Zuras
Real Name:
Search for 'Zuras' on Amazon


Powers:
Zuras possessed the ability to manipulate cosmic energy to augment his life force granting him great longevity and regenerative abilities, the projection of concussive force, heat and electrical energy up to a maximum range of 300 feet. He could also use cosmic energy to create force shields around himself, to levitate himself and/or others, and to psionically manipulate molecules so as to transform an object's shape. During his lifetime, Zuras was the only Eternal known capable of initiating the creation of the Uni-Mind (the collective life-form resulting from the physical and mental merging of a significant number of Eternals) by himself.

Telepathy, illusion-casting, limited teleportation

Bio:
Zuras is the son of the Eternals Kronos and Daina, and brother of A'Lars (Mentor). With his wife Cybele, he has a daughter Thena.

Zuras was the first Eternal to form a Uni-Mind, and was chosen by the Eternals to lead them following Kronos' death. He was mistaken for the Greek god Zeus many times in the past, and ultimately forged a pact with Zeus to keep their people at peace. When Kro spread chaos in the 1940s, Zuras sent Makkari to oppose him. He also forced the Forgotten One into exile, stripped him of his name, and forbade the Eternals from communicating with him. Zuras appears to have been well-traveled, since his quarters in Olympia were decorated with a jukebox, two six-shooters and battle-axes.

Zuras authorized Thena to resume her battles against the Deviants, and ordered her to battle against Zakka in New York. He also aided Mr. Bradford, a government agent, in studying the Celestials. Zuras allied himself with Odin in his assault on the 4th Host of Celestials, and formed the Uni-Mind for battle. However, the Uni-Mind was blown apart by the Celestials, and the backlash killed Zuras. Even then, Zuras' spirit continued to exist within his body, until his body was finally destroyed by freeing Thena from a Brain-Mine. Zuras' spirit still seems to exist, as it has appeared at times within Olympia, such as when Ikaris challenged Thena for the title of Prime Eternal.

Sprite stated that he used the machineries of Olympia to partially "reactivate" Zuras—and then deceived Zuras into visiting the tomb of the Dreaming Celestial, forming a Uni-Mind there. This provided Sprite with the power he needed to rewrite some aspects of reality, stripping the other Eternals of their powers and memories. Sprite also stated that he considered Zuras to be the most powerful of the Eternals, but this is highly debatable given that Ikaris, Sersi, Makkari, and Gilgamesh have displayed, and been officially listed with, far greater amounts of raw power.[original research?]

In the "rewritten" world, Zuras was made into an alcoholic homeless man, with mental problems. He was, however, restored by Ajak. Ultimately, Zuras found Sprite after the events were resolved, and killed him by snapping Sprite's neck.
