Truk was created by Steve Englehart and first appeared in Green Lantern #202 - Turf!
Major Story Arcs
Truk was one of the several villains working alongside Doctor Polaris against the Green Lantern Corps. A secret weapon, Truk was used to combat John Stewart, and did so successfully, badly injuring him to the point where he needed to be escorted away by other members of the Corps and was put on life support.
It was later revealed that Truk was a disguise being used by Doctor Ub'x who wanted to help Doctor Polaris and his group of villains destroy the Green Lanterns.
Truk wears a large battle suit that resembles that of a semi-truck. From inside the suit he appears to be a normal human being; however, his legs are massive, larger than the rest of his body, quite possibly due to his power(s) and abilities.
