Quote1 Allow me to introduce myself; my name is Korg, I'm kind of like the leader in here. I'm made of rocks as you can see, but don't let that intimidate you. You don't need to be afraid unless you're made of scissors. Heh, just a little rock-paper-scissor joke for ya. Quote2
-- Korg src

Korg was a Kronan revolutionary on the planet Sakaar. After a failed attempt at a revolution, he was forced to become a gladiator in the Grandmaster's Contest of Champions.

Some time later, Korg came into contact with Thor, who had found himself stranded and enslaved on Sakaar after losing his hammer during a battle with Hela. Korg briefly asked if Thor would be interested in joining a second revolution that he had been planning, before the topic switched gears to the Grandmaster's champion, whom Thor was preparing to fight. Korg attempted to discourage him from facing the champion, stating all who fought him died.

During Thor's fight with the champion, revealed to be the Hulk, Korg was present on the sidelines to cheer Thor on.

Much later, when Thor had begun his plan to escape from Sakaar, Korg and the other slaves were freed from the Grandmaster's control and given weapons by Valkyrie. Korg lead the slaves in a new revolution, eventually coming across Loki who lead them to Asgard to aid Thor in his battle against Hela.

After Hela's defeat, Korg and the other slaves joined the Asgardians as they set off to find a new home. [1]
