History

Korea is a geographic area, civilization, and a former state situated on the Korean Peninsula in East Asia. It borders China to the west and Russia to the north, with Japan situated to the east. The Korean Peninsula is divided into two separate states, North Korea and South Korea. However, the name "Korea" is often used to refer to South Korea due to its greater economic significance and influence in the world.

Between 1950 and 1953, hostilities between the North Korean and South Korean regimes escalated into what has become colloquially known as the Korean War. After disputes arose regarding elections concerning the entirety of Korea, as well as escalating border conflicts at the 38th Parallel; the North Korean Army assaulted the South on June 25, 1950. The conflict was then expanded by the United States and the Soviet Union's involvement as part of a proxy war in the greater Cold War. One of the more well-known soldiers to serve in Korea was Captain Phillip Hunter, a green beret and son of famed war hero Benjamin Hunter.

In April of 1951, American Army Intelligence sent the Unknown Soldier (known as Arthur Wilson at the time) on an undercover mission to infiltrate a Chinese armor patrol and gain intelligence on their movements. On April 12th, the Chinese patrol engaged a U.S. army unit in armed combat and the Unknown Soldier was injured. He was taken to a village in Maengsan where he was nursed back to health by a young woman named Tsu Na. Tsu Na learned the truth about the Unknown Soldier and fell in love with him. She took advantage of his convalescence in the hopes of bearing his child. Tsu Na was unaware that the restorative formula that gave the Unknown Soldier his special abilities had also made him sterile. Once sufficiently healed from his injuries, the immortal Soldier returned to the United States. [1]

In 1987, the Unknown Soldier returned to Korea as part of an inter-agency job between Army Intelligence and the CIA to buy up stock in Teldron, Inc. in order to give the U.S. a strategic influence in North Korea. The Unknown Soldier learned that the CEO of Teldron, Inc. was Tsu Na, the woman who nursed him back to health in 1951. At this time, the Unknown Soldier also met Denice Wilson, Tsu Na's daughter. Both women believed that Denice was the Unknown Soldier's daughter, but this turned out to be untrue. During this mission, the Unknown Soldier's CIA rival Barry, blackmailed one of the Teldron, Inc. board members, Mister Jung, into voting in favor of U.S. interests in the company. Negotiations turned violent and through a series of circumstances, Denice Wilson was killed. She never learned that the Unknown Soldier was not her true father. [2]

In recent years, criminal mastermind Chang Tzu abducted Sasha Bordeaux of Checkmate, and Nightwing and Captain Boomerang (Owen Mercer) of the Outsiders and brought them to a facility in North Korea for experimentation. Batman assisted the Checkmate mission team with rescuing the heroes from Chang Tzu's lab. This incident resulted in Nightwing quitting the Outsiders, and handing the reigns of leadership to the group's original founder, his former mentor, Batman.

Other Realities

Earth-Smallville: On October 6th, 1989, Queen Industries CEO Robert Queen and his wife Laura are killed in a plane crash en route to Seoul, Korea. Some suspect that Lionel Luthor may have engineered their deaths in an effort to eliminate his fellow members of the Veritas group. Their son Oliver, will grow up to become the masked vigilante Green Arrow.

Earth-TCM: In the continuity of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre titles, Hewitt family patriarch Charlie Hewitt was a soldier who had been serving in the U.S. armed forces stationed in Korea. In the winter of 1953, Hewitt was captured by a Korean officer named Sergeant Chow and taken to a POW camp. Chow forced Hewitt to look after another POW who had been injured during the fighting. Seeing the man as sick and weak, Hewitt decided that it would be better to silence him, so he suffocated him in the middle of the night. The following day, Hewitt was moved to a transit camp in the mountains. Placed in a dungeon, he was paired off with another injured G.I. The enlisted man died of his own injuries, and Hewitt watched in horror as NKPA officers dragged the body into a slaughterhouse where it was butchered and (presumably) cooked. What remains were left behind were thrown into a bucket and tossed into Hewitt's cell. Starving, he had little choice but to eat what was provided for him. He kept one of the discarded human bones and sharpened the end of it. When Sergeant Chow entered his cell one morning to inspect him, Hewitt stabbed him in the chest with the bone. He then took Chow's rifle and shot his way to freedom. The experience gave Hewitt not only a newfound inner strength, but a grisly appetite for human flesh. [3]

Points of Interest

North Korea

North Korea is the commonly used short form name for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (or DPRK), a state located in East Asia, in the northern half of the Korean Peninsula, with its capital in the city of Pyongyang. To the south, separated by the Korean Demilitarized Zone, lies South Korea, with which it formed one nation until division following World War II. At its northern Amnok River border are China and, separated by the Tumen River in the extreme north-east, Russia. North Korea is widely considered to be a Stalinist dictatorship. The country's government styles itself as following the Juche ideology of self reliance, developed by Kim Il-sung, the country's former leader. Succeeding Kim Il-sung was Kim Jong-il, the late president Kim Il-sung's son.

South Korea

South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea and often referred to as Korea is a presidential republic in East Asia, occupying the southern half of the Korean Peninsula. Also known as the "Land of the Morning Calm", it is neighbored by China to the west, Japan to the east and North Korea to the north. South Korea's capital and largest city is Seoul, the second largest metropolitan city in the world. Korea has a history of 5,000 years and is one of the oldest civilizations in the world.

Seoul
Seoul is the capital and largest city of South Korea. With over ten million people, Seoul is one of the world's largest cities. It is also the world's second largest metropolitan area, the Seoul National Capital Area - which includes the major port city of Incheon and satellite towns in Gyeonggi-do, having almost 23 million inhabitants. Seong Barclay was born in Seoul, South Korea. As an adult, she gained possession of a hi-tech armor developed by her father and became the super-hero known as Mystek. As Mystek, Seong briefly served as a member of the Justice League Task Force. She apparently died after being sucked out into space en route to the trial of the hybrid super-villain L-Ron/Despero.

The Korean Unification Flag

Korea is a country in Northeastern Asia situated on the Korean Peninsula on Earth.

Korea used to be divided into two countries, North Korea and South Korea. This division is not only marked by a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), but a river and hundreds of unknown land mines. During the early 20th Century, Japan took over Korea and held it until 1945, when Korea achieved independence. Then from 1950-53 there was a war called the Korean war in which the Communist North Koreans and Chinese, backed by the Soviet Union, fought the UN, which included the South Koreans. In 1950, the UN, led by American General Douglas MacArthur, was off to a good start and took over nearly the whole of the Korean Peninsula, but in 1951 was terribly beaten back and pushed into a small corner of South Korea. In 1953, the UN got the upper hand when the President of the United States of America forced China to stop fighting by threatening to use the Atomic bomb. Without Chinese aid, North Korea was weak and, despite USSR aid, the UN forces pushed to Pyongyang. It is speculated that the two countries have came back to form Korea once again. Their capitals are Pyongyang (Northern Korea) and Seoul (Southern Korea). Korea has always been a research powerhouse due to its size and location. It is home to many provinces including the Kyonggi Province.
