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. 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 and 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 a psionic ability called "cosmic awareness," whose exact nature and capacity were not clearly established, and designated him as "Protector of the Universe." Captain Marvel returned to Earth, to resume his fight with Thanos and save the universe from destruction.[2]

Eon designed the Quantum Bands, which he usually gave to his Protectors of the Universe.[3]

Eon was apparently destroyed by Maelstrom.[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 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 have Quasar have a leap of faith, he was dispersed by Blue Marvel.[5]
