- -- Thena src
Originally born under the name Azura, but her father Zuras had her name changed to resemble that of Zeus' daughter Athena to seal the treaty between their two peoples. Due to this, she has often been mistaken for Athena. The city of Athens was apparently built for her, not the goddess, although Thena later allowed it to be conquered by the Spartans in 404 B.C.
Encountered Kro in Babylon 2,500 years ago. He had a chance to slay her, but did not; as the years passed, the two of them grew closer together. Thena and Kro made love during the Vietnam War, resulting in Thena becoming pregnant with twins. She placed them inside of Ms. Ritter, an infertile woman, who raised them as her own twin children, Donald and Deborah.
When Kro led his armies in an attack on New York, Thena opposed him. After Kro called a truce, he showed her Ransak the Reject, a genetically stable Deviant. Thena was convinced by the Deviant Karkas to grant both of them sanctuary. After Zuras' death & the subsequent departure of most of Earth's Eternals, Thena became Prime Eternal, but she was traumatized by her father's death & was being subtly influenced by a Brain-Mine Kro had placed upon her. She turned against Ikaris to help save Kro's life, but later relinquished her title to Ikaris. When she learned of the Brain-Mine, she was furious with Kro, but has since forgiven him.
Thena is married to Thomas Eliot, with a son Joey, and is a researcher at Stark Enterprises. Like Sersi and Makkari, she was affected by Sprite's reality warping to have no memory of her past as an Eternal.
Recently, after being released from a hostage situation by Iron Man, she gained back her costume and powers. Following the awakening of the Dreaming Celestial, Thena had a heated argument with Zuras over keeping her son, as he is born a mortal, which the outcome comes in favor for her as she swears that she will continue to love and parent Joey until his death at old age.
