History

Phastos was an Eternal created by the Celestials in the World Forge. Over the course of his existence he aided the birth of many Celestials by protecting the native populations of their planets from Deviants until the Celestial could hatch from the planet. Like most other Eternals, he had his memories reset and stored in between the missions, believing himself to be from the planet called Olympia.

7,000 years ago Phastos was one of the ten Eternals assigned by Arishem to Earth, alongside Ajak, Ikaris, Sprite, Kingo, Makkari, Druig, Gilgamesh, Thena and Sersi. The Eternals initially setlled in the ancient Babylon, advancing human development and protecting them from Deviants. Over the centuries Phastos aided the human race in developing their technology. After six and a half thousand years, the last Deviants on Earth were believed to be destroyed and Ajak told the others that their mission was over and to go their own ways and live lives among the Humans. Phastos at one point fell ito despair after witessing firsthand the destruction wrought at Hiroshima, but found a new meaning in family. As "Phil Stoss", he married a man named Ben, with who he raised their son Jack.

In 2023 the Blip suddenly restored half of the humanity snapped by Thanos back to life, accelerating the awakening of the Celestial Tiamut. The Deviants have suddenly reappeared, with a few survivors being thawed off from the ice. Phastos was visited by Ikaris and Sersi, who informed him that Ajak an Gilgamesh were killed by the Deviants and that the mission of Eternals on Earth would soon end with the Emergence of the Celestial Tiamut which would destroy the planet. Seeking to save his new family, Phastos joined the others and conceived of an idea to have them form the Uni-Mind and empower Druig who could put Tiamut back to sleep, at least until they could find a way to awaken him without destroying the Earth in process. However, Ikaris was revealed as the one behind Ajak's death, being loyal to Arishem and the cause of awakening Tiamut. Sprite chose to follow him, while Kingo believed in the same cause but refused to fight the others and left.

The remaining five Eternals planned to form the Uni-Mind, but this attempt was violently stopped by Ikaris, negating that option. Makkari and Phastos fought Ikaris, and Phastos managed to use technology to restrain him for a little while. Eventually, the Eternals formed the Uni-Mind which empowered Sersi and enabled her to to turn Tiamut to stone before he could fully awake. Ikaris then departed, while Sersi turned Sprite into a Human with what was left of the Uni-Mind's power. Afterwards, Druig, Makkari and Thena departed the planet aboard the Domo to look for other Eternals while Sersi, Phastos and Kingo planned to resume their lives among the Humans. However, they were abducted by Arishem, who planned to use their memories to judge whether humanity was truly worth saving over the life of a Celestial.[1]
