It appears that merchandise for Marvel Studios’ Eternals is beginning to leak based on a new rumor. A potential list of upcoming Funko Pops for the film has surfaced, and it has revealed that two classic characters will appear, Arishem the Judge and Kro.
For fans of Marvel comics, these names will be very familiar as they are both key figures in the Eternals history.
Created by Jack Kirby in 1976, Arishem the Judge first appeared in The Eternals #2. Arishem is the leader of the Celestial hosts and is second only to the One Above All. His role is to judge the worthiness of planets the Celestials visit and decide what shall become of its inhabitants.
Kro was also created by Jack Kirby and first appeared in 1976’s The Eternals #1. Often referred to as the Warlord Kro, he is the leader of the Deviants, an offshoot of humans that have battled the Eternals throughout history. Kro was the first Deviant to be created by the Celestials, and like others of his species, he possesses the ability to shape-shift and has superhuman attributes. In the comics, Kro has had an on and off relationship with the Eternal Thena and even fathered her children Donald and Deborah Ritter.
