The Eternals is a team consisting of 10 members who have come to stop the deviants that are slowly devouring humans. Each member of the group has their personality and an interesting set of powers. Among them, Ikaris is the most powerful with the ability to shoot lasers with his eyes and also fly.

Thena and Gilgamesh are also pretty strong and provide massive support to the group. Overall, Eternals are studded with diverse powers and it is evident in their display.

Who Was Commanding Eternals?

Eternals were indirectly following the orders of Arishem. She used to communicate her messages to Ajax who in return would deliver them to Eternals. However, after Ajax died, there was no medium for communication. Later on, Sersi became the mode and started delivering the messages through Arishem.

What Are Their Origins?

Eternals don’t know about the origins of their existence until they find it through Arishem. Turns out, they were created to visit planets and execute missions. After the mission is cleared, their memories were erased. During their latest outing, this fact pinched them and they didn’t take it mentally well.

In the final moments, Eternals are split into groups as Ikaris reveals that he was the one who killed Ajak because she no longer wanted to follow Amerish’s commands. The Group of course is torn apart but they realize that they must stop Tiamut.

Ikaris turns against other Eternals and starts hurting them. However, when it comes to killing Sersi, he couldn’t do it and simply leaves. Sersi then uses Druig’s powers to put Celestial being into sleep, thus saving humanity.

Ikaris realizes the mistake he made and leaves the Earth. We last see him heading into Sun, however, it’s not revealed whether he died or not. As for other Eternals, some remain on Earth while some go to the atmosphere to inform other Eternals about the truth of their existence.
