Fictional character biographyEdit
Phastos's history is very murky. He is a third or fourth generation Eternal who chose to remain on Earth because of his obsessive search for an unidentified item or person.[volume & issue needed] He continues to serve as the master technologist for the Eternal race, and it was his genius which allowed Virako to return from apparent death.[volume & issue needed] Although he despises war, Phastos chose to follow Ikaris into battle against the minions of Apocalypse.
