Born Azura, and member of the Eternals, Théna is the only daughter of Cybele and of Zuras, another Eternal. Son of the powerful Kronos, Zuras maintains a rivalry with his brother A’Lars (who is therefore Thena’s uncle) over who will rule after their father’s death. Zuras ends up triumphing and banishing A’Lars to the planet Titan, where he unites with the only survivor of the place: the so-called Sui-San.
Together, they repopulate Titan and give birth to a son: the famous Thanos, whose dire fate we unfortunately know.
