ISAAC was an extremely advanced Eternal AI that filled the entire interior of Saturn’s moon, and the Eternal’s homeworld, Titan. He was designed to control the artificial biosphere and mechanical operations on the moon.
Prior to one of Thanos’ deaths (or supposed deaths) he infected ISAAC with a virus, to force the AI to terrorize the Eternals when Thanos could not. ISAAC went on to enslave the Eternals and sent them off to battle Mar-Vell and Drax. Starfox, Mentor and Elyuis were able to eliminate the virus and restore ISAAC to proper working condition.
ISAAC eventually built itself an android body and again tried to avenge Thanos. Marv-Vell defeated him by forcing ISAAC to experience the totality of life. ISAAC destroyed its android form and returned to its original programming.
