History

Overview

Flag of Mongolia

Mongolia is a landlocked sovereign state in East Asia. It is bordered by China to the south and Russia to the north.

Mongol Empire

Genghis Khan was born Temüjin in 1167 in a small Mongol tribe. When he was 13 years old, he succeeded his father as the tribe leader. He led his tribe against two neighbor tribes and obtained the title of The Great Khan, later changing his name to Genghis Khan. In ten years, he unified all the Mongol tribes under his command, and in 1223 he commanded an Empire from Iran to Korea.

During his attempts to conquer China, he sought to obtain the Crown of Confucius that would make him absolute ruler of China. This attempt was thwarted by 1940s time traveler Tommy Tyme who tossed the crown down a supposedly bottomless pit before returning to his own time.[1]

In the 12th century, En Sabah Nur fought his way through a horde of Mongols. He finally arrives at a figure who sits on the ground waiting for him. The figure reveals himself to be Garbha-Hsien. He revealed to En Sabah Nur a giant Celestial Ship that he had never entered. En Sabah Nur was intrigued and stabbed Saul so that he can get into the ship. Nur then walked into the ship and left Garbha-Hsien for dead.[2]

20th Century

In 1940, Mongolia was apparently ruled by a dictator named Ulan Bator who kidnapped Mary Carmody, daughter of the brilliant scientist Professor William Carmody. Carmody was gravely injured and had his brain transplanted into a device to keep it alive, granting him amazing mental powers. As the Eternal Brain, William and his assistant Jim travelled to Mongolia where they rescued Mary and slew Ulan Bator.[3]

When a time traveling Gideon, came back to the past to gain the powers of his fellow Externals by draining their hearts and achieving a type of godhood. He started with Candra, and then made his way Saul's home in Orkhon Valley; Mongolia. Cable, who was aware of a mystery killer taking out Externals, formed a team from that timeline split up and send X-23, Shatterstar and Longshot to Saul's location. But they were too late, for Gideon had cut down Saul's men, confronted Saul in his chambers, killing him, removed his heart and was gone before the team or the other Externals could get there.[4][5]
