Recently, the Ministry found a need for Korvus, and sent him with the sword after the X-Men who'd came after Vulcan. They also planted a chip in his brain so he couldn't harm any Shi'ar. He was only after Rachel, because she had been "touched" by the Phoenix, but she then destroyed the chip in his brain, and he joined the X-Men on their quest.
More recently, he became a Starjammer, along with Havok, Polaris, Marvel Girl, Ch'od and Raza. They attempted to dethrone Emporer Vulcan but were unsucessful, and only Korvus and Rachel escaped. The rest were captured by Emporer Vulcan.In recent years, Imperial Vice Chancellor K'tor killed Rook'shir's last known decedents, sparing the half-Shi'ar child Korvus in case K'tor needed someone to wield the Blade of the Phoenix someday.
