    Phastos is an Eternal, a nearly immortal race created thousands of years ago by the alien Celestials. Being a weapon-smith, Phastos was mistaken for the Olympian god Hephaestus during the days of ancient Greece. Phastos is more reticent than his other Eternals, having a melancholy spirit and an ambivalence toward fighting. When Apocalypse tried to incite a new war with the Deviants, the Eternals decided to go public as superheroes. In his new identity, Phastos adopted the codename Ceasefire.


    Created by writer Peter B. Gillis and artist Sal Buscema, the Eternal Phastos first appears in the first issue of the second volume of Eternals.
