Eon (Marvel)
Real Name:
Search for 'Eon (Marvel)' on Amazon

He possessed the ability to shift into this universe whenever he so chose, and he finally shifted the access aperture into his dimension so that it was located behind the bookshelf in Wendell Vaughn's office in Four Freedom's Plaza. Eon also possessed the ability to grant "cosmic awareness" and other unspecified powers to his champions. He could also utilize cosmic energy to fire blasts and to fly.

Eon was a sentient quasi-physical entity who was almost as old as the universe itself. Eon was among the first sentient entities formed in the wake of the Big Bang and had existed for eight billion years. Eon claimed to be the offspring of Eternity (the entity that embodies all life in the universe) the Celestial Axis (which is the pattern of organic energy threading itself through the known universe), and Infinity (who represents the whole of time).

Eon considered himself to be a "cosmic custodian" that monitored life throughout the universe. Beings who had an abundance of power particularly attracted Eon' attention. Eon is believed to be responsible for certain phenomena on Earth, which lies along the Celestial Axis. Eon also apparently had something to do with certain other dimensions in which beings of godlike power dwell. (In many of these dimensions the Celestial Axis manifested itself as a physical object. In Asgard the Celestial Axis manifested as Yggdrasil the World Tree). Eon's principal function was to nurture the evolution of the sentient life forms of the universe and to maintain conditions conducive to life within the universe.

Eon regarded Earth and its human denizens as having particular importance to the history of the universe. Eon believed that due to the constant emergence of superbeings on Earth that humans were going to become a "superhuman" race which would lead the universe into a golden age.

One of Eon's primary functions was to appoint a "Protector of the Universe" who's job it was to ensure that conditions in the universe remained conducive to life in the universe. Since almost the beginning of the present universe, Eon had anticipated major threats to life in the universe and had chosen his champions to defend the universe against these threats. It is unknown how frequently Eon appointed his protectors, but he had appointed thousands of them throughout history some of whom achieved their destinies and some of whom failed. One of his protectors was a member of the Elan alien race. All but one of these champions wore devices called the Quantum Bands that Eon created that enable them to manipulate energy at will. Eon has also bestowed other powers upon the champions he has chosen. The first champion he appointed was Glakandar, whom he drafted over five billion years ago.

In recent recorded history Eon selected Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell) of the Kree as his protector of the universe. Mar-Vell who had distinguished himself both in the Kree military and as a defender of Earth was appointed protector to combat the menace of Thanos, one of the Eternals of Titan who sought to destroy the universe. Mar-Vell led several of Earth's champions against Thanos who was ultimately defeated by them. Eon granted Mar-Vell "Cosmic Awareness" to aid him in his crusade against Thanos. Mar-Vell was one of the Protectors of the Universe who did not wear the Quantum Bands, which had then fallen into the possession of the costumed crusader known as Marvel Boy.

Following Mar-Vell's death from cancer, Eon selected Wendell Elvis Vaughn as the next Protector of the Universe. Quasar had already acquired the Quantum Bands following Marvel Boy's death. Eon told Quasar that he was to defend Earth from an unidentified menace (later revealed to be Maelstrom) who originated from Earth and was a threat to both of them. Before Maelstrom manifested his threat to the cosmos, Thanos acquired the six Infinity Gems and bonded them together to form the Infinity Gauntlet. Using the power of the gauntlet Thanos killed half of the population in the universe with merely a thought. Eon was one of the cosmic beings who challenged him, and was ultimately defeated by him. After the Infinity Gauntlet incident, Maelstrom eventually gained the power of the Anomaly which enabled him to slay Eon. After Quasar defeated Maelstrom with the help of Infinity, he laid Eon's body to rest. Many cosmic beings were present at Eon's funeral including multiple Watchers, members of the Elan race, multiple Celestials, Galactus, and a host of others. As his last effort on this plane of existence Eon birthed Epoch who was protected by Quasar.

Epoch, Eon's daughter, has been known to assume the appearance of her father, Eon (such as during the Infinity Gauntlet). Appearances of "Eon", unless specifically identified as Eon, after Quasar (1989) #27 should be attributed to Epoch.
