Who Is Eson The Searcher?

Eson is a giant Celestial being that once held one of the six infinity stones, specifically the power stone. As many fans will know, the infinity stones can only be wielded by those with immense power.

With Eson being a Celestial, he was strong enough to use the power stone and leveled out the surface of an entire planet, vaporizing every living thing in his path.

Similar to Thanos, Eson is ruthless with little regard for anybody who gets in his way. His powers come from his Celestial race, meaning he is able to manipulate and create matter on a molecule level. Plus, Eson is so large and physically strong, making him a force to be reckoned with.

Although Eson is similar to Thanos in terms of personality attributes, it must be noted that Eson is far stronger than any other being featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, even Thanos. He is one of the strongest villains in the entire universe.

As mentioned previously, Eson made his cinematic debut very briefly in Guardians of The Galaxy as part of a flashback.

Although it seems that Eson does appear in the final trailer for Marvel’s Eternals, that isn’t actually him.

The figure that briefly appears and looks a lot like Eson is actually the leader of the Celestial race, Arishem. For more details on Arishem and how he differs from Eson, check out the link below.
