Review & Commentary On 'The unofficial canon project Marvel Super Heroes The Eternals' For The Clasic TSR Marvel Super Heroes Rpg

 So I joined the Marvel Super Heroes Rpg: the Unofficial Canon Projects ages ago & I grabbed a copy of 'The unofficial canon project Marvel Super Heroes The Eternals' pdf & had it copied, spiral bound, and black & white interior. I know that the black & white interior goes against every fiber of Jack Kirby's,  artwork. That being said an entire one & ninety four page black & white book only ran me about twenty dollars. But was it worth it. 

We get an entire overview of all of the usual Jack Kirby Eternals & all of the more obscure eternals as well as the Deviants. But who were the Eternals?! Well, according to Wiki's Eternals entry here; "The Eternals are a fictional extraterrestrial race of humanoids appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. They were created by Jack Kirby, making their first appearance in The Eternals #1 (July 1976).[1]

In the Marvel Universe, the Eternals are an offshoot of humanity known as Homo immortalis which were created one million years ago by the enigmatic alien Celestials to defend Earth with their superhuman powers and abilities. Their primary adversaries are the Deviants, who share a similar origin and pose a regular threat to humanity. Due to their virtual immortality, Eternals have largely secluded themselves from humans, with their god-like status forming the basis of various mythological figures around the world." 

Is  'The unofficial canon project Marvel Super Heroes The Eternals' worth the download?! In a word if your a fan of the older & newer Marvel Eternals material & you want this supplement for your own Marvels Superheroes Rpg campaign or super hero campaign?! In a word yes! Each entry is laid out wonderfully with the same Amazing, stupendous layout we've come to know & love. We get Eternals & Deviants histories, rivalries, adventure locations, planetary colonies, and all of the Eternal info a gamer could want &  much more all for the classic Marvel Super Heroes. 

We get a diverse cross section of  Homo immortalis & it's very well done. We get histories, details, and more on the Eternals themselves. And the same treatment has been done to the Deviants as well. Where the Marvel movie went wrong this download does it right!
