Eternals: Celestia #1 (by Kieron Gillen, Kei Zama, John Livesay, Matthew Wilson, and VC’s Clayton Cowles) takes us on a trip down memory lane. While revisiting a past battle in the comic, it is revealed that the Eternals have a crippling weakness which is similar to Superman from DC Comics.

While narrating the fight between Ajak and the Avengers of 1,000,000 B.C.E., their weakness is hinted at in a throwaway comment. The narration listed true magic as the Eternals’ “weakest spot” when the Eternals went against the first Sorcerer Supreme. Now, this comment reveals that the Eternals, despite having so many capabilities, actually have a weakness that can be exploited by many Marvel characters.

The reason why this weakness is similar to Superman is that he too gets his powers naturally. Despite any and everything, he’s a mortal being. Now, when the “natural” aspect of his life is tampered with, he gets weak. The same principle must apply to the Eternals as well, moreover, considering their existence as well.

First, the Eternals are a being of science, which is being followed in the MCU as well. They are created by the Celestials and their entire cycle of birth and rebirth is ensured by them. Another reason why they are vulnerable to magic is that no Eternal delved well into this area to understand it enough. Now, the real question is, would we ever see the Eternals get overpowered by Doctor Strange? Well, who knows!
