Sersi has existed for many years, although she seems to be considered one of the younger Eternals. It is known that she encountered the Greek hero Odysseus and temporarily turned his crew into pigs, in which she became famous in Greek mythology as Circe. She was present during Nero's burning of Rome and was assisted by Makkari. She also assisted Merlin during the days of King Arthur Pendragon.
In modern times, Sersi joined the Avengers after becoming interested in Captain America (Steve Rogers). She continued to flirt with him much to his embarrassment. Eventually, through the years she met and fell in love with Black Knight (Dane Whitman) and formed a Gann Josin; a mental bond with him as her soulmate.
Proctor's manipulations nearly drove Sersi mad as her teammates wondered if she really had become unstable. She eventually killed Proctor with his own Ebony Blade. Fearing that she would go mad, she opted to exile herself, with Whitman accompanying her. They ended up in the Ultraverse.
Upon returning to the correct time Sersi and Whitman have had little contact. She has assisted the Avengers on occasion. She stayed on Earth rather than leave as part of the Uni-Mind. When the other remaining Eternals felt they needed to become more involved in the world of humans, she agreed. They portrayed themselves as an everyday superhero team, with Sersi adopting the name of Mesmer.
When recently encountered by other Eternals, Sersi had no recollection of her past activities on Earth and had been spending her time in New York as a party planner. Sersi was later hired by Druig, currently deputy Prime Minister of Vorozheika, to publicize this small former Soviet republic by organizing a party at the Vorozheikan embassy. After the party was attacked by terrorists and prevented by Mark Curry and Iron Man, Stark asked Sersi of about registering, as she was a former Avenger. But, she was confused as to what he was talking about, and Iron Man himself was later dumbfounded as he discovered that there were no files based on Sersi in the Avengers database.
Eventually, Sersi remembered her memories as she and the other Eternals discovered that Sprite was responsible for their memory loss. After the awakening of the Dreaming Celestial, Sersi decided to resume her normal life, wishing to be neither an Eternal, nor lead the life as an Avenger that was offered to her by Tony Stark.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Sersi is one of the most powerful Earth Eternals. As an Eternal she possesses:
Super Strength: Sersi can bench/press at least 20 tons, however she can increase this though her levitation and telekinetic abilities.
Nervous System Control: She can control her nervous system deadening herself to pain, and control certain body functions to work more efficiently than usual.
Superhuman Stamina: Sersi has incredible stamina.
Regenerative Healing Factor: She can heal from nearly all wounds.
Telepathy: Sersi can psychically communicate, read minds, project her thoughts into other people, and is skilled in the use of illusions. Her illusions affect all five senses and are virtually indistinguishable from the 'real thing'.

Flight: Sersi can fly at high speeds through telekinesis.
Cosmic Energy Projection: Sersi is able to project blasts of cosmic energy from her hands or eyes.
Teleportation: She can teleport herself and others across vast distances although doing so is unpleasant for Eternals.
Matter Transmutaion: Sersi is able to transmute nearly any item or being into almost whatever she wishes (she first used this ability to turn a man into a pig). She is 'adept level 5', the highest level an Eternal can reach in such categories.
