Hickman's a good place to start. Aside from being perfectly suited, he also wants to do it.
I just don't think between his biweekly Avengers book and New Avengers he will have the time or energy to do the necessary world building.

Check out my New Blog! Just a random assortment of ideas, thoughts, and reviews!
I don't think it's impossible to make the Eternals in the 616 universe fully work but as berk has been stating for a while now there certainly are problems in keeping them there because their role is kind of filled out by either the Avengers or Defenders.
You'd have to dramatically increase the scope to the point in which it overshadows even the Avengers and the Eternals can take a more front and center approach to the threats whether it be in conjunction with the Avengers or having the Avengers defer to them kind of similar to the original Guardians of the Galaxy. There's certainly merit to Expletive's suggestion of just proliferating them and integrating them more into the Avengers books or the MU in general with perhaps them meeting only when something in dire need of the Uni-Mind is necessary.
There's also the possibility that the Eternals just doesn't lend itself all that well to an ongoing since coming up with world ending threats in every arc can be a bit much to throw out there unless you counter that with something more in depth like living the life of an immortal, what their world view is, and exploring other cerebral avenues that don't involve just punching/laser blasting stuff.
Gaiman. He understood the characters. Loved the mini.
Hawkeye, X-Men Legacy, FF, Animal Man, Wonder Woman, Manhattan Projects, Fatale, East of West, Bedlam, Saga, Bandette, Nowhere Men
have a new mini set in its own continuity, without Marvel-proper heroic history..
I was just about to make an Eternals thread before I saw this one! I was re-reading Uncanny X-Men actually, with the dreaming Celestial & Sinister and all that, and thought how the Eternals wouldn't be too keen on all this. With that said, I realized I was thinking about the Eternals. Mostly Sersi but w/e. What are they up to currently? I'm pretty sure that last time I saw an Eternal was a pissed Sersi that Jessica Jones tried to stick her dumpy child on. I kinda mix Starfox too, that little rascal. All this Thanos business & no Fox in sight?
Of course, I imagine it wouldn't be easy to find a comics writer who WASN'T more interested in the MU than in the Eternals ... which doesn't say much for comics writers, IMO.
There really is no up-side to forcing the Eternals into the MU.
