|Rock of Eternity|
|Official name:||Rock of Eternity|
|Created by:||C.C. Beck|
|First Appearance:||Whiz Comics #2|
The Rock of Eternity was the lair of the wizard Shazam. Created from a large rock formation from Heaven and another from Hell by Shazam, the Rock is a focal point of all magic in Earth. Whoever is chosen as the Rock's guardian becomes bound to the Rock and can only leave it for 24 hours before he/she has to return. The Rock effectively becomes part of the guardian as much as the guardian becomes part of the Rock.
The Rock is also known to be the prison of several evil creatures, such as the Seven Deadly Enemies and the Three Faces of Evil.
It was later revealed that the Rock of Eternity has an opposite, the Rock of Finality.
The Seven Deadly Sins were imprisoned here. Some time around 5,000 years ago, The Champion created the Rock of Eternity from two large rock formations — one from Heaven and one from Hell — to hold the "Three Faces of Evil", a dragon-like demon, captive.
The Rock of Eternity is a nexus of power in a nearby realm of existence that channels power to anyone utilizing the power of the wizard Shazam. It is a way station of power. As the Guardian of the Rock of Eternity, Marvel is now one with the Rock as it is apart of him. He channels the energies of the primal God-wave and the Greek Lords of Magic through the Rock of Eternity. As such he is infused with the duty to keep the power and the magic of the earth realm in balance. As keeper of the Rock of Eternity he also holds the dark forces at bay. The opposite of the Rock of Eternity is the Rock of Finality, where the Seven virtues are sealed in stone.
