ETERNALS / THANOS FAMILY TREE

Marvel's Eternals are far and away one of the most puzzling of its franchises. Fraught with retcon upon retcon, at its core stands quite a large family of multiple generations and just as many feuds. From Thanos to Eros, Ikaris to Druig, Nebula to just about everyone, the central Eternals family has mythos that is as compelling as it is confounding. In this article focusing on its central family line, UXN/MAN does its best to unpack this history while addressing the host of contradictions throughout. Read here about the Eternals/Thanos Family Tree.

Spotlight On... SOLARR

The murderous master of the solar flame, this mutant spent years as an assassin distant from the X-Men's world. His criminal escapades brought him into contact with the Avengers, Defenders, and Alpha Flight, as well as serving as a frequent prisoner at Project: PEGASUS before his death in an uprising. Although he was welcomed on Krakoa under the blanket amnesty, the Three Laws were a concern for a man who only wanted to burn and occupied a living island. Solarr instead accepted the Goblin Queen's offer of sanctuary at the Limbo embassy, where his taste for fire was more acceptable.

Hero Team entry... AVENGERS (Earth-8545)

Earth-8545 also known as the “Legacy planet” was introduced in Exiles (1st series) #20 in 2003. Unlike many other worlds visited by the Exiles, this reality was distinct in that readers were brought back to it on more than one occasion. Seemingly merging two of the X-Men's most important  storylines from 1990s (the Legacy virus and the Phalanx Covenant) the Legacy planet featured Earth's Mightiest Heroes attempting to save their fraught planet from consummation by horde of techno-organic, zombie-like creatures called the Vi-Locks with aid from the reality hopping Exiles. The world also housed an alternate version of Mary Jane Watson who would be the principal love interest of Exiles mainstay Mariko Yashida (Sunfire). The doomed but tender romance between Mary Jane and Mariko was one the few prominent LGBTQ love stories in mainstream comics of the early ‘00s.

Spotlight On... the STRANGER

One of the X-Men's earliest and most unprecedented foes, the Stranger is an alien being of indescribable power. A scientist by nature, the Stranger observed the raw potential of the human race and found the implications disturbing. Though he stands among the greatest cosmic forces of the universe, the Stranger fears humanity and returns to Earth time and again in an effort to better understand their nature...or simply destroy them. The Stranger is a deliberate enigma, having lied and concealed his origins on far too many occasions to trust any particular story as true. In the end, he remains to everyone (and perhaps even himself)...a stranger.

Team Entry - the 50-STATE INITIATIVE

Under the Superhuman Registration Act, the Initiative was a movement to address the fact that the majority of super-heroes congregated in Manhattan. Iron Man and S.H.I.E.L.D. began a program to train and deploy super-teams for all 50 states of the union. They were unsuccessful in fully staffing the Initiative before the Skrull invasion brought them down from the inside. Still, a number of these teams arose based on past super-teams, and a few survived to continue patrolling new states once the Act was dismantled.

Villain Team entry... VAMPIRE AVENGERS (Earth-3931)

Happy Halloween! The Exiles encountered many versions of the Avengers but this particular version was one of the most sinister. Captain America (having been turned into a vampire by Baron Blood) went on to infect his teammates in the Avengers. The group became a large enough threat to their entire world that the reality hopping Exiles were dispatched to stop them from destroying San Francisco and derailing their entire reality.
