[quote]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…[/quote]
