History

Kevin Plunder’s father led an exhibition to Antarctica for a rare element, when they found the jungles of the Savage Land where this “Anti-Metal,” (later known as Vibranium,) was found. When ruthless agents tried steal Lord Plunder’s stash of Vibranium, he seperated his two children and left for refuge in the Savage Land with his eldest, Kevin. Plunder was killed, however, by natives of the Man-Ape tribe, although Kevin was saved by the sudden appearance of Zabu. Zabu took Kevin with him into the Land of Mists, and the Man-Apes called him Ka-zar, which means “Son of the Tiger.” Ka-zar grew up in the Land of Mists alongside Zabu, who taught him how to survive.

Ka-zar acted like a “savage,” until after his first encounter with his adult brother, who called himself Parnival the Plunderer and faught Ka-zar for his half of their father’s “key,” that would serve as a catalyst to activate the Vibranium’s properties of “melting” other metals in its area. Ka-zar eventually regained his knowledge of his British upbringing, acting like “an irreverent Americanized adventurer.” Staying in the Savage Land as its self-proclaimed protector, Ka-zar had many adventures and teamed up with many super heroes. He later met and married Shanna the She-devil, and more recently, they had a son, Matthew.

Ka-zar and Shanna only left the Savage Land for a brief time when the giant alien Terminus succeeded in destroying the Savage Land, being rescued by the Avengers. They wandered the world, but later found the Savage Land regenerating itself, and returned. They were on hand to aid such friends as the X-men (and even Magneto, who defeated Zaladane,) and the Sub-mariner (who faught various corporations from excavating the Land’s resources.) More recently, Ka-zar and Shanna left the Savage Land again to pursue Parnival the Plunderer, who stole alien technology that enabled the Savage Land to maintain its enviornment, but ultimately defeated Parnival and his master, the cosmic titan Thanos.

Ka-zar remains protector of the Savage Land.
