• "The Day of the Gods" – (17-page story) – Dr. Daniel Damian, his daughter Margo, and his assistant Ike Harris are discovering the God Chamber. Harris is revealing his true name is Ikaris. He's explaining to the Damians that the gods (we learn they are Celestials) came to Earth to create from a common ancestor three species of Hominidae - the Deviants, the Humans and the Eternals. Ikaris, as an Eternal, was searching this God Chamber since a thousand years to activate the Cosmic Beacon.
Over the Pacific, a human plane is destroyed by Kro to protect the secret of the undersea Lemuria. Tode is ordering him to find the God Chamber and to destroy the Cosmic Beacon.
• "Will the Gods Return Someday?" – (1/2-page text article) – Jack Kirby explains how ancient beliefs influenced him to create the Eternals.
