Eternity is a character from Marvel Comics. Having come to be at the beginning of Creation, Eternity is the Abstract Embodiment of Time, and the collective consciousness of all living beings. Alongside his "sister" Infinity, the Abstract Embodiment of Space, he is the "physical" manifestation of the Multiverse itself, representing both Time and Space, and collectively All there Is. Alongside Infinity, Eternity has "spawned" various lesser Abstract Entities that represent essential concepts of their own, such as Empathy, Eulogy, Expediency, Entropy, Epiphany, Enmity, and Eon.
Though there exists one complete, greater Eternity for the whole of existence on every plane and level, every universe, parallel realm and dimension containing its own Space-Time Continuum possesses its own sliver of Eternity. Said lesser shards of Eternity are often called "Manifestation-Bodies".
Upon the destruction of the multiverse at the hands of the Beyonders, reality was reborn and Eternity subsequently reemerged as the most powerful abstract in the new Cosmic Hierarchy, now embodying both time and space.
