There have been obviously some belonging to the race who ascribed to extra violent and villainous ideals, like Ego, however there was once little proof as to the overriding philosophy or intentions of the Celestials as a complete. This is, till the discharge of “Eternals” in 2021.

Necessarily, the race’s purpose of defending existence on Earth, and different planets, was once merely within the pastime of birthing new Celestials — an act necessitating the destruction of planets. Thankfully, the Eternals have been ready to save Earth from that horrible destiny; now, with their religion within the beings who created torn asunder, it’ll be attention-grabbing to see the place this tale is going subsequent.
