the cosmic balance which gained the attention of Lord Chaos and Master Order. However shorlty afterwards Master Order and Lord Chaos ressurected the Elders and restored the balance. After some time the entity known as Eon died. Lord Chaos and Master Order attended Eon's funeral along with many other abstract beings.
After a long time Thanos had resurfaced and acquired the Infinity Gauntlet, boosting his powers to that of an omnipotent god. Disturbed by the increase in his power a meeting of abstract and metaphysical beings is called. Lord Chaos, Master Order, Galactus, Eternity, Infinity, Master Hate, Mistress Love, and many other beings arrive and decide to join Adam Warlock in opposing the mad Titan. Soon the group of beings attack Thanos and his consort Nebula. They failed and are all turned into stone, but are freed once Adam wrested the gauntlet from Thanos.
Determined to not let the gauntlet be possessed by Warlock Eternity calls upon the Living Tribunal to have Adam set on trial. All of the beings who fought Thanos arrive and are all in awe of the Tribunals power as he determines that Adam is not worthy of the gauntlet and must give one of the Infinity Gems to a being he trusts. The trial is adjourned and Lord Chaos, Master Order, and the other cosmic entities leave. Master Order then arrives with other beings and question the Beyonder and a being called Dave in the Dimension of Manifestations. Recently Master Order along with other cosmic beings who opposed Thanos when he acquired the Heart of the Infinite.
