      The million years ago humans were too pretty looking, and far too ethnically diverse.

    While true I think that would be a pain to acknowledge and explain and it would not further this story. Odin looking like a white guy before there were white guys just sounds too complicated to get into.

    I really don't like seeing Odin in this time period. It's in a vague period long before the Vikings would have dreamed him up and well after his story of creating the world from Ymir. I just don't think we should ever see Odin in this time period. It's the part not really touched on in mythology.

Well, Odin & Agamotto get passes, being gods. But the rest of this Prehistoric Avengers team were supposedly human.

This is also my only complaint about Eternals. They should all be brown people with black hair... or change their origin to something more recent, imo. Or just make them shapeshifters.

      Don't like the treatment of Celestials in the past 20 years, and this doesn't seem any different.

    To me the Celestial looked a lot like Leila Davis's Beetle suit.

I didn't mind how this one looked. I thought it was a pretty good modernization of Kirby style.

But Celestials just get beaten too much anymore. They should never, ever be beaten. Not by Franklin and Valeria nor even Doom. Not by all the Skyfathers rolled into one.

Hmm... whatever became of that female Celestial... Ashema?
