Synopsis for "The Celestials!"Edit

Eternals Vol 1 2 001
A massive ship from outer space hovers above the so-called "City of the Space Gods". Kro openly challenges the power of these beings and quickly finds himself fleeing from a blast of cosmic energy projected by the ship. The structure begins to quake from the blast and the walls start collapsing around Ikaris, Margo and Doctor Damian. Ikaris races to a chamber called the Resurrection Crypt and awakens one of the Eternals - Ajak, he who is also known as Tecumotzin. Ajak and his followers quickly prepare the coming of their gods - the Celestials. He activates a ceremonial pylon to receive the first of these galactic beings. A giant alien descends from the space ship and comes to rest on the pylon. This is Arishem, leader of the Fourth Host of the Celestials.
