KANGAROO the CONQUEROR
Real Name: Unrevealed, possibly Kangaroo
Identity/Class: Alternate reality (Larval Earth / Earth-8311) "anthrotoon," technology user
Group Membership: Possibly the Council of Cross-Time Kangs
Enemies: Scavengers (Black Panda, Pigeon, Quacksilver, Scarlet Pooch, Squawkeye)
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: Unrevealed;
last seen imprisoned on Larval Earth / Earth-8311;
formerly 30th century Earth (which Earth, though, who knows?)
First Appearance: Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham#15/2 (May, 1987)
Powers/Abilities: Kangaroo has the resources to conquer and enslave an entire time period, but he did not demonstrate any abilities in his brief appearance. He presumably had time travel capacity in one form or another. He utilized Ultrog as a weapon and presumably had access to a variety of advanced weaponry.
Eyes: Appeared to have no visible irises
(Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham#15/2 (fb) - BTS) - Kangaroo searched the centuries for a queen.
(Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham#15/2 (fb) - BTS) - Kangaroo enslaved the 30th century.
(Peter Porker, the Spectacular Spider-Ham#15/2) - Seeking to improve their reputation by defeating a major criminal, the Scavengers traveled forward in time and confronted Kangaroo as he sat on his throne. Kangaroo was instantly smitten with the Scarlet Pooch and sought to make her his queen, and he dispatched his servant Ultrog to kill the other Scavengers. Ultrog instead punched out Kangaroo and took the Scarlet Pooch for himself. After the Scavengers destroyed Ultrog, the Scavengers tied Kangaroo to their time machine and brought him back to their present day and showed him off to the press. Despite their wishes, the Gossip Rag Quarterly noted only that Kangaroo had made a play for the Scarlet Pooch but that she had dumped him and done the town with a gorilla.
Comments: Created by Mike Mellor.
Presumably the Scavengers have some past experience with Kangaroo.
Kangaroo could be part of the Council of Cross-Time Kangs, perhaps having usurped, discovered, or copied the technology of a divergent Kang. Or perhaps Kangaroo has a similar history as Kang, in some unspecified future (possibly that of Earth-8311).
It's also anyone's guess whether the 30th century reality that Kangaroo enslaved was Earth-8311 or another, similar reality.
Profile by Snood.
Kang was intended as a parody of
the robot gorilla
Ultrog was super-strong and impervious to most forms of attack--not giant bombs, though.
From his 30th century base, Kangaroo was confronted by the time-traveling Scavengers. Kangaroo sought to make the Scarlet Pooch his queen, and he dispatched his servant Ultrog to kill the other Scavengers. Ultrog, unphased by the Scavengers' attacks, instead punched out Kangaroo and took the Scarlet Pooch for himself. He carried her to the top of a skyscraper and tried to make kissy with her, but the Black Panda distracted Ultrog with a steel-plated banana. Ultrog snatched the 'nanner up and dropped the Pooch, but upon unpeeling it he found out that the banana was actually a bomb, which then blew up, destroying him.
