Actually, the Marvel Universe does have a few characters who can do such atrocities. And luckily, we just know the guy who’s responsible for it.

Here’s Who Cut the Celestial’s Head in Marvel’s GOTG Vol 1

In Marvel Comics, the Symbiote God Knull cut off the head of the Celestial. Knull is the person who brought the Symbiotes like Venom & Void into existence. So when the Celestials created the Sun and light, they invaded his place and wanted him to become the King in Black. However, Knull rejected their offer.

He then created the Necrosword with his first Symbiote and decapitated one of the Celestials. This Necrosword is specially made for slaying powerful beings and Gods. Fun Fact: It is the same sword that was wielded by Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love and Thunder.

After decapitating, Knull resided in the Celestial’s Head and refined his blade. In the process, he also used the divine power emerging from the corpse. Later, the Knowhere was taken over by the Collector where he established his Museum, which was later destroyed by Thanos during the events of Avengers Infinity War.

Eventually, the Guardians bought this place from the Collector after the blip and rebuilt it. They installed thrusters to Knowhere so they can travel anywhere. And the rest is the story.
