A powerful Eternal, Virako is a Polar Eternal, alongside Valkin, Druig and Ajak. In the distant past, approximately 1,000 years ago, the quartet of Eternals came to know and bond with the Asgardian thunder god Thor. Power mad and deceptive, Druig's schemes and machinations brought about the release of three extremely dangerous Deviants; Dromedan, Thunder and Tutinax. In addition, the as-powerful psychic also unleashed a devastating creature known as the World-Devouring Worm. This creature started to grow at an exponential rate, growing the more it devoured. Virako heroically sacrificed himself to neutralize the threat of the World-Devouring Worm by launching himself directly into its mouth, while charged and brimming with energy. Virako is the father of the Eternal Ikaris.
Recently resurrected, he aided his long-time friend Thor after a power vacuum in the Deviants' leadership caused several Deviants to look for ways to acquire power, both raw and political. This brought several of the Deviants, such as Kro and Ereshkigal, to interfere and cause chaos in the affairs of both Eternals, Asgardians and Earthlings. After aiding the thunder god, Virako, alongside Ransak and Karkas, was present at the return of the Eternals to New Olympia.
After the Mad Titan Thanos was resurrected by the Exclusion, he began going on a killing spree, wiping out various Eternals of Earth. After traveling to the city of Polaria, Thanos wiped out many of its inhabitants, including Virako.
