or Firebird
or Moon Knight
or Machine Man
or Jack-of-Hearts
or Ant-Man (Scott Lang)

I'm not talking about how cool the heroes are "today" or in their respective solo titles. IMHO, during their respective stints as official Avengers, their tenures were fairly pointless and largely forgettable. I suppose the same can be said for Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Girl, and a variety of other members.

Gilgamesh suffered from lack of development while he was on the title. He was basically the designated big stick used to pound on things that needed a brick to do so.

Of all the Eternals, he is really the least well defined. Zuras, Thena, Ikaris, Ajak, Makkari, Sersi, etc all have a fair amount of character definition. Ole Gilg has historically been used as the "everyman Eternal" who gets used when you need some generic Eternal in the story. I think that he will become more interesting in the Eternals title as he actually has an identity carved out for him.

But until that happens, he's going to wallow in irrelevance. Even if he does get a rock-solid character identity, I don't see the point of having him fight Ares.
