Brew’s Crew: Korath the Pursuer

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:14671:]]There are so many interesting beings in the Kree and Skrull hierarchies that I try to examine the major (and minor!) ones here for you. One of those is the being known as Korath the Pursuer!

Korath-Thak was a Kree cyber-geneticist and the founder and head of the Pursuer Project to develop cybernetic warriors for the Kree militia. He has also been a munitions manufacturing plant foreman, and a special operative of the Supreme Intelligence.

In the film Guardians of the Galaxy arriving in theatres in August, Korath will be portrayed by Djimon Hounsou.

Korath used cyber-genetic technology of his own design to gain superhuman powers during the Kree/Shi’ar War. He then met Shatterax, Ultimus and Supremor. At the behest of Supremor, he attacked the Avengers force on Hala, and battled Captain America. Alongside the Kree Starforce, he again battled the Avengers on Hala. He witnessed the assassination of Ael-Dan and Dar-Benn by Deathbird and the return to power of the Supreme Intelligence. Alongside the Kree Starforce, he was held captive in a Shi’ar stasis ray. He witnessed a battle between an Avengers force and was defeated by the Scarlet Witch and Astra.

Alongside the Kree Starforce, he arrived in the Shi’ar Empire to assassinate Lilandra. He battled another contingent of Avengers and the Shi’ar Imperial Guard. Kurath returned to Hala alongside Lilandra, Starforce and the Imperial Guard after the detonation of the Nega-Bomb to help the Kree rebuild under Shi’ar rule. Alongside the Shi’ar Starforce and Deathbird, Korath attacked Quasar, Her and Makkari on Hala for violating Shi’ar airspace.

Admiral Galen-Kor and his criminal forces battled Deathbird and Starforce. Korath and Starforce alongside the Underground Legion battled Lord Tantalus. Korath wound up settling on the planet of Godthab Omega. Korath was reunited with Ronan when he came to the planet in search of Tana Nile. Korath was apparently assimilated into the Phalanx and became one of their “Select.” He fought Quasar, Moondragon, and Adam Warlock, and was seemingly killed by Ultron when he failed to capture Adam Warlock.

Whether Korath will pursue anyone again is unknown – but if he does, dear reader, you will know who he is!

New Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Details Include Thanos, Gamora, & Drax Wanting To Kill Ronan

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10443:]]

A batch of new Guardians of the Galaxy movie details has surfaced from the latest issue of Empire Magazine mentioning Thanos, Gamora, Drax, Star-Lord, Nebula, Korath and Ronan.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige let loose the following details on the characters:

On the Guardians of the Galaxy:

They are an unlikely band. It’s pure circumstance that brings them all together throughout the course of the movie.

On Rocket Raccoon:

Rocket has been genetically and mechanically altered, he’s an experiment from one part of the galaxy.

On Groot:

Groot is a species that happens to look like trees look, and is quite communicative if you can understand the different inflections in the way he says, ‘I am Groot.’

On Star-Lord:

Peter Quill left Earth in the mid’80s, but when we meet back up with him he is very much a citizen of the universe.

On Drax:

Drax has one goal and one goal only, which is to kill Ronan because of a past tragedy.

On Gamora, Nebula, Korath, Ronan and Thanos:

When we meet Gamora, she’s a bad guy working with Ronan and Nebula and Korath, and by extension for Thanos. Gamora doesn’t necessarily like doing that anymore, and tries to find a new path for herself. But she has a reputation as the deadliest woman in the galaxy that people aren’t greeting her with open arms.

The Guardians of the Galaxy movie has an August 1, 2014 release directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt as Peter Quill Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer and Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Lee Pace as Ronan, Djimon Hounsu as Korath the Pursuer, with John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey and Glen Close as Nova Prime.

Also rumored for the movie are Ophelia Lovibond and Enzo Cilenti with the voice actors for Rocket Raccoon and Groot yet to be cast.
