At first Manga Khan is at odds with the Justice League International, kidnapping Mister Miracle in order to open trade relations with Apokolips. Later, however, the space trader becomes an ally of sorts to the League, giving them his robot L-Ron, and keeping captive the criminal, Despero.
A gaseous energy being, Manga Khan is unable to physically interact with anything. To this end, he wears a robotic suit which makes him nearly impervious to damage. To aid him in his business dealings, he has created a number of robotic servants, including Hein-9, K-Dikk, and most notably, L-Ron.
Khan has a penchant for melodrama, often breaking into verbose, long winded soliloquies. He has even started a school to teach others how to speak as he does. Graduates include the Scarlet Skier and Mr. Nebula.
