Eternicus, also known as the Cosmic Claw, is a character from the 2000 AD strip Dan Dare. It was an apparently in some way alive and potentially sentient piece of technology, an alien artefact in the shape of a metal gauntlet, which had incredible destructive capability. It was acquired by Dan Dare and worn by him during the period in which the Mekon had made him a fugitive from the galactic authorities. The Lystrians, inhabitants of the planet Lystria, gave it to him in the hope that he could use it to stop the Mekon stealing their Crystal of Life and using it to revivify himself.
