Fictional character biography
Ron-Karr appears in only one panel in his first appearance. He is a native of the planet Neptune, who has the ability to flatten his body. His application for Legion membership is rejected, as his power is considered "too unusual." His name is spelled "Ronn Kar" for this appearance only.
He joins the Legion of Super-Villains during the five part war between the two Legions in the 1980s Legion of Super-Heroes series. He was not that helpful.
Powers and abilities
Ron-Karr has the ability to make his body extremely flat. He still maintains the ability to move and breathe while in this form.[volume & issue needed]
In other media
Ron-Karr appears in the animated Legion of Super-Heroes television series, voiced by Shawn Harrison. He is seen as a member of Lightning Lord's Light Speed Vanguard group. Unlike his comic book version, the animated Ron-Karr is a shapeshifter and even rivaled Chameleon Boy in "The Man from the Edge of Tomorrow" Pt. 2. While under the employ of Imperiex in the episode "Who Am I?", he was tricked into believing he was Superman which made him question why he was a villain. He wound up betraying Imperiex and helped the Legion stop the missiles headed for Chameleon Boy's home planet Durla.
