That's my great-grandfather, that's my grandfather, that's my father, and that's me. I'm part of a great Bollywood dynasty.
~ Kingo to Sprite.
I love the people of this planet. But if you stop this Emergence, you are preventing so many other worlds like this one from being created. I still have faith in Arishem, but I refuse to hurt any of you for my beliefs.
~ Kingo.

Biography

Background

Kingo, along with the rest of the Eternals, was created by Arishem the Judge for the purpose of getting rid of the Deviants. He would eventually be sent to live on Earth in 5000 BC, where he would protect humanity from the Deviants. Unbeknownst to Kingo, Arishem created the Eternals to kill Deviants on a planet that would birth a new Celestial could emerge. During his life on Earth after the Eternals went their separate ways after defeating the Deviants in the 1500s, he spent his days pursuing a career as a Bollywood celebrity, and also became a renowned dancer and director. He also became close with Sprite, but would leave due to humans noticing that she didn't age, and befriended Karun Patel in the 1970s.

Eternals

While performing in Mumbai, Kingo reunited with Sersi, Sprite and Ikaris, who arrived and informed him of being attacked by Deviants and Ajak's death. Kingo decided to join them and brought his assistant Karun as well, reuniting with Thena and Gilgamesh in Australia. Sersi would then learn the truth of their purpose on Earth, and informed the Eternals that they were sent to the planet to start the emergence of Tiamut the Communicator. Planning on opposing the Celestials, the Eternals came up with a plan to put Tiamut in a sleeping state by speaking with Druig in the Amazon Rainforest. At Druig's compound, Kro and the Deviants arrived and started to attack, killing Gilgamesh in the process. After Gilgamesh's funeral, the Eternals traveled to Chicago meet with Phastos, and Druig explained that he wasn't powerful enoguh to affect a Celestial.

Once Phastos agreed to help them build a device to stop the emergence, the Eternals traveled to Iraq to find Makkari and the Domo. It was then revealed that Ikaris knew of the emergence before meeting Sersi and Sprite in London, and that he indirectly caused Ajak's death by tricking her into a trap set by Kro. Kingo was left conflicted on the situation due to his loyalty to Arishem, but refused to fight the others due to having develop a connection with humanity over centuries. After the emergence was prevented, Kingo left the group due to his inner conflict, but was later captured by Arishem alongside Sersi and Phastos.
