History: (What If? I#34/17) - After waking one day in the Savage Land, Ka-Zar realized that he had grown bored with the life of a savage. He then decided to visit New York to get electrolysis in order to save himself from shaving with a dull stone for the rest of his life. On his way out of the doctor's office, Ka-Zar noticed a matchbook about a mail-order public accountant course. A few weeks later, Ka-Zar was proud to find that he had his diploma and certification as a public accountant.

Comments: Created by Brent Anderson.

This reality diverged when Ka-Zar got electrolysis.

Ka-Zar was the same as his Earth-616 counterpart up until he grew tired of the life of a savage. He then decided to get electrolysis to save himself from shaving and found a matchbook with an ad for mail-order public accountant certification. Weeks later, Ka-Zar had his diploma and a new tie.

Zabu, like his Earth-616 counterpart, was Ka-Zar's sabretooth tiger pet and companion. During the course of Ka-Zar's public accountant course, Zabu continuously thought that Ka-Zar was not too bright.
