* CompleteMonster: The original iteration of [[AristocratsAreEvil Baron Karza]] [[labelnote:pronounced]]"Kartha"[[/labelnote]] is the [[BigBad truly monstrous dictator]] who has terrorized the Microverse for 1,000 years, and is the ArchEnemy of the Micronauts. After a failed coup against the Homeworld royal family, Karza [[UngratefulBastard butchered the very monastery that saved him from his exile]], using their secrets to return to Homeworld and institute his own tyrannical rule. Karza's first act after massacring the royal family was to create the Body Banks, a pit of machine horrors that he uses to butcher innocents, harvest their organs and body parts, then use said harvested parts to make himself and his followers nigh immortal, using the downtrodden of Homeworld and prisoners of war as subjects for the horrifying Banks. Taking sick glee in mass murder and genocide, Karza [[EarthShatteringKaboom razes entire planets]], sacrifices millions of people at a time to his Body Banks, and [[CruelAndUnusualDeath boils an entire race of sea people alive]]. To keep his forces ever-growing, Karza locks hundreds of women in [[MedicalRapeAndImpregnate impregnation machines]], forcing them to give birth to thousands of babies Karza raises into his soldiers, the process [[DrivenToMadness driving the women insane]]. Though seemingly dying numerous times, often after trying to [[TakingYouWithMe take countless innocents down with him]], Karza always returns to continue his atrocities, and, in his final bout, Karza butchers the entire population of Homeworld, turning them into agony-stricken monstrosities solely to torment the Micronauts, and later attempts to doom the entire Microverse in one final attempt to save his own skin. Karza's crimes [[KickTheDog not limited to wide-scale]], he also notably ruins the life of a young prince by framing him for attempted murder of his love, then by tricking his best friend into sacrificing her own legs to save the prince's love, all for his own amusement. A [[CardCarryingVillain self-proclaimed "artist of atrocities"]] whose [[ForTheEvulz only desire in life]] is to be the most wicked being he can, Baron Karza was a shockingly vile villain for Marvel Comics in [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks the era he originated from]].

* CompleteMonster: The original iteration of [[BigBad Baron Karza]] [[labelnote:pronounced]]"Kartha"[[/labelnote]] is the truly monstrous, psychopathic dictator who has terrorized the Microverse for 1,000 years, and is the ArchEnemy of the Micronauts. Originally a lowly scientist for the royal family of Homeworld, Karza was left for dead after failing to instigate a coup, and, when revived by a powerful and kind cult, [[UngratefulBastard whose secrets he stole for himself before forcibly transmuting them into his personal army]], Karza returned to Homeworld to institute his own tyrannical rule. Karza's first act after massacring the royal family was to create the Body Banks, a pit of machine horrors that he uses to butcher innocents, harvest their organs and body parts, then use said harvested parts to make himself and his followers nigh immortal. The downtrodden of Homeworld are taken to the Body Banks when they run out of money to pay Karza's taxes, and, though many of said poor citizens attempt to start a resistance, Karza wastes no time in brutally putting down any and all rebellion to his rule, either through gunfire or by feeding them to his Body Banks. Taking sick glee in mass murder and genocide, Karza [[EarthShatteringKaboom razes entire planets]], sacrifices millions of people at a time to his Body Banks, and uses a solar cannon to [[CruelAndUnusualDeath boil an entire race of sea people alive]], cackling all the way. To keep his forces ever-growing, Karza locks hundreds of women in impregnation machines, forcing them to give birth to thousands of babies Karza raises into sociopathic fanatics loyal to him, the process [[DrivenToMadness driving the women insane]]. Though seemingly dying numerous times, often after trying to [[TakingYouWithMe take countless innocents down with him]], Karza always returns, stronger than ever, to continue his atrocities. In the end, Karza butchers the entire population of Homeworld, turning them into agony-stricken monstrosities, solely to torment the Micronauts, and later attempts to doom the entire Microverse in one final attempt to save his own skin. A [[CardCarryingVillain self-proclaimed "artist of atrocities"]] whose [[ForTheEvulz only desire in life]] is to be the most wicked being he can, even if this means rejecting the powers of a god which would require him to do good, Baron Karza was a shockingly vile villain for Marvel Comics, with nothing remotely sympathetic or redeeming about him.

*** The Microverse was used to explain TheWasp's return from apparent death, recently. When she realized she was about to die, she reflexively shrank down further than she ever had before, popping out in the Microverse. It's a [[AuthorsSavingThrow better explanation]] than most [[ComicBookDeath comic book resurrections, honestly.]]

* {{Homage}}: In the mythology of the Microverse, some of the prominent figures associated with Wayfinder were named after Hindu gods such as Kali, Agni, and Yama. Additionally, Wayfinder and his people also for a time settled on Earth, probably in what is now India before they were again displaced by whirldemons. The Microversian written language resembles sanskrit, as seen by stone tablets unearthed in India in issue #31. The idea of AncientAstronauts inspiring Hindu mythology is very similar to Roger Zelazny's ''LordOfLight.''
