Fictional character biography
In the Marvel Universe
, Kro is the leader of the Deviant
race, an evolutionary
offshoot of the human race
created by the Celestials
. He is one of the first Earth Deviants created. Besides being a shapeshifter
, he is immortal and one of the very few Deviants that are attractive by human standards. He hides this from his fellow Deviants by pretending to be a long line of fathers/sons. Also hidden from the
Deviants is his long-standing (20,000 years) on-off relationship with Thena
, leader of the Eternals and mother of their twin children, Donald & Deborah Ritter
In the past, Kro has disguised himself as the Devil in order to try to influence or frighten humans. His control over his own molecules renders him immune to the genetic manipulations of Ghaur.
Kro is also the founder of the Delta Network.
