Through a strange set of events, man comes to learn that though the old
Greek legends may have been distorted by time, they were not entirely
untrue. The truth is that man is not alone in the evolutionary chain, but is
merely the middle ground in an experiment by a race known as the Celestials.
The highest form of life is the Eternals—immortal beings whose names have
become the stuff of legends. Led by Zuras (Zeus), their number includes
Ikaris (Icarus), Sersi (Circe), Ajak (Ajax), and others.
