The figure who became the villain in the film Eternals has finally been revealed in the latest trailer. This is a fact from Kro!
Film Eternal so it’s one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films that will be aired this year, November 5, 2021 to be exact. Approaching its release, Marvel Studios recently released its second trailer. Eternal. The trailer finally leaks the reason why the Eternals didn’t help the Avengers when Thanos ruffled the universe.
When Marvel Studios released the first trailer Eternal in May, they are still keeping a secret who will be the villain in this film. The secret is finally revealed in the second trailer! In the trailer, you can see a mysterious figure who is with Thena. For those of you who don’t know, he is Kro, the leader of the Deviant race who becomes the villain in this film.
Before seeing Kro’s appearance in the movie EternalLet’s see the facts about this criminal!
1. First time appearing in comics Immortal #1 released in July 1976, coinciding with the debut of Eternals in the Marvel universe.
Since Kro and Eternals both debuted in the same comic, this character was also created by legendary comic artist Jack Kirby. Kro is a military leader and sometimes acts as the leader of the Deviant race. Like the Eternal race, the Deviants were also created by the Celestials, the first collection of living beings in the Marvel universe to have the ability to create.
Unlike the Eternals who have perfect physique and characteristics, Deviants have a sinister form and evil nature. This can happen because Deviants are created with an unstable genetic structure. No wonder the two races are said to never get along.
2. One of the early Deviant generation, Kro has the ability to change shape and live eternally.
Besides being able to change shape, Kro can also live eternally like Eternal. Interestingly, Kro hides this ability from the other Deviants by pretending to be his own descendant. If the other Deviants find out about his powers, Kro is afraid that he will be used as an experiment so that the other Deviants can also live forever.
Kro also has horns on his head. That is why, early humans thought Kro was a mythological figure named Pluto. Besides Pluto, Kro is also mistaken for a demon by humans. Kro even used his “demon appearance” to scare humans.
3. Kro can outlive other Deviants because of his ability to maintain mental control over his body.
Amazingly, Kro’s mental control over his body can still be maintained even if he is sleeping or unconscious. It is this ability that allows Kro to live long, be immune to disease and aging, and be able to heal himself. Like Eternal, Kro is almost hard to destroy because of his abilities.
4. Kro’s ability to change shape is also what makes him different from other Deviants.
Kro can change shape into body tissue. Once all of his body tissues have changed to his liking, Kro can stop concentrating and stay in that form until he concentrates again on changing his body.
Unfortunately, Kro’s shapeshifting abilities are limited. He couldn’t change the shape of his bones drastically. In addition, he is also unable to change his weight while transforming. Instead, he could only distribute his weight according to his current form.
5. Kro turns out to have a secret love affair with one of the Eternals named Thena.
Eternals and Deviants were indeed enemies of each other. Even so, Kro turns out to be in love with Thena and her feelings are reciprocated by Thena. In addition to hiding his strength, Kro also hides his love relationship with Thena. In the comics world, they even have twins named Donald and Deborah Ritter.
In the second trailer Eternal, you can see a scene showing the meeting between Kro and Thena, the character played by Angelina Jolie. If you follow the storyline in comics, movies Eternal maybe it will show the love story of Kro and Thena. Plus, Marvel Studios once said that Eternals is a love-themed film.
That’s a fact about Kro, the leader of the Deviant race who became the villain in the film Eternal. After reading the facts above, are you more enthusiastic about looking forward to this film directed by Chloe Zhao?
