Today, The Eternals Do Monty Python For Marvel Comics (Spoilers)

Today sees the publication of Eternals #2 from Kieron Gillen and Esad Ribic. And while these folk have clearly been around for a very, very long time, it is possible that Ikaris has been keeping up on some pop culture in the last fifty years? And at least has a sixth-form common room working knowledge of Monty Python's Flying Circus?

As Ikaris is in pursuit of Thanos after the cliffhanger to Eternals #1, he asks a question of a passing-by peasant and gets asked one in return. No, not whether or not this is the right room for an argument, or who elected Ikaris an Eternal but, "are you a God." A tricky one.

Well, someone has watched Life Of Brian, haven't they?

 

Brian: 'I'm not the Messiah! Will you please listen? I am not the Messiah, do you understand? Honestly!'
Girl: 'Only the true Messiah denies His divinity.'
Brian: 'What? Well, what sort of chance does that give me? All right! I am the Messiah!'
Followers: 'He is! He is the Messiah!'
Brian: 'Now, f-ck off!'

Clearly, Monty Python is catching, as we also get a rather poor reenactment of The Parrot Sketch as well.
