**Warning – Major spoilers ahead**
Marvel’s Eternals recently had its premiere and news of a certain character appearing in the post-credits scene has already leaked into the mainstream, and up ahead, we discuss the powers of Eros within the Marvel universe.
Academy-Award-winning director, Chloé Zhao, leads a stellar cast in Marvel’s post-Avengers behemoth, starring Richard Madden, Salma Hayek, Angelina Jolie, Kit Harington, Gemma Chan, and many more talented actors.
Eternals post-credit scene
Normally, the integrity of leaks is a little difficult to confirm, however, there has been little to no attempt to keep this post-credit scene in the bag.
Multiple reports from trusted sources are discussing the appearance of Eros, Thanos’ brother, in the end-credits scene of Eternals, played by Harry Styles.
This rumor surfaced a few weeks ago before the premiere, but now it has been confirmed, and we’re here to explore the character ahead of time.
Who is Eros?
Eros is the youngest son of the Eternals, A’Lars and Sui-San, in Marvel canon and often goes by the alias Starfox.
Eros is also the brother of the Mad Titan, Thanos, and is thought to be a womanizer in contrast to his brother’s hunger for power.
After Thanos declared war on Titan, orchestrating an attack that killed his and Eros’ mother, Starfox fought alongside Titan survivors, Captain Mar-Vell, and the Avengers to put a stop to Thanos’ campaign.
Is Eros a villain in the MCU?
No, if the MCU follows the path of the comics, Eros is not a villain.
Despite often giving into romantic temptation, Eros stays true to his word to protect.
Before Captain Mar-Vell dies, he asked Eros to protect his companion, Elysius, and Eros honors that promise until relieved from his duty.
What are Eros’ powers in Marvel comics?
Like other Eternals, Eros has many superhuman abilities, including the power to manipulate cosmic energies.
Starfox also has a higher intellect than most, superhuman strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, senses, and durability, as well as Psionics – the ability to regenerate molecules.
Additionally, Eros uses teleportation, controls gravity, frequently flies, and has a heightened ability to stimulate the pleasure centers of anybody within 25 feet of him.
