Get to Know the Eternals: Marvel’s Newest Heroes

Brace yourselves…there are ten new Marvel heroes, and villains, and we cannot wait to introduce them all to you! Eternals is the new Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, directed by none other than Academy Award-winning Chloe Zhao.

The Eternals are not humans, yet they are not gods. However, humans often mistake them for gods which is not to their liking. They all have their unique powers, but they are also all skilled warriors with incredible strength, speed, and agility. One thing you should know about the Eternals is that they are mostly immortal, and their bodies, even if destroyed, can live on in other ways. They were sent to Earth, to live amongst humans, by the Celestials to act as spectators to human conflict unless Deviants are involved. The Eternals are obedient, until at one point, they start to question their mission and how they were created.

The Eternals have their similarities with other Marvel characters which have also made a huge bang with their comics and movies. The Avengers are one such group of Marvel superheroes. Spider-Man, Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor, to mention only a few, have been re-adapted into various industries including getting their own solo movies, their characters being turned into anime, their own video games, and even online casino games such as The Power of Thor Megaways by Pragmatic Play that can be found in the top online gambling sites in Canada.

Sit back, relax – it’s time to introduce The Eternals!
