The Eternals Likely Invented The Title Of Sorcerer Supreme

Warning! Spoiler for Eternals: Celestia #1 by Marvel Comics

The Eternals have existed for over a million years in the Marvel Universe, meaning they have come face-to-face with some of the oldest heroes and villains across the cosmos. However, when Ajak first met the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC in Eternals: Celestia #1 by Marvel Comics, she was quick to categorize the group's magic-user into a new classification as the Earth's Sorcerer Supreme. It seems the Eternals came up with the title of Sorcerer Supreme.

Marvel Comics has brought back the Eternals to a new generation of readers in Kieron Gillen, Esad Ribic, and Matthew Wilson's current ongoing Eternals series. The Jack Kirby-creations were previously sidelined in the comics, but with the Eternals film arriving in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the new comic arc, Marvel gave Gillen and his creative partners the chance to reintroduce the characters ahead of their live-action debut. The arc has been nothing short of brilliant, as it's redefined the characters for a modern audience while building on the complicated lore of the Eternals in exciting ways.

In Eternals: Celestia #1 by Kieron Gillen, Kei Zama, John Livesay, Matthew Wilson, and Clayton Cowles, the comic takes a deep dive into the backstories of Ajak and Makkari - two Eternals who haven't been featured in the current run of Eternals. The comic reveals that Makkari lost her hearing, speech, and telepathic abilities after a dangerous encounter with the Dreaming Celestial. Meanwhile, Ajak, the translator for the Celestials, is struggling with her creators abandoning the Eternals. The comic flashes back more than one million years ago, where Ajak encounters the Avengers of 1,ooo,ooo BC, who attack the Eternal for her connection to the Celestials. In the fight, Ajak gathers data on the Avengers. She notes their magic-user (Agamotto) is very powerful despite his humanoid form, as she classifies him as the "Sorcerer Supreme."

The comic suggests that Ajak is responsible for creating the title of "Sorcerer Supreme" on Earth. It's a fun nod to the Eternals' ancient history and their encounters with Agamotto and the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC.

In the end, the Eternals determined the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC were not big enough threats to their mission that they needed to be exterminated. However, Ajak noted that Agamotto was a significant powerhouse worth keeping an eye out for - creating the specific "Sorcerer Supreme" classification for Earth's powerful magic-user. While it's not officially confirmed the title of Sorcerer Supreme existed before the moment, Eternals: Celestia strongly hints Ajak created the moniker.
