Archon first appeared to Steve Rogers and Beast on Mars, while they were investigating the disappearance of Nova. He wanted to know the location of the Martian Serpent Crown, which had overwhelmed Nova and taken him for a host, implying its disappearance would lead to the end of all things.[1]



  • Artist Mike Deodato on creating the design for Archon:
"My influence for Archon is, of course, Jack Kirby. With the mighty Marvel Universe, it almost has to be, doesn't it? As the script read: "This guy is the Archon - imagine a sci-fi guardian of the gateway to the end of reality as designed by Jack Kirby, basically. He's big and thick and powerful, either an alien or an artificial life-form, we can't totally tell. Think someone that could have been a herald of Galactus, crossed with a Celestial kind of thing, too."
