Cthulhu is described as being gigantic, (think Godzilla-size), having the body of a Dragon, with small bat-like wings, and a large head that is a
combination of Dragon and Octopus, complete with Tentacles hanging from the face.
He is actually the High-Priest of the Pantheon of Lovecraft's Space Gods.
Cthulhu was complete fiction, totally created from H.P., but some of his other creations, such as Dagon, were based on actual Gods that had been
worshipped by man.
Cthulhu was the high priest, and yes, most of the other space-deities were truly cosmic and monstrous in power, size, dimensions, etc.
Remember, these things weren't just "monsters". These things were always described as being able to move through different dimensions, rule over,
or capable of destroying entire universes, and being equally "Godlike" in Intelligence, (and Madness).
In "comic book" terms, think "Galactus", "the Watcher", "the Beyonder". Only, dark, dark, dark and Crazy.
