The Uranians are a fictional race in the Marvel Universe.

Many centuries ago, a civil war among Earth's Eternals ended with the losing side, led by Uranos, being banished from Earth. At this point the Eternals had not yet gained their longevity and near-invulnerability, and so Uranos and his followers never possessed these qualities. Uranos and his Eternals arrived on the planet which has coincidentally become known as Uranus, where they discovered a Kree base. Using Kree technology, the warlike Uranos and most of his followers built a spaceship and intended to return and conquer Earth to destroy the other Eternals. Astron and three other, more peaceful Eternals chose to remain behind. Uranos and his faction encountered a Kree armada which destroyed their spaceship. The surviving members of the faction settled on Titan, a moon of Saturn. Their civilization there eventually destroyed itself through civil war, but the sole survivor, Sui-San, together with A'lars, an Eternal from Earth, became the parents of the Eternals of Titan. The peaceful Eternals back on Uranus were the ancestors of the Uranians, who flourished on Uranus until the mid-20th Century when they were wiped out by natural disasters. ["Fantastic Four" #165]
