In another bout of good news for Marvel fans, Marvel Cinematic Universe is all set to have a blast at the box office with the most awaited Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3. The movie is directed by the famous filmmaker James Gunn, who also helmed the previous two installments. First trailer of this long awaited threequel gave goosebumps to fans, who are going to watch a new comic character in this movie.
Marvel gave us glimpses of Chukwudi Iwuji’s the High Evolutionary. Fans are expecting his character to be extremely powerful and complex. After Eternity in Thor: Love and Thunder and Living Tribunal in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, this is the third cosmic character to enter MCU’s ongoing phase.
The High Evolutionary in the Marvel Universe
The High Evolutionary is also known as Herbert Edgar Wyndham. After post-credit scenes of Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 fans thought of Adam Warlock to be the highlight in the upcoming movie, but now it is confirmed that the High Evolutionary is going to be the bad guy in the upcoming movie. This character was first introduced by Stan Lee in The Mighty Thor #134 comic book. Chukwudi Iwuji described his character as,
“narcissistic, sociopathic, but very charming. I couldn’t have thought of a better character that uses the skill set better to join the MCU with. Because there’s something very Shakespearean about him, there’s something very emotionally dark about him, and he’s a lot of fun on top of all that.”
Instead of just being a cosmic menace, the High Evolutionary is truly connected to almost every aspect of the Marvel Universe.
What superpowers does High Evolutionary have?
High Evolutionary is the one who created Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver with the help of genetic science. The experiment that he truly intended to execute on the Hulk, whom he caught with the intention of developing him into a flawless lifeform one million years more evolved than existing humans, led to the creation of High Evolutionary’s own super-evolution. His virtual knowledge and intellectual abilities are incomparable.
This guy is a scientist who has evolved his brain to its full potential. His other powers include telepathy, telekinesis, superhuman strength, durability, etc. The genius scientist can even manipulate reality on an atomic level. He wears an exoskeleton suit which protects him during battle.
As Guardians have reassembled to protect the galaxy once again, their fight with High Evolutionary is going to be exciting to watch.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3 is set for release on May 5, 2023.
