Korrek is a strong and able swordsman. He wielded a firesword which spewed mystic fire, and briefly wore a mystic helmet created for him by Dakimh which protected him from dimensional disturbances.
Korrek is a young warrior king of the extra-dimensional barbarian land of Katharta, and became the companion of the sorcerers Dakimh and Jennifer Kale. Korrek carries a sword that projects mystical fire.
Korrek and his warriors began to cross into other dimensions, due to a disturbance in various dimensions caused by a series of activities within the Man-Thing's Citrusville swamp and exacerbated by the demonic Thog. Korrek emerged in a jar of peanut butter, partially consumed by Andy Kale, spread with a knife that became his sword. Korrek encountered Jennifer Kale and the Man-Thing, and was transported to Earth when the dimensional imbalance grew stronger. He joined with the Man-Thing, as well as Howard the Duck who was also brought to Earth due to the imbalance. The odd trio was assaulted by a warrior force sent by the Congress of Realities until Dakimh the Enchanter banished the Congress. Dakimh transported the trio to his castle where they were joined by Jennifer Kale. The group traveled to Therea to prevent Thog and the Congress from overtaking that realm, and the Man-Thing was able to temporarily destroy Thog.
Korrek then returned to Katharta. Upon his return, he found that his father the king had been slain, and that a sorcerer named Klonus had taken over. Klonus enslaved Korrek for a year, until Dakimh sent the Man-Thing to rescue him. Dakimh, Jennifer, and the Man-Thing helped Korrek overthrow Klonus, though Dakimh was slain by Klonus during the battle.
Korrek continued to be an ally to Jennifer Kale, the Man-Thing, and Howard the Duck on future adventures with them.
