    Going Nuclear

    The enigmatic "king" of the Lizard League rules a criminal organization of thousands of blindly obedient followers and henchmen. The fervent loyalty and fanatical obedience of his underlings clearly demonstrate the extent of King Lizard's influence and charismatic authority. The hierarchal nature of the league is characterized by a highly competitive pecking order, in which higher-ranking individuals dominate those of lower social rank. A single highly dominant individual, the king, commands all others in the group. Each King Lizard gains his power after the defeat, death, or incapacitation of the previous King Lizard. Because the previous king failed, the current king always believes that he is the most rightful there has ever been, and all the others were simply minor footnotes in preparation for the one true king. King Lizards have a high mortality rate, so lower-status lizard men adopt subservient roles to advertise that they are not a threat to the king. As long as the king is successful, the Lizard League will provide endless minions to do his work. Once the king shows signs of defeat, most lizard men stop fighting, but a few, those who consider themselves able to become the next alpha male, will turn on each other. The havoc and mayhem created by the League in the course of their criminal activities regularly bring them into conflict with government authorities and the superhuman community. Like insects (the dominant life form on earth), the League succeeds by sheer force of numbers and an endless variety of approaches.

    Early in Invincible's career, he faced off against King Lizard and his league, but with Atom Eve's help, their plans were thwarted. King Lizard ended up in jail but secretly directed the Lizard League. Months later when Doc Seismic attacked the city. The Guardians of the Globe fought off against him but accidentally broke open the prison and King Lizard ran with many of the other fleeing villains. He returned to Lizard League HQ and reclaimed his leadership from Supreme Lizard, who believed King Lizard had abandoned the League. He proceeded to turn the League into something other than the joke it had become. His first act was to gain control of nuclear missile silos. This was easy because the Guardians of the Globe were out fighting the Sequid invasion. This left Rex-Splode, Shrinking Ray, and Dupli-Kate to fend off against the league. The battle seemed to be in their favor until Dupli-Kate and Shrinking Ray were killed. Rex sacrificed his hand to kill Komodo Dragon, but as soon as he did, King Lizard pulled a gun on him. Lizard shot Rex in the back of the head, but Rex overcame it and fist-fought him until they both passed out. When Brit arrived by order of the government, Lizard used his last breath to shoot Brit in the head, not knowing that he was invulnerable. King Lizard's whereabouts are unknown.
