Astron, like every Eternal, was created by the Celestials. 400,000 years later, a civil war erupted between two factions of the Eternals: the side of Kronos, who cherished piece and non-interference, and the side of Uranos, wanting to use their powers to dominate the planet. Astron joined Uranos' side, but they were defeated by Kronos' forces and banished from the Earth.
When the two dozen exiles landed on the planet Uranus, they conquered the Kree outpost there to make of it their new home. As the Eternal Uranos built a spaceship to return to Earth, Astron refused to follow his ways any longer and, along with three sympathizers, remained on the planet Uranus, where they created their own colony.
He and the other Uranian Eternals were presumably killed by Deathurge when he pierced their protective dome. After his death, Astron was resurrected on Earth, in the Exclusion, and eventually joined Oceanus' Oceanic Watch.
In Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe (Vol. 2) #4, Astron was erroneously stated to have first appeared in What If? #27.
