Starforce member and servant to the Supreme Intelligence, Kree Pursuer Corp, cyber-geneticist on Kree-Lar
Place of Birth
Formerly Phalanx Select, Starforce, Kree Pursuer Corps
As a Kree, Korath has a superhuman strength, endurance, speed, and reflexes. Since being implanted with the Pursuer templates
these have all been enhanced to an unrevealed degree.
Korath has been trained in
ancient Kree martial arts; however, he is relatively inexperienced in armed and unarmed combatant. In addition, Korath is an expert in cyber-genetic engineering.
Korath wears an armored battle-suit and helmet composed of unknown alien
materials. The armor also has the ability to psionically locate individuals by tracing their brain patterns. Also, the electrically powered turbines in his boots grants him the ability to fly.
Korath often carries two beta batons capable of firing strong energy blast capable of stunning opponents into unconsciousness on contact, or
disrupting functions of electrical devices.
Korath-Thak was a brilliant cyber-geneticist who was one of the creators
of the Pursuer Project to develop cybernetic warriors for the Kree militia (the project created an energy template that used whatever matter it
touched to transform into an entity capable of pursuing and capturing
its targets). The first use of the template was at the instigation
of the Kree science council to bring the Inhumans
of Earth to Hala to serve in their Kree army. The template was beamed to Earth; however, instead of hitting
stones or metal as hoped, it hit and transformed into cockroaches. In this
form, the Pursuer cockroaches had defeated the Inhumans Royal family until an insecticide was used and the templates were stopped. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn more about the races and/or characters.)
Years later, the Pursuer Project was shutdown by the Kree leaders Ael-Dann
and Dar-Benn because they felt that their money was being wasted. Angered at their decision, Korath decided to turn the template
on himself, transforming him into a new Pursuer. Thus, becoming known as "Korath the Pursuer." (To learn about Ael-Dann, click on his highlighted name above.)
Soon after, Korath was summoned by the Supreme Intelligence in secret, along with Ultimus, Shatterax, Captain Att-Lass, and Doctor Minn-Erva, to create an elite Kree military unit known as "Starforce." Korath's first duty at a member of the Starforce was to capture the fugitive Avengers on Kree-Lar. He was able to easily track them down and neutralize a couple of them; however, he was eventually defeated by Captain America. Afterward, Korath was sent down again to defeat the Avengers, but his time he went with his Starforce team. The Supreme
Intelligence actually had given the Starforce false intelligence that the Avengers were in
league with a Shi'ar assassin who intended to kill Ael-Dan and Dar-Benn. The Starforce succeeded in intercepting the Avengers. Unknown to them, the battle between the two teams created a distraction that allowed Deathbird to breach security and kill both Ael-Dan
and Dar-Benn. As this was the Supreme Intelligence's plan all along, he retook leadership of the
Kree. Then in retaliation, the Supreme Intelligence sent the Starforce o assassinate the Majestrix of the Shi'ar: Lilandra. However, they were stopped by the Avengers and the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. The Starforce where then imprisoned by the Shi'ar. (Click on the names above to learn about the

Soon after, the Nega-bomb decimated the Kree on Hala and the Shi'ar moved in and began to rule over the Kree. Korath, and the rest of the Starforce, we released from prison and forced to serve the Shi'ar led by Deathbird. While serving Deathbird, Korath and the Starforce battled Admiral Galen-Kor of the Kree and his criminal forces.

At one point, the Supreme Intelligence was able to regain control of the Kree Empire from the Shi'ar. However, Korath and and many other Kree were considered defectors and were exiled. Therefore, Korath, and many of the other exiled Kree, left and were able to find refuge on the world of Godthab Omega. While there, they lived in peace, but kept up with current events of
the Kree Empire through sympathizers on
various Kree hub worlds. (To learn about the world above, just click on its highlighted names.)
Later on, the newly exiled Kree, Ronan the Accuser (also a former member
of the Starforce), found his way to Godthab Omega in search of Tana Nile. Upon his arrival, Korath informed Ronan that Tana Nile was last seen with Gamora as one of her Graces. This led to Ronan battling with Gamora who was defending Tana Nile. However, the stopped battling each other when Annihilus, and his Annihilus Wave, attacked.

More recently, the Kree were invaded and cut off from the rest of the universe by the Phalanx, led by Ultron. Ultron used a form of the Technarchy transmode virus to infect/create a team of super-soldiers, known as the Phalanx Select--Korath became one of them. As their super-soldiers, Korath was sent out with Shatterax and Xemnu on a
mission to capture Adam Warlock. However, they failed to capture him due to the interference of Phyla-Vell and Moondragon. After returning back to Hala, Korath was destroyed by Ultron, in front of Shatterax and Xemnu, for his failure.
