Eternus' true name, age, and origin are unknown. He is one of the only "true Immortals" in the universe and is completely immune to all forms of mental/physical injury and aging. He claims to have aided in the uniting Ancient Egypt (making him over 5000 years old). He then proceeded to fight in the Trojan War under the alias "Diomedes". For the next 2000 years he went exploring in search for knowledge and wisdom, during which time he decided to settle on the name "Eternus". During the crusades he fought alongside Saladin, both being each others mentor/student. During the Fourth Crusade however, Eternus was given a nigh-indestructable, mystically enhanced sword as a bribe from an unknown deity, in return, would not fight in that crusade. During WWII, he worked alongside the Russian government as an intelligencer and espionage agent. Recently, realizing that he must adapt to the time period, he has created his own suit made of non-magnetic self-repairing Tungsten carbide in the form of microscopic links, wields his nigh invulnerable sword, and acts as a "superhero" under the name: Eternus.
Being Immortal, Eternus is completely immune to all types of mental and physical trauma. His cells cannot be altered or manipulated in any way by any outside sources. Because of this, his body does not undergo changes with age and cannot change size, shape, is unaffected by all forms of toxicity, cannot phase through objects and objects cannot phase through it. He can also not be teleported (as his molecule cannot be dispersed), unless by way of portals. He can use all of his muscles, at full strength, for an unlimited amount of time (He produces no fatigue toxins and never tires). He also has an unlimited eidetic memory.
