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

by  in Comic News Comment

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.
