Secret Wars: Korvac Is Back!

"A bad neighbor is a misfortune…"

Thanks to Marvel's upcoming Secret Wars pizza fest, big, bad Korvac is back and this time he's… good? Writer Dan Abnett is bringing his cast from Guardians 3000 into a new Secret Wars Korvac Saga. This Guardians will join forces with Korvac to battle that evil… wait… The Avengers, led by Wonder Man? Well, guess there are a lot of people who'd like to punch the Avengers in the face, but let's see what Abnett has to say about this situation:

"In the hierarchy of Battleworld, Wonder Man is another lord, on a par with Korvac. They rule neighboring domains. The Avengers (a great line up) are Wonder Man’s retainers, the equivalent of Korvac’s Guardians. There’s a power struggle going on between these powerful lords and their kingdoms. It’s mainly political, but it could get physical at any moment. Exactly the wrong time for trouble to arise in Korvac’s domain."

 

Featured in this Battleworlds title are said domains:

"The Forest Hills, a version of New York, is Korvac’s Kingdom (Forest Hills was where he faced down the Avengers and the Guardians back in the original "Korvac Saga"). Wonder Man’s kingdom is called the Holy Wood."

 

So why would the Guardians follow Korvac? Abnett has this reasons:

"Michael Korvac was originally a villain, but he became more complex than that in the classic Avengers “Korvac Saga” (by George Perez and others). He was a god-like, Beyonder-level cosmic force who wanted to challenge the great cosmic powers and bring order to the Universe. He was almost a force for good… except that he was ruthless and capricious. Trying to stop him, the Avengers and the Guardians all died… no kidding. Korvac restored them because he regretted his actions and saw what he had become, and then negate himself so as not to risk endangering the Universe with his power.

It’s that Korvac we’re dealing with: noble, determined, high-minded and essentially trying to rule fairly and justly, and look after this people. He’s not a bad guy. The Guardians are his police, his bodyguards, his retainers. They are loyal to him because they believe in him. But there’s a dark, dark menace arising in his kingdom that threatens his rule, his people, a lot more besides…"

Speaking on that dark menace…

"Apart from the opposition of Wonder Man and his Avengers? Which includes Captain Marvel, Jocasta, Black Panther, Hercules, the Vision, Moondragon, Yellowjacket and Black Widow? Apart from that? Well, the menace is a madness that is corrupting and transfiguring Korvac’s people, like a disease, but also a kind of ‘idea virus’. It is the gateway to some unthinkable ideas…"

Uh oh.

Joining Abnett to chronicle this Summer's Korvac Saga is artist Otto Schmidt.
