: : Hi everyone... this is probably such a
: question, but hey that's me. I have been
: reading back Eternal's issues (including the
: 19 issue Kirby run, except the Annual, and
: the Thor run beginning with #282 and ending
: with #301). Having been confused from the
: outset how Marvel reconciled the whole
: Olympus (Zeus faction)versus Olympia (Zuras
: faction) I found some answers. Alas, not my
: comic book reading, but the various websites
: I stumbled upon refer to the Zeus gods
: agreeing to let the Eternals (those from
: Olympia) represent them on Earth, and a pact
: being sealed by the symbolic changing of
: Azura (Zuras' daughter) to Thena, in homage
: to Athena (Zeus' daughter). Then I read Zeus
: later got a case of god jealousy and engaged
: in a brief war with his Eternal
: counterparts, lasting peace being later
: made. What a preamble... ok my question. Did
: I miss it (within the books I indicated I
: read... I ravenously crammed them all in
: under week) or can anyone tell me in which
: Marvel issues these events took place...
: specifically the Azura to Thena name change
: and the the brief Olympus vs. Olympia war. I
: would be very grateful for some answers...
: and all the best to every Eternal's fan out
: there. Someday I'll catch up!
: Not a novice question at all, actually,
: because the story in question hasn't been
: told; the only references to the pact
: between Olympia and Olympus are in the
: OHOTMU entries, it's never been dramatized.
Thanks hugely for the response... maybe some of this back story will be addressed in the upcoming Gaiman/Romita series.
