Eon was a cosmic entity associated with the concept of Time. It served the universe from its own dimension, the Eonverse, while appointing various Protectors of the Universe as his champions. It was also an offspring of Eternity, as well as parent to the cosmic being Epoch.[1]

When Thanos was executing his plans to destroy all life in the universe. Eon teleported the Kree Captain Marvel to him to meet him in person, where he enlightened Mar-Vell through a series of visions, including showing him the past of the Eternals, Thanos and Titan. He granted the Kree with the power of Cosmic Awareness and designated him the "Protector of the Universe." Captain Marvel returned to Earth, to resume his fight with Thanos and save the universe from destruction.[2]

Eon is believed to have designed the Quantum Bands, which he gave to his Protectors of the Universe as their personal weapons.[3]

Eon was apparently slain by Maelstrom, who stole the secret of Cosmic Awareness from him.[4]

Assuming the form of the Angel of Vengeance[5] Eon[6] appeared to Wendell Vaughn in the White Room after his apparent death in the Infinity War. The Angel offered to kill the one who had killed Quasar in order for Wendell to move onward, but Wendell was suspicious of the Angel's true nature. He assumed that the Angel was a manifestation of Eon, and would not allow blood to be shed in his name simply to leave the White Room. As the Angel was trying to inspire Quasar to have a leap of faith, he was dispersed by Blue Marvel.[5]

Eon's place in the cosmic hierarchy, immense body, and knowledge were taken over by his heir, Epoch.



Eon could reanimate dead bodies or create arms from his body.[citation needed]

Eon was the universal Keeper of Cosmic Awareness, which enables those having it to know what is happening or could happen anywhere in the universe at any time. He could gift this Awareness to any suitable living being. Notable recipients include Captain Mar-Vell, Quasar, and Moondragon.

Being a cosmic being, Eon had an immense storehouse of knowledge that could not be measured, and was considered one of the greatest scholars and teachers of the cosmos.

Eon's true body was immense in size, nearly an AU in diameter, making him one of the largest living beings in existence. After his 'death', his body was so large that his heir Epoch was able to take it over because it hadn't realized he was dead yet.


Eon had almost no defensive abilities for his body, save his immense size.

  • The inspiration for Eon came when Jim Starlin saw a grease stain on a garbage bag on a street corner which had particular shape he found fascinating.[7]
