Occupation: Plunderer

Affiliations: Reptile Men

EnemiesGolden People, Ka-Zar

Known Relatives: None

Aliases: None

Base of Operations: Savage Land;
formerly a spaceship in an unspecified region of space;
planet of origin unknown

First Appearance: Marvel Super-Heroes II#19 (March, 1969)

 

Powers/Abilities: Quor possessed advanced technology, including space ships and energy blasters. As his very life apparently depended on the power of the Anti-Metal, it may be that he was a robot of some sort. He demonstrated no special fighting abilities. He wore a suit of armor that apparently covered his entire body and may have afforded him some resistance to injury.

History:
(Marvel Super-Heroes II#19 (fb) - BTS) - Quor's spaceship crashed on Earth, landing in the Savage Land. Using his advanced technology and knowledge, he quickly convinced a tribe of Reptile Men that he was to lead them. Needing the Anti-Metal (Antarctic Vibranium) to power his ship, he sent the Reptile Men to raid nearby tribes, such as the Golden People.

 

 

(Marvel Super-Heroes II#19) - Months later, as Quor sent the Reptile Men out on another mission to obtain more Anti-Metal, a group of them encountered, ambushed, and overpowered Ka-Zar while they were in camouflage mode. Ka-Zar was recovered by the Golden People, then he made his way to Quor's lair, fought his way past Quor's guards, and attacked him. Quor mocked Ka-Zar as being puny, but after the first punch, Quor dropped the Anti-Metal capsule that was apparently the source of his power, and he faded quickly. He dropped to the ground after receiving a total of three punches (well, two punches and a kick), and giving none. Quor apparently fled.

    Ka-Zar drove off the Reptile Men, telling them that their leader was gone and his power was destroyed.

This was a real WTF story. To the best of my knowledge, none of the characters introduced in this story have shown their faces in another Marvel Comic.

Since they both operated in the Savage Land, and since their names sound the same, could Quor have perhaps been the sorcerer Khor in a suit of armor (to hide the injuries he sustained when the Golden Age Vision hurled him into the volcanic pit)? Maybe this whole Ka-Zar story was just an illusion created by Khor?
