NEVER DIE, NEVER WIN in Eternals #1
Born in times long forgotten by the creative mind of Jack Kirby, the immortal beings discover they are “not what they’ve been told” in the upcoming series by Kieron Gillen and Esad Ribić. Although it’s unclear from the trailer what that means, the Eternals are commonly believed to be god-like and immortal beings created by the Celestials to protect humanity from age-old enemies, the Deviants.
Although the villainous group, the Deviants, have served as the main antagonists for the Eternals throughout their comic history, the dynamic between the two groups is complicated. In the Marvel Universe, in fact, two of the biggest of the bad are half-Eternal/half-Deviant – Maelstrom and Thanos!
Winds of Change: Meet Ikaris
Ikaris returns in the official announcement of Eternals #1 to notify readers of the winds of change! Ikaris – the most powerful member of the Eternals – can create unique energy required to reshape other beings into the Uni-Mind, a psychic entity made of light, mind, and pure energy that has no race or gender.
Eternals #1 Trailer
What’s the point of an eternal battle? For millions of years, one hundred Eternals have roamed the Earth, secret protectors of humanity. Without them, we’d be smears between the teeth of the demon-like Deviants. Their war has waged for all time, echoing in our myths and nightmares. But today, Eternals face something new: change. Can they – or anyone on Earth – survive their discovery?
In the latest chapter in the Eternals epic, the one mind seemingly returns. But, what does that mean for Ikaris and the other Eternals? Look at the preview pages to see where the latest chapter begins:
