Karkas Young Deviant Mutate with red, scaly skin. While Karkas' mother was still pregnant with him, she had experiments performed which she hoped would prevent him from become born a Mutate, but they were unsuccessful- Karkas was born misshapen, and was labelled a Reject. He spent most of his young life in the gladiator rings of Lemuria. Early in his life, Karkas was somehow spirited away from Lemuria by the super-criminal the Leader, who intended for Karkas to fight his enemy the Hulk, but Karkas escaped him, along with his fellow prisoners Hercules and Wolverine. Karkas was later brought back to Lemuria, and forced back into the arenas. During the visit of the Eternal Thena, Karkas was chosen by Brother Tode to battle Ransak the Reject. Ransak defeated him by uncovering his weak spot, the back of his neck, but Thena was impressed by Karkas, and brought him to Olympia for sanctuary. In Olympia, Karkas became a scholar, and accompanied the Eternals on missions, often disguised as a tall, red-haired man. He was particularly fond of quoting Thoreau, and playing chess, and came to master the technology of Olympia. He has even learnt how to employ limited mental powers such as the Eternals do, and can create an illusionary human disguise for himself. For all his honor and loyalty, Karkas has never attained full status in their society. He finally left Olympia to pursue a brief film career with Kingo Sunen and Ransak, then joined Kro's rebellion against Ghaur. Recently, Karkas was mutated by Apocalypse into an immense monster which the Eternals battled, and was finally defeated by Ransak. Karkas has since been restored to his normal appearance, and with Ransak, acts as an aide to Brother Kro. -Eternals (v.1)#8-10, 12, Eternals Annual#1, Thor#285-289, 291-292, Eternals (v.2)#1-2, 4-5, 9-12, Silver Surfer Annual#1, Avengers#310, Eternals: The Herod Factor, Avengers#370-371, Fantastic Four Unlimited#10, Heroes For Hire#5-7, Wolverine#144, New Eternals#1, Black Panther (v.3)#27

Khult Alien Deviant from the planet Tebbel, father of Nirvana. 25,000 years ago, when Lord Tantalus invaded Tebbel, he planned to kill Khult and Nirvana at the Building of Knowledge, where they worked as astronomers, but when he found that his "Black Legacy" did not affect Nirvana, due to experiments performed by Khult making her genetically perfect, he took her as his bride. Nirvana bore Tantalus four sons, but the fourth, Lucian, was genetically unstable, and she killed herself in fear of Tantalus. Tantalus kept her body in suspended animation within a field of his Black Legacy on Armechadon, and made off for Earth with Khult by his side. After being stranded by the Celestials on Earth, Khult constructed a Transponder Portal which he used to return to Armechadon and become the planet's ruler, behind Tantalus' back. Ultimately, when Tantalus returned to Armechadon, he openly sided against him, and equipped Lucian's staff, the Shadowlance, with additional power to destroy him. Following Tantalus' death, Khult took command of his Peacekeepers, and returned to Earth to rule Tantalus' kingdom of Lyonesse. -Avengers#371, Thunderstrike#7, Blackwulf#1-2, 8-10

Kro Pink-skinned Deviant who has existed for centuries, as far back as the time of the Great Flood. His genetic structure is unique to the Deviants, giving not only an unusual life-span, but immunity to the powers of Ghaur and the Brain-Mines, a heart which is not located in the center of his chest, and the ability to re-shape his body as he wishes. 2500 years ago, he fought the Eternals in Babylon, and first met Thena. He could have slain her, but chose not to, and the two of them slowly came to love one another over the years, though their first trip to Lemuria was not a pleasant tale. Kro perpetuated a myth that with each generation, he was his own descendent, hoping to keep the Deviant society from wanting to dissect him. In the 1940s, claiming to be Satan, Kro made various attempts at spreading chaos on earth, then later began sending out Mutates, but was opposed by Makkari and the Monster Hunters. He and a squad of Deviant soldiers also attempted to capture Pixie from the super-hero team the First Line, but when they failed, Kro slew all his men with "Purifier" detonators. During the Vietnam War, Kro and Thena met admist the battlefield, and consummated their passion, resulting in the twins, Donald and Deborah Ritter.

At the arrival of the 4th Host, Kro was sent to the City of the Space Gods to prevent the Celestials' arrival, but he was unsuccessful. Kro then disguised himself as "Satan" again, and led his "Demons" on a rampage in New York, hoping to lead the humans to the Celestials so that they would destroy them. But when Thena arrived, Kro called a truce, and visited City College, where he introduced his species to humanity. He then brought Thena to Lemuria again, to show her Ransak. Impressed by Ransak's stability, Kro wanted to preserve him from harm, but feared what might happen to him in the arena. Ultimately, Thena gave Ransak sanctuary in Olympia. Kro was among the Deviants who aided in the New Lemuria project, which was ultimately a failure. He also participated in Brother Tode's plan to steal the Eternals' immortality, against his better judgement, and ended up turning against his people. While he was in Olympia, he placed a Brain-Mine on Thena, allowing him to subtely influence her. Thena released him from Olympia, and he returned to Lemuria, hoping to take over the nation. However, he found that the Priesthood had taken command, and while he became ruler in name, he had no true power. Ghaur sent him on a mission to the Pyramid of the Winds to retrieve a Vial. Kro was successful, but was saved from death at Ikaris' hands only by Thena's intervention. In Lemuria, Kro and Thena learnt the truth of "Purity Time", and of Ghaur's intention to become a Celestial, and they helped bring about his defeat. Kro then resumed leadership, but it was short-lived, and he retreated to the Pyramid of the Winds to escape his people. He was eventually re-united with Thena and their children, who he later made join his "Delta Force" against Ghaur. While leading his rebellion against Ghaur, Kro was caught in an explosion caused by Apocalypse, but survived, and has been restored to the throne of Lemuria- but with Ghaur once again manipulating events behind his back. -Red Raven Comics#1, Captain America Comics#1-11, Eternals (v.1)#1-6, 8-10, 13, Thor#285-286, Iron Man Annual#6, Eternals (v.2)#2-12, Avengers Annual#17, Quasar#12, Eternals: The Herod Factor, Avengers#370-371, Fantastic Four Unlimited#10, Heroes For Hire#5-7, Marvel Universe#4-7, Marvel: The Lost Generation#10.

However, this same energy imparted cosmic powers to all the Eternals within a 200 mile radius, and Kronos has continued to exist as a cosmic being, one of the embodiments of time. Kronos devoted centuries in the pursuit of Infinty, the true embodiment of time. In recent times, Kronos has been defeated by his grandson Thanos on two occasions, but created Drax the Destroyer from the remains of Arthur Douglas to oppose him. After Maelstrom lost his coporeal form, he met Kronos in space, and learnt of the Anomaly from Kronos. As a result of this, Maelstrom became the new Anomaly, and a representative of Oblivion. It was because of Oblivion and Infinity's subsequent battle that Kronos finally glimpsed Infinity. -Iron Man#55, Captain Marvel#29, 31, What If (v.1)#25, Quasar#19, 25, Infinity Gauntlet#3-6, Cosmic Powers Unlimited#4
