Origin

In an alternative future the alien scavengers known as the Badoon invaded Earth's solar system. Computer technician Michael Korvac betrayed humanity and joined with the Badoon, who transformed him into a cyborg.


Transported through time to participate in a contest of chance orchestrated by the Elder of the Universe known as the Grandmaster, Korvac was able to absorb a portion of the universal elder's cosmic powers make himself more powerful.


In a quest for more power Korvac sought out Galactus' space station. Scanning the immense vessel in an attempt to download knowledge, Korvac was instead imbued with the Power Cosmic gaining god-like powers.
