He is Marvel’s version of Tarzan. Introduced in X-Men #10 (1965) by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Kevin Plunder is the son of Lord Robert Plunder, who discovered the Anti-Metal Vibranium in the Savage Land. After he returned home to find his wife had died, he hid the metal and gave his sons part of a key each. When people tried to find the anti-metal, he sent his eldest son into hiding and took Kevin to the Savage Land to protect him. The father was killed by savage Man-Apes, and they were about to kill the infant Kevin when he was saved by Zabu, the sabretooth tiger. Zabu would raise the infant and Kevin would become known as Ka-Zar, Lord of the Savage Land.
His first encounter with the outside world is when the X-men traveled to the Savage Land to investigate. He would later encounter many heroes and villains and would rarely leave his home land. At some point he would meet Shanna the She-Devil and the 2 would would eventually marry and have a son. He would also move to New York for a time and worked with Mockingbird for a while. He would later encounter his older brother, now the Plunderer, who wanted to take the anti-metal for himself. He would later join a few super-teams with one of the latest being a member of the Agents of Wakanda, where he would eventually be chosen as a Herald of Galactus.
Ka-Zar is a supporting character more than he has been a main character. He would receive a figure as part of the SDCC 2008 as part of a box set with with Shanna and Zabu.

- Does it need a remake?
- Yes. This needs to be remade with a much better body.
