- Eyung was a ringed planet in the Andromeda galaxy.
(Quasar I#16 (fb)) - Apparently at some point the Celestials visited the world (see comments) that
would become known as Eyung, experimenting on its natives and
diverging three races, a baseline normal, Deviants, and Eternals.
The Eternals apparently became the dominent race (see comments).
(Fantastic Four I#115 (fb) / Quasar I#16 (fb))
- Eyung developed into "a place of primitive savagery
--rampant, unchecked-- yet existing side by side with science and
technology to stun the senses!"
Developing a massive space fleet, Eyungians left Eyung to assault other worlds.
When not battling other worlds, Eyungians battled each other and Eyung's various creatures in the Games.
(Fantastic Four I#115 (fb)) -
Vowing retribution after the Eyungians destroyed Gigantus, the Gigantans launched a vast armada that soon
attacked Eyung. The Gigantans also
struck with Reaction Bombs.
Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Archie Goodwin, John Buscema, and Joe Sinnott.
Read the Grom/Over-Mind profile for the history of the Eternals
who lived on in Over-Mind's form.
Originally, the planet was not identified, and it was just shown as the world of the "Eternals."
In the original Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Deluxe Edition#8: Overmind entry, it was called Eternus.
The world's name was later retconned to Eyung in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Master Edition: Overmind entry.
It was confirmed as Eyung in Quasar I#14-16.
