First Appearance

The Eternals are an evolutionary offshoot of humanity gifted with amazing powers and abilities[14][2] to look after the human race throughout the ages.[15] One million years ago, the Celestials created one hundred Eternals, and left.[16] Since then, they've lived secluded on Earth, rarely intefering[17] and, when they perish, they are simply reborn.[15]

After a devastating civil war that resulted in the exile of Uranos and his followers, the Eternals chose a path of peace and dedicated their lives to better themselves and their society. The best example of their newfound capabilities being the power of the Uni-Mind, which is created when several Eternals come together and join their will and intelligence into one powerful entity.[18]

Throughout the millennia, the Eternals built great cities, including their current home, Olympia,[15][19] which provided the setting for their meeting with the Olympians, the gods of Ancient Greece. After noticing the similarities between both species, they formed an alliance and the Eternals acted as the gods' representatives on Earth for a while.[20] Recently, the Eternals went mad and turned against each other or committed suicide, but they have since been revived and are slowly starting to return to their peaceful ways.[15]

History

Origins: The First Host

For the full presentation of this event, please consult the First Host page.

About one million years ago,[2] the "evolutionary borderline between apes and humans" emerged:[21] Homo erectus.[11]

The Celestials, intrigued by the versatility of human genes, sent their First Host to perform genetic tests and experiment on this species.[22][23]

When the first host got to Planet Earth, the celestial Gammenon the Gatherer collected a few specimens, which Ziran the Tester mutated to create one hundred grotesques Deviants (Homo descendus). After Ziran was done with its brood, Nezarr the Calculator performed his own tests and created 100 superior Eternals (Homo immortalis).[10][15] The Celestial known as Tiamut the Communicator also helped design a few specimens, including the Deviant Tantalus[24] and the Eternal Makkari.[25]

Proto-humans being colected by the Celestials

As these creations were released back on Earth, the Eternals were given three principles:[15]

  • Protect Celestials.
  • Protect the machine.
  • Correct excess deviation.

With this in mind, the Eternals, led by Kronos secluded themselves to secretly protect the Earth. While the Deviants established an empire in the Kingdom of Lemuria.[23]

Eternal Schism

For the full presentation of this event, please consult the Uranosian War page.

Starting out as nomadic people,[19] the Eternals eventually established themselves, creating the city of Titanos[26] in North America.[15][note 1]

Thousands of 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 his brother Uranos, wanting to use their powers to dominate the planet.[26] Kronos' side prevailed, with the help of Oceanus, and Uranos and his followers were banished, as well as their war-like ways.[3][26] Since then, this period has been almost completely wiped from the memory of its participants.[15]

The War

Around 750,000 years ago,[27] the two dozen exiles landed on Planet Uranus, while conquering the Kree outpost there in the process.[28] As Uranos built a spaceship to return to Earth, Astron refused to follow his ways any longer and, along with three sympathizers, remained on Uranus,[29] where they created their own colony.[30]

The spaceship was then destroyed by a Kree fleet investigating the invasion of their outpost, thus leaving only seven Eternals alive. Those that survived decided to abandon their plans for revenge and, instead, created a colony on Saturn's moon Titan.[31]

Meanwhile, the surviving Eternals on Uranus encountered the native Uranians. Recognizing them as exiles, the Uranians allowed the remaining Eternals to live with them, under the condition that, if they ever left their enclosed environment, they would face destruction.[32]

At some point, the Titanians fell to warlike tendencies once more. As a result, the colony of Titan was ravaged by yet another civil war, thereby causing the death of all its residents save for the wooman Sui-San, who lived in isolation.[27][33]

Second Host

For the full presentation of this event, please consult the Great Cataclysm pages.

Back on Earth, unlike the Eternals, the Deviants had "bred like rabbits", and took over the world, enslaving humanity. The Eternals fought against them, but, when they realized their numbers couldn't compare to the millions of Deviants, they had no alternative but to call the Celestials.[34][35]

Circa 18,000 B.C.[34][2] the Second Host of Celestials finally arrived on Earth. After being attacked by the Deviants, led by Emperor Phraug, and seeing a world fallen into chaos, the Celestials soon delivered their judgment and wiped out most of the Deviants.[34][35] In the process, they caused Lemuria and Atlantis to sink all the way to the bottom of the ocean floor.[34] In a general way, all of civilization, both Deviant and Human, had been wiped off the face of the Earth.[36]

The Great Cataclysm

The Eternal Utnapishtim built an ark in order to save some human beings as well as animals from the flooding. Later, Ikaris came to guide them to a mountain top, where the survivors could disembark to restart society.[34][37]

For reasons unknown, when the second host departed, they punished one of their own, Tiamut, by trapping its essence and leaving it in the care of Valkin beneath the Pyramid of the Four Winds. From then on, that Celestial became known only as the Dreaming Celestial, as he laid to rest for thousands of years.[38][34][24][25]

Death of Kronos

Circa 3000 BC[39] Kronos managed to isolate the cosmic energy that empowered the Eternals, but the volatile containment tube shattered and exploded. The explosion transformed Kronos into a cosmic entity, but also killed all the other Eternals and brought the city of Titanos to the ground, almost destroying The Machine, the artificial intelligence that serves the Eternals.[26][15][note 2]

Kronos Ascending

After being reborn in the Reactivation Chambers[40][15] the Eternals contained the anomaly generated by the explosion[15] and discovered that Kronos' experiment had increased their powers.[33] With their new abilities, the Eternals then discovered they could join their will and intelligence into one powerful entity, which they called the Uni-Mind.[13]

Despite being more unified than ever before, the Eternals still disagreed on the core goals of their society. The majority of the Eternals, led by one of Kronos' sons, Zuras, believed that they shouldn't tinker with their cosmic potential and no new Eternal should be created. Another son of Kronos, A'Lars, and a small fraction of their numbers believed they should keep expanding The Machine and create new Eternals, via biological and technological methods.[23][41]

The Uni-Mind

To avoid disunity, however, one solitary Llarsite was allowed to found a colony as an experiment. A'Lars was chosen and adopted the name "Mentor", before settling on the lost colony of Titan.[23][41]

There, he located Sui-San, and together they used their genetic material to found a new species of Eternal-derived beings, the Titans. They developed Titan into a wonder of science, building the super-computer ISAAC to help them run the environment. As they flourished, some Eternals of Earth started believing that the Zurasian fraction had been overly conservative. Little did they know that Sui-San had just given birth to Thanos, who would one day become one of the Universe's greatest menaces.[33][23][41]

With Titanos destroyed, Zuras led his Eternals to create new cities: their capital, Olympia, in the mountains of Greece; Oceana, in the Pacific Ocean; and Polaria, in Siberia.[33][15]

Antiquity

As Humanity began to develop new civilizations, the Eternals started to mingle with their genetic cousins. They taught them to plant grain, showed them how to work metal and introduced them to writing.[35]

Makkari teaching the Egyptians how to write

At the end of the Hyborian Age, the Olympian gods sought worshipers. Zeus lay Mount Olympus near the Eternals' city of Olympia, thereby deciding that the Olympians would be worshipped by the people of the land now known as Greece.[20]

While meeting with the Eternals, the Olympians soon noticed the physical similarities between them, as seen with the comparison of Zuras with Zeus and of Athena with Azura. As a result, they decided to form a pact: the Eternals themselves would act as the gods' representatives on Earth (and Azura herself took on the name of Thena in order to seal the pact). However, an unintended consequence of this treaty was that, over the years, many humans would come to think that the Eternals were the real Olympian gods.[20]

Mayas, Inca and Aztecs Empires

Around 1000 AD,[33] Virako and a group of Polar Eternals traveled through America in order to bring civilization to its inhabitants while posing as gods to the ancestors of the Aztec, Incas and Mayas. Virako assumed the roles of Quetzalcoatl and Kukulcan, while his fellow Eternals remained in each empire in order to watch over them and push them forward to progress.[36] In South America, a new Eternal city was founded and given the name Celestia.[15]

Around that time, the Eternals were also involved in a clash with the Deviants and mutates Dromedan, Tutinax, Thunder and the World-Devouring Worm, while gaining the assistance of the Asgardian thunder god Thor Odinson. The battle ended in the death of the Eternal Virako, who would be remembered as Viracocha. In order to safeguard themselves and the Celestials' goals, the Eternals erased Thor's memory of the encounter, resulting in the thunder god not having his memories restored until many centuries later.[36][note 3]

At some point in the century that followed, there was also a conflict known as the Eternals/Inhumans War (or the legendary War of Eterninhuma), during which the Eternals created the Time Sword, later destroyed by the Inhumans in retaliation.[42]

Third Host and Deviant-Eternal Truce

For the full presentation of this event, please consult the Third Host page.

Soon after, the Celestials came to Earth for the Third Host. The Eternals all left the Inca land, save for Ajak, who was left to deal with the Celestials.[36] With the arrival of the Third Host, the Eternals worked with the Celestials in their cultivation process, while making the final preparations for their next scheduled visit. To this end, the Polarian Eternal Ajak was assigned to be the communicator for the Celestials and was then placed in suspended animation within the Temple of the Space Gods, and Ikaris was charged with attuning his senses to detect the Celestials upon their next arrival on Earth.[14][33]

Following these events, the Deviants made a truce with the Eternals, with both sides agreeing to not interfere with humanity until the Fourth Host arrived.[43][44]

20th century

In 1906, during San Francisco Earthquake, the Dreaming Celestial's chamber was damaged. The Eternals arrived and formed a Uni-Mind to fix it. The eternally 11-year-old Sprite, apparently affected by the Mahd Wy'ry, then realized he could use the Celestials powers to change his Eternal life allowing him to finally grow up. To accomplish this, one of his first steps was to make the Eternals forget about the Reactivation Chambers.[45][46]

Eternals' Reactivation Chambers

In the 1930s, with the outbreak of World War II, Earth scientist Matthew Grayson made contact with the Uranian Eternals,[47] who provided him with the knowledge to build a rocket to escape Nazi Germany with his infant son Robert. The Eternals on Uranus then welcomed the Grayson family with open arms, raising Robert as one of their own. The Uranian Eternals were secretly plotting to re-establish ties with the planet Earth in an attempt to be reunited with their planet of origin and influence the society into what they viewed as a utopia. Monitoring the progress of the war on Earth, the Uranian Eternals waited for the ideal opportunity to begin their agenda, and upon witnessing the activities of Earth's super-soldier Captain America decided to groom Robert into the image of a super-hero the people of Earth could relate to; in other words, their ambassador to Earth.[48]

Activity by the earthbound Eternals during this period was at first minimal in the 1940s until the Deviant warlord Kro began involving himself in the affairs of humans by posing as Pluto. He initially interacted with the Nazis during the War, prompting Zuras to send Makkari to deal with him as Mercury.[49][50] Makkari later renamed himself Hurricane and continued to battle Kro and other menaces during the war.[51][52][53][50]

Robert, the Uranian

In 1950, the Uranian Eternals dispatched Robert to Earth to establish himself as a super-hero. This was fraught with complications due to the rise of the Cold War, but thanks to some publicity from Timely Comics and the new name Marvel Boy, the Uranian soon became a renowned super-hero.[48]

Marvel Boy also came to the defense of his adopted people, such as when Uranus was invaded by the Satanians, who attempted to sow dissent among the masses,[54] or when fighting corruption among the Uranian police force,[55] and even preventing a plot from Uranian dissidents to steal a new atomic formula.[56] However, these stories were adapted by Timely Comics into comic books about Marvel Boy's exploits and may be false.[48]

Eventually, Marvel Boy determined that the human race needed to find its own way, with no tampering by the Uranian Eternals. Unbowed, the Uranian Eternals planned for the return of Marvel Boy and began grooming the Eternal Thelius to be their Marvel Boy replacement.[57][58] Soon, the native Uranians learned of this plan and, after considering it to be in violation of their pact with the Eternals, wiped them all out. The dying Eternals sent a distress call to Marvel Boy, who came in answer to it, while learning the truth of his adopted people along the way. He arrived too late to save them and was absorbed into the Uranian hive mind, which resulted in his biology being adapted into a hybrid form. Meanwhile, his doppelganger, Thelis — with an incomplete transfer of his memories — was rushed to completion and was released. Marvel Boy, being bonded to the Uranians, was unable to stop Thelis as he flew to Earth, which he would not reach until the modern age.[32]

In the meantime, the human race finally split the atom. A concerned group of Eternals, Humans, and Deviants then formed the secret Damocles Foundation to study the next dominant species on Earth, and determined this to be the Mutants.[59]

Pixie and the First Line

By the 1960s the Eternal Pixie had joined the super hero team First Line[60] and she also convinced Makkari to join for a while.[61] In adittion to them, other members of the Eternals continued to infiltrated the world of normal humans. Sersi and Kingo Sunen got into show business[62][63] while Valkin, Druig, Aginar and Zarin joined the KGB.[63]

At some point, the Eternals alo helped the Inhuman King Black Bolt, who was worried that his city Attilan would be discovered by Humans and attacked. Zuras, who had been monitoring Black Bolt for decades, took the Eternals to the Himalayas and made them use their transmutation powers to created the foundations for a whole city away from the humans' sight. With this work done, the Eternals bid farewell to Black Bolt and told him that building the city was now up to him.[64]

Modern Age

Fourth Host

For the full presentation of this event, please consult the Fourth Host page.

When the Fourth Host of Celestials was approaching Earth, Ikaris (under the guise of cameraman Ike Harris) led archaeologist Daniel Damian and his daughter Margo to the Celestials' beacon and revealed the true history of Earth to them. They were then attacked by a force of Deviants led by Kro.[14] Ikaris fought them off and reawakened Ajak, who activated the beacon.[65] When the Deviants reacted by attacking New York City, capturing Ikaris and Sersi, Zuras ordered Makkari and Thena to defend the city.[66] Thena then reached a truce with Kro, and together they decided to reveal their races' existence to humanity via Samuel Holden, an anthropology Professor at City College.[67]

Revealing themselves to mankind

Odin of Asgard, who feared the Celestials, got the combined Pantheons of Earth to lent him their power so he could attack the Fourth Host. Empowered by the Skyfathers and the united life essence of the Asgardian people, Odin possessed the Destroyer armor and grew to the size of the Celestials, wielding the Odinsword in defense of Earth. Despite some intial reluctance, The Eternals, led by Zuras, formed the Uni-Mind and joined the Destroyer in confronting the Fourth Host. During the battle, the Celestials struck the Uni-Mind, causing it to dismantle back into individual Eternals.[68]

In ther aftermath of the conffrontation, the Celestials judged in Earth's favor and departed, but Zuras, who had deliberately taken the brunt of the Celestials' assault, perished as a result of the Uni-Mind's dissolution.[69]

Sprite's Plan

Years later, Sprite's plans finally came to fruition, as he tapped into the power of the Dreaming Celestial and wiped the memories of his fellow Eternals to give them new lives as human beings, so that no one would interfere with his plans. Sprite pretended to be a child actor named Colin in a show called That's So Sprite.[45]

Sprite's plan in motion

Eventually, the other Eternals saw through the illusion and discovered that Sprite was responsible for rewriting everyone's lives. After his plan was thwarted, Sprite was murdered by the revived Zuras for what he had done to his fellow Eternals. Nonetheless, the Dreaming Celestial had been awakened and now stood in San Francisco unmovable, judging the Human Race, with Makkari being the only one capable of communicating with him.[70]

As Sersi and Makkari rekindled their relationship, Makkari's recurring sessions with the Dreaming Celestial became a source of constant worry for Sersi, who felt her loved one slowly fading away.[71] After having enough of it, she finally decided to confront the Celestial, determined to find the reason for this deadly bond. And, despite almost getting killed, the Celestial revealed that Makkari had been chosen as his link to humanity before the arrival of The Horde, and she too was part of its grand plan: She was the one who had to protect Makkari.[72]

Unfortunately, Sersi failed in her mission and Makkari got killed, with no way of being revived thanks to the destruction of the Reactivation Chambers. Makkari's death triggered a countdown to global annihilation and, with no other alternative presenting itself, Sersi then pushed her powers to the limit by transmuting her own body into a perfect replica of Makkari and then replacing his conscious with her own.[40]

Thanks to Sersi, the connection with the Celestial was restored, which eventually led to the Horde's defeat by intervention of The Fulcrum, a cosmic entity above even the Celestials themselves.[73]

After the mass suicidal event that led to the Eternals' demise,[74] they were once again reborn in the reactivation chambers. Sprite was resurrected as a female and, due to her crimes, she was imprisoned in the Exclusion and was only restored to her last safe backup. By the time Ikaris was resurrected, the other Eternals had decided that Sprite was to be freed and Zuras appointed Ikaris to look after the trickster.[15]

Biology

Reproduction

The Eternals of Earth do not procreate among themselves,[16] but there have been cases of crossbreeding with Humans[17] and Deviants.[17][75]

The Titans reproduced via biological or technological methods.[23][41]

Diseases

Deviant Syndrome

There exists a genetic predisposition among the Eternals known as Deviant Syndrome.[76][77] That syndrome is considered a mutation,[77] and those affected mutants[78] and deviants.[78]

Mahd Wy'ry

The Mahd Wy'ry, also known as the Eternal madness, was an illness caused by extreme longevity of the Eternals. Despite their nigh-indestructible bodies, the Eternals still possessed a human mind, which after years of accumulating knowledge would sometimes drive the affected Eternal mad, much like old age senility in humans.[46][79]

The only "cure" for the Mahd Wy'ry was to kill the affected Eternal and revive them with the last safe backup.[79][15]

The disease itself usually takes centuries in order to drive an Eternal mad, but the process can be accelerated, which was the case for Sersi, where it occurred within a few months.[80]

It was postulated that the Uni-Mind's purpose was to wash away those anxieties and fears of the Eternals regarding the overweight of experience on their soul.[79]

Uni-Mind

The Uni-Mind is a merger of Eternals (and also other species).

Please consult the Uni-Mind for more details.

Gann Josin

In the culture of the Eternals, a Gann Josin[79] (or Gan-Josin)[81] is both a title attributed to an Eternal's chosen life-mate and the bond itself.[79]

When comparing this bond to the collective consciousness that makes up an Uni-Mind, the Gann Josin can be seen as an intimate version of it since, like the Uni-Mind, it creates a mental union,[81] but on a much smaller level since it can only be formed between two people. As a result, this bond makes the Eternal and its chosen partner lifelong soulmates while also creating a telepathic/empathic bond between them.[79]

The Eternal known as Sersi took fellow Avenger Dane Whitman as her intended Gann Josin, in the hopes of helping her control her emotion while being affected by the Mahd Wy'ry.[79]

According to Sprite, few Eternals choose humans for the Gann Josin.[79]

The people affected by the Gann Josin have distinctive full-red eyes.[79][80]

For a human to break a Gann Josin is an astounding act.[80]

Alternate Universe Eternals

Earth X (Earth-9997)

The past history of the Eternals of Earth-9997 mostly mirrors that of their Earth-616 counterparts. However, it's been revealed that, at least on Earth-9997, the Celestials' intentions for the Eternals was not exactly as beneficial as they had thought. The Celestials' method of reproduction is to impregnate the planet with a portion of their energy (or embryo) as well as imbibe Vibranium into the planet's core. Eventually, after centuries of gestation, the new Celestial would be born while destroying the planet in the process. In order to protect the Celestial growing within the planet, they would manipulate the DNA of the dominant species to act as unknowing anti-bodies. On Earth, it would be the pre-historic version of man that would be manipulated in such a fashion.[citation needed]

Eternals of Earth X

Their first attempt yielded the Deviants, unstable creatures who were born in new and more horrifying forms within each generation, making them, as a result, naturally evil. In order to counteract these creatures, the Celestials created the Eternals, god-like beings who were immortal and had fantastic powers. They would act as the shepherds of humanity as well as its defenders against the Deviants and other invaders while baseline humanity went through the Celestials' natural evolutionary course to gain super-powers.[citation needed]

In the following years, the Eternals (who were mistaken for the Gods of popular myth) grew disinterested in humanity and became reclusive, thereby allowing the Deviants to take control of the Earth. This would prompt the Celestials to come again and free humanity from the Deviant rule by smashing their empire and sending them underground, while making the loss of said empire a defeat that the Deviants would not be able to recover from.[citation needed]

In the modern age, the Celestials have interacted with humanity in much the same way they have on Earth-616. In recent history, the Eternals found it fit to leave the Earth for good; however, their reasoning for doing so remains unrevealed. They would take up residence on an as yet unidentified planet. However, (due to poor luck), the planet the Eternals chose to reside on would also have it to be another world impregnated by the Celestials, and, due to the Celestial birth occurring on that world, the planet would soon be destroyed. As a result, the Eternals found themselves encased in Vibranium and left floating in space. As they are immortal, they saw this as a fate worse than death.[citation needed]

Their bodies were found by the Inhuman Royal Family, who believed that Vibranium was the cause of the planet's destruction and decided to return to Earth to warn its heroes. It would not be until years later when Cable (now consumed entirely by the Techno-Organic Virus and living below Sentinel City) would ask Iron Maiden (who had full control over Vibranium) to go into space and free the Eternals. This is because one in particular, Sersi, had the ability to use her powers to restore Cable to his original form. Whether or not Iron Maiden was successful remains to be seen.[citation needed]

Notes

While being resurrected via the Reactivation Chambers, Eternals can take advantage of the process to switch appearance (including sex). According to Ikaris, this is "common" every twenty or twenty-five thousand years.[15]
