John Harrison? This has to be the most bizarre misspelling of "Khan" yet.
Khan is his middle name. He's John K. Harrison

Re: New image released from Star Trek Into Darkness

From this frame of film I can only deduce that not only has JJ raped my childhood to death, but now dug up the corpse to rape it again.

DAMN YOU JJ!!!

This fits with Cumberbatch's insistence that if anyone knew who the villain was, they wouldn't be interested, and JJ going on a major campaign of producing buzz before it even gets out. I will find that source for you and back this up.

Also, it fits with why a Hispanic actor was initially desired, look at Harrison on Memory Alpha.

Exactly.
They originally wanted Benicio Del Toro (Puerto Rican) as the lead. He actually resembles the Ron Veto (Hawaiian) who played Harrison in the original series first season episodes. Check out the comparison:

Mhmm..., I have that sudden urge to watch The Dark Knight, Skyfall, and the Avengers.


Ever thought that it is the Gary Mitchell scenario but without Gary Mitchell?

There is a slight resemblance between Cumberbatch and Ron Veto. The way their hair is combed is very similar. Mean anything? Doubtful.

Or maybe a reference to John Harrison Surratt? That's right, the villain is actually Space Abraham Lincoln!

With all due respect, you're literally crazy if you think that the villain in Star Trek Into Darkness is based on a no-name extra from forty years ago.

Well Orci did say the character would be cannon in a interview. Also a interview over a year ago with either Orci and the other writer said that he would be from the first season of TOS. Ron Veto as Harrison starred in 13 episodes never appearing in the 3rd season.

I think everyone of us here is crazy! Each in our own unique special way. Hopefully the movie itself will be as entertaining as all this insane speculation.

Maybe John Harrison is the beginning of a viral marketing campaign? We have to join the dots etc
