The Superhero folk tale drops on 5th November 2021.
Who are Marvel Eternals? Are they superhuman or aliens? What powers do they wield? Will they be standing against mankind? Did they come after events of Endgame or before? As a diehard fan of the world spun by Marvel Cinematic Universe are you looking for answers to these questions? Let us help you decode this bit by bit.
In the year 1976, Jack Kirby’s comics introduce the world with three different sets of groups that were created by celestial Gods. Namely, Devitants (a notorious class that is known to wreak havoc time after time, for them war is a constant state), Humans, and Eternals (immortal aliens who have secretly been living on Earth for 35,000 years).

Blame the Endgame
Centuries ago, hundreds of Eternals protected the Earth from these warmongers. Without Eternals, as the comics present, the world would have been swallowed into the doom by Deviants. And there would not be any way to reverse the damage. The official synopsis from Marvel Studio suggests that events of Endgame have pushed this new team of superheroes out of their cryosleep. And now, they unite with humankind to fight against the less evolved evils.
Who is who?
President of Marvel Studio Kevin Feige at 2019 San Diego Comic-Con introduced this new lot of Superheroes. The ones who are all fashioned up to save the world yet again.

Salma Hayek as gender-swapped Ajak
Kirby introduces Ajak as male in the iterations of “The Eternals”, but the movie will feature Ajak as female. Like Ikaris, Ajak can fly and teleport. More or less, all the Eternals have identical superpowers.
