Harek Korgon is a viking who was mutated by an extra-terrestrial energy source, and became a leader of a settlement near the North Pole. He lives with his people in a crystal dome powered by his mutant energy that creates an artificial habitable climate.

As a Moral

Harek Korgon was once a mortal man living in a kingdom in the Arctic many centuries ago. He was in love with a Princess named Valthjona. Valthjona's father, King Rothgar, disapproved of the relationship because of Korgon's status. Fleeing their home village by night, Korgon and the Princess were caught in an extra-terrestrial explosion that rendered Korgon blind and killed Princess Valthjona. A furious King Rothgar allowed Korgon to remain in the village, but the mutations caused by exposure to the radiation from the explosion caused him to grow in height, and "cry" energy from his eyes. He eventually came to refer to the energies as the "Darkfield Illumination". This made the villagers wary of him, and he was eventually exiled. Wandering the arctic, Korgon gathered together a group of followers and established a settlement near the North Magnetic Pole to isolate themselves from society. There Korgon constructed the crystal dome powered by Korgon's energy emissions where his followers and their descendants would live undetected for a thousand years. Korgon would send out his followers to observe society and bring back technology, which allowed his people to make significant technological advancements.


Korgon's location was revealed to the the Fantastic Four when a strange mist appeared in New York City. Reed Richards analyzed the mist tracked it back to the dome. When the Fantastic Four show up to investigate, Korgon's followers captured them and explained that after one thousand years, the effort of maintaining the dome has weakened him to the point of near death and insanity. [1] Korgon sought Reed's help, but his followers sabotaged Reed's plans, causing Korgon's powers to be amplified. Meanwhile, Odin had been monitoring Korgon's situation. Odin intervened by sending his son Thor when Korgon finally went insane and began going on a rampage. Eventually Thor and the Fantastic Four were able to subdue Korgon long enough for Odin to restore his mental and physical health by stabilizing his powers. Odin explained that Korgon had a responsibility to his people to maintain the dome and govern with wisdom, which Korgon acknowledged and accepts. With the crisis over, the Fantastic Four and Thor departed, leaving Korgon and his followers to continue their lives in seclusion. [2] The subsequent fate of Harek Korgon and his people are unknown.
