Powers and Abilities

Korg is extremely strong. There is a tough, dark rock covering the surface of his bulky body.

He can also project blast of energy from his hands.


History

Korg is a native of an alternative reality. His Earth fell victim to the madness of its Sersi. He was saved by Proctor, who claimed his reality had also been a victim of his Sersi. Proctor recruited Korg into his second team of Gatherers, to hunt down and stop the Sersi’s of other dimensions before they did the same to their worlds.

Some travellers to alternate realities have trouble physically adapting to a dimension where a version of them already exists. They can be left disoriented and weakened. Proctor discovered the ’Gathering‘ ritual as a way around this. It involves locating the traveller’s counterpart and killing them.

But since Korg is probably a counterpart of the Thing, it’s unlikely he’s undergone the Gathering.

Earth-616

While Proctor was advancing his machinations against Sersi, some of his new Gatherers attacked the Black Knight (Dane Whitman) and Sersi, without his permission. When the battle turned against them, Proctor teleported them away, and castigated them for their actions.

Korg in mid-leap

He soon confronted and captured Sersi, bringing her to his secret base. There he revealed to her who he was and how he had caused her breakdown.

Proctor moved his machines to the middle of New York. He used the captive Sersi and Ute as power sources for these, to begin the collapse of reality. The Avengers rushed to the scene, and clashed with Proctor and his Gatherers.

When Proctor was momentarily stunned by lightning, the feedback from his link with the Gatherers knocked them all unconscious. Before Proctor could fully come to, the freed Sersi ran him through with his own Ebony Blade.


Personality

Korg is a brawler, attacking all problems head on.

Although not as impulsive as Tarkas, he’s equally happy to lead the attack against the Gatherers foes.


Quotes

“It’s batterin’ time.”

“Cool your pits, Proctor babe, I’m on it.”


DC Universe History

The Gathering would probably work better in the DC Universe. There it’s already established that travellers in Hypertime  cannot survive on a world where a counterpart of them already exists. Substitute Zatanna for Sersi, and the Justice League for the Avengers.
