The Urk wiki last edited by doughnut42 on 10/30/14 07:18PM View full history


Not much is known of the little mischievous critter named Urk, except he loves to chew on wires. The only readable word Urk has ever said is "Urk." He has also spoken an unreadable alien language, though.


Urk was created by Keith Giffen and Paul Levitz.

Years later Urk appeared with many other Legion allies and former members to help the Legion of Superheroes fight Superboy Prime in Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds. Urk has most recently appeared again with the Legion Academy, where he still remains a background character whose major characteristic is a hunger for electronics.
