My sworn enemies – the Mighty Crusaders!
It’s not entirely clear if Eternos is the same being as Eterno. They share similar fashion sense but it’s possible they are simply two different villains that both have ties to ancient Atlantis and whose names are simply one letter removed from each other.
Eterno the Tyrant was the ruler of Atlantis. When a missile blast sent shock-waves to the ocean floor, Eterno woke up from his self-induced five-million year sleep. When he found out that it was the Mighty Crusaders who were behind the explosion, he vowed to become their arch-foe. To this end, he battled the heroes on multiple occasions, most notably when he teamed up with the Brain Emperor to raise Atlantis back to the surface.
Eternos (with the ‘s’) was awakened from a self-induced five-million year sleep by the Druid, who conducted a blood ritual to restore Eternos to consciousness. Eternos was disturbed to see that humanity now ruled over the world and that the Atlantean genes had become corrupted in his absence. He swore to restore the natural order of things.
It’s really up to you if you want them to be the same person or not. Give the legacy nature of the current Crusaders, perhaps Eternos is the younger sibling of Eterno? Or maybe even one is the son of the other? Kevin Moorhead has even suggested that perhaps Eternos is an Atlantean god that inspired Eterno to take a similar name.
For the sake of this writeup, I’m going to assume that Eternos has access to all the same powers and weaponry as Eterno but with the enhanced physical attributes of Eternos.
