First AppearanceMicronauts I#26/2 (February, 1981);
    (identified) All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z#7 (July, 2006)

Powers/Abilities: The Qor did not demonstrate any superhuman abilities or technology. Perhaps they have enhanced strength and/or enhanced olfactory senses and/or night vision, but that's just extrapolation based on a vaguely bestial appearance.

Traits: The Qor are/were among the benevolent races of the Microverse, associated with the people of Homeworld and other planets against the tyranny of Baron Karza.

    Zoot appeared to have a straight sabre-like sword tucked into the back of his belt.

Type: Bilaterally symmetric humanoid bipeds
Eyes
: Two (on head; dark, likely brown or black irides)
Fingers
: Four (plus opposing thumb)
Toes
: Unrevealed (five is likely, just not confirmed
Skin color: Light blue
Average height: Unrevealed (the perspective was a little odd in the two picture showing Zoot, but 6' to 6'2" seems about right)
Distinguishing Features: Although Zoot's face seemed perhaps bestial, he has wild hair and a beard with no mustache. There's really nothing clearly different than human than his blue skin. No claws or fangs...

History:
(
Micronauts I#26/2: Tales of the Microverse (fb) - BTS) - Shortly after Karza overtook Argon as his host body, Princess Mari (aka Marionette) returned to Homeworld, and Zoot was asked to travel to Homeworld for a meeting of the Planetary Council. Zoot swiftly made the journey to Homeworld.

(Micronauts I#26/2: Tales of the Microverse - BTS) <48 Xats after Mari's return to Homeworld> - The Planetary Council gathered on Homeworld to discuss how they might oppose Karza. 

    Zoot remained silent as Mari discussed how Karza, mind-merged with Argon, had journeyed through the Spacewall to Earth, and as Esmera, Pharoid, and Gra'hm noted how races associated with Karza had grown more bold and aggressive.

(Micronauts I#26/2: Tales of the Microverse - BTS) - When Mari sought to bypass Karza's control of the Enigma Force by contacting the Shadow Priests directly, Zoot and the others witnessed with shock and horror that Karza held the Time Travelers in bondage.

(Micronauts I#27-28) - Zoot and/or other members of the Qor may or may not have been involved in the efforts to oppose Karza's forces in the Microverse and/or on Earth.

CommentsCreated by Bill Mantlo, Pat Broderick, and Armando Gil.

    B'zzk is specifically the name for their planet, but I'm including it as the name for the race for the purpose of this profile. If another name for the race is revealed, I'll revise the profile.

    Icch is the only native of B'zzk pictured, and he was identified in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe

Note: The images in the sub-profile are the same as the images in the main profile, as Zoot is the only known Qor pictured, and these are the only two images of him.

     Zoot could get his own profile if someone wanted to re-format everything into a character profile. I may do that at some point. But not today...
