Kingo Sunen was a member of the Eternals, an evolutionary offshoot of humanity who possessed extraordinarily long life spans and superhuman powers. He hailed from a Japanese settlement of Eternals in the mountains overlooking the Japanese prefecture of Hokkaido.


Early Life

Not much is known about Kingo's early life beyond his origin from settlement of Eternals from Hokkaido. He was alive in Japan during the 16th century and learned the ways of the Samurai.[1]

Modern Age

In the present day, he has parlayed his skills into becoming a major action film star in Japan and elsewhere, loving to portray Samurai.[1] He teleported to Olympia to meet with the other Eternals to deal with return of the Celestials.[1]

When the Eternals of Earth chose to leave the planet and explore space, Kingo was one of a small band who remained behind.[2] He joined Ikaris and his allies in trying to stop Warlord Kro from raiding the Pyramid of the Winds.[3] They were unsuccessful in trying to stop the Priest-Lord Ghaur from acquiring the essence of the Dreaming Celestial, and thus assuming the power of a Celestial himself. Kingo and the Eternals joined forces with the Avengers West Coast to stop Ghaur from freeing the true Dreaming Celestial.[4]

Powers and Abilities


Kingo Sunen presumably has all the typical powers of Eternals: near-immortality, super-strength, flight, energy projection, and molecular manipulation. However, he eschews the use of these powers in battle, preferring to fight in the traditional manner of the Samurai.
