Khor the sorcerer was an active practitioner of the black arts in 13th century France. In the year 1245 AD, he was banished to the so called "Land Where Time Stands Still" for some unspecified crime. This realm was apparently a timeless realm where he would live out his exile until the "Earth disintegrated".

By 1941, he discovered a mystical black fog, which allowed him to transport others into his realm and briefly appear on the Antarctic continent. Upon this discovery, he captured the crew of the S.S. Olympus who were on an expedition to the Antarctic region, part of Khor's plan to amass a population of slaves to live in exile with him that he could rule over as king.

His kidnapping attracted the attention of the Vision who traveled to Antarctica to search for the missing explorers. Confronted by Khor, Vision was transported to the timeless land to be his prisoner as well. However, in one on one combat, the Vision proved to be Khor's superior and knocked the sorcerer into a pool of lava, killing him. With Khor defeated, the Vision freed his captives, and they all escaped from the timeless realm.[1]

The latter ability was done by his conjuring by evoking the aid of unnamed demons, witches, and goblins.[1] Any other abilities remain unrevealed.


Khor was trapped in the so-called "Land Where Time Stands Still", only able to leave it through the a mystical black fog that would allow him to materialize for brief periods in Antarctica.

Despite the fact hat he was supposedly ageless, he was not immortal or invulnerable and could be killed by conventional means.[1]



Khor had his own assortment of mystical tomes and books.[1]


Khor used a whip to torture his slaves.[1]
