BTS - Ksang became a respected exhibitor but he also continued to serve Kâli.
(Marvel Comics Presents#54/4) - Ksang was informed that someone tried to destroy the Kâli Statue of Dark Powers. Seconds later, Firefly stood before him. Ksang told her that Kâli knew what she did when the family of Firefly was killed. He pushed a button and a paralyzing field hit Firefly. Ksang wanted to kill her, but Firefly was saved by Shroud. Ksang knew that they could become a threat to him because Firefly and Shroud had the powers of light and dark. He moved the statue to a warehouse and activated its secret power of death. He left for a phone call and returned with a gun and electromagnetic specs to oppose Firefly and Shroud. Ksang was killed by the statue when Firefly hit it with a circle of light.
Comments: Created by Steve Ditko and Hollis Bright.
As revealed in the first meeting between Ksang and Firefly, Krago is the title for a Cult High Lord of Kâli.
More information to Kâli and the Cults around the goddess can be found in the entry of Kâli.

CLARIFICATIONS: Krago should not be confused with:
Kâli Statue of Dark Powers
The Kâli Statue of Dark Powers was in the possession of Krago. It was moved from an exhibition into a warehouse to protect it from people like Firefly and Shroud. There its secret power of death was activated. When the statue was hit by a light circle it opened its eyes and destroyed the first thing it saw moving. Firefly manipulated it into killing Krago. A short time later it was destroyed by Shroud.
