Tork is an enemy of the Guardians of the Galaxy (Charlie-27, Nikki, Starhawk, Martinex T'Naga, Yondu Udonta, Vance Astro). He is a Procyonite alien, a large reptilian biped, covered with dense brown scales, with his back covered with a large brown carapace. The carapace and much of his skin is covered by spikes and raised bumps, and he can shrug off laser pistol fire. His spiked tail can be used as a powerful weapon, and he presumably has at least enhanced human strength. His eyes lack lids.
