Powers and Abilities

They can eat gold. Wow.


They appeared in Batman vs. “The Intergalactic Gold Eaters” which appeared in Action #493. They are in Fort Knox, and prepare to eat the gold, despite a guard telling them not to. Batman hears about it, and shows up with some Twinkies, which they can eat instead.

“Another step towards intergalactic understanding,” comments Batman.


There are two of them. They look perfectly human except for their green skin, scales, and lizard-like heads. Their outfits consist of a dark green shirt, briefs, gun holster, and boots.


They are sorry to have to eat all the gold in Fort Knox, but they require gold in order to live.
