History

Imperial Sakaarans in Skaar: Son of Hulk v1 #14.

Sakaar

At some unknown point, Sakaar was visited by a race of humanoids known as the Shadow People who gathered with them the Oldpower and came to settle on the planet. They were responsible for creating the Great Portal that randomly connected remote regions of space to the world thus bringing countless beings to Sakaar. It was the Shadow People who also spoke of a prophecy of the Sakaarson who would unite the planet. (Incredible Hulk v2 #101)

Two hundred years ago, the Dust Plague swept Sakaar and afflicted the Shadow People causing some tribes to revert to mysticism under the Saka Priests which drove out the Clear-Eyed Shadow. Another tribe withdrew to the Vanishing Tower where they spent their days preserving science and knowledge of their ancestors. (Skaar: Son of Hulk v1 #6) Many years ago, the planet came under attack from a race of beings known as the Spikes. These creatures released spores that sought out other life forms and infected them in order to spread their kind. (Incredible Hulk v2 #98) Around this time, Ol-Sahm sought to save the people of the planet and journeyed to the Saka temple containing one of the Shadow People's stone starships. He sought a champion to help save Sakaar and used the technology of the ship to open a portal in the hope of summoning a hero to save the world. Thus, the prophecy of the Sakaarson began to form that spoke of a prophecised saviour that would come in many guises. Among the first beings to come through the portal was the robotic Death's Head Guards. (Skaar: Son of Hulk v1 #6)

For years, the Red King was noted to had bombed the lands of Fillia where the rich farmland was burnt to become a barren sands. (Incredible Hulk v1 #709)

This led to widescale revolt on the planet as the Sakaaran Natives began to rally under the banner of the Green Scar and acted against the Imperials. Similarly, slaves began to revolt within the arenas even within Crown City causing the emperor to snap and kill them. (Incredible Hulk v2 #97)

During this time, the Warbound came to meet the elders of the Spikes where they learnt the true origins of the seeming parasitic race. The creatures were actually peaceful beings that had feasted on cosmic energy in deep space but after being trapped on Sakaar their spawn were driven insane with hunger and targeted all organic life. These elders used their influence to still their spawns rampage and asked for the Green Scars aid to survive with him agreeing. This allowed him to arrive at Crown City unimpaired and a confrontation with the Red King who after an initial defeat intended to detonate the mantle in order to destroy the planet rather than lose. The Green Scar managed to stop the cataclysmic chain reaction and the Red King was seemingly killed by a Wildebot. With his death, the Green Scar was hailed as the saviour of Sakaar and declared its new ruler. (Incredible Hulk v2 #102) The shuttle that brought Hulk to Sakaar later suffered an overload to its warp creator causing it to detonate. This resulted in the death of hundreds of Sakaarans as the chain reaction damaged the mantle thus causing worldwide cataclysm killing many more around the world. The detonation also seemingly killed Caiera the Oldstrong who was the wife of the Hulk. This led to the Hulk vowing revenge against his former comrades in the Illuminati on Earth and had the Warbound prepare to wage war against his homeworld of Earth. (Incredible Hulk v2 #105)

With the Hulk gone, chaos erupted across Sakaar where thousands of murderous figures arose in order to claim the throne of the Red King. (Incredible Hulk v1 #709) The Son of Hulk then took the Imperian forces that followed the Red King into laying siege to the Fillian capital of It'Jam in an effort to kill Axeman Bone. The Imperial Sakaaran warlord decided to unleash the ancient dragons that once resided on the world in order to defeat his foe. (Skaar: Son of Hulk v1 #8) This battle only ended when the Hulk apparently emerged to put a sop to the infighting between the factions. (Skaar: Son of Hulk v1 #9) In reality, this was a construct constructed by the spirit of Caiera in an effort to stop further bloodshed and to humble her son. At this time, the World Devourer Galactus was heading towards Sakaar in order to consume its Old Power thus sating its hunger for a thousand years. Skaar, however, intended to oppose the cosmic being and was willing to sacrifice thousands to achieve that goal. Upon seeing her son's selfish actions, Caiera decided to banish him from the world and allowed Sakaar to be consumed by Galactus. (Skaar: Son of Hulk v1 #10) She came to use the last of her power to hold the World Devourer at bay long enough for a number of Sakaarans to flee on-board ancient stoneships where they became the only survivors of their world. (Skaar: Son of Hulk v1 #11) They came to fall under the leadership of Hiro-Kala who was recognised as the Sakaarson due to being the other son of Hulk and Caiera. Thus, he retained the Old Power allowing him to control the Shadow stone ship that took the last Sakaarans to a new world. He led them to Giausar that was formerly visited by the Shadow People but abandoned due to its savage native population. Upon arriving, the native species attempted to confiscate the stone ship but Hiro-Kala resisted their efforts. (Skaar: Son of Hulk v1 #13)

Though destroyed, the re-emergence of the Time Stone came to restore the planet of Sakaar thus bringing it back into existence. (Incredible Hulk v1 #713) Amadeus Cho came to isolate himself on a satellite after he was losing control of his Hulk persona after gaining the power. Whilst on the satellite, he received a distress signal and whilst investigating he was transported through a wormhole to the restored Sakaar. He crashed on the surface where people of the Doka'abi Clan attempted to get his aid to overthrow the Warlord that had dominated the planet. (Incredible Hulk v1 #709)
