Fully immersed in the new season of Marvel Snap, the new additions, plus variable cards, have aroused the curiosity of many players. Although the vast majority already know the characters of this new season focused on the Wild landthere are details that you surely either do not remember or have overlooked.
We invite you to learn more in depth, and in a few lines, everything you need to know as players of the Marvel card game and as a good fan of Marvel Comics of these emblematic characters, and incidentally get to know what their home is like.
Imagination has no limits when it comes to the Marvel Universe. Neither in its most modern and cinematographic version, the UCM, nor in the classic universe of comics. Taking advantage of Zabu’s inclusion in Marvel Snap, and regarding the variable cards with excellent illustrations, we are going to briefly review the origin and history of these two characters.
The home where they live is known as the Savage Land. It is a tropical reserve in the middle of Antarctica. A geographical anomaly difficult to explain. Incongruous? We have already told you that in La Casa de las ideas everything is possible.
Who is Zabu from Marvel Comics?
It stays that way thanks to the volcanoes and alien machinery placed there by its creators. It is home to a wide variety of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures, as well as several ancient human civilizations. For all of them, the passage of time and the modernities of today’s society do not exist..
Well, they hardly exist, since the continuous interventions of Marvel superheroes, and some villains too, have left their mark on this savage land.
But… Who is Ka-Zar and what role do they play in the Marvel Universe?
To know this sovereign protector, we must first know that of his inseparable friend and protector, Zabu. His story will determine the origin and future of this young human.
the character of Zabu was created by the writer and artist Jack Kirby and first appeared in ‘Uncanny X-Men’ #10 in 1965. It is the last Saber-toothed tiger I live in the Savage Land and on the planet. This species became extinct during the Pleistocene, when the Earth plunged into its last Ice Age..
In it almost all life on Earth was extinct, but a large number of prehistoric animals, including some saber-toothed tigers, survived extinction in the region known as the Savage Land and its heat. Alli Zabu grew up as a cub. And while he was still a tribe of natives exterminated the few tigers that were left alive, but the little cub escaped death.
It was adopted by a pack of wolvesBut after fighting and taking down the leader of the pack, Zabu was forced to grow up in solitude wandering the Savage Land, learning to fend for himself. And that’s where Kevin Plunder comes in.
A young boy, son of Lord Robert Plunder who was a well-known British nobleman and scientist. Convinced of the existence of a new element in nature, which he later revealed to be an isotope of VibraniumLord Plunder found himself in the Savage Land to his bewilderment and surprise.
Who is Ka-Zar from Marvel Comics?
Once he wanted to return to continue exploring those lands, he took his youngest son, Kevin. They were on the run from powerful agents who were after Lord Plunder’s discovery. In order to avoid them they fled to the Savage Land. What better place to flee and continue exploring than that discovery?
But the visit did not end as the good scientist expected. They were attacked by a species of gorilla men led by Maa-Gor, who was the one who ended up ending the Lord’s life and leaving the boy an orphan. The boy was found by Zabu, who took pity on him and soon took a liking to him. That affection turned into love and trust and the tiger proclaimed himself Kevin’s mentor and protector.
That’s where its name comes from. Given that Ka’Zarin the language of the natives of the Savage Land, means, “The son of the tiger«. Both became inseparable friends and companions, serving as protectors of their home against threats from the other world.
But long before this more evolved Ka’Zar, there was another one in the 1930s. It was created by a pulp writer, Bob Byrd. his name was David Rand and was one of the first characters chosen by martin goodman, Stan Lee’s cousin-in-law, when in 1936 he launched a series of comic magazines that later ended up giving the company’s name. We could say of Ka-Zar that he is one of the first superheroes in the history of Marvel Comics.
Later it was Lee who reformulated the character we know today. After the X-Patrol passed through his home, the character was officially added to the Marvel Universe. From now on, when we play Marvel Snap We will already have a better knowledge of the characters that are not helping our opponent win.
