Kingo Sunen is one of the stronger ones, the brute force among the team. In various trailers, he shoots blasters from his hands. In the comics, he is the skilled swordsman of the team and he became a samurai fighter resulting for him to be a famed action star in Japan. His preference for fighting is like that of humans and he does not rely on his cosmic powers as an Eternal.

While he had limited appearances in the comics, it was revealed that he hailed from Japan where he was able to build his love for humans watching them and being with them in the mountains of Hokkaido. While it seems that the movie will not be following this, Kingo would be hailing from Pakistan, still an actor, and still, he remains to be one who cares a lot about humans.
