If you are wondering who the Eternals are, you are not alone. You are not as well known as some of the other characters introduced in the first three phases of the MCU. The Eternals, created by the legendary Jack Kirby, debuted in Marvel Comics in 1976. Their story is full of mythology as they were created by the superior celestial, immensely powerful, and extremely ancient beings through genetic experiments with the earliest forms of humanity. These experiments, which led to the possibility of superpowered mutation in humans, resulted in two races: the Eternals and their most common enemies, the deviants.
