The Korvac Saga

The Avengers, still aboard the Collector's ship, discover that the reason for Thor's recent sudden appearances and confusion is that the Collector had been moving Thor around in time in order to have him rescue the Avengers, so that the Avengers would still exist. The Avengers use the Collector's technology to teleport back to earth. Korvac's origin is given, as is the fact that Carina was sent by her father, the Collector, to gain the favor of then betray Korvac. However, she fell in love with Korvac, and couldn't do it. Korvac became all powerful when he was transported aboard Galactus' abandoned ship, and absorbed its limitless knowledge. The Avengers recruit Starhawk in order to help find The Enemy.
