Powers: Gzoom possesses vast, superhuman speed. Traveling purely by physical locomotion, he is one of the fastest beings in the entire galaxy. His body and mind are adapted to travel at great speeds, although his top speed is undefined. When threatened, he will retract his head and limbs are head into his carapace for additional protection. He also seemed to be able to generate energy from his inside his carapace, which he could release out of each of his limb holes. This may have been used for additional speed or travel when not using a surface for propulsion.

History: Gzoom presumably qualified for the Galactic Marathon, a competition organized by the Elder known as the Runner, by winning a race, possibly as the fastest on his planet. During the marathon, Gzoom started out in second to last place, but was then assaulted from behind by Fooferah using a stun drum, which cost him his position in the race.

However, Fooferah's cheating was discovered by the judges of the marathon, and the entire race was declared invalid. It is unknown if Gzoom participated in another race, and if so how he performed.

Comments: Created by Mark Gruenwald, Peter Sanderson, and John Heebink.
