2007-07-21 18:11:18 misterpace Powers One of the fastest characters in the Marvel Universe. Although in most of his appearances Makkari has the typical powers of an Eternal, his obsession with speed, starting in the Quasar series, causes him to focus most of his body's Cosmic Energy into enhancing his running speed. As a result, he lost his ability to fly and many of his other powers have been weakened in the process. At present he can run at near light speed for extended periods, but his physical strength (while still far greater than human) has been reduced by half, and he seemingly cannot project energy or manipulate matter. Makkari sometimes wears a protective crash helmet, though he does not truly need it.
2007-07-21 18:11:18 misterpace Bio An Eternal, Makkari has used many identities throughout his long life. Makkari is the son of Verona and Mara. He is a member of the Eternals' Technologist's Guild and is skilled at designing and building high-speed vehicles. Makkari has involved himself in Earth's affairs more often than most Eternals. He was taught philosophy by Plato. He rescued Sersi from "Nero's big bonfire"; and later spent some time as the charioteer of Darius I of Persia. He witnessed the Trojan War, the reign of Vlad the Impaler, and the Alamo. In the 1940s he worked on Earth, per Zuras' request, under the aliases "Hurricane" and "Mercury" (an example of retcon, these Golden Age characters were not originally supposed to be related), and fought Warlord Kro and Deviant Mutates alongside the Monster Hunters, a team he formed using his identity as National Security Agent Jake Curtiss. Later on, he taught Elvis Presley a few guitar tricks. Following the dis-banding of the Monster Hunters, Makkari was convinced by Pixie to join the First Line as "Major Mercury". Makkari was with the Eternals who introduced themselves to the students at City College during the Fourth Host of the Celestials. He accompanied Ikaris in his battles against the Deviants, and participated in the defeat of Ghaur. He became friends with Quasar when he enlisted Quasar to help him save Master Elo, who was tutoring Makkari in how to channel his cosmic energy into more speed; he later worked in Quasar's office under the alias "Mike Khary." He was killed in Quasar #21, but returned to life in "Quasar" #25, as part of an agreement struck between Eternity, Death, Infinity and Oblivion. He participated in a race against the Runner, one of the Elders of the Universe, and won. However, he soon found he had become so fast that he could no longer move in synch with the rest of the universe. Maelstrom later attempted to seize more power by draining the kinetic energy from Makkari, but Maelstrom was ultimately defeated by the other Eternals.
