Superhero Name: Druig
Created By: Jack Kirby
Played By: Barry Keoghan
Powers: Near-immortality, super strength and stamina, telepathy – including being able to find people’s fears and force them to experience those fears in a waking nightmare/a threat to manipulate them into doing what he wants – illusions, telekenesis, flight, cosmic energy projection, teleportation and matter transmutation – Druig is so good at this he is comparable to Sersi.
Mini Bio: Druig is the power hungry one out of the Eternals, and has a resentment towards humanity. Over the years, he has been around during wars, and has been accused of controlling the Mongols in 1242AD, though that proved to be untrue.
In more modern times, Druig has worked for the KGB in Russia, and been the deputy prime minister of Vorozheika, before taking over the country entirely. Since then, Druig used his position to send spies out to find other Eternals to weaken their minds and get them to follow him, so he can eventually lead the Eternals himself.
