Powers and Abilities

This is an average Snark soldier ; he’s just a grunt. His weapon is probably imported – while the Snarks are pretty hi-tech (they even have developed hyperspace drives), they look for the best weapons available and tend to import them (why the guns perform so poorly in the comics is left to the reader’s ingenuity).


The Znˆrx, nicknamed the Snark, are a reptilian race. Their homeworld is nicknamed Snark World it is roughly earth like, but seems deserted, with Snarks living underground.

The most important cultural trait of the Snarks is their Queen Mother. The Snarks are governed by an Emperor, who is polygamous ; each of his wives, or Queen Mother, is the head of an extensive clan. Each can have a single High Snark (a bigger, tougher offshoot of Snark – add 1 to STR and BODY) offspring – when the Emperor dies, the Queen Mother and their clan go to war against each other for the right to crown a new Emperor.

These highly devastating and cyclical Snark Wars are pretty much considered a natural hazard in their galactic sector, as they tend to impact on neighboring planets.

First contact with humanity happened in the Marvel Universe when the most vicious Queen Mother, named Maraud, sent a military force to capture an experimental matter/antimatter converter, whose prototype had been developed on Earth by professor James Power. The mission not only failed, but resulted in the creation of the Power Pack superhuman kids, who ultimately were the downfall of Maraud.


Snarks are 2,45m high from head to toes, and 3,35m long from snout to tail ; they weigh about 180kg.


Snark soldiers are no more evil than human soldiers. While they seem clumsy in the Power Pack comics, it is probably more a matter of a big, heavy thing trying to catch a small, fast thing (i.e., Growth vs. Shrink).

DC Universe History

In the DCU, the Snark Wars would have undoubtedly caught the attention of the GLC, but Snark foot soldiers can be used as mercs for any ET villain you choose to use or design.
