Marvel has revealed the villain behind the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind roller coaster coming to Disney World next month: Eson, a celestial being from Marvel's Eternals storyline.

"The Celestial is looking 'to right a wrong in a big way,' and the Guardians of the Galaxy -- Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot -- step in to help save the day," Marvel said Friday. Eson is mentioned in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie as having once been in possession of the Power Stone.
