At the end of Marvel Comics #1000 we got a glimpse of the future. The return of Michael Korvac, alongside the Eternity Mask, the Enclave, the Three XXXs, the Masked Raider and more. We were meant to see more Masked Raider in 2020, but we just got a glimpse in Incoming. But what about Korvac?

TONY HAS COMPANY… AND HIS NAME IS KORVAC!
Tony Stark continues to roughly dismantle the fancy, shiny and sophisticated ways of his past… but the world doesn't seem quite convinced that he's changed his rich guy tune.
