Powers: Metabo possesses superhuman strength in all four of his limbs, placing him roughly in the strength class an average Eternal. He is also able to absorb the cosmic energies released by Eternals into himself, and project that energy from his eyes.

History: (Thor#286)- Metabo was first employed by Warlord Kro in New Lemuria, to battle the invading Thor and his Eternal allies. Metabo was a mutate, specially bred to combat Eternals, and managed to defeat Thena, Sersi and Ikaris using his powers. However, he proved unable to absorb the energies of Thor, and Thor knocked him unconscious in battle.

(Avengers#370 (BTS))- Years later, Metabo was revealed to be a member of Kro's Delta Network, made of Deviants wishing to create better lives for the Deviant people. Metabo's strength was not required for Kro's mission to save the Avengers in Lemuria, so he was not contacted.
