Plert was a small timid alien creature. He was taken prisoner by the Space Pirate Captain Czemm. When they take Hawkman he is locked in a cell with Plert. Their jailer is Qwesjun and when he offers the prisoner food, Plert sees her as a female of his race, but Hawkman sees Hawkwoman. Hawkman deduces that this is an alien who hypnotically appears as someone the person likes, or would want to see. This alien is the gaseous Qwesjun, and Hawkman defeats him by concentrating on people he hates and turns his frustration against him. Hawkman then defeats Karniss Gor, Veneer, and Drekk, but Captain Czemm has used the space-suit to fly to Hawkman's ship, leaving him and Plert stranded on the wreck. [1]

Katar however was wearing a skin-coating that will allow a body to survive the cold of space for a few minutes. This allows Hawkman to fly to his ship and takes down the Pirate captain. Hawkman continues on with his search for Hawkwoman with Plert as his companion. [2]

To show his gratitude, Plert wants do all he can to help, but a tired and irritated Katar loses his temper. Struck by meteors, the ship loses control, and Katar must make quick repairs, but Plert again gets in the way, causing Hawkman to lose his temper severely. He hits Plert, which enrages the little alien, and causes a transformation. Plert swells up, becoming incredibly strong, and very savage. He attacks Katar, and starts damaging the ship. Hawkman tries to reason with him, but to no avail, and the battle only ends when Plert puts his fist through the hull, and they are both sucked out into hyperspace. [3]

  • This version of Plert, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
