Recently, Marvel Studio has drops the first official teaser trailer for Eternals film. The trailer was bang with big star cast. Before the arrival of the Eternals film, let’s find out about their origins. Where did they come from? Are they defenders of humanity or enemies?
Eternals was first revealed by Jack Kirby at Marvel Comics in The Eternals # 1 Comics in July 1976. Marvel’s Fantastic Four, Thor and Captain America much-discussed characters are due to him. Although Jack Kirby has also worked for DC Comics. He produced comics such as The New Gods and The Forth World for DC. The character of Zack Snyder’s Justice League villain Darkseid is his brainchild.
According to comics books, when the Celestials came to Earth millions of years ago, they experimented DNA of apes with their cosmic chemistry. But due to disturbances in the experiment,three new species were born. These species were, ‘Humans’ ‘Deviants’ and ‘Eternals’. Humans i.e. we who had no power. Deviants were the ones who became monsters after experiments, such as Thanos. As for the Eternals, they looked like Humans, but they were immortals. The Eternals had divine powers, who were given the responsibility of protecting the Humans by the Celestials. In a way, the people of the earth started worshiping him as God. Ego has been considered one of the most powerful celestials, which has brought us into James Gunn’s Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
As time passed, there was a rift between the Eternals. Here two factions of Eternals are formed, one faction headed by Uranos. He thinks that he should rule humanity, whose responsibility was given to him by the Celestials. Kronos, who leads the other faction on the other hand, thinks the opposite. He is in favor of protecting and well being of humanity. In such a situation it is natural to have a confrontation. Meanwhile, the civil war breaks out, and Kronos wins. The defeated Uranos have to leave the Earth and settle their civilization on the planet Titan.
Zuras and A’lars
However, Kronos was the First Eternal and he has two sons Zuras and A’Lars from his wife Diana.
Time passed, meanwhile Kronos perished in an unfortunate cosmic energy accident. Meanwhile, Kronos’s sons Zuras and A’Lars formed Uni-Mind to choosing the new leader of the Eternals. Zuras is elected the new representative of the Eternals and A’Lars leaves Earth to avoid another civil war and he went to Titan. Where A’Lars knows that Titan has been completely wiped out, except for one female Sui-San. A’Lars falls in love with Sui-San and over time they reside on the planet Titan.
On the other hand, Zuras built three new Eternal cities, Olympia ( located in the mountains of Greece), Polaria ( Siberia) and Oceana ( Pacific Ocean ) during his reign. About 18000 years ago the Celestials returned to the earth once more, here the Deviants attacked them and the Celestials retaliated. As a result Mu and Atlantis were drowned and wreaked havoc around the world. Once again the Eternals protected humans and saved many men.
