Korvac was once a cyborg that could analyse and synthesise any form of energy and store and process virtually infinite amounts of information. After absorbing the knowledge and power of the Badoon, the Grandmaster and Galactus's worldship, Korvac became a cosmic being with virtually unlimited powers over matter and energy.
When the alien Badoon conquered Earth in the 31st century, ambitious computer technician Michael Korvac offered his services to the invaders. An obsessive worker, Korvac collapsed at his post. His superiors punished him by amputating his lower body and grafting a hovering computer module onto him at the waist. The vengeful Korvac mastered his new form quickly and killed his supervisors, absorbing all the information available from the Badoon networks. Later, Korvac absorbed knowledge and power on a cosmic scale from the Elder of the Universe known as the Grandmaster, and set his sights on interplanetary conquest.
Opposed by his native timeline's Guardians of the Galaxy, Korvac fled to the twentieth century, absorbing more power and knowledge from the worldship of Galactus until he became like unto a god. When he obtained this state, Michael set his sights on covert, benevolent mastery of the universe.
