Icarus to Juniper


How high is the reach of a father/
as high as the brilliant sun?
If a child could touch the face/
of such a beloved one?
If my love had wings of fire/
I would do what I have done

-Excerpt from Khoryphos' song composed inn Icarus' memory

Son of Ikaris and a human female. Phastos and Makkari designed a flight harness for Icarus so that he could soar like his father, but when Ikaris disappeared for a time in his battles with the Deviants, Icarus flew out looking for him. He flew too high, and lost oxygen, passing out. When the harness ran out of power, he fell to the earth and was killed. It was then that Ikaris adopted his current name, in memory of his son. -Eternals (v.2)#5, New Eternals#1

Ikaris A Polar Eternal, son of Virako and Tulayn, father of Icarus. Ikaris is a 2nd-Level adept at matter control, and a 4th-Level adept at Cosmic Energy. Ikaris' mother died when he was only 300 years old, and his father, when he was 1010, which resulted in his uncle Valkin adopting him. It is not known what Ikaris' birth-name was; he adopted the name "Ikaris" after his son Icarus was killed. During the 2nd Host, after the Great Flood, Ikaris led the surviving humans to safety, who mistook him for a bird. At some point, several centuries ago, Ikaris and Thena fought Apocalypse as En Sabah Nur, and believed that he died. Until recent events, Ikaris and Aurelle had not seen each other for 200 years. In 1823, at the request of Zuras, Ikaris first assumed the identity of "Ike Harris", and prepared himself for the coming of the 4th Host. He also made contact with the Inhumans during this period, and helped them relocate their city of Attilan to the Himalayas, and aided his "cousin" Pixie in helping the time-displaced super-hero the Yankee Clipper find a home.

When the time for the 4th Host arrived, as Ike Harris, he led Dr. Daniel Damian and his daughter Margo to the City of the Space Gods, where he released Ajak to greet the coming Host. The return of the Celestials soon resulted in the Deviants attacking humanity again, and Ikaris led many battles against them, including an attack on New Lemuria, where he met Thor. Ikaris and Thena have long had a strong dislike for each other, and found themselves coming to conflict when she was appointed Prime Eternal. Questioning her worth as Prime Eternal, Ikaris faced her in the Hall of Eternal Judgement and defeated her, becoming the new Prime Eternal. Ikaris retains the title of Prime Eternal today, and under the alias of "Sovereign" has introduced the Eternals to the world as a team of super-heroes called the "New Breed", and has had to deal with the return of his father Virako to life. -Eternals (v.1)#1-4, 6, 8-12, 14-19, Thor#284-289, 291-292, 301, What If (v.1)#29, Contest of Champions#1, Iron Man Annual#6, Iron Man#179, Avengers#246-248, Eternals (v.2)#1-12, Silver Surfer Annual#1, Amazing Spider-Man Annual#23, Avengers#308, 310, Eternals: The Herod Factor, Quasar#29, Avengers#361, Quasar#54-58, Starblast#1-4, Fantastic Four Unlimited#10, Heroes For Hire #5, Inhumans (v.3)#1, New Eternals#1, X-Force#97, Marvel: The Lost Generation#1, X-Men: The Hidden Years#21.

Interloper Polar Eternal who normally lives in seclusion in a cabin in Siberia. The only fellow Eternal that the Interloper has truly befriended is the Forgotten One, who has also lived a life consisting mainly of solitude. Over the centuries, the Interloper has devoted himself to battling the Dragon of the Moon, a demonic entity from Titan. His first known battle with the creature occured on Titan, alongside the Eternals there, and he also battled it in Camelot alongside King Arthur and his knights of the Round Table. At the end of this battle, the Interloper exiled the Dragon to outer space, and believed the threat to be over. At some point, he was sought out by Roger Loomis, the assassin called Manslaughter, and, impressed by his psychic potential, which allowed him to evade the Interloper's own powers, taught him how to further develop his psychic powers. Manslaughter and the Interloper later fought the Dragon of the Moon alongside the Defenders, when the Dragon was revealed to have corrupted Moondragon's soul, turning her into it's new host. Though the Interloper appeared to die in this battle, transferring his life energies with the other Defenders, he was later resurrected by possessing the body of student Will Fanshaw, and transforming it into a replica of his own form. -Defenders#147, 149, 151-152, Strange Tales (v.2)#5-7, Dr. Strange (v.3)#3-4

Following the death of Thanos, ISAAC was overcome by a computer virus Thanos had left on Titan, and conquered the planet, creating its agents Elysius, Lord Gaea, Chaos, Stellarax and Tartarus to aid him. Ultimately, Captain Mar-Vell and Drax defeated ISAAC and its minions. During that time, ISAAC used a powerful android body, but has since abandoned it. Later, when the Avengers' member the Vision was shut down in battle, Starfox linked the Vision to ISAAC in order to aid him in repair. But while in contact with ISAAC, the Vision became convinced that to establish peace on the earth, he should develop a system similiar to that of ISAAC's on Titan, and ISAAC aided him in developing this plan, but ultimately, the Vision abandoned his idea. -Iron Man#55, Captain Marvel#27, 32-33, 58-62, Marvel Spotlight (v.2)#1- 3, Avengers#230, 238, 243, 249, 253, Solo Avengers#16, 18, Infinity Gauntlet#1-2, Silver Surfer#52, Quasar#59, Cosmic Powers#4 Ka-Zar (v.4)#10, Thunderbolts#46-47
