Shastra, like every Eternal, was created by the Celestials one million years ago.[1][2] 400,000 years later,[3] a civil war erupted between two factions of the Eternals: the side of Kronos, who cherished piece and non-interference, and the side of Uranos, wanting to use their powers to dominate the planet. Shastra joined Uranos' side, but they were defeated by Kronos' forces and banished from the Earth.[4][5]

When the two dozen exiles landed on the planet Uranus, they conquered the Kree outpost there to make of it their new home.[5] As the Eternal Uranos built a spaceship to return to Earth, Astron refused to follow his ways any longer and, along with three sympathizers, remained on planet Uranus,[6] where they created their own colony.[7]

Shastra accompanied Uranos on his way back to Earth, but their spaceship was destroyed by a Kree fleet investigating the invasion of their outpost, leaving only Shastra, Uranos, and 5 other Eternals alive. The survivors finally decided to abandon their plans for revenge and, instead, created a colony on Saturn's moon of Titan.[8] At some point, however, the Titanians fell to warlike tendencies once more,[9] and, as a result, the colony of Titan was ravaged by yet another civil war, thereby causing the death of all its residents, save for Sui-San, who lived in isolation.[10]

After her death, Shastra was resurrected on Earth, in the Exclusion, where she was mind-wiped alongside the other exiles. After that, they joined Oceanus, who had retired to a vigil of Deviants. Together, they became known as the Oceanic Watch (with the exception of Uranos, who was imprisoned in the Exclusion).[2][3]



Eternal Physiology: Like all Eternals, Shastra's natural physiology grants her a number of superhuman physical attributes. With most Eternals choosing to specialize in particular powers and attributes,[11] it seems Shastra's specialization is Gravity manipulation, which, among other things, allows her to fly.[12]
