Aside from the comic book series, Ka-Zar has also appeared in various forms of media such as cartoons and video games. His status as a pulp-adventure-style hero and his deep connection to one of Marvel's most unique settings have made him a beloved and enduring character in the Marvel Universe.{{Categories}}
