History: (The Eternals Annual I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Zakka had lived for several centuries. He was a Deviant scientist who lived in Deviant Lemuria under the rule of Brother Tode. During his time there, he encountered the mutate Karkas, who was a slave in their gladiator pits. To foment chaos amongst humanity, Zakka was sent to an unidentified city in the USA. Taking the human identity of "Mr. Zachary," he went to live in an apartment and set up his Time Projector to draw forth creatures who would sow chaos and confusion. The first known subject he drew forth was a Neanderthal man.

(The Eternals Annual I#1) - As he toyed with the Time Projector, Zakka was visited by his landlady Mrs. Papp, who had come to collect the rent. Seeing the Time Projector, she thought he was working with a "foreign" movie camera. Playing in to this, Zakka invited her to examine the device and showed her the image of a knight inside its viewfinder. Zakka behaved courteously to Mrs. Papp and sent her on her way then turned the Time Projector to his window and projected the knight he had captured into the city streets. The confused knight then went on an a rampage.

Later, Zakka brought forth Jack the Ripper and sent him to a nearby hotel but the Ripper was prevented from harming anyone by Thena of the Eternals and her Deviant ally Ransak the Reject. When the time limit wore off, Jack the Ripper went back to his own era. Soon after, Karkas, who was now also allied with Thena, was attacked by Attila the Hun and one of his fellow warriors. Karkas easily defeated the pair who were then sent to their own time.

In battling Attila the Hun, Karkas' monstrous appearance frightened the nearby humans away from him. Zakka then appeared next to Karkas, calling the large mutate a "shark among minnows." Karkas retorted that he had no interest in aiding Zakka or the other forces of Brother Tode. Zakka was convinced humanity would eventually destroy themselves but he wanted to hasten their destruction. He pulled out his shock pistol and began firing shots at Karkas. Although the gun stunned Karkas to his knees, he failed to kill him. Zakka promised that his next warrior would be one of the most dangerous living weapons the Deviants ever created.

Using his Dimension-Transit harness to return to his apartment, Zakka set the Time Projector to the age when the Deviants were breeding their most powerful mutates, altering the machine's settings so that it would affect a larger area than usual. However, the mutate he drew forth from the past was Tutinax, whose power to generate fear made him exceptionally dangerous. By mistake, Tutinax materialized in the same room as Zakka. Realizing he couldn't control Tutinax, Zakka reached for his harness to escape but Tutinax grabbed him and beat him to death. When Thena, Ransak and Karkas entered the apartment they found Zakka's corpse hung upside-down, tied to the ceiling.

Zakka should not be confused with:


Dimension-Transit was the name given to the process by which Zakka was able to phase through solid matter and escape Karkas. The energy was generated from a harness which Zakka wore beneath his robe.

--Eternals Annual I#1


A knight on horseback, apparently from medieval England, was summoned forth by Zakka to cause confusion on the city's streets. After the time limit expired, he was returned to his own time and place. He wore metal armor and carried a shield and spiked mace.

--Eternals Annual I#1

Neanderthal man

This Neanderthal man was summoned from the past by Zakka. Brandishing a wooden club, he went on a rampage in the streets of the city before fading back to his own time. The Neanderthal's presence caught the attention of Zuras, who immediately recognized this as Zakka's handiwork. Zuras dispatched Thena, Karkas and Ransak to investigate.

--Eternals Annual I#1

Mrs. Papp

Mrs. Papp was the landlady of the apartment where Zakka was living. She believed him to be "Mr. Zachary" and considered him to be a charming man. She saw him working with his Time Projector but mistook it for a film projector.

--Eternals Annual I#1

Time Projector

The Time Projector was Zakka's invention which could draw beings from the past. Designed to resemble a film project, the device's viewfinder could view images of beings from else in space and time. By "capturing" their image, Zakka could then summon them forth using time-beams so that they materialized wherever the Time Projector was aiming. However, they would return to the same time they left after a certain number of minutes. The Time Projector was apparently destroyed by Tutinax.
