* A few villains from MarvelComics have their origins here:
** ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}} was born in Aqaba thousands of years ago and taken in by a desert tribe with rather harsh SocialDarwinist beliefs. It was also here that he (of course) picked up technology from Marvel's resident AncientAstronauts, the Celestials.
** Kang, ConquerorFromTheFuture, spent a good deal of time in ancient Egypt as pharaoh Rama-Tut. In fact, he went back specifically in an attempt to recruit Apocalypse.
** The Sphinx was a court wizard to Rameses II until he was fired after a certain Hebrew mystic showed him up. Then he wandered into the desert and found a magic stone that made him immortal.

Venturing through this country, O Bold Troper, you will likely find merchants from faraway lands, wily thieves, ill-tempered camels, and [[AmbiguouslyBrown olive-skinned]] seductresses with braided wigs and ''kohl''-painted eyes. Also home to fanatical bald priests in lapis collars and leopard-skin robes, who usually wind up being turned into mummies after calling down the wrath of the gods upon their heads (usually for getting involved with the aforementioned beautiful olive-skinned ''kohl''-painted seductresses in some way). Wretched slaves labour to build pyramids in the scorching sun beneath the whips of merciless overseers... despite the fact that the great monuments were actually built by paid labourers with their own guilds.
