Dr. Caitlin Maddox Scientist who has studied genetics in areas of mutant, deviant, and alien concerns. At the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, she tested Skrull-Prime, and created a chemical from its adrenaline, not knowing it was still alive. Lord Tantalus learnt of her prowess, and sent his Peacekeepers to capture her, but she was saved by the Underground Legion. With the Underground, Caitlin saved Skrull-Prime from the military, and joined them on Armechadon in their final battle with Tantalus. There, Maddox learnt that the adrenaline chemical she had injected herself with had made her immune to the touch of Tantalus' Black Legacy. After Tantalus briefly mistook her for his wife Nirvana, Maddox disguised herself as her to fool him, long enough for the rest of the Underground to attack. -Blackwulf#1-10

Maelstrom Son of the Inhuman scientist Phaedar and the Deviant woman Morga. Morga was slain by the Deviants as a Reject, and Maelstrom lived in the slave pits of Lemuria for a time, until his father liberated him. At some point, Maelstrom mated with the Deviant woman Medula, and had a son, Ransak. Over the years, Maelstrom and Phaedar became responsible for many advances in genetic research, and aided geneticists like Arnim Zola, the Enclave, Magneto, Dr. Hydro, and the Jackal. Thanks to the research of Zola, Maelstrom learnt how to transfer his mind to a new clonal body after death, and shared this with his minions, Gronk, Phobius and Helio. Phaedar, however, was too old for the process, and died.

Maelstrom lived mainly in seculsion from the world, until he learnt of the Anti-Terrigan Mist developed by Mr. Fantastic, who had learnt that the mist used by Dr. Hydro to create the Hydro-Men had been based on the Terrigan Mist. As a result, Mr. Fantastic and the Thing fought Maelstrom, and Maelstrom was forced to turn to Deathurge, who had accompanied him for some time, to kill him. On his next body, Maelstrom infiltrated Olympia while the Eternals were engaged in the Ritual of the Uni-Mind. Though he was once again forced to have Deathurge slay him, Maelstrom learnt from the Uni-Mind a means of draining the earth's kinetic energy. This plot, however, was foiled by the Avengers, who fed him more power than he could contain. Maelstrom was scattered into energy, but still lived. In his new form, he met Kronos, and learnt of the Anomaly from him. By slaying the Anomaly, Maelstrom took his place as an agent of Deathurge. He attempted to gain Cosmic Awareness from Eon, then collapse the entire universe into a black hole, but he was defeated by Quasar. His minions, and lover, the Weird Sisters, attempted to revive Maelstrom by draining the life from Karkas, Ransak, Yrdisis, and Donald and Deborah Ritter, and to drain kinetic energy from Makkari. But when Maelstrom realized Ransak was his son, he deliberately allowed himself to lose energy and die. -Marvel Two-In-One#71-72, Avengers#247-250, Quasar#19-25, Fantastic Four Unlimited#10

Maha Yogi Man rendered immortal by a fragment of the bloodstone which he possessed. In medival times, Maha Yogi impersonated Merlin at the court of King Arthur in Camelot, but Sersi uncovered the deception, and Maha Yogi was placed in suspended animation for centuries, reviving in modern times, where he fought Thor, the X-Men, the Hulk, and Dr. Druid. -Journey Into Mystery#95

Mahd W'yry When the Eternals have gone too long without forming a Uni-Mind, they believe that a madness, called the Mahd W'yry, can cause them to go insane. After Sersi formed a Uni-Mind with the Brethren, Ikaris suspected her irrational behavior could be the onset of the Mahd W'yry-Avengers#361

Major Mercury Alias Makkari assumed as a member of the First Line. - Marvel: The Lost Generation#5

Makkari Son of Verona and Mara. Like his parents, Makkari is a member of Olympia's Technologists' Guild. Despite being taught his philosophy by Plato, Makkari is not a great genius, and lacks patience. His love of speed and motion, though having led to some of the swiftest vehicles the Eternals have, has also made Makkari overly impulsive, and many Eternals do not take him seriously. He sometimes wears a protective crash helmet, though he does not truly need it.

Makkari has involved himself in Earth's affairs more often than most Eternals. When Sersi was present in Rome during "Nero's big bonfire", he went there to rescue her. He once spent some time as the charioteer of Darius, the governor of Persia from 548-485 A.D. He has also claimed to have witnessed some of earth's greatest horrors- including the Trojan War, the reign of the Romanian Vlad the Impaler (1456-1476), and the Alamo (1836). In the 1940s, Zuras assigned Makkari to earth, and under the alias "Hurricane", "Mac Carry", "Jake Curtiss" and many others, he fought Kro, and later, Mutates, often alongside the Monster Hunters, a team he formed using his identity as National Security Agent Jake Curtiss. Later on, he met the young rocker Elvis Presley, and taught him a few tricks with the guitar. Following the dis-banding of the Monster Hunters, Makkari was convinced by Pixie to join the First Line as "Major Mercury".

Makkari was among the Eternals who introduced themselves to the students at City College during the 4th Host. Makkari also fought Hermes during this time, a god he has often been mistaken for. Following the departure of most of the Eternals, Makkari assumed Domo's role as chief technologist, but was not entirely successful in this pursuit. He accompanied Ikaris in his battles against the Deviants at this time, and participated in the defeat of Ghaur. Still wishing to gain more speed, Makkari spent 2 years meditating with Master Elo, who taught him how to open up his ability to run, while decreasing many of his other abilities. After Master Elo was captured by the Deviants, Makkari received the aid of the Avenger Quasar in rescuing him, and the two became friends for a long time. During this period, Makkari worked in Quasar's office under the alias "Mike Karhy" and shared an apartment with Quasar. After being separated from Quasar during a mission in space, Makkari learnt of an animal-like race on the planet Grosgumbeek, and gained more insight into speed. With this insight, he participated in a race against the Runner, one of the Elders of the Universe, and won. However, he found that the new technique was flawed- he had become so fast that he could no longer move in synch with the rest of the universe for hours at a time. He ultimately gave up racing, and spent a time journeying through space with another runner, Fastforward. When Maelstrom briefly returned to life, he attempted to seize more power by draining the kinetic energy from Makkari, even though he was light-years away, but the Eternals on earth defeated him. Recently, Makkari has returned to earth. -Red Raven Comics#1, Captain America Comics#1-11, Tales of Suspense#7, Eternals (v.1)#5-6, 8-12, 14-18, Thor#287-289, 291-292, 301, Iron Man Annual#6, Iron Man#179, Avengers#246-248, Eternals (v.2)#1-12, Silver Surfer Annual#1, Avengers#308, 310, Eternals: The Herod Factor, Quasar#11-17, 19-21, 25-28, 30, 35-40, 43, 47, 58, Fantastic Four Unlimited#10, Heroes For Hire #5, Marvel Universe#4-7, New Eternals#1, X-Force#97, Marvel: The Lost Generation#5, 2
