History

Astron, like every Eternal, was created by the Celestials.[1][2] 400,000 years later,[3] 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.[4][5]

When the two dozen exiles landed on the planet Uranus, they conquered the Kree outpost there to make of it their new home.[5] 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,[6] where they created their own colony.[7]

He and the other Uranian Eternals were presumably killed by Deathurge when he pierced their protective dome.[8] After his death, Astron was resurrected on Earth, in the Exclusion, and eventually joined Oceanus' Oceanic Watch.[2]

Notes

  • Astron was once considered to be one of the first generation Eternal[9][10]
