"Destiny Amidst the Ruins"
After his checkered career as Quasar, Wendell Vaughn succumbs to depression. His father, Dr. Gilbert Vaughn sends him on a mission designed to snap him out of it, and to find the origins of the bands on the planet of Uranus.
Quasar finds a ruined city and someone waiting for him. Deathurge tells Quasar that the city was built by an offshoot of the Eternals, but fell to a sense of pointlessness, and were grateful to Deathurge for ending their existance. Deathurge senses that Quasar came for the same reason, and means to oblige him. Quasar seems helpless to stop him, but before the deathstroke, Quasar is teleported away by the cosmic entity known as Eon...the creature who had granted cosmic awareness to Mar-Vell in order that he could defeat Thanos. Eon fashioned the quantum bands for his annointed Universal Protector. Quasar is now that designate, and so he returns, having defeated Deathurge, to Earth with Eon in tow.
