The film The Eternal present to Thena and should not be confused with Athena, two different characters of the Marvel Universe.
What more impact in the film The Eternal it will be Thenathe heroine who gives life to the actress Angelina Jolie. But, in the Marvel Universe there is also Athenathat we have come to face between them.
The Eternal explain how some beings very old called the Celestials experimented on the Earth and created The Eternal and Deviant. Two races that will begin a conflict that lasted thousands of years. But now their minds are dormant in human bodies. The events of Avengers: Endgame the wake up and begin again the war.
Among The Timeless highlights Ikaris (Richard Madden), Ajak (Salma Hayek), Sersi (Gemma Chan), Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani), Gilgamesh (Dong-seok Ma), Druig (Barry Keoghan), Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry), Makkari (Lauren Ridloff), Sprite (Lia McHugh) and Thena (Angelina Jolie). These beings were so powerful and long-lived (hence the word “eternal”) they were confused with Gods, something similar to what happened with the nordic civilization and the Asgardianos.
Thena it was considered that there was Athena the Greek goddess of war, civilization, wisdom, strategy in combat, of science, of justice and of the ability. But in the Marvel Universe there is also Athena. So don’t confuse them.
Differences between these two characters.
Athena it was adapted from Greek mythology by the writer Stan Lee and the artist Jack Kirbyfor the comic The Mighty Thor # 164 (1969). She’s part of the “olympics,” a race of beings extradimensionales that are ruled by Zeus. Possesses all the skills of his peers, such as super strength, speed, and fly. In addition to a super intelligence that makes him possessed of a lot of important knowledge. Throughout the history of the Marvel Universe has intervened in the lives of humans and has fought alongside the Avengers.
While Thenaas we have already mentioned before, form part of The Eternal. That arose from the result of the experiments of the Celestials. Also created by Jack Kirby in 1976, he was born in the city of Olympia and his name was Azura. His father Zuras had changed her name to Thena to like Athena (Greek name of Minerva). Because that would be his representative on Earth. What causes the confusion often. Supposedly the city of Athens was built for her and not for the Goddess.
Probably in the UCM (Movie Universe of Marvel) this is not what we will see, because it could confuse too to the spectators. So the explanation of its origin in The Eternal will be much simpler than in the comics of the Marvel Universe.
Guess the movie: Volume 4
