Gregor Buhkarov had been collected to assemble alongside fellow humans selected and empowered to become collectively known as the Young Gods. The Godesses of the Earth were recruiting fine specimen of humanity to present to the Celestials at the time of their next judgement. If the specimen were deemed worthy, humanity would be allowed to survive and further achieve their potential. If not they would be eliminated. They were in preparation for the coming of the Celestials in their Forth Host. Gregor represented humanity's potential given her hunting skills. Numbering in the dozen, the Young Gods were offered by Gaea acting on behalf of the goddesses to the Celestials, examples of the great potential in humanity. Arishem the Judge would accept the Young Gods and give a favorable verdict towards Earth and humanity and then the Celestials would depart taking the Young Gods with them to the Celestial Mothership. Now engineered into a mutate having been enhanced by the Celestials, Gregor would adopt the title of Mindsinger.

War with the Eternals
After years of waiting on the silent and unmoving Celestials for a sign, the Young Gods go mad and descend into deviant behavior for the hopes of even the slightest acknowledgement. They then decide that the Celestials must wish for them to use their powers and act on their own. Upon deciding this, the group left the Celestials' spacecraft and returned to Earth, where they intended to use the consciousness of all humans on the planet to create a new Celestial. They decide to start with the island nation of Madripoor and extend outwards.
Upon learning of this, the Eternals, who were unaffected by the Young Gods' power to drain consciousness, encountered and attempted to stop them. Both Mindsinger and Brightsword attempt to subdue Ikaris the former leader of the Eternal's. Mindsinger morphs himself to entrap Ikaris and coats himself onto him. He does so to set him up for Brightsword's follow up but Ikaris turns the tables around and defeats them both. Eventually, the Eternals convince Varua that the Celestials may have been testing them with their silence and coming to Earth may be the wrong choice. While Varua hesitates to ponder the possibility of being wrong, she is killed and Mindsinger and the other Young Gods who had not been killed during battle with the Eternals immediately fall to the ground, seemingly dead.
