Second Host

The Second Host[1] or Second Horde[2] is the second of four tests of a given race that has been altered by the enigmatic Celestials. This second host is marked by "wrath and discipline".[1]

In the case of planet Earth, during the Second Host which occurred circa 18,500 B.C., the Celestials observed how the Eternals had ignored the race of humans while the Deviants enslaved it.[2] The Celestials destroyed most of the Deviants and their stronghold of Lemuria, causing it to sink below the ocean.[3] This event has been referred to as the Great Fall[4] or the Great Cataclysm which caused the sinking of Atlantis.[5] The Second Host also trapped the Dreaming Celestial.[6]
