Master of the World
Self claimed ruler of the world
The Master of the World is over four thousand years old, preserved by the alien Plodex ship. Before that he was a great hunter, but incredibly anti-social. After he was rejected by his tribe, he was lured northward where he was captured by the Plodex ship.
It was supposed to diagnose him, but somehow he was able to implant his mind into the computers. He eventually took control of the ship, but was unable to leave. He sent out a signal to Marrina, herself a member of the Plodex race, which brought her and Alpha Flight behind her. It seems that he knew of Alpha’s existence and used them to escape from the ship.
It is the Master’s intention to one day rule the world and he will so anyway possible. His most recent attempts have involved creating genetically superior people to rule the land. He has particular interest in Marrina, as he believes her genetic structure is the most useful to him.
He once almost took control of the Canadian government under the guise of Joshua Lord in an attempt to start his dominion of the world there. Aiding him in this was the Antiguard, which was really James Hudson. Hudson’s love for his wife Heather allowed him to stop the Master. When the Master realized that he would be going to prison, he faked his own death.
He appeared again, in a plot to rid the earth of 70% of its population. His primary plan was to release a compound into the atmosphere that would render all people sterile so that he could choose who would be the next generation. He also planned to release a global electromagnetic pulse to disarm all conventional weaponry to prevent retaliation and warfare.
The Master next appeared when Kang attempted to seize control of the Earth. The Master used his technology to protect major North American cities. His “Plodex wolves” captured leaders across North America and he explained his plan to them. The Avengers infiltrated the Master’s lair in an attempt to rescue the leaders and seize control of the the Plodex technology. Ms. Marvel, in battle with the Master, stabbed him with a piece of metal, apparently killing him.
