The Abandoned An’ Forsaked – Who Are the Global Peace Agency?

Every week, we will be examining comic book stories and ideas that were not only abandoned, but also had the stories/plots specifically “overturned” by a later writer (as if they were a legal precedent). Click here for an archive of all the previous editions of The Abandoned An’ Forsaked. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com if you have any suggestions for future editions of this feature.

Today we look at a notable OMAC retcon by Jim Starlin…

In Jack Kirby’s OMAC #1, we learn about the Global Peace Agency, who created OMAC…




In #3, we see them again…


Years after the series ended prematurely after less than ten issues, Jim Starlin revived the feature as a back-up in Warlord during the early 1980s. Along with the new strip came a new origin for the Global Peace Agency, abandoning and forsaking the old one (I like that Starlin even flat-out CALL it a new origin)….





Kind of an odd change, if you ask me.
