Ra'ktar is the leader of the Molans, a Subterranean race that reside from deep, beneath Subterranea. Ra'ktar, one day, came to the level of Subterranea to conquer and usurp the throne from the Mole Man. Mayor Jameson was brought to Subterranea, by the Moloids. He was then captured by the Molans and he refused to kneel before Ra'ktar, the new the Molan king of Subterannea. This angered Ra'ktar and Jameson was taken away, unaware of what was happening because Molans speak in runes.

When Jameson asked why he was brought here, Mole Man said that the Molans came up from the uber-depths to take Subterannea. The Moloids kidnapped him looking for help from New York's ruler. And by refusing to kneel to Ra'ktar, they took it as a challenge to take his throne, and now they must do battle.

They are brought to Ra'ktar, who forged his weapon, the King Blade, from hard stone. Before he could battle Jameson, Spider-Man and Red Hulk came to his aid. Red Hulk challenged Ra'ktar as Jameson's champion, but he was quickly cut down by the King Blade and stabbed through the chest.

Spider-Man fought Ra'ktar next but was given a small piece of rock to fight with. Spider-Man fashioned the rock into a weapon by attaching it to a line of webbing. He then spun it around. Spider-Man managed to slice away at Ra'ktar's armor, exposing his lower body and humiliating him in front of his army, which was equivalent to defeating him. With Ra'ktar defeated, Spider-Man was able to work out a peace treaty with the Molans, ending their invasion and returning Mole Man to his throne.[1]


Ra'ktar possesses superhuman strength, durability and agility. He was adapted to subterranean living, possessing infra-red vision and likely increased retinal rods, enhancing his vision in low light but also making him more sensitive to sudden bright lights. He could function well in low oxygen environments (including thick smoke) as well as in extremes of heat or cold.
